Keeping Dogs or Other Animals Away

Dog Repellent


Whether you're somebody looking for a solution to keep stray and loose dogs off your property, or even just out of your garden (or children's sandbox), here are some cheap, and easy solutions.

Store-bought Repellents
  • Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler
    I'll highlight my favorite choice first. I love this thing, and with all the motion-sensor lights around, I'm amazed they didn't think of this sooner. A motion-sensing sprinkler! Now isn't that just the thing to keep unwanted pests out of your garden; pests of any species. (Except, perhaps, for ducks.)
  • Get Away Animal Repellent
    A spray to repel dogs, cats and other animals using a lemon-based scent.
  • De-Fence Dog and Cat Repellent
    Granules that can sprinkled around any area you want to keep the animals out of.
  • Portable Ultrasonic Dog Chaser
    Designed to be carried with you, the Dog Chaser emits a high frequency sound that will deter animals, but not harm them. Perfect for joggers, delivery personnel, and frequent walkers.
  • Critter Ridder
    I recommend this quite often when people ask how to keep cats and dogs out of their yard or garden. It's cheap, it's effective, and it's environmentally safe.
  • Shake-Away
    Shake-Away is a powdered repellent used by sprinkling around the area you want to protect.
  • CatStop Electronic Repellent
    A motion-sensing alarm that emits a high decibel, ultrasonic burst of sound to frighten animals away.
Fencing Options
  • Invisible Fences
    These will only work for your own dog, if you want to keep him out of certain areas of the yard, and your dog may be resistant to the deterring shock.
  • Easy-Up Lightweight Fence
    A cheap, but still attractive, alternative to traditional fences. The mesh is weather-resilient and tough enough to withstand curious paws and noses.
  • Tradional Fencing Options
