This the 1st time in a couple of years that I have again planted a garden. Now that the peppers, Tomatoes Cuecumbers & eggplant have begun to sprout the dogs want to spend time in the garden grazing. less than a dozen plants so I am not going to put a fence around my garden. They really want to nose around in the organic soil and now I remember they were eating broccoli & egg plant squash several years ago. Any ideas on how to keep them out. I was thinking pepper tea. Garlic is one of their favorite spices in Ho-Made dog treats

I used to have to put stakes, tall metal ones, at the corners of the garden and tie a nylon thread through the holes in each stake. That created a physical barrier for my lab.

My dogs found the low chicken wire fence I put up to be a great hurdle to jump as they raced around my yard. I now garden at the side and front of the house, leaving the back yard to the dogs. :-/

My dogs wear the Invisible Fence collars, so I have the option of running the wire from the edge to surround a garden plot, but it isn't worth the expense to have the Fence folks come do the work, and I don't want to confuse the dogs about when they can and can't go in that area (I would disconnect that segment in the off season). But if you have a dedicated garden plot, a collar is one expensive answer.

I like the Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler.
