Groundhog population explosion

I enjoy living in an urban neighborhood where we have so many "critters" but lately we seem to be experiencing a population explosion of groundhogs. My dogs have killed five young groundhogs in the past month and several others have made narrow escapes. I assume they are coming from the alley behind my house which a neighbor has closed off. The area is getting overgrown. Now the groundhogs are destructively burrowing under my back porch and my central air unit. Short of appointing my dogs permanent woodchuck wardens, how do I encourage these critters to move along? - kayceewolf -
