HELP ! Dogs destroy outside decorations

2029 Views 15 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Blarghity
Last year I didn't decorate at all due to the fact that we live where there are from 5 to 10 dogs that tear everything up.All year I have junk in my yard from them tearing up other neighbors yards. What I would like to know is if anyone has ideas for props that the dogs can not get to or are unable to tear them up.
I have 3 inside dogs and 2 outside dogs and they were taught not to tear things up .I can leave them alone and come home to the house just as I left it .Same if I leave them outside.I love Halloween and really hate it when I cant decorate outside
any Ideas ?

So... three ideas:
1. The suggested fence around your haunt (but not around your many acres). You can find 4 foot high plastic fencing at Home Depot/Lowes/ etc. that is quite reasonable. Or maybe chicken wire at a local farm supply.

2. Motion controlled sprinklers: Not sure if they're available, but a motion sensor turning on a sprinkler valve (maybe two or three) might scare the dogs away.

3. Motion controlled skunk spray (my fav): when detected, a skunk spray coats the dog... who in turn goes home... who in turn.......

4 (I know, I said 3). An electric fence: they really do have electric fences to keep animals away from ponds (so they don't eat the Koi/Goldfish).

5. (sorry, too much fun). A servo controlled BB gun with vision sensor to detect dogs.
