Digging Holes again

6 posts in this topic

Now that there isn't much snow in the yard anymore, the dogs are back to digging holes again. Uuggghhh!!!!!!!!!

I have 2 lab mutts that keep wrecking my yard. Areas that had nice grass are now mud and/or holes. I've heard urinating in the area helps. Ever tried it? Any other ideas?

I have that same problem, my two labs love to wreck my yard. Ive never heard of the urinating thing. One thing ive tried that works for a little while was to put their e collers on then i sit at the window waiting for it and give a zap. That seamed to work for a while but a couple days later their right back at it, I think if i were a lil bit more persistent with it i might break the habit.

had a dog that did that too, I think I bought something at a petstore that was sprayed in the area to stop it. Otherwise catching them in the act and giving a jolt should learn them quick too

If they keep digging in the same hole you could try putting some dog doo in the bottom of it. That worked for my dogs. The old timers will tell you to fill any hole a dog digs with water and hold their head under for a while. A little much, but it might work. After catching my dog chewing up one of my favorite pairs of boots I took said boot and wore him out with it. On the plus side he never chewed another pair of boots, on the minus side he would hide out any time he saw me putting boots on for the next few months.

My dog has done this as well. We tried the dog doo thing and it works fairly well. Another thing that works if you know the place where he usually digs is to put pepper down. Usually they will smell the area before digging. It was kind of funny watchin her smell and then sneeze like crazy and run away smile

    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
    • the thing that trips the latch is worn or broken.    i think   will take apart and look if i set hook hard the bail rackets pops up and lets line out won't close some of time...have to do manually
