i give them a big box to hide in depending on size you can use a refriderator box or something like that and put a kane or likewise heat mat in there and they will go in there at night. i dont have any problems at all with them digging. essentually giving them an artificial burrow. they just want to feel enclosed. now you can get elaborate with your box and its not a bad idea because the fridge box wont last long with rain and everything else. use your imigination think winter as well and insulate it. you will be glad you did. i have seen some pretty cool ones made from dog houses and camper tops from pickups.
