Additional Information


How to Apply

We developed two repellents, a liquid and granular, to target specific types of Dog & Cat behavior. Choose the repellent that best suits your needs, or use both Granular and Spray for maximum protection.

General Application Tips

  • When it comes to dog and cat behavior, it is easier to prevent a habit than to break one. Use I Must Garden Dog & Cat Repellent to safely train your pets to avoid areas you consider off limits
  • Scoop the poop. When breaking habits of strays or neighbor’s pets, it’s best to remove fecal matter prior to applying repellent
  • Be Consistent. Established habits require heavier and more frequent applications. Apply as needed until desired level of control is achieved
  • Keep it up. Once the animals are staying away, less frequent applications at regular intervals are recommended to maintain control
  • Use the Dog & Cat Granular and Spray repellents together for ultimate control


– To Prevent Digging and Unwanted “Visits”

Keeping dogs and cats away from forbidden areas of your lawn and garden has never been easier. Simply sprinkle Granular Repellent on top of soil anywhere that is being targeted by dogs or cats. Please consider the following guidelines:

Protect areas from unwanted bathroom “visits”:

  • Long standing habits are harder to break so initial applications need to be frequent and heavy
  • Always remove fecal matter before applying repellent
  • Generously sprinkle granular repellent on top of soil at an initial application rate of 1lb/25 sq ft
  • Once habits are broken, reapply as needed to maintain avoidance – typically every 1-3 weeks
  • Maintenance application rate can go up to 1lb/100 sq ft, but rates will vary depending on weather conditions and animal population

Protect areas from digging

  • Long standing habits are harder to break so initial applications need to be frequent and heavy
  • Always remove fecal matter before applying repellent
  • Work granules into the top 2 inches of soil or mulch at an initial rate of 1lb/25 sq ft
  • Complete application by generously sprinkling repellent across the top of the chosen area
  • Once habits are broken, reapply as needed to maintain avoidance – typically every 1-3 weeks
  • Maintenance application rate can go up to 1lb/100 sq ft, but rates will vary depending on weather conditions and animal population.
  • Reapply after frequent or heavy rainfall.

Protect Trees

Dogs urinating on trees, particularly newly planted, young trees, can be quite damaging. with I Must Garden Dog & Cat Repellent you can stop dogs from urinating on trees. To keep dogs away from trees, you can use either our granular repellent, our spray repellent or a combination of both. Generously sprinkle at least three foot wide band of repellent all around the base of tree. Create a boundary around the tree you want to protect. As the dog approaches the tree, it will be repelled by the scent and go somewhere else. Initially, you may want to apply the repellent every 5-7 days and after heavy rains. After breaking the habit apply as needed to maintain control.

"Great service, quick shipping via Fed Ex, love the product, thank you I Must Garden. "
"So far, this product seems to work. No more "cat deposits" in my front yard! "

"Got here quickly. Works too! "

"Hi! This item arrived 4 days ago. So far the visiting cat has seemed to avoid front garden area. No strong repellent odor that I could notice. I like this product because it is made from various flora rather than wild animal urine. I've been concerned that repellent created from animal waste may involve abuses to the animals. This product is created with clove oil, mint oil, garlic, white pepper and other natural oils. Safe to use. Easy to apply. Container can be recycled as #2 plastic. This repellent will not harm pets or other animals. I recommend giving this product a try. This does stop dogs from digging. "
