Pansy attack

Asked April 17, 2018, 9:42 AM EDT

I have an 11 month doodle puppy. Last week I planted pansies in planter boxes on my balcony. She is eating them, pulling plants out, and making a general mess with the dirt. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do to deter her from doing so? Karen

Good morning Karen,

A few suggestions that come to mind would be to use a barrier around your containers like a small fence using chicken wire and then to contact your vet to see if there are any labeled sensory deterrents that will help. I do know they have such products to help train dogs from chewing furniture and personal items. Hope this helps!
