Similarly one may ask, how do I stop my dogs from digging holes?
If you catch your dog digging in an unacceptable area, interrupt the behavior with a loud noise and firmly say, "No dig." Then immediately take them to the digging zone. Make the unacceptable digging spots unattractive (at least temporarily) by placing rocks or chicken wire over them.
Beside above, why is my dog digging holes? Dogs may dig because of a predatory instinct or they may be digging to bury bones or toys. They will also dig a hole if it is too hot because digging exposes cool earth and provides a small shaded, shelter. If your dog is digging under a fence or next to a gate he may simply be trying to get out of the garden.
