I have two Jack Russells and they love to dig. When they start to dig we shake an empty can with some pennies in it and in a deep voice yell, "No dig".
If you can figure out why the dog is digging that would help. For us, it is not boredom; we walk them at least one mile per day and play ball with them. (we make them balance the checkbook, too) If a mouse walked over a spot in 1997 our girl Baci will dig until the last remnant of its scent is undetectable. We once had a shrew in the flowerbed adjacent to the house.Baci kept insisting we let her out. It being summer and skunk season we didn't want to go out again. The little brat went behind the couch and was scratching at the wall to get out. We relented and let them out. Phil & Baci dug a hole about a foot deep in a matter of seconds. (The shrew did not make it)
Fran -- I'm owned by a couple of terriers also. My two Westies have a tendency to dig also. Your comments about your JRs cracked me up!! I am sure they are smart enough to balance your checkbook!!
