The Q&A Archives: Dogs & Cats

Question: Is there any product that will keep animals such as cats and dogs away from the garden without harming them?

Answer: Some gardeners report success using homemade garlic and/or pepper spray or commercial animal repellent sprays in the garden. (These are applied and reapplied to the garden not sprayed at the animals.) For instance, Burpee (1-800-487-5530) carries the GetAway line. Another tactic is to speak to the owners, since in many areas there are now leash laws for both dogs and cats.
