Houdini they are often named, those dogs who incessantly gouge their way to greener pastures. We humans generally think the dog is simply looking for its "freedom" but a variety of reasons may prompt such behavior:
The dog in this video has never been let inside the home and does not get routinely walked. He started escaping by simply digging under the fence. Since he had been successful at this several times, the cinder block placed at the hole became a mere obstacle in his escape route. The dog responded to this by chewing on the fence and will most likely get more crafty with his escape as more deterrents get placed in his path. His behavior will increase in intensity and this dog will be harder and harder to keep in the yard if the owners do not approach the solution holistically.
By the way, the only place this dog wanted to go to once outside his backyard was to the front door of the house.
