    What type is your fencing. Perhaps solve the problem of why he's trying to get through. If you have a dog, if they're friendly, I'd suggest a doggie play date.

    Can you use plastic cable ties to hold the links together. They come in bundles in the electrical department in various sizes. They are quite strong and can be pulled tight. We used them to repair the chain ink fencing on our dog kennels. They will break after of few years of weather but seem to work well for fixing chain link fencing.

    Bury chicken wire along the base of the chain-link fence so that when their dog starts digging, it will encounter the wire, which will discourage further digging.

    take a seperate piece of chain link a bit larger than the hole. match up the openings so it wont be as noticable. Use metal zip ties to seccure the 2 pieces of chain link fencing together all the way around. this will strengthen the "weave" as well as prevent the hole from getting any bigger. Hope this helped. most hardware stores carry metal zipties, the dog may chew through the plastic ones.

    That is!

    The plastic ties might just do the trick, that is a good idea from Gk.

    Another suggestion is to contact the chain link fence people and get them to fix it and then let the neighbor how much it is to fix the damaged fence. Take pictures of the dog doing the digging for evidence.

    Then place a healthy supply of heavy rocks along the fence so Fido cannot come over without an invitation.
