Our yard seems to have a critter magnet. Mostly, woodchucks, skunks,
squirrels, occasional racoons, and a few deer. It has cover an
and the food includes our garden.
We've tried fencing the garden, which helps. But, in the end, they
always get in. Trapping and 'relocating' also helps, but the supply
seems inexhaustible. And, by the time I know that I need to set the
trap, the damage is often already well under way.
So, we were thinking, dog. Maybe a dog would just discourage all
these guys. If anyone has any pro/con to share on this, I'd
appreciate hearing it.
Or, we could just grow garlic. Nobody seems to eat that.
Except frogs :-))
i would certainly consider getting a dog we had skunks and othe
animals around here for awhile but since our son brought his dog home
few years back there sure are a lot less of them around.
she is a mid size swiss style dog. she is an outside dog so can tak
care of things when these animals decide to show their noses lol.
the down side is if u have a dog especially with those kinds of animal
around its an absolute must to keep all of the dogs shots such as rabie
and distemper up to date and those sure dont come cheap as well u have
dog to clean up behind, feed and water lol.
but thats far better than the animals stealing all your grub and th
love, attention and companionship u give the dog is given back on
hundred fold so it makes things well worth the extra chores lol.
good luck, sockiescat
