Ok, readers. What’s the safest way to prevent dogs from peeing on those new trees in front of our houses? 

This is actually a really good question. I heard black pepper does the trick, but I never tried it. I obviously don’t want to hurt any dogs, but would love to know if anybody has a good tip. Also, are we supposed to put warning signs? Or would dogs not even know what they say? Chime in!
