Laguna Niguel, CA - As their natural habitats shrink, coyotes have become bolder about venturing into populated areas. And as this happens, coyotes have become a very real threat to owners’ canine companions, especially if the dog happens to be a puppy or a smaller breed.
Here are some ways owners can protect their dogs from a coyote attack:One of the most effective deterrents is never leave the dog outside in a yard unsupervised. This is doubly so if fencing is inadequate or there is no fencing.
To keep coyotes out of yards, fencing should be at least six feet high and buried in the ground at least eighteen inches, as coyotes are very good diggers. Coyotes are very athletic. Something like a piece of slick PVC pipe at the top of the fence is needed to prevent them from scaling it. Or owners can purchase a commercial coyote roll.
Another suggestion is to purchase a coyote vest, specifically made for smaller dogs. They have a Kevlar neck collar which is studded with spikes, plus spikes going down the length of the back of the vest, making it very difficult for the coyote to bite.
