Humane Nuisance Dog Pest Control
Stray dogs, wild dogs or dogs that are not kept in kennels or fenced in yards are a problem for many people. Unwanted nuisance dogs defecate on lawns, dig in gardens, frighten people and can be dangerous to children and household pets.
We never advocate the use of any device or method that causes undue pain or suffering to dogs. You will not find any kill traps, leg traps, poisons or baits used in dog control on this web site. As animal lovers, our goal is to help you safely and humanely rid your property of nuisance wildlife, stray dogs.
Dogs that chew on objects can be domestic pets (even your own!)
dogs. There are a few items that can be used to deter biting and chewing
of objects. Ropel is one of the best taste
deterrents on the market. This bitter tasting substance can be used on
most non-edible outdoor objects. Do not use Ropel Spray on edible crops
and do not use it indoors.
Live trapping is another very effective method
that is often necessary to rid your property of dangerous or nuisance stray dogs
or coyotes. A professional, humane live trap is needed for this job.
A 36 inch live animal trap can be
used to capture cats, small dogs or wild animals such as raccoons
and skunks. Two other traps are available for
dogs: A Bobcat Trap is the correct
size for capturing medium size dogs; a Large
Trap is the most used for medium and large dogs and coyotes. The Dog
Trap is used by professional trappers, airports, animal control agencies,
ranchers, farmers and also by individuals around their homes.
Once you have trapped the dog, consult with your local animal control authorities for information on what to do with the animal. Simply returning it to the wild helps no one and is also inhumane. An unfamiliar dog might be frightened and therefore dangerous to handle. You also cannot tell if the animal is rabid in most cases. Your local, county or state authorities will be familiar with laws, regulations and safety procedures on this subject.
