NUISANCE DOG PROBLEMS
Nuisance dogs can cause damage to crops, livestock and property. Some regions of the United States have laws and agencies in place to help deal with such situations. Cut backs in budgeting as well as a surge in wild populations have let homeless dog populations reach all time highs. This trend is expected to continue. More common is the dog owner who allows their pet to defecate on a neighbors yard, dig where ever they want or destroy another’s property. It’s truly amazing how many pet owners will hook their dog to a leash and then walk them over to a neighbors grass and let the pet to do their thing! These same people won’t let their dog go in their own yard for fear of hurting the grass or because of the mess or smell. However, it’s OK to do it on someone else’s turf. A lot of time you can find these same people sneaking around after hours to walk their pet just to make sure no one is watching. Needless to say, this is simply rude and not acceptable behavior. Fortunately, there are ways to deal with this problem and this article will explain some those treatment options.
HOW TO STOP DOGS FROM MAKING A MESS IN THE YARD
You have two spray options to stop dogs from making a mess in your yard.
NEUTRALIZE THEIR SCENT
Dogs visiting your yard to urinate are doing so because of the scent left by other dogs. Same with defecating. Dogs being walked don’t count; this is on their owner. Dogs being walked can be routed away from your property but if their owner doesn’t care? You’ll need to deal with the pet owner to stop the behavior.
But rogue, wandering dog can be stopped. Well, its not that you’ll be stopping them as much as neutralizing their ability to find your yard.
By spraying our T.O.N. (TOTAL ODOR NEUTRALIZER) you can remove all the scent they might otherwise notice.
Remember, dogs urinate to mark territory. This scent is strong and no “cleaner” will remove it – not even bleach.
But our T.O.N. works by breaking down organic scent molecules. You’ll need 4 oz per gallon of water and will get 500 sq/ft of coverage per mixed gallon.
Our 8 oz jug will make 4 gallons and treat up to 2,000 sq/ft. If you have an area 10 feet by 10 feet you need to treat, mix up 1 oz in a 1/2 gallon of water and spray the entire 1/2 gallon out over the 100 sq/ft. Do the treatment in the evening and repeat the following night.
All areas should be treated twice, in the evening 1-2 hours before the sun sets, with a followup application the next day. After two treatments, the odor and scent will be gone for good.
BEST DOG REPELLENT SPRAY
If you would rather chase away the dogs, PEST AWAY SPRAY is a proven deterrent when applied to ground where they’re active. It’s concentrated, completely organic and when mixed with water, the odors it releases will make it unpleasant for dogs to visit.
Pest Away won’t harm wildlife or plants; its made with 100% natural ingredients.
But animals like dogs will feel uneasy and alarmed about the area/treated plants so they won’t want to visit where its been applied. This makes Pest Away a great way to naturally keep unleashed dogs out of the yard
Our 8 oz jar mixes 2 oz per gallon of water and will treat up to 500 sq/ft of grass/mulch/flower beds when spraying in the yard.
Treatments will last 3-4 weeks when using the liquid only.
For longer protection, first apply PEST RID GRANULES to the turf.
Pest Rid Granules are designed to “hold” in the scent and odor of Pest Away so the smell will last 2 months or longer.
Use 1 lb of Pest Rid for every 250 sq/ft of turf. Once applied spray over the top with Pest Away.
DOG WATER SPRAYING REPELLER
If the dog is still persistent after the use of Ropel you may want to take a more aggressive approach. We have a MOTION ACTIVATED WATER SPRAYER which is ideal for this application. It’s such a good product because you can use it safely knowing you won’t hurt your neighbors dog plus it really works. This device hooks up to your garden hose and has a stake which is pushed into the ground. Set it out in the area you want to protect. It has a zone or field of view which is adjustable up to 35 feet away. The “eye” has a field of view of over 45 degrees. Once you have it positioned to protect your yard the next time any nuisance dog comes into range the “eye” will see it, blast it with a high pressure 3 second shot of water and then reset itself in about 10 seconds. It is now ready to spray again! One or two experiences with this unit and most dogs stay away. It even has a pass through connection so that several can be hooked up in series. Excellent to use at property lines as well as gardens, fence rows, poles and automobiles. It will work 24 hours a day and runs off a 9 volt battery which will last for several months.
ULTRA SOUND DOG REPELLERS
If the dogs are persistent and continue to come around peeing and pooping in the yard, install SOUND REPELLERS to protect the area along with the granules. These devices have been around for many years and their technology has gotten better. By emitting sounds in a frequency range which dogs do not like, you can keep them out of certain areas of your yard. These units are a great addition to the repelling granules and since you can set them to operate discreeting, out of sight and with little maintenance, they’re an excellent tool for keeping unwanted dogs away.
So if you have a dog urinating or defecating on your property, start with the Ropel. The Motion Activated Water Sprayer is the next step up and if you are looking to cover a large area then you should consider combining the granules with a Yard Gard to get the best results possible.
PERSONAL PROTECTOR FROM STRAY DOGS
t, some DOG REPELLENT SPRAY may be needed. This Capsaicin based aerosol will disarm and confuse most any attacking dog. It has a range up to 10 feet and won’t permanently hurt the target animal. However, it will stop most any aggressive behavior and allow for you to move away from the immediate danger.
