Dogs are perfect pets, great companions and playmates fun. But leave bad odors, especially when they urinate in your garden. The urine of dogs ruin the lawn and other garden plants, smells awful and encourages other dogs to do their business there also. The good news is there are many simple ways, cheaper and more effective to keep the dogs away from your garden.
Homemade repellent for dogs urine
Locate the most frequent sites of dogs in your garden, especially places where wet. Sprinkle pepper or chili powder in those places, since dust irritates your nose and discourages dogs go to that place to urinate.
Soak a few cotton balls in ammonia, isopropyl alcohol or vinegar and then throw them in areas you do not want to be dogs. The smell of these products is even stronger for a dog than it is for a human being, and also unpleasant. Never pour these liquids directly on the ground since any of them could harm plants.
Gather your old citrus peels (oranges, lemons , limes and grapefruit) and scatter them on the ground in areas where you do not want to approach dogs. Dogs do not like the smell of citrus.
Mix equal parts vinegar and lemon juice into a bottle spray and apply the solution in any area where you want to repel dogs. Remember to reapply frequently spray for maximum effectiveness.
Add several drops of essential oil to a dog repellent bottle water spray, then spritz any area you want to avoid dogs. Examples of essential oils that do not like dogs include eucalyptus, cinnamon and sour apple.
