welded wite would be a fairly easy fix, take somehting 12" taller than you realy need and fold 12" of it out into an Lshape put that L bottom facing out into te eighbors yar and affix the top to your current fence, the n use rebar or ground staks to secure the botom to the ground. dogs tendto dig 6-8 inches from their "goal" so by haveint 12" of wire out in their direction theyl dig ontop of the wire hit a blockade and generally give up, you still need to pin it as some get smart and try to push under it but the apron doeswork for digging. (its how many chicken ranchers keep preadators fomr digging IN to their chicken yards.)

The problem is with the neighbor's dogs digging under my fence - not my dogs digging under the fence - so it really isn't my problem but their problem as their dogs are trying to get into my yard and may get hurt. I'm trying to be a good neighbor so that doesn't happen. It really is their responsibility to keep their dogs contained. And as for the chain link - that was replaced years ago after my shepard mix and golden climbed up a snow pile hopped the fence and went to visit the neighbors as they gave them cookies all the time. Again, I was a responsible pet owner and installed a fence they couldn't get over.
