help for lawn diggers
megz megz is offline 04-16-2009, 03:55 AM

so i thought i would share....
Boomer had this habit of digging up a couple spots in the lawn, we are in a rental which had dogs before, i wonder if this had something to do with it, who knows. well we bought Scotts spot master lawn repair, i think thats what it's called, and some terracycle dig stop. it has Worked!!
we filled the hole with dirt filler and put the spot repair on the top and then sprayed the shite out of it with the dig stop. the dogs have left it alone and we now have lots of grass coming in!!
we have tryed a ton of other things with no prevail but this finally worked. i thought i would just pass it along

Anybody ever try putting the dog's own feces in the whole and burrying it? That is a much cheaper (inexpensive), more economical way to do it. The smell of their own feces tends to deter them from digging, plus it works as a fertilizer, and then you can just throw down some grass seed and watch it grow! I used to live in base housing, and they were very specific about having "craters" in the yard from dogs! I always used their own feces (we had to keep that cleaned up too), and got grass seed to fix the bare spots in the lawn! Good luck and keep us posted!

LOL! In that instance... yes, I believe it would, which is when you should use whatever method of deterrent you choose, either some pineapple slices (not sure why it deters the dog from eating his own feces, but people have spoken wonders on this method), or something like Deter from, I believe it was in Foster&Smith or PetEdge catalog or some similiar catalog. Then, go from there!

Wow, both are great ideas! Lady sometimes digs a bit, not craters, but she hates when I lock her out, like if I'm mopping or something, and she "punishes" me.

Those are great idea. My boy Lucky (seen in my signature) is the digger. He is so very proud of himself! He started around Christmas when he found a mole and he has been looking for another one ever since. At least this is what I has told myself. Hmmm, I will have to make a note of that stuff. coool. Thanks

I really only have one consistent digger, Freeway, I consider him to be helping me when I clean up the dog dirt. I got 4 dogs so lots of dog dirt. Freeway, saves me the time of having to dig my own hole If only I could teach them to put the dog dirt in the holes and cover it but then Life would be to easy
