Default Digging & nibbling problem

I have a 4 year old white German shepherd named Sugar. Lately, she's been
digging holes all over the backyard. She's never done this before this
summer. I know that some dogs dig so they can nap on cool dirt, but this
doesn't seem to have anything to do with where she sleeps. Also, she's
taken to nibbling on her skin in one area on her hind quarters. She's done
this so often that she now has a bare patch of pink skin showing through her
otherwise beautiful coat. I don't know if these behaviors are related to
the fact that she's tied on a trolley line that stretches across the
backyard, but she's known for digging out of the yard and so I have no
choice but to keep her tied up all day. I don't know what else to do for
her. Any suggestions?
