then someone suggested kimchee. no good also. but a korean family bought the house next door, must have made them feel welcome...
I heard another tip from a farmer who wished to keep foxes away from his young ducklings.
He advised me to fight the fox (or, in your case, the dog) with their own weapon.
When a dog wants to keep other dogs off of its territory it "marks" its boundaries with urine.
You can save yourself (& your neighbors) embarrassment by filling a squeasy bottle with your urine and "marking" the edges of your grounds with it.
Avoid getting the urine on delicate plants or grass as it can kill or fade them.
