How to Keep Dogs from Digging Under a Fence GateSome dogs love to escape when confined to a fenced yard, and the easiest way out is often by digging under the gate. Position the timber in the gate opening so there is just a small gap between the timber and bottom of the gate.
Secure the timber in place by toenailing galvanized nails or screws through each end of the timber into the gate posts.
NOTE: If you have a metal or chain link fence, put PVC tubing around every one of my metal fence posts.

How To Baby Proof A Fireplace Hearth – Easy Step By Step DIY If you have a small child running around then you already know a fireplace can be a safety hazard. How To Easily Stop A Squeaky Floor On Hardwood Carpet Or Linoleum Floors In our upstairs guest bedroom there are sections of the floor that squeak when you walk.

The easiest way for a dog to escape is by digging under the gate, since it has a gap under it to allow the gate to swing open and closed. Elevate the chain link fence from the ground and hook an electric fence charger up to the entire chain link fence at the bottom only. Hammer 3 to 4 foot pieces of rebar into the dirt a few inches from the bottom of the fence. This is back breaking work but it can solve the problem and your doggy will never leave your yard again. Once the rebar is in place, put the large bricks or concrete blocks where the rebar goes right into the holes of the bricks. The dog can remove concrete cinder blocks, bricks, 2x4s, and rocks that we have placed along the bottom of the fence to try and prevent the constant digging. Use a staple gun on the top 1 to 2 feet of the chicken wire and secure it to the wooden fence. Do this every two weeks and it is almost guaranteed your large or small puppy will never dig there again.

The soil here is dirt and clay material and super easy to dig through especially when it rains and the ground is wet. When your doggy gets close enough to the wire, your dog will start to figure out not to go near the fence again.
The wood stakes can be used but may not be a true permanent solution rather than using rebar. These digging deterrent systems do not hurt your dog, they simply make them slightly uncomfortable enough to deter them.
