"I bought this after reading the earlier reviews as I have two dogs myself who are not getting any younger. Have not had to use it for this purpose yet, but it was great for cutting into the chalk for my decking foundations."

"This spade made digging up roots and rubble very easy. Chopped through roots nicely and made job a lot easier. It has a nice soft grip that prevents blisters so that is a plus too"
