    oh forgot to add the biggest point.........................DOG POO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Dogs wont dig in fresh dog poo! So along with letting her in the house I started instead of chucking the poop.... I would put it around the base of my plants...... Sounds gross but hey it worked a treat!

    Thanks for the replies everyone.
    Some of you seem to think I'm being a troll, you're free to judge me however you like.
    If you read that post that you quoted, you should notice when I did things like that it was aimed at admins with a god complex.

    I'm on a pension and the plants the dog is destroying are my food, so is chaining a dog up to be able to eat so bad ?
    I can't afford build a fence even food is a luxury at the moment.

    Thanks for the genuine replies.

    I won't annoy anyone anymore.

    sory mate, it just seemed like extreme measures for a simple problem and to be fair, I did offer up my best suggestion first

    Bundybear - as a last resort we bought a small electric fence to protect our garden. It was a little pricey but has saved us a lot of replanting costs (and our sanity).

    We dont think you were being a troll, just a bit of a laugh i guess.. i agree though it seems like extreme measures.

    but hey you know your circumstances so i am not going to judge

    Tip shops are a great place to get fencing materials for cheap as well.

    Our dogs are the same anything new is history in the yard. We had a housewarming party and was given about 6 plants. We put them inside up on a table for the night. The next day when we awoke there was dirt covering our entire lounge kitchen and dining. The plants were pieces no bigger than a finger.
    We tried putting things on them but they didn't care. They have even stolen and eaten a bag of hot chillies off our back table before so there is not much that's not on the menu.
    We went to bunnings and got some wire and placed it across the side of house and keep all plants there. Havnt had a prob since.

    My pop tried the electric fence for their dog who kept digging. ( they were on a farm) and he got zapped and ran away my nan found him a week later camping out in a paddock. Did stop the digging tho but a bit extreme

    I would also suggest giving him a place to dig. If he has the urge at least he is getting out his energy.

    My dog likes chilli

    The first time she ate some was a bit of a shock but after that she kind of warmed to the idea, and started picking them off the bush.
