Do you have a dog that pees on your mailbox? Is your dog urinating on your mailbox in the middle of the night? If so, you are not alone. Mailbox pees happen for a variety of reasons. It could be due to a medical condition, anxiety, or just being a bad dog.
No matter the reason, you need to stop the mailbox peeing. You can try to cover the mailbox with something that will not allow the dog to mark it, such as a plastic or vinyl cover. You can also try a product like scat mats. Scat mats are a product that is made from natural materials that are placed in areas where dogs may mark. The mat covers the area and has the scent of coyote urine, which deters dogs from marking.
Some people have tried to put a small amount of apple cider vinegar in the mailbox. The vinegar is not harmful to humans or animals, but it has a strong smell that can help repel dogs from urinating on the mailbox. The smell of vinegar may not be enough to deter some dogs, so it is important to make sure the mailbox is covered and the scent is not there for them to smell.
The Mailbox Shield is a device that fits around the mailbox post to prevent dogs from urinating on it. The shield attaches to the post with four straps and provides a barrier that dogs can’t jump over. Made of durable polyester, the shield is available in several colors to match your mailbox.
Dogs pee on mailboxes for a variety of reasons. Some are territorial, others are marking their territory, and some may be attracted to the smell of the mail carrier’s hands. Some mailboxes are in high traffic areas and dogs may be attracted to the scent of the other dogs that have marked the mailbox. Dogs that have been spayed or neutered may have a lower chance of marking their territory. Dogs that are not neutered may have a higher chance of marking their territory. It is important to keep dogs on a leash while they are outside and to discourage them from going near mailboxes. Mailboxes should be up high so that dogs cannot reach them. Mailboxes should also be in shady areas and away from busy sidewalks.
