It might help Janis. The only problem is that she is eating it from random areas in the driveway. But I'd be willing to try anything that keeps her leash, chain, fence or muzzle free. Thanks Janis. I appreciate your response. :)

Depends on how severe your allergy is. If it is severe enough to close up your throat, i would say both ends would probably close up. So Anonymous, you may want to give us your name at this point so we know what to put on your headstone.

LOL! The long driveway is worth it to me Hippy. That's why I have a skidsteer loader and a snowplow. I still miss the dump truck though. But at least I can borrow one from work.

If I remember correctly, you have a pretty long driveway, so paving it would be a very expensive endeavor and most likely out of the question. Fencing along both sides of the driveway is probably out too.

The muzzle seems like the only alternative but what a pain in the butt that would be for … Read more

I'm not sure why Yin, but I wish she would stop. When I let her out I have to be right there with her to stop her if she tries to eat it. A leash works if I only have her outside for a short time, but she loves to be outside with us.

I am so sorry my friend. I am glad she is recovering well. I had to look up shale. WOW! I thought it was going to be plant base or bark like where maybe there was something you could spray around the tree to detour her away. (Like fox urine or orange peels to keep … Read more
