coyote protection for dogs
Must Haves
Motion Lights
Light up the night and scare off predators with motion-sensor lights that are pointed outside your fence line. That way, if a coyote does come around, the light will turn on before they get into your yard. The bright flash will hopefully scare of the coyote and have them turn back.

Fence Spikes
If you want to protect your pets in your yard, it's important to make sure it's coyote-proof. Your fencing should be at least 6-feet tall and buried in the ground at least 18 inches, as coyotes are diggers. At the top, you'll need to put something that will stop even the most athletic coyote like spikes or a PVC pipe that they can't grip onto.

Dog Whistle
Having something to scare off a coyote during a walk is a good idea as well. Bringing something along that makes a loud noise like a whistle will make you feel a little safer. Dog whistles, while quite to the human ear, will sound like a nuisance to these wild animals.

Coyote Rollers
Unlike barbed wire or spikes, a coyote rollers are a more humane way of keeping out coyotes. Essentially, it's a rolling steeling pole that animals cannot grip onto. They're also much more attractive and friendly-looking than barbed wire.

A Coyote Roller is a 4-foot aluminum pole that attaches to the top of a fence. When a coyote or another critter places their paw on the roller, it turns, stopping the coyote from getting a grip.
