What smell do not like dogs?

Treacherous spies and valiant border guards, smugglers and customs officials, criminal elements and the dedicated officers… All those who by occupation have from time to time to evade search dogs or, Vice versa, to conduct the prosecution, will easily answer the question. Most of our readers in everyday life is hardly likely to bring down the bloodhounds off the trail, but know what a smell not like dogs, though not too much – for example, to protect against toothy pet furniture legs.

Natural smells

Pepper is the most powerful tool, and than it will be sharper, the better. But! It should be used with caution, especially when it comes to the impact on your puppy or dog hunting breed that has a delicate scent. Using ground Cayenne (red) pepper sprinkled around the perimeter of the flower bed, you can drive away stray dogs, pobedivshih to tag the dear Phlox and dahlias. Dose is very approximate, usually bag is enough for the front garden medium size.

The disadvantage of this means that burning dust gets into the nose not only to quadrupeds, but to the grower if he decides to cut or just to smell a flower. In addition, after each rain «security perimeter» have to refurbish. Although, if the visits applied the same Barboza, after one or two visits they will develop persistent negative reflex, and all interest in the flower bed will be lost.

Pungent seasoning can be used not only in powder but also cut whole pod. Pieces scattered in «forbidden» places (along those same flower beds or raised beds) or, in terms of the apartment, placed in gauze bags and put where unwanted canine visits. If the puppy is interested in the master of shoes, then it can be rubbed fresh hot pepper pod; a «tasting» as a rule, enough the dog started to walk around the «evil» shoes party.

Note: the puppy in the mixed dentition should be special items that he is allowed to chew, otherwise the occlusion will be incorrect. Besides the cub sooner or later will not stand the itching in the gums and pogruzit something, regardless of any odors.

Another way of using pepper – in the form of decoction. In a glass of water is taken one teaspoon of red (if not, then black) pepper and brought to the boil. To enhance the effect, you can add tobacco. Pros – the lack of burning dust, and if processed plants, a concomitant elimination of pests such as aphids, scale and other pests.

Shag It… judging by the movies and the books are all fugitives, knocking chase off the trail. And it’s not fiction. Grown tobacco-eyegouger (tobacco, been shaken out of the cigarettes, it will replace it), able to stop a specially trained animal, to the ordinary bulbs and scutes also works – will scare the suburban fence, for example. Tobacco is used in dry form or in extracts, pure or in a mixture with other components.

Citrus smell most dogs don’t like. Slices of lemon are laid out in raw form or RUB objects, protected from puppy teeth. The orange and especially tangerine are much weaker, and some Pets do consider them a delicacy. The citrus oil that you can buy at the pharmacy.

Hellebore is a tall plant with large leaves – not in vain called the «volchonok». It’s a little-known tool used mainly in the taiga inhabitants. Dogs not held, in the absence of the owners, an inventory of food supplies, enough to put at the entrance to the tent or in the backpacks several stems of hellebore. Caution: the plant is poisonous!

The smell of a big predator! The dog he didnít like. At home to apply this information difficult, though… perhaps in the near future to synthesize the scent of a bear or lion will not be too difficult. Considering that the scent of the animal at 60 to 100 times sharper than ours, of high concentrations is not required.

All the smells exuded chemicals, to dogs in one way or another don’t like. If walking a pet in the Park, you will notice that the whitewashed trees he carefully avoids. And to the old whitewash will not work, unless no choice. How effective repeller lime is unlikely to be useful, because living near the shelter dogs got used to it. Here chlorine is another matter, but its strong smell will not be to the liking of the people.

Calcium carbide (carbide welding). Smells in any state, but upon contact with water to provide a real «gas attack». Not poisonous, but leave it unattended, especially where there are children, is not recommended. The reaction may emit caustic and can harm the plants or spoil the flooring.

Perfumes, first sharp-smelling colognes. Air freshener, especially with citrus, probably will make your pet a hasty retreat from the room. However, if the owners make heavy use of perfume, then the dog will not pay attention to him (this is not to say that she likes the smell, just an animal she is used to it).

You should try several tools – one dog does not like the smell of deodorant and the other will be far to bypass subjects moistened with a liquid for rinsing the mouth. Like people, individual approach to the animals is justified.

Volatile organic compounds, VOC – all, without exception, and in any concentration. Most of them poisonous, and the dog instinctively senses danger. VOCS contain benzene, alcohol, toluene, solvents and cleaning agents, ethers, paint related products and many other liquids, gels and aerosols, both industrial and domestic.

Of the above is the easiest way to apply vinegar or alcohol – ethyl or isopropyl. Moisten cotton swabs and lay odorous surprises where required. The disadvantage – and the vinegar, and the alcohol evaporates quickly. But naphthalene, in contrast, has a persistent smell; mothballs scare off not only the mole, but someone bigger.

Industrial ultrasonic dog repeller

From aggressive of the pack is best, without delay, to flee. But one or two animals, you can stop, using pepper spray. Issued and other repellants dogs using smell, with evocative names «to Chew on?No!» «Antigadin», GettOFF my garden («get out of my garden!») and the like.

Absolutely no point in frightening the smell of it, which involved the training of dogs: the animal must be in a balanced state, to focus on executing commands. Olfactory stimuli are of the family dog is stronger than sonic and even visual, so in the process of learning and seats of the subjects with a pungent smell should be avoided. The same applies to the eternal dog smell «antipodes» – cats: they smell.

Negative dogs are referred to the smell of metal enclosures for the animals to do with as smaller amounts of the metal structures, especially junk iron roof. The dog doesn’t show his concern, but will experience persistent depression.

Note: unpleasant for the dog is able to become any smell (or their combination), which has developed a negative reflex. For example, if the animal was once kicked by a horse, on a walk the dog will pull the owner aside from not only stables, but also from horse manure.


Your pet perceives the world very subtly scents – and this knowledge will help set up the interaction with him: it is relatively easy to circumvent many of the problems of raising a puppy, and even after yourself to train your dog the basics of investigative work.
