We have spent the last two winters at a RV resort in Yuma. For some reason, last year we had more snowbirds then the year before whom RV with 2-3 dogs (mostly small ones) but walk them (or shall I say, the dogs walk them) with extension dog leashes; and they failed to keep them on a shorter leash. The park does have a lengthy dog walk, but this occurred on the way to the dog walk.
One lady walked three daschunds at the same time and she let them urinate on the front part of my site and my front tire covers 3-4 times. Finally, I politely confronted her about it, and she did not say anything in response, but if looks could kill, well, I would not be posting this now.
Anyways, to make a long story longer, a few similar isolated instances occurred with single dog owners.
I'm not the type to run to park mgmt. over every little thing, so halfway through last season I bought Repel II Dog Repellant granules and spread them generously over the front of my site.
Result: No Problemo!
Works great in small areas, like the front of my back-in site.
BTW, I like dogs, don't own any.
Repel II available at Wal-Marts or Petco.

I'm sorta new to this site but something on this thread really bugs me, well several things. I agree that sometimes dog owners get accustomed to things and may forget what their cute fluffy is doing bothers the crap out of people. No pun intended. But those of you that are using repellents etc (ammonia) etc to keep dogs away really should stop and think about what you are doing. If a dog or any wild or domesticated animal ingests something you put out and becomes sick or dies you can be held responsible. Here is the part you really should consider, it in many states it would be a FELONY animal cruelty. You really should consider your actions. Defending yourself from a felony at best may bankrupt you. At worst you will end up possibly serving some time. This sounds extreme but it's not. If someone is letting fluffy deface your property call the law and let them handle it. Notify the resort etc. but don't put your liberty and families livelihood In jeopardy! Ok back to your regularly scheduled program!

I"m not worried about being sued from fluffy's owner when I put out my dog repelent' But fluffy's owner should be worried if fluffy bites me'; my first call will be to an atorney because I"ll sue the pants off the owner.
Do I hate dogs? "no" Just fluffys owner that thinks their dog is perfeck and an do no wrong.

I agree if Fluffy bites you his owner will be in a world of trouble, and rightly should be held responsible. I am talking about the repellent you put out. If it kills the dog, or a wild animal, in most states today you will be in trouble. I am not talking about a civil problem from the dog's owner, I am talking about criminal charges you can face. I do know what I am talking about, I am a retired criminal prosecutor. I meant it as a precaution and something to think about. AZ is a state that has STIFF criminal fines and possible jail time for animal cruelty. You put out a chemical agent for what ever reason (even if the bottle says it's harmless) you are responsible for any damage caused by it. I don't even want to think about what happens if a child were to happen to ingest it.

Dog owner's really should take better care of where they let little precious roam, yap, poop, etc. Then this whole conversation would be pointless!

Oh and one last point, If a Federally Protected (Endangered Species) Animal were to come in contact with the repellent and die, If you are caught you will be in a world of trouble you can't even fathom. Just food for thought.

These repellants are just that, repellant. They smell bad. I can't imagine an animal or kid ingesting them. From what I've read, most repellants are actually made from natural, non-toxic ingredients that fade quickly, many times only lasting 1-2 weeks.

Animal repellants are used very commonly around home gardens (especially to ward of deer!!), and I've never heard of a problem with them. Almost any garden center carries them.
