Can dogs scare mice away?
Dogs That Keep Mice Away.
When thinking about pets that chase mice and keep them under control, most people think about cats.
Cats can be good for controlling mice, but they're opportunistic predators that may or may not be mousers.
And, to top it off, many Dogs were bred specifically for pest control.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
