Why He Won't Stop Barking!
Earlier this year we had a squirrel in our attic. I was advised by a friend that if I spayed some Fox Urine (yes, they sell it) in the attic then the smell would scare off the rodents. I found some but also purchased a trap at the same time. I tried the trap first and it worked so I didn't have to spray fox urine in my attic. However...
I got the brainy idea the other day to spray it near my flowers & veggies to keep the squirrels out. They were digging and destroying my plants. After I sprayed it near the plants my wife let our dog, Oscar, out to pee about 3 minutes later. He went berserk - barking and sniffing around. It took me a second to realize he smelled the fox urine and was in "protection" mode. I thought it was kind of cool at first. Good boy, keeping the family safe, I thought.
Protection mode lasted for 3 hours!! He eventually tired himself out from barking while driving us nuts at the same time. I couldn't get mad at him, after all, it was because of me he was barking.
The crappy thing is... the smell will be around for a while. The good thing is... there aren't any squirrels digging!
I shot it on video, check it out.
