|I thought I heard somewhere that cinnamon helps...or was that for ants?
It probably was. I dont know. Maybe get your dogs to pee there to 'mark the territory' better. I had a friend who considered buying some 'big cat' urine from the zoo to see if it would keep some really nasty cats in the area away. Sounds funny but the idea was to mark the territory. Never attempted it, and dont know if it would work anyhow.
Mothballs only work if theres enough of them and they stay there. Usually they are great for indoor spaces, or garages, sheds, closets. Its harder outside becuase the weather and wind may move them.
Some of the 'boundry' sprays at petsmart might work. Most of them are geared for dogs though, and I know a few that do work with dogs.
Here are a few things that I know may work better:
cayenne pepper - although not good if your dogs will get to it.
rubber snakes may scare them off
. Set up a motion sensor that squirts water in the area
citrus peals, plant plants that smell strongly of citris (or lavender may work)
spread coffee grounds in thier normal areas - good fertilizer and they dont like it.
