Is there a product I can purchase or make to spread on my lawn and garden to deter cats and dogs from using it to have a bowel movement?

There are some repellent sprays available for just this purpose, check for brand names such as Repel, Shake Away, or Liquid Fence (in no particular order) for example. Be sure to read the label for application and reapplication instructions. Also, cats will generally stay out of the garden once the plants grow and cover the bare ground. Dogs can sometimes be trained to leave the garden alone as well, perhaps with the help of a simple low fence that serves as a visual reminder.
