I bought a waterdog about a week ago and he has turned into a salamander, very excited, now i have him in a land aquarium, with a a pond type thing, and a cave, within about 20 mins of him being in there, he already burrowed underground. he sat in one place for the entire day, the next day i saw that he had moved because there was a different break pattern in the soil... Will he ever come back to surface? lol, but seriously, when do they come out of the ground? or is it doing something down there? help would be appreciated

Tiger salamanders are a naturally fossorial (burrowing) species but in captivity and with plenty of hiding spots they do learn to spend a lot of time above ground mine almost never burrow anymore just hang around in there hides or wondering about the tank
How long this takes really depends on the salamander
