I am looking for something to keep my two dogs from using our shrubs and new trees as a fire hydrant. I remember seeing tags on a tree several years ago but I can't find anything in the garden centre except liquid. Any suggestions?

I recently saw a system called an "invisible fence" which had small flags planted in the ground. The dog wears a small transceiver on it's collar that gives a small shock if the dog tries to cross the "fence". Apparently it works well.

Thanks Greg for the suggestion. I have heard about invisible fence and apparently it does work very well for keeping dogs within their own yard. I have almost 2 acres and am trying to keep them away from my newly planted trees and shrubs. I don't think the invisible fence is feasible for this.

I've heard of a product called the Scarecrow. scarecrowinfo.com Lee Valley Tools sells it. It is battery operated and when an animal comes in range, be it a dog, a cat, a raccoon or a child, it sprays water. It costs $80.00 and I'm going to use it to keep my neighbour's nice little kitties away from my bird feeders. Very simple premise, I'm surprised it wasn't invented sooner.
