Don't leave them in the yard unsupervised. Both digging and killing small animals (prey) are normal dog behaviors.

abscent that you need to secure the bottom of the fence. Ie concrete pad under the fence or you can attach 3=4 feet of expoy or plastic coated chicken wire to the bottom the the existing fence. Lay it flat on the ground on the side the dogs dig from and cover with an inch or more of dirt. Dogs will dig close to the fence they are trying to get under withing a foot or two. The burried chicken wire act as a barrier to the digging th dogs can not get through. However even the coated wire is prone to rusting out when Burried.
