How to Keep Dogs Out of your Yard

Keep Dogs Out of your Yard

Not everyone loves dogs. If you’re not a dog owner, you don’t have to deal with the unpleasant task of disposing dog waste. You must, however, find effective ways to keep them out of your yard. Here are a few ways of doing it.

Use Applied Dog Repellents

One of the most efficient ways to ward off dogs from your compound is to pour or sprinkle repellents on your lawn. The only problem with this method is that you’ll have to reapply the repellents every time it rains to keep the odors intact. However, you can buy a sprinkler system purposely intended the task. And, since there are many sprinklers on the market, you should buy one that allows you to use dog repellents without clogging the valves.  Visit The Smart Future to view a collection of innovative sprinkler systems that can come in handy when you have a big yard to spray with dog repellents.

Also, be sure to sample the smart sprinkler controls that allow you to use your sprinkler system from anywhere, even when on holiday.

Commercial Dog Repellents

Buying a sprinkling system is one thing but finding a good dog repellent is entirely different. Choose any dog repellent with the smell of citrus. It has to be in liquid form to allow you to dilute it and use with your sprinkler system. The only thing you need to make sure is that the odor can last for at least one month to avoid spraying very often. Remember, even as you try to keep dogs away from your compound, you don’t want to end up with an intolerable backyard.

Other than that, make sure that the repellent is safe for humans. If you don’t like the smell, you may choose one whose scent lasts only for a couple of hours.

The Bottom Line

Dogs can be irritating if they keep coming to your compound uninvited. They will litter your place with waste and pests. Start by asking the owner to restrain his/her dog. If he/she is not willing to comply, buying a dog repellent could very well be your best bet for driving the dogs away. In fact, you may only have to spray your yard a few times before the dogs keep off completely. Plus, dog repellents will help drive off other unwanted animals such as raccoons from your yard.
