I am using Boehringer's DIG labelling kit for dot blot and southern blot. 
Just a few observations as follows:

1. Less sensitive than P32 probe, therefore you need to put more target 
DNA on membrane.

2. DIG-labelled fragment probe seems more sensitive than DIG-labelled 
oligo probe.

3. Re-probing membrane appears inconsistent.
