Does anyone else have a problem with their dogs eating house plants? I love Peace Lilies but they don't last long in my house because the dogs eat them! I don't want to have to have to keep the plants up high. How do I keep them from eating my plants? And are there any plants that aren't poisonous but don't taste good to dogs either?

I'd imagine you could spray something on them like bitter apple, but I am not real sure. Hopefully someone will have some good advice for you.

Try doing a google search for poisonous house plants also. I know that there are several out there that people would not expect.

Thankfully my 4 pack do not even get near the plants. I use to have a cat that constantly dug in them and tried to use them for her litter box though. Yuk!

I am horrible with plants. No green thumb here, so no plants for Jersey to try and chew. We had hibiscus plants in pots on the porch for a while and Jersey would chew on the leaves after they fell off but she never ate them while still attached.

Ours only show interest in plants if they are feeling off. They eat the falling leaves before going out to be sick. I only have two plants on the floor. You could try putting something round the lower part of the plant to stop the dogs.

Surprisingly Maggie pretty much ignores my plants. The cats are another story. I don't think anything except putting them up high would work if Maggie really wanted to get them.

I found this page listing plants that are poisonous to dogs. Wow! Are there any that aren't poisonous? This list is huge, plus my Peace Lily is on the list

Thanks for the link. Now the only problem is that I have no idea what any of my 15 plants are named. lol
