ok so recently we have put up a vegetable garden in my backyard. i was confident that my 7 month old (Milo) was trained well enough not to go in there but was not confident with the 12 week old (Bindi) so the garden is elevated about a foot off the ground but this did not deter Bindi. She would jump up and pull plants out and Milo would bark at her from outside and try pull her down so she doesnt get in trouble (such a good friend). So we made more adjustments and put up a chain wire fence about another foot high. this now stops Bindi, but for some reason, it has enticed Milo to start jumping in there and pull out all our plants which are getting expensive to keep replacing...
we cant just keep going higher with the fence as to keep milo out we'd also be keeping ourselves from getting in there as he jumps quite high.
Does anyone know any training methods or ways of keeping him from going in the garden? he never does it when we are around, only when noone is watching. my parents will not allow them to be free anymore until they stop getting in there, although their locked up area is almost 10sqm so its large enough but i like them to have the entire yard to run in.

Hi, maybe pouring pepper (or similar) around the boundary of your gardan may deter Milo and Bindi from entering the garden? I've heard it works, but haven't tried it myself.

My trainer has told me to use lemon spray, and whenever you catch them jumping in there, spray the lemon in their mouths and tell them no. This will make them think that jumping in there makes a nasty taste in their mouths.
