Voles, or field mice, can be trapped with regular mouse traps baited with peanut butter. Reset the traps as often as necessary until you eliminate the population. Since your dogs have the run of the yard you'll either need to use the kinds of traps that are self enclosed or you'll need to keep your dogs out of the yard until you've controlled the vole population. Wish there were a better solution!
