    I agree try the long lead or fence off the holes.

    I have thought about that or putting red pepper flakes… not sure if that's a good idea either. He would probably LOVE it… Lol

    I actually had the trees planted OUTSIDE the fence because I figured he would dig them up too… Lol

    I'm wondering if there is a way I could actually fence off the heads he seems to LOVE and still give the sprinkler room?!!

    Yes!! Get some chicken wire! I've done this when I plant new trees because the rabbits will chew on the stalk when they are young. It's so thin of a fence the sprinkler should still be able to do its job.

    The only thing with putting up a fence is you aren't actually teaching him not to eat the sprinkler heads. We put a chicken wire fence all around our pond when we found out Frankie had an affinity for trying to jump into it instead of training him not to like we did for Brutus. Granted Brutus was a pup so he knew from the ground up not to mess with the pond, but now every time we try to take the fencing down he looks to jump. I'm not sure if at this point if we can train him to stay away. My advice would be to leash him and pull him back every time he goes for them. It will be hard on your for a while to have to go out with him, but I think it will be worth it in the end.

    Teach him "leave it." Get one of his fav treats, put it on the floor. When he goes for it, cover the treat with your hand or foot and say "leave it." If he does reward with a treat but not the one you used on the floor. This behavior modification will take a little time.
    It worked for Jewel picking up and gnawing on twigs.
    Wally, you better listen to mommy!

    That's what I did with our French and he never bothered them again.

    How could I put it in the ground so that Mr. Wally wouldn't pull it up?!! My sprinkler heads pop-up to spray… I might have to poke a hole in them?!!

    I just used a wooden stake, or even a piece of rebar.
