How to dog proof and chipmunk proof a homes downspouts?
We have a German Shepherd Dog (Reagan), she loves to chase chipmunks in our yard. They typically will run along the edge of our foundation and at times have made their way up our downspouts. I tried putting a grate/metal screen over it to keep them from getting in, but often times that prevents not only the chipmunks but it prevents the leaves and debris from flowing out when we get rain and it clogs up, causing water to back up. Reagan has literally pulled the entire downspout off our two story home and often times she has left teeth holes in the downspout and mashed it almost closed at the ends. Any suggestions as to how to remedy this problem?
