Animal Repellent

I Must Garden Dog & Cat Repellent

I Must Garden Dog & Cat Repellent is an environmentally safe, humane, and effective way to deter pets and stray animals from visiting protected areas of your lawn and garden. It contains natural ingredients and botanical oils that smell and taste bad to dogs and cats.

There are no poisons, harmful chemicals or toxic glues in our products. All I Must Garden repellents are safe to use around children and pets, and are completely biodegradable.


I Must Garden Liquid Dog & Cat Repellent is available in a ready-to-use spray that is versatile and potent. It can be used to prevent chewing, unwanted bathroom ‘visits’, or as a pet-safe training aid. Natural oils help the repellent adhere to a variety of surfaces and can be sprayed directly onto any area needing protection including:

  • Plants and flowers
  • Flower pots and beds
  • Trees
  • Areas of your lawn that are ‘off limits’
  • Furniture
  • Garbage cans

Apply a fine mist to the desired area every 1-3 weeks. The repellent works best when applied to dry surfaces. The liquid repellent can also be applied to a cloth and rubbed on surfaces like garbage cans and furniture.


I Must Garden Granular Dog & Cat Repellent is available in a convenient shaker jar that makes broadcasting the repellent quick and easy. Powerful granules contain our proprietary blend of botanical oils and will prevent dogs and cats from digging wherever repellent is applied including:

  • Flower pots
  • Planters
  • Trees
  • Flower beds/raised beds
  • Lawn/natural areas
  • Use a combination of granular and liquid Dog & Cat repellent for maximum protection

Initially apply granular repellents liberally and frequently to train desired behaviors. Work granules into the top 2 inches of soil or mulch at an initial rate of 1lb/25 sq ft. Remove fecal matter from the afflicted area prior to application. Once habits are broken, reapply as needed to maintain avoidance – typically every 1-3 weeks. Maintenance application rate can go up to 1lb/100 sq ft, but rates will vary depending on weather conditions and animal population. Reapply after frequent or heavy rainfall.
