Everything you need to know about dog repellents
What are the best deterrents for dogs? Chances are you’ve stray dogs wandering into your yard and would love to know the best repellent to keep them out. This article will share with you tips and techniques to stop these dogs from destroying your garden.
Dogs are gorgeous pets to keep. But having one destroy your garden and property is an awful experience. Dogs can eat from your garden, trample on your flowers and dig and uproot plants, vegetables, and your entire lawn. Their urine also releases nitrogen that kills gas and leaves unsightly burns or dead patches across your property. So, whether you are dealing with a lost dog, feral, or even your neighbor’s pet, they can cause severe damage to your property, making them a cause for concern.
This is why you must consider deterrent measures such as dog repellents to help you keep dogs out of your garden and lawn.
How do repellents work?
Dog repellents commonly work by producing an irritant that discourages dogs from visiting the area. These repellents may repel via their odor, taste, or touch. They take advantage of a dog’s natural aversion to certain substances in its natural environment. There are many different forms of repellents. However, here we want to focus on dog repellent sprays, otherwise called chemical repellents.
Are DIY repellents effective?
You may have heard of using substances like Cayenne pepper, citrus peels, ammonia, or vinegar to repel dogs from your property. However, these come with many downsides. Vinegar and ammonia may kill your lawn and vegetation. Ammonia and vinegar may also irritate their nose and cause damage to their throats and stomachs if they accidentally consume them. Citrus peels may deter dogs due to their odor. But they might also attract other unwanted visitors such as rodents.
This is why you should choose a professionally formulated repellent developed to get rid of the drawbacks of diverse natural ingredients to offer the best repellent protection against dogs.
