I believe you just need to soak it in thoroughly (or apply it before a heavy rain and let the clouds do the work for you) to keep your dogs from getting a lot of it on their paws and skin.
Steve is correct. Although ingesting a little lime powder won't hurt your dog, watering it in would be safer. The pelletized products might be an even better bet: not dust, no tracking in the house.
Thank you both very much! I think the pelletized lime is what I got.
How often do you lime? I went out today and purchased and watered it down. How often should I do this? Does it hurt the dogs? Plants? or children?
