Is your lawn scattered with holes surrounded by small piles of dirt? Is your span of green lawn interrupted by sporadic circles of yellow or dead grass caused by animal urine? While mowing the lawn or during gardening, do you find offerings of dog poo, even though you don't own a dog? If so, then unruly neighborhood dogs are most likely the culprits. Short of installing a fence around the perimeter of your landscape, there are a few things that you can do if you find dogs to be a nuisance. Here are some tips to discover what you can do to keep dogs at bay:
If you notice that you have a wild dog problem in your neighborhood, and that they run in packs, then call your local animal control office. Abandoned dogs can cause problems, since they forage for food anywhere they can. They may overturn garbage cans looking for food, attack your children while they play in the yard, or chase your cat up a tree. It is advisable to call animal control in such instances, rather than taking matters into your own hands and shooting at nuisance dogs.
