I took mine to the hole he dug told him NO and he hasn't done it again. But my dogs are well behaved and listen. I'm Alpha dog.

Fill the hole almost all the way. About a inch from the top lay some chicken wire fencing down, and then finish filling it. When the dogs tries to dig and drags it nails across the wire it will stop. Worked like a charm for my dog.

Remove the dirt from that area and replace it with other dirt. (something may be under that spot)

dogs dig generally out of boredom. maybe you need to spend more time with him, take him to a dog park or more frequent walks, or he needs someone to play with? not suggesting you get another dog, just doggy playdates or more outings with you.

Dogs get destructive when you leave them alone to long. It's how a lot of dogs act when they have separation anxiety. Spend more time with your dog and maybe keep him close to you more so he doesn't feel like a loner.

Moth balls - they don 't like them! He will stop immediately! We did this when we had a dog who was digging & it worked!

your dog might do that because there might be a burrow underground and he can smell it or your dog isn't getting enough excercise and uses his energy by digging holes.

One way is that if you don't take you dog out, You'll may want to do that!! And when you do just go different ways like 2 or 3 ways every time you go out!!
