Siberian Husky and Staffy X..digging up plants all the time

Hi there, our two dogs (5mths and 4 mths) are constantly ripping plants out of the garden and chewing them and completely destroying our backyard. Can you please help me stop this? Will vinegar stop them, or will that just kill the plants?

ANSWER Siberian Husky and Staffy X digging
Young dogs like to explore - and it takes one to start and the other will join. Did they use things like blood & bone in your garden? One rips things out they both play with it. Fun - and not what you want. Suggest create a digging spot - where they can dig, which is natural behaviour and keeps them entertained. Only use liquid fertilizer, and try and section off the area you do not want them to go, so your garden can be rebuild and your dogs unlearn their behaviour. Sorry no immediate solution, and with two of them it will be hard to stop them, unless you apply restrictions or a digging area.
