Hello, I have two German shepherds that are eating my bushes outside, anyone have any ticks/trips/repellents that have actually worked? I’ve tired vinegar, pepper, lemons nothing seems to work!
We keep our dogs very busy with walks and toys they can chew on or play with we even got a outdoor pool.
But there are time where they need to be outside for a couple hours alone so no eyes are on them.
Any advice would be appreciated!

My dog sort of does the same thang but doesn't seem to be eating them. I'm theorizing that shredding the roots might be good for its teeth...

My pup loves to pull a plant out after I've just planted it and shake it. I have no repellent suggestions, the only thing that works for me is teaching a 'leave it' and distraction.

Obviously your best bet is not to allow them access to the bushes while unsupervised so you can teach them a solid 'leave it'. If you must leave them outside while you're not present to supervise/train, then I'd suggest putting up a secondary fence to keep them from being able to access the bushes/plants that they are chewing on.

Why in Heaven's name would you allow your dog to do that?? I assume these are NOT your plants? And, NO, shredding roots are not the way to keep your dog's teeth healthy - try brushing, or actual dog appropriate chews. Good grief.....

So... You're saying that these ARE your plants that you're allowing you dog to tear up & destroy? I still don't think allowing him to chomp on the foliage is appropriate, and definitely not what a responsible dog owner would do for 'teeth cleaning', but as long as it's YOUR garden he's destroying, okee-dokee.
