Before I ask my question, I will share with you a Basset Story from last Christmas. By the weekend after Thanksgiving, I had the Christmas tree up, the presents wrapped and under it, house decorated, everything. We did not have Dottie at the time, just Flash. Flash never touched a present. A week before Christmas, we had a get-together with friends, in which Flash watched gifts being opened.

The following day, my fiance and I went out, and returned to find Flash had opened about 3/4s of the gifts under the tree. We are guessing he would have opened them ALL, but when we walked in he was snoozing in a bed of wrapping paper, guess he got tired! The living room looked like a bomb had gone off but we just stood there and laughed. He went for weeks not touching a present, but then he saw us opening gifts, and decided to do the same.

Now to my question. Have any of you used that spray stuff that is supposed to deter pets from going around certain things? I was thinking about trying it around the tree to deter the hounds from opening gifts when we are gone this year.

I guess what I am asking about is pet repelant kind of deal. Our house has a "open" layout, so its hard to block them out of the room with the tree. But we could invest in some sort of panels to put around the tree. It would just be nice if the repelant stuff actually worked...

It was all smooth sailing until Flash saw us opening presents that day, lol!
