My dog is great at keeping squirrels away lol only one mango lost so far to them. Have not lost a single pickering. Sadly it was one of the CC the little bugger got. Biggest issue I have is wild parrots eating my mulberries. They zeroed in on my tree this year and only got a few hand fulls of fruit.

My poor pug would die of heat exhaustion outside or I would put him outside (not fenced yard) but with my luck he would just sit there and watch them while they raid the tree, he's very non confrontational  ::)

Sounds like your dog is doing a great job for you  :)

My little girl lives for the chase lol the squirrels use to get mad and bark at her from the fence, until she jumped up one day and almost got the squirrel atop the 6 ft fence lol I was proud and shocked and the squirrel just shocked lol

Out of 95+ mangoes from my Glenn tree this season, about 9 have been lost to squirrels or some other critter (rodents, lizards, who knows). There are about 3 mangoes left on the tree ripening. They have been tasty for weeks now, no more washed out flavor as the rains have lessened.
