Sorry HCF. I missed your reply for some reason.
I suspect a thread about dogs in gardens could run and run. My pair like to go chaising up into the far corner as fast as they can in case anything's lurking and then Rasta has a good dig about for rats and other rodents or hedgehogs which can be a pain when she makes a crater next to some treasured plant or heads for China in pursuit of a mole in the lawn.
Bonzo likes to inspect the pond by going ploof ploof through it and I've seen the perisher trying to emulate Rasta and dig for moles but, being a Labrador, he lacks her terrier technique and tenacity. Still leaves me with a bomb site though.
