How do I stop my dog from getting in the litter box?
Some dogs take on the very bad habit of getting into cat litter boxes. Here are some ways to stop it:
- Ask your veterinarian for a special product you can mix with your cat’s food to impart a very foul and bitter taste to your cat’s feces.
- Put the litter box in a room or elevated area that is only accessible to your cat.
- Use a covered litter box.
- Purchase a “citronella collar” for your dog. This is a humane training device that you control. Citronella collars work by spraying your dog’s face with a non-irritating, but distasteful, spray. They are available at many pet stores or can be ordered by your veterinarian.
