    I suspect there is nothing I can do. I'd rather not have my backyard become a PBS nature show.
    Either ban the dog from the yard of construct some kind of chickenwire enclosure.
    Anyone ever train their dog not to eat you koi?

    Our granddog (he's a Jack Russell and sweet as can be) loves to try to catch our fish. We just have to keep a close eye on him, but he doesn't live here so it's just a once in a while thing.

    What kind of dog do you have? Is he/she well trained in other areas? We've taught our dogs one command - LEAVE IT - that works for all kinds of situations. They know whatever it is, they better stop it, drop it, or walk away.

    I would build a fence to keep dog out..... I had to do that many years ago when puppies were small. All my dogs except the tiny Rio, have all been in my ponds at one time or another. It was just easier to fence off ponds and then I could relax...
    Now My fish eat dogs food, dogs eat people food... He he he

    We have a fence around our pond. We got it at Lowes, there are lots of options :)
