5 Easy Ways to Keep Your Dog Safe from Coyotes!



If you share my fear of walking your dogs at night, please take note of this important reminder. In recent days, there have been numerous reports of coyotes in our local area, so it is crucial that you pay close attention and take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of your beloved pets.

Coyotes are a common sight in many parts of the world, especially in rural areas. While they may seem harmless, coyotes can be a threat to your pets, especially dogs.



These predators can attack and even kill small dogs, leaving owners devastated. If you live in an area with coyotes, it's important to know how to protect your furry friend. In this blog post, we'll share some tips on how to scare coyotes and protect your furry friends.




  1. Keep Your Dog on a Leash

One of the easiest ways to protect your dog from coyotes is to keep them on a leash when you're outside. Coyotes are less likely to approach if your dog is on a leash and under your control. If you're walking your dog off-leash, keep a close eye on them and be ready to intervene if you see a coyote nearby.

  1. Install Fencing

Installing a fence around your property is another effective way to keep coyotes away from your pets. Make sure the fence is at least six feet tall and made of sturdy materials that coyotes can't easily climb or dig under. You can also consider installing an electric fence or adding coyote rollers to the top of the fence to prevent them from jumping over.

  1. Use Noisemakers

Coyotes are afraid of loud noises, so using noisemakers can be an effective deterrent. You can use anything from pots and pans to air horns to scare coyotes away. If you hear a coyote nearby, start making noise to let them know you're there. You can also consider installing motion-activated lights or sprinklers that turn on when a coyote is nearby.

  1. Use Repellents

There are several types of repellents available that can help keep coyotes away from your property. Some of the most common include motion-activated sprays, predator urine, and coyote decoys. You can also make your own repellent by mixing water and vinegar and spraying it around your property.

  1. Keep Your Property Clean

Coyotes are attracted to areas where they can find food, so keeping your property clean and free of garbage can help deter them. Make sure to secure your trash cans and compost bins and avoid leaving pet food or water outside. You should also remove fallen fruit and vegetables from your garden and clean up any spilled birdseed.

By following these tips, you can help keep your dog safe and enjoy the outdoors without worrying about coyotes. Remember to always be vigilant and keep a close eye on your dog when you're outside!
