    What's the size of that chihuahua and have you thought about growing an N. rajah? Ooops, I just re-read your post and see you want a solution that's safe for the dog too. Where do your plants live?

    the plants are outside sitting next to the house where they get about half day sun. she is an australian deer cihuahua, has longer legs and jumps on top of the tables and just about anything else....its a tough chore to always have to watch her when shes outside but since the spring time is here the dogs go out for most of the day.

    I had the same thing happen. My Lucy decided to kill some of my VFTs, but the poor little thing looked so innocent afterwards....




    Anyway, I decided to build a fortress (as Bruce once called it ). It's basically a wooden base with a fence wire + chicken wire "lid". It keeps out the birds, ground squirrels, and of course Lucy (it doesn't keep out aphids or mealybugs though). This season I upgraded it and made it much taller and a bit bigger as I will be having tall pitchers growing in.

    Here is what it looked like last year:



    There are many ways to keep your dog out of your plants. Don't listen to Bruce and get a rajah!

    Good luck!

    I had a similar experience with my Chihuahua/Jack Russel mix last year. The great Vegicide of 2007 left me with only a fraction of the VFTs I used to have. :-\

    My solution has merely been "Keep the dog(s) off of the deck while everyone's gone."
