CALLER: Has a puppy chewing up the irrigation black tubings in the yard. Needs help to stop the problem and repair ideas.
"I just have comments on the puppy chewing problems discussed this morning. I am a volunteer with K9 search and rescue, and had the same problem when my dog was a puppy in terms of chewing on sprinkler tubing. I applied Crib Ox to all exposed tubing (it's non toxic, just unpleasant) and it worked like a charm. I would strongly recommend giving the a/c hose chewing dog a DIFFERENT chew toy so the dog does not learn how great the tubes are to chew.
Thanks for a great show!" -Melanie G.
CALLER: Has home built in the 80's with stucco coming off in patches at the bottom of the home near a sidewalk. Do you need to re-stucco the entire home or can patch work be done to fix it?
