    Default Eucaplypt or pine effect on dogs?

    We've spent the w/e gardening. and were putting down tambark and a a new path. The dogs were helping (not).
    Brian kept vacuuming up great lungfulls of the scent, and then running around the garden like a nutter.
    then ran up onto the deck, and straight over the 20foot drop balcony, to charge and deck me, before running off on another zoomy chase.
    Nuts, Like, he's nuts anyway, but it seems to be the new tambark making him super stupid.
    anyone's dog get this reaction to new stuff in the garden.

    I reckon a strong smell like that would sting a bit.

    Smelling turps would probably make a dog a bit light headed too...

    Or just being with his people in the garden.

    Never had dogs go weird after smelling something but one of my cats goes absolutely mental doing zoomies and running around like a nutcase when he smells bleach

    Yep. As Hyacinth said, being with his people in the garden is enough to send my nutter even nuttier. He likes to stand or lay on whatever I'm trying to do, but he's not averse to smacking me behind the knees at top speed with the biggest stick (usually a freshly-pruned branch actually) he can find. This weekend he decided he was going to dig a massive hole under the fence because I was in the yard working. Not sure what the aim was, but then Abe doesn't always seem to have a purpose in mind. Sal stands and looks at him like the idiot he is shaking her head

    He was helping...

    Frosty often tries to help with digging and such. We sometimes practice team digging at the beach - where the craters are easy to refill.
