Answer: Barking

Ah the joys of owning a terrier! Unfortunately they are born diggers. All I can say for the digging is secure your fences as best as possible. And give her lots of enviromental enrichment for the back yard. e.g. a sand pit, toys ... If you give her any sort of attention (positive or negative) when she barks you are only adding fuel to the fire. Try purchasing a little water pistol or spray bottle, fill it up with water and a tiny bit of vinegar. Just enough vinegar to taste yucky. Give her a spray in the mouth when she barks. Careful of her eyes though!
