To stop your dog digging in your garden beds, put citronella oil into a spray bottle and spray the area. Dogs hate it.

If you live in an area where bears roam, be careful with the use of citronella oil. I have heard they really like it! Something I would check out first before I sprayed it around the yard or used it in a bug spray on the kids.
Wonder if it would work on the squirrels that are eating plants on my patio garden?
I know cats don't like the smell of oranges, so I was wondering if this would work on the garden to stop them using it for their toilet. Has anyone tried it? Jan UK
We have large dogs who love to dig - think I'll try this. Thanks!
I use something even cheaper. I collect the dog waste and put it into any hole where my dogs dig. I then cover over the hole. Trust me, they won't dig where you bury their waste.
Cheap and recycled. However, NOT recommended for vegetable gardens! LOL
