Why Do Dogs Dig?

In no particular order, here are some of the more common reasons that a dog will dig. Lack of exercise. Digging is a good way for a hyped-up, under-exercised dog to burn off some of that nervous energy.

Boredom. Bored dogs need a job to do, something rewarding and interesting, to help the time pass by. Digging is often the ideal solution for a bored dog: it gives him a sense of purpose, and distracts him from an otherwise empty day. The need for broader horizons. Some dogs are just escape artists by nature no matter how much exercise and attention they get, it is nearly impossible to confine them. For a four legged Houdini, it is not the digging in itself that is the reward, it is the glorious unknown that exists beyond the fenceline.

Separation anxiety. To a dog that is seriously pining for your company, digging under those confining walls represents the most direct path to you. Separation anxiety is an unpleasant psychological issue relatively common among dogs but because it is so complex, we will not be dealing with it in details now. Instead, you can find excellent resources for both preventing and coping with these conditions and Curbing the habit.
