That sounds terrible.

Instead of a shock collar, try a citronella collar.  It's the same concept, but it doesn't use pain.  It just spritzes their nose with some cintronella.

Is there any chance there are critters in your yard?  Like moles or something?  Seem like her could be noticing the mole when it comes out for the night (~11pm) and then digging in the yard trying to get him.

Good luck.

many pups behave like this when alone at night,you could try making a stress box to keep him otherwise occupied, basicly its a cardboard box filled with scrunched up paper and tasty treats,it will make a bit of mess as your pup pulls it all apart but much easier to fix than chewed furniture and much less stressful than the noise
