2) Trying to Escape Your Yard
Are you noticing your dog only digs along the perimeter of your yard? If so, he’s more than likely trying to get out of your fenced property and escape. Don’t take it personally, though! Your pooch may be trying to explore the world, catch the neighborhood cat, or perhaps he finds the next door dog attractive and is seeking out a mate! If your pooch is digging these holes when you’re not home, it could also be a sign of separation anxiety.
