Digging In The Yard

by Dana
(Loveland, CO)

Does anyone have a suggestion for digging in the yard? Sunny, my 1 yr old Aussie, digs just the sod up and usually goes no farther. I have a bunch of little golpher holes around the yard where he's removed the sod. He's the first dog I've ever had that digs holes and don't have a clue what to do.

I can't be with him 24/7 or have him on a leash in the yard. He needs to play and run around. He may be a bit bored, but what do I do? I have a crate, but don't use it except for bed at night. He has a doggie door to come in and out when I'm gone for a while.

Thanks for any help.
