Probably your best bet is to try to control the porcupines, not the dog.

 

There’s a section here on “porcupine control”

and here’s another one:

Interestingly, a few of the articles I read said most dogs DO NOT learn from getting quilled, it only makes them more curious, or aggressive towards porcupines (and then more likely to get quilled again and again while attacking).
