Keeping Dogs Out of the Garden

I have a pest that keeps getting in my garden. It is an 8lb longhair miniature dachshund. No matter what I do to fix the gate on my fence this pest keeps getting in. I have heard there is something that can be sprinkled on the ground that when he smells it he will not try to get in. Anyone know what I can do?

Sprinkle a liberal dose of cayenne pepper where he is going under, that usually works. (04/16/2010)

I tried cayenne pepper flakes. My dog ate it. Will try moth balls next. I hate to, but my husband is getting impatient with the dog digging up tomato plants! (05/25/2010)

Moth balls are toxic to both humans and animals. If your dog eats them, the vet should be called immediately.
