Help me foil a canine escape artist.

My 1/2 acre yard is fenced with chain link, but Doug Dog has dug his way out a few times. When it happens I wedge a concrete block in the hole, and that stops him, but recently he's been just moving to another spot. Doug's about the size of a large chihuahua.
I'm considering these options:
1. Plug with concrete blocks as needed. (Not beautiful but cheap.)
2. Roll out a flat 2-foot apron of chicken wire inside the fence all around, with one edge secured to the fence with ties, and the other edge either staked or weighted with a block every few feet. (Have done something like this in other parts of the yard and it seems to work.)
3. A commercial solution. (What might they offer? How much will I pay?)
Any experience with this? Any other ideas?
