I have seen bags of granules that you apply on the ground to repel animals.

Jay Hudson did some research on the product and reports:

The active ingredient is methyl nonyl ketone.
Their label

Some sites:






[regarding Jerry Baker's product line]: "...Rather than the mix of beer,
molasses, baby shampoo or molasses recommended on TV as an "all-season
green up tonic", his fertilizers 
contain the typical blends of nitrogen, phosphates and potash found at
every garden center....The company's top-selling item is Jerry Baker's
Dog and Cat Repellent - 'my unique formula', as his catalogue describes it.

Actually its methyl nonyl ketone, the same ingredient found in other dog
repellents...the only difference is price."
