If you find your pooch is digging up your yard, consider giving him a designated "dig area." Then make sure you keep the rest of your yard off limits. If he's got some place to burn energy and an outlet for his natural tendency to dig, he's less likely to ruin your yard.
Also make sure make sure your canine gets lots of exercise and attention, and has items to chew, as digging can be a sign of boredom.
