How to stop dogs digging?

Recently we've had an influx of beach crabs. The dogs, who rarely dug before, are now digging every day chasing these bloody crabs. I've tried putting different powders down to make them smell awful as well as putting their poo into the holes. Nothing is working. Help!

Do they always dig in the same place? Blow up a couple of balloons and bury them lightly where they dig. Next time they dig, they will pop the balloons and get a fright which will hopefully deter them doing it again.
... not sure how it would work with the crabs though...

No balloons! They are a choke hazard for dogs and everything else.
Keep burying the poo - if nothing else, you will be enriching the soil.
I would probably go with the chicken wire solution myself.
Oh, and citronella placed strategically in likely places may also help.
My dogs have a designated dig spot - which has the odd toy and other thing buried there occasionally. It's one way to control the digging, by reducing the overall spread of potholes around the yard.
