Ok folks I have a dachshund who thinks he is a backhoe. Yes, I know its the breeds natural instinct to dig after critters in the ground and that's what they were bred for butt.... this guy takes it to a whole new level. So far this week I have shoveled 3 heaping wheelbarrows full of dirt to fill his holes and I am only 2/3 the way across my yard. I did this last summer. Now I'm doing it again. The family is just too attached to him to get rid of him.
The up side is I have NO moles in my backyard. However, my backyard was starting to look like a well used mine field.
I thought of getting a shock collar and busting him every time he starts digging. Before I stooped to that I thought I would ask you all if you had any ideas of correcting this problem?
