Do you have a problem in your garden with your dog that I haven’t covered yet?  I’d love to hear about it and hopefully come up with a solution for you and others – if you have a problem then there is little doubt that others will have had it too.

    I have two HUGE gardening issues…

    1) my yard is on a very steep slope…our house is at the bottom of the slope

    2) after all the snow has melted, the bottom half of the yard is pure mud

    We have a big, fenced in back yard, but I am forced to take my four dogs on leash into the front yard to do their business. I am currently unemployed and would like to spend my time fixing up the backyard so that the dogs can enjoy it!

    Thanks so much!

      Hi Robin

      I think I need a little more information and some pictures to be able to give some advice. I’ll email you and if we come up with a solution that works for you will (with your permission) post details later so that others can benefit too.

    What a great site – I wish I had found it sooner!
    My question is about how to stop our 18 month old dog from digging holes in the lawn. Despite my best efforts to teach him that this is not OK, he still digs sometimes when my back is turned. As the lawn is shared with my two boys, aged 5 and 9, getting rid of the grass is not an option. I fill the holes and reseed them, but he keeps returning to the same spots to dig. I’ve resorted to putting chicken wire over the affected areas to stop him redigging the holes, but this is not very boy or mower friendly! I’ve noticed that there are often tree roots in the holes where he tends to dig (we have a large silver birch). Could there be something about these roots that is attracting him? And how do we discourage him? Any advice would be appreciated.

      Hi Gill

      From the work I have done with another reader, it appears that digging is related to who owns the garden, and possibly the dog’s boredom levels. I’ll email you and see what can be done to help you.
