What can I do to discourage feral, and not so feral, dogs

from
coming
into
my property both in daylight and at night, crapping here

and there
as
the

threatening noises
at
me?

Fence your property.

Not an option.


Motion sprinklers?

C'mon.


Well what's the deal? You're shooting down ideas without giving any

reasons.
Figure it out on your own then.


Thank you.

If someone has an idea involving a repellant substance, I would be

happy to
hear it.


Mark your territory the same way dogs do. Or, use something like old
cigar butts soaked in soapy water.


That's an interesting possibility. While I don't have a source of old cigar
butts, I do pee regularly. It never occured to me that dogs would regard a
human odor as a no-go territorial marker. Are you sure they would?

Thanks!!

Why indeed?

Try not to take it personally, some folks want a complicated solution when

Actually, I am after a simple solution and one involving as little
expenditure as possible. I mean to try at least two of the suggestions made
here.

understand from a friend who has one of the sprinklers, one of the
beauties of them is that they operate for only a few seconds so there is
no waste of water. My own observation regarding my feeble attempts to
keep the squirrel away from the apricots is that it only takes 2 or 3
seconds which certainly is not a waste of water; more than that is used
flushing the toilet once.


I have never seen motion sprinklers in this country, and am sure they are
not for sale anywhere here. It is a mistake to think that everything you can
buy in your local garden shop or Wal-Mart is available everywhere in the
world. No, I am not interested in the hassle of importing them; the custom
duty and plus UPS/FedEx/DHL charges would be prohibitive.

I like to think that I have enough judgement to know when "it is my loss"
and when it isn't, even with the disadvantage of being this close to the
question.

I'd use one for the squirrel except the movement of the tree branches
would likely keep it going all the time. Since that one doesn't come to
the ground, entering and leaving the yard via tree tops, one on the ground
would be useless. However, come winter when I prune the tree severely, I
may install one on the ground near the Evergreen Magnolia tree where more
nest; when they cannot jump from another tree into it and will get
sprinkled, perhaps it will discourage some of the critters anyway!
(Though it sure doesn't help now.)

Since there is a problem here with dogs coming onto the front side yard, I
may install one out there which would also keep stray cats from coming
over that fence at the back yard as well.

Take care.

Glenna, Stan explained that he lived in an area where a motion sprinkler

IIRC, the literature says they use about a cup of water per spray.
However, Stan can't use this solution. Given his location, water is
likely at a very high premium and simply not a viable solution. I
suggested cayenne powder or spray, a cheap and effective solution. A
google search may reveal other solutions.

In article ,
says...
If the dogs are not ferral yet running loose, animal control should be
able to fine the owners. Ferral dogs may be a health issue so animal
control should come out and catch them.

We've had a wolf hybrid running loose in our senior citizen mobile home
park for two or three years. Luckily she's not vicious, just unspayed,
unvaccinated,unleashed, and supposedly un-ownered.

Animal control hasn't been able to catch her even with repeated trys.

It'd be funny if we weren't paying taxes for that function.

solutions was one to spray a certain solution daily everywhere suspected

inside in the utility room or bathroom only (or actually being held). His
sister and he are important to me, their affection and un-intrusive
companionship being part of the my recovery from my son's death, so having
him put down was not an option. Giving him to someone else might result
in him being abandoned by his new owner as was a tomcat that I cared for

Please put it out of your mind. What our unfortunate exchange shows is only
the difficulty of communicating at a distance, through a written medium that

apology. I hope I don't owe you one, but only you can know.

Your news reading problem is easily solved. My ISP, like yours apparently,

Stan...I have worked at a garden center for the past 2 years and a product
called "Liquid Fence" seems to help most people with the problem of dogs,
cats, rabbits and deer. A bottle isn't very expensive...much less than a
motion sprinkler and definitly not as embarassing as getting cought peeing
in your back yard.I'm sure if you can't find this product in your local
garden store you can do a search for it on the web. Make sure you pick the
one for dogs and cats...it has a synthetic urine. Hope this
helps.....Melissa in Pa

Again, it isn't likely to be available in this country, importing it is not
feasible, and carrying it in by luggage on an airplane next time I return
from abroad is not recommended.

Thanks to everyone for efforts to be helpful; I think it's time to give up

I don't have "parking strips", whatever they may be, and I am not near a
sidewalk. But I understand you to be telling me to put out some
water-filled two-liter bottles along the property line, and to expect that
they will prevent the passage of dogs. Have I got it right? I do this when
the moon is full, right? I don't need any holly stakes or anything like
that?

How will the Candid Camera crew know when to come out and film this?

Thank you for your time.

I don't have "parking strips", whatever they may be, and I am not near a

water-filled two-liter bottles along the property line, and to expect that
they will prevent the passage of dogs. Have I got it right? I do this when
the moon is full, right? I don't need any holly stakes or anything like
that?


While it may be an old wives' tale, something like this is followed
in other parts of the world: in Hawaii, people sometimes put out large
glass bottles of water (gallon jugs or so) around their yard to
"discourage" dogs and cats from going to the bathroom there.
