Drive some short stakes into the ground throughout the bed.

The problem is dogs love to scratch and dig in the dirt. Some dogs do it more than others. The only thing I have found to keep them out of my flower beds is a small fense that I bought at the hardware store. It just put a barrier around the flower bed and the dogs seems to stay out of them after I did this. I also added some cactus plants and plants that had thorns on them to keep the dogs out of the flower beds.

If these are your dogs, my best suggestion is just to take them out on a leash and not let them near the beds or put up fencing.

The other choice is to treat it like any other training exercise where you teach them no or leave it and reward them when they stay away from the area.

If they are other people's pooches, fencing is probably best.

Never use things like pepper sprays, bleach, or any chemicals to deter dogs from going to the area as it can cause serious harm to the animals.

Post back with your solution so others can learn what worked for you!

The best way to keep dogs from digging in a flower bed is to anchor chicken wire down around the plants. You can use plain wire cut into pieces at least 10 inches long and then bent into a "U" shape to use as anchors, just push the anchors through the chicken wire, making sure to catch at least one twist of the chicken wire, and push into the soil as far as possible.

If you have mulch down, you will have to pick it up or rake to the side while putting down the chicken wire. This works great over the top of flower bulbs too, if squirrels are a pest at digging up and eating your tulip bulbs.
