If you find yourself in a quandary with an unwanted dog that is making it his No. 1 priority to go No. 2 in your garden, then it may be time to set some boundaries. There are natural dog repellents that you can simply place around the perimeter of your property. There are several solutions to choose from that are inexpensive, safe for you and the dog and easy to use.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Cotton balls
- Chile pepper
- Cayenne pepper
- Shaker or bowl
Slice oranges and lemons and toss them into flower beds, gardens or around areas that you wish to keep the dog away from. The citrus scent, even though pleasing to humans, is not at all pleasing to the dog, and she will avoid areas where she smells the citrus scent.
Soak cotton balls in ammonia or vinegar if step 1 doesn't do the trick. Place the cotton balls around the perimeter of the garden or in the areas that you wish for the dog to avoid. Ammonia and vinegar are strong dog repellents.
Shake chile pepper or cayenne pepper in a shaker or a bowl. Shake the pepper powder around the area where you wish to repel the dog. This method is a popular choice, for the strong scent of the pepper repels dogs powerfully. Be careful to not use too much pepper. A little goes a long way.
