I don't know a foolproof way other than restricing access. My greyhounds all were/are egg fanatics and will eat eggs in any shape or form available.

i would think something like hot sauce or pepper or something that the dog will freak out about it if gets it in its mouth would do the trick? My cat... personally hated listerine strips ahahahaha. Plant some listerine strips on some eggs. They hate that they cant get the darn sticky thing out of their mouth ahahha

Same as with egg eating hens - poke a hole in an egg, blow it out and fill with mustard, hot sauce, dish soap or something else disgusting.  When the dogs bites down he maybe thinks twice about the next one.  Of course he might just smell then next one more carefully too. 

How does your dog have access to your eggs?

Cause i leave the gate open so the hens can go in and out. I can fix something at the open door so the hens can walk up and over, but the dog can not.
