    Yep, with the Chuckit, I have to have another ball so she drops first one so I chuck second one.

    Same with the frisbee. She will keep it and chew it up.

    The Chuckit makes good snow balls too.

    I had one dog that found if she dropped her ball in front of the lawn mower, it would launch it. Problem was when it went out front of deck, hit the fence and was heading for my head. THINK QUICK!

    If all the holes are near the fence they are probably trying to be with you. Pass by and interact with them, it may calm them down a bit to know they are not forgotten. Get them a radio and play something that might sound like you a little. If the holes are all over they may be digging to see what is there, or chase what they think might be there.

    Waiting for something you want (in this case for you) can be the longest wait, regardless how long it is.

    And I agree, it is their playpen. Keep it clean and let them dig for fun, not to get away. All mine are street stupid so I have to protect them from too much freedom. Maybe you can teach them to help fill in the holes.

    Rescues often have traumas, some physical and some mental. Patience and understanding are your best help for them.

    My Boykin can carry 2 tennis balls and he’s about half the size of a lab.

    Our Stafford-shire does the same thing. One good thing about it is, it's located in one place. Easy to pick up.

    I built a fenced in pen for two English Bull Terriers about 24 x24 and got the inch by 16x16 patio pavers and completely covered the bottom laying down weed fabric first. Hated to spend so much but realized it was well worth it keeping dirt out of house easy to hose down and impossible for dogs to dig out and let them run rest of yard when I was out with them.

    That’s kinda what I was looking for. I’m not opposed to them digging. They just do it right where they gotta go through and come in the house. My house is brand new. Lowe’s has the 21” square pavers for around $6-7 and I can do that. I’m not trying to pour concrete or anything permanent. Just looking to minimize the tracking in the house. As it is now, when it rains, they get muddy, and have to spend time in decontamination zone ( they’re kennel in the garage) before coming in the house.
