How to Keep Dog From Digging Under a Chain Link Fence?

If you are dealing with the problem of your dog digging under a chain link fence, there are several ways to solve the problem. The best way to do this is to first assess the reasons behind the behavior. Dogs will often dig in order to get attention, to bury valuables, or to get out of a confined area. Taking your dog to a safe digging spot is a good idea.

One of the most common methods of preventing digging in a chain link fence is to use a concrete barrier. However, this can be costly and may make your garden space less than desirable. Instead, a bamboo or fabric screen can be hung over the fence to prevent digging. This is a fairly foolproof method. It requires a little extra work, but is well worth it. 

Another way of keeping your dog from digging under a chain link fence is to install an L-Footer. An L-Footer is a wire fence bent at a 90-degree angle. When installed correctly, the L-Footer is almost invisible. You can also place a solid privacy gate or some large rocks around the perimeter of the fence. Although the L-Footer is an expensive solution, it’s a great way to stop your pet from digging under a fence. 

Other ways of stopping your dog from digging under a chain link gate include burying the fence or building a dog friendly privacy fence. A privacy fence can be a great way to deter your pet from getting into your yard, and can be a good way to improve the look of your home. Alternatively, you can purchase a high quality dog fence that you can erect in your backyard. 

Other methods of stopping your dog from digging under a fence include adding a sandbox, a few shrubs, or some loose soil. These can provide your canine companion with some much needed exercise and will help keep his or her attention on the things you want it to focus on. 

Of course, one of the simplest and most cost effective ways to prevent your dog from digging under a chain link is to give it something to do. Some breeds of dogs have an instinctual need to dig, so if your dog is not digging in the normal manner, a sandbox or digging pit is a good start. 

In addition to a sandbox or digging pit, consider a play area that includes a “L-Footer.” That is the best way to get your dog to use the “M” and the “M” is a sandbox. While this method might not be the most exciting, it will keep your canine companion occupied for a long time.
