    I have a dog that keeps chewing up and tearing out my drip system in my back yard. Does anyone have any ideas on how to rig up the drip system so the dog won't do this? I don't want to have to put a fence around the plants in the yard and he would probably find a way around it anyway.

    I've heard of people using a pepper spray to keep critters from eating their plants, one taste and they leave stuff alone. Don't know if that would work with your dog. I've also heard that rain washes it off so you have to put it on again after a rain. I may try some later this year since last year the deer ate almost all my glads.

    Thank you Kent, that might work for the chewing part.
