I am trying to find something that works to keep my dogs out of the flower beds. They love the mulch and dig and lay in it. I have tried several things from the pet store but you have to put it out everyday or it doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Debbie,

That is a difficult issue to solve but there are several options for dealing with a dog that loves to dig. Some folks have had success with various deterrents such as a low electric fence wire, dog and cat repellents, or a wire mesh set over the soil in these areas to discourage them from digging there.

The following web sites have many more suggestions and information which will be helpful to you:
