The only thing the Bagel digs (in our backyard) is his basement every summer when the temp gets up over 100. He has a nice basement dug under his doghouse which is covered with a shade device already and he ignores the basement except June/July/August/September when he likes to lie on the cool wet earth. Now out in the desert, he digs every lizard, ground squirrel, rabbit hole I will let him but he has succeeding in running such critters out of his backyard. I have mostly desert shrubs, agave, some cactus, and a couple trees and the Bagel doesn't bother them either. The Bagel is a fine Gentlebeagle.Quote:Originally posted by Charlie mom:
I see that some of you leave your beagles in the yard and garden for long hours. Do they tend to destroy things and chew plants? Charlie likes to dig, still do, I found two big holes yesterday. Chewed off sprinkler heads. That's why I can't trust him too long in the yard.
