Can I ask about dogs on this thread? Neighbour's 2 dogs keep doing business in my back lawn not fenced. 



Can you talk to your neighbours?  If not there is always animal control.



Unfortunately the issue is lack of fencing he suggested fence but I don't want to fork out tens of thousands for a lot of fencing. Must be some natural chemicals i could use?

If the dogs are approachable and not aggressive id just go up to them and in a low voice tell it to go home, bad dog etc. They usually learn after a while if they get growled well enough, Little yappy things never seem to learn anything so you would be wasting your effort.

Thanks for the suggestions.

 

I will suggest the motion sensing sprinkler to her. I think it sounds like the best option.

Crushed mothballs were effective for use against cats from my experience

 

I got them from Mitre10, but you need to apply them quite frequently

My cat seems to be rather indifferent about him.

Looks like he wants to eat the cat alive
