Just place moth crystals in your garden area in a small tin. Animals hate the smell and will not bother going into the area. I used this method with Porcupines in my trees. Placed moth crystals around the base of the tree, and voila, no more Porcupines. Works for rabbits, cats, dogs, and any other small animal that may be a problem in your garaden.
I have two dogs and they keep digging in my flower garden, does anyone know how I can stop them?

Here is a training tip:
For dedicated diggers, provide an "acceptable digging area". Choose an area of the yard where it's okay for your dog to dig, and cover that area with loose soil or sand. If you catch your dog digging in an unacceptable area, interrupt the behavior with a loud noise and say, "no dig". Then immediately take the dog to his designated digging area. When he digs in the approved spot, reward him with praise. Make the unacceptable digging spots unattractive (at least temporarily) by setting rocks or chicken wire into the dirt. Make the acceptable area attractive by burying safe items for him to discover. (05/10/2006)
Would anyone have advice on how to keep a dog from digging in the flower beds? My daughter has a dog and he always digs into my flowers to get cooled off under the flowering shrubs.
Hope you can help.
