By Invisible Fence® Brand on 06-15-2020

Many pet owners struggle with keeping their dogs from digging under their fence. We put together our top tips on how to keep your dog from digging under your fence to prevent him from getting lost or running out into the street.

Why is my dog trying to dig under my fence?

Before trying to change your pet’s behavior, it is important to understand why that behavior occurs. Dogs dig under fences for a variety of reasons. Many dogs are simply bored or curious about what is going on outside. Squirrels in your yard, neighbors walking by, or cars driving down the street can be enough to tempt them to dig under your fence and investigate.

Other dogs are just natural diggers. The dirt provides a cool reprieve from the heat and they are looking for a way to entertain themselves.

Ways to prevent your dog from digging under your fence.

There are several different methods to keeping your dog from digging under your fence. Keeping your dog stimulated with their favorite dog toy and exercised can help prevent them from digging under your fence due to boredom. 

Another solution is Invisible Fence® Brand’s Boundary Plus® Technology.
