As any dog owner knows, your garden and green spaces can take a lot of damage when you introduce your pet into the environment. Digging, chewing, running and going to the bathroom can do a number on your yard. You may notice your grass brown, yellows and dies from dogs urinating on it. The same problem can happen with your cedars. When your pooch lifts its leg on your trees, time after time, you will probably start to notice yellow, brown and black patches of dead branches.

Your dogs can also get in the pesky habit of chewing your branches. Urinating and excessive chewing can seriously damage your trees so keep a watchful eye on their health. Take preventative measures to keep your dog away from the trees. Dusting the base with hot pepper spice or setting up a mesh fence along the bottom can help deter your dog from causing trouble!
