Picture of HOW TO KEEP DOGS From Peeing on Your Lawn and Flower Beds.

this will keep dogs from peeing on your flowers and grass


Step 1: You Need

Picture of You Need

you will need

4 table spoons of ceyanne pepper

4 cups of warm water

1/2 teaspoon of dawn dishwashing soap(using the soap is optional,you dont really need it)

and a 32 ounce spray bottle.

if you dont have that big of a bottle just use only 2 cups of water,and only 2 cups of ceyanne pepper.

                                              its 1 tablespoon of ceyanne for every cup of water.

Step 2: Derections

Picture of Derections

put the warm water,soap and ceyanne pepper in the spray bottle,and shake for about 30 sec. the soap is nontoxic and will make it stick to the leavs and blades of grass.

now spray were your dog normally goes and they will stay away for good. trust me it works.

i even use it to keep my small dogs from peeing on my fruniture. i just spray on the spot were they pee and they dont go ther for a long time.BUT REMEMBER you need to reaply every few days or so because if you sweep,vacume,mop, ect. it will wipe it away.

your grass and flowers will grow better now that your dogs will no longer pee on them.

ANY QUESTIONS,CONCERNS? just ask.                please leave a message.

re-aply to plants every other day.

2 cups of cayenne ???

This sounds like an excellent idea..i have always heard using Jalepenos works real well too.

II made it... I sprayed it and sprayed it... it doesn;t work. I knew when my own dog went over and sniffed where I had just sprayed earlier in the day it was a bust

I can't wait to try this. For some reason, the dog walkers in my neighborhood think that the hosta planted by my mailbox is a designated tinkle spot. My poor hosta has suffered enough.

This goes out to the illiterate comment FA-Q I knew exactly what she was talking about and you did too if you're that angry get off the computer and go to anger management. Can you figure out what FA-Q says Einstein?
I'd like to thank you very much for your information I'm keeping my dogs from peeing on my garden you're awesome

I was just wondering, does this work with cats too? My dog keeps peeing on my front patio and the cats keep going on my garden too.

I hope I haven't made any spelling mistakes :D thanks for sharing this article by the way.

I've tried everything. Nothing phases two dogs or the owner in my neighborhood. They keep coming back day after day. Tried the option mentioned here no affect on them. Tried the boundry spray no affect. Tried every commercial product available with zero affect. The owner has gotten 3 letters from the city and ignores them. Any ideas? Can't fence the area

Have you tried an ammonia mixture?? Not too strong or you won't be able to be around it.

If you put in floor a plastic (PET) bottle full of clean water, the dogs wil not pee near it. Its action radius is 3 or 4 meters.

Tim.Taylor (author)rimar20002015-08-21

Do you mean bury a bottle half way in the dirt so it is still visible?

Tim.Taylor (author)Tim.Taylor2015-08-22

Cool tnx!

rimar2000 (author)Tim.Taylor2015-08-22

No, Tim, simply leave the bottle on the grass or on the ground, or on the sidewalk.

cool idea

I can't imagine taking away the joy from Michaels that he gets from destroying my garden regularly

KimL4 (author)2015-04-21

Can't wait to try this but the pepper clogged my sprayer. I'm going to have to find a way around that.

I have two downstairs neighbors that allow their dogs to pee right in front of the stairs and in the driveway where I enter and exit the house. I've expressed my displeasure but they either don't care or don't know how to control their pets. Would this formula work to discourage the dogs from this behavior?

I have a stray cat that is pooping etc in our carport - please, will this work for me?

I know it says for dogs but I'm hoping - yes?

Marcel4899 (author)2014-08-01

how often should you re-aply the cayenne and water to your grass?

edahlgren (author)2014-04-29

How does this work?

the dogs don't like the smell of the cayane peper and will not pee there..... dogs always sniff the area there going to pee bore they do, and if they don't like the smell they will not pee there

rbatt1 (author)2014-03-07

Can you use mace or chili powder instead?

im sure you can, now remember you don't have to use dawn wont really harm the grass, but it moght on delicate flowers... so using soap is optional
