Tips for Repelling Dogs

Dogs in your garden?

It's more than just mildly annoying to have dogs visit your garden. Even your own dog can become a nuisance when it messes in areas you would like to claim as off-limits. How frustrating it is to go outside and be unpleasantly surprised by what a dog has left behind, especially if you don't have a dog. And It's bad enough when your own dog decides to adopt your new plant or tree as it's favorite, but down-right maddening when a stray or a neighbor's dog adopts it too. Your tree won't stand a chance! Fortunately there is an environmentally safe and natural way to repel dogs without harming them.

Methods used to control dogs

repel dogsThere are various methods that people have used to control dogs. Some may work to varying degrees, but many are just not practical. One of the biggest annoyances people complain about are neighbors walking their dog on their property, without cleaning up after them, or just letting the dog roam the neighborhood to soil where ever it pleases.

Spray wandering dogs with a hose

One recommendation to get rid of dogs from your lawn and garden is to spray the offending dog with a water hose. While you may not mind spraying the dog, you may not want to spray your neighbor if they are walking the dog (well perhaps you might, but would refrain). In order for this method to be effective you would have to make sure that you caught the dog every single time it wandered onto your property. That's simply not possible.

Install a motion activated water sensor

Using a motion activated water sensor to repel dogs is similar to using a garden hose except you don't have to be standing guard whenever dogs wander by. While this method can work in isolated areas, it may be difficult to control dogs in larger areas unless an investment is made in multiple units.

Fool your neighbors

Some people like to put up signs that post a warning to keep off the grass because it was chemically treated. That may work while the signs are up and the offending dog's owner reads the signs. Effectiveness with this method is best achieved by keeping the signs up for a week, take them down for a week or two, and then put them up again. This is a tedious and time consuming tip for repelling dogs and is only effective under very particular circumstances. Unfortunately, dogs wandering out on their own, don't bother reading signs! Unfortunately, in too many circumstances, signs are useless at repelling dogs.

Install a fence

Fences can be very effective at keeping dogs out of your garden, but such protection doesn't come cheaply. Even if money isn't an object, fences are not always an option for aesthetic or practical reasons, plus there's always the issue of maintenance. Fences have to be examined on a regular basis and repaired or painted as needed.
