How do I keep my dog from digging up my yard & chewing up my fence?

Question by jam4650: How do I keep my dog from digging up my yard & chewing up my fence?
My dog digs holes all over the yard. Some are by the house for shade. Some are by the fence – he likes to play with the neighbors’ dogs. Still others are random. He is a large mix-breed about 11 months old. He also chews constantly on our wooden fence. He even tears off slats and chews them up around the yard. I worry about him hurting himself. We’ve tried chemicals and cayenne. We’ve even tried the poop in the hole method. He has several cow hooves that he loves to chew on. I’m at my wits end. He’s a great dog other than this. He’s also chewed up our cable cord, water hose, etc…Help!

Protect Your Trees from Rutting Deer

Protect Your Trees from Rutting Deer

The vinyl tree guards are easily installed by wrapping them onto the tree trunk from the base upward.

Frederick, MD (PRWEB) September 20, 2012

The first day of fall season hits this week bringing cooler weather, crisp breezes, colorful foliage and apple harvests. Unfortunately, fall is also the season for deer rut. Rut generally lasts from mid-September into late November depending on the region., an industry leader with over 25 years of wildlife control experience, explained, “Rut is the fall mating season for deer. Bucks tend to go a little wild trying to attract does. While good for nature rut can cause major damage to young trees.”

During rut, bucks will rub their antlers on the bark of trees one to three inches in diameter, preferring smooth barks such as cedars, cherry, birch, mesquite, maples and magnolias. The rubbing helps remove the velvet from the antlers, and coats the twigs, bark, and leaves with the scent of the buck.

Rubbing of the antlers on the bark can gouge and strip the bark from the trees causing anything from minor cosmetic damage to girdling which is fatal for the tree. The damaged bark also exposes sensitive plant tissue that is then susceptible to pests and diseases.

In addition to the rubbing of antlers deer bucks will also put on a show of assertion by thrashing and battering against a tree. This can cause the tree major damage and has even been known to snap trees in half. recommends using Vinyl Rut Guards to protect susceptible trees from rutting bucks. The Vinyl Rut Guards are easy to install by wrapping the guard around the trunk from the bottom up. “While, repellents are a popular deer control method which gets great results for deer browse we do not recommended them for rutting deer, since bucks become erratic and daring during rut,” says

For closely planted trees deer fencing can be used to create small enclosures of multiple trees. Simple cut the fencing to the proper length and secure in place with rebar or angled steel posts.

It is best to protect young trees before any signs of damage since deer are habit forming and will continue to return to the same area doing more damage to already wounded trees.

What’s it like owning a French Bulldog?

Question by Jaimie: What’s it like owning a French Bulldog?
I am looking into getting a small dog and I have always wanted a Frenchie. I would like some feedback on those who own or have owned a Frenchie to clear up some of the “facts” web sites have offered. I already have a 2 yr old boston terrier at home for a brother. Any feedback would be awesome. Thank you!

French Bulldogs are really cute but they are SOOOO expensive. I would recommend going to your local shelter.

Nice “dog Supplies” photos

A few nice dog supplies images I found:

Project 365 — 3/365 — Panhandling Prohibited

Image by Roshan Vyas
Today’s photo is from in front of what would be a very convenient parking lot for me if it weren’t for the crazy hours its meters are active. Most street parking meters in SF are active until 6pm. This lot also uses parking meters, but these go to 11 12 midnight! Unless you are going to move your car at midnight, the only convenient free time to park here is on Sundays. In case you think no one from the city could possibly be checking the meters that late, the ticket I received at 11:21pm a few months ago proves there is absolutely nothing better to be doing that late. It’s not like the area has the most active nightlife in SF. I wouldn’t consider Fillmore in Pac Heights and Lower Pac Heights as big a destination for cars as the Marina, Cow Hollow, or The Mission, but keeping these hours somehow makes sense.

Anyways, the story I wanted to tell is based on the Panhandling Prohibited sign. A couple of weeks ago I drove home late on a Friday with a bunch of dog supplies. It was raining pretty hard so I parked in the lot while I brought stuff in. There was a guy asking for a money at the entrance to the lot. I’ve seen him around before in front of Mollie Stone’s and he’s always really nice. As I was going between my car and apartment a few times, he kept letting me know to have a good night and my car was still safe. When I finally came down to move my car, I decided to give him a couple of bucks since it was raining so hard. He was really appreciative and as I was walking away he said "Have a nice drive!" Reflexively, I happily said back "You too!"
