To be honest, the most reliable solution is a fence (and/or some time-intensive training), but there are some other things you can try. Some gardeners report success with repellent sprays, either home-made from garlic and red pepper or the purchased types such as "Get Away" Animal Repellent which is formulated to repel animals, including dogs. (It smells lemony, by the way.)
