You can try using one of the enzyme-based odor eliminators found at pet stores on the dog run, you can dig a hole and bury the feces, or collect the waste and place it in a covered container on a daily basis. These steps will remove the odors at their sources. To further mask the odors, try using cedar shavings as a mulch around your landscape, plant strong smelling herbs and perennials such as lavender, peppermint, terragon and rosemary. Hope these suggestions are helpful.
