What can I use to kill weeds that is not poisonous to my dogs? I am afraid if I use commercial weed killers they might lick their paws and ingest some. Thanks.

Vinegar, very effective weed killer. (06/09/2010)
OR boiling water straight off the burner. (06/09/2010)
Vinegar. Another way is to cut the plant weed just before it flowers to make seed. It may grow some but does not have time to mature before season ends, therefore it dies naturally. Roundup is out of the question. It kills your frogs. It causes genetic defects. Read up on Monsanto and the evils in GMOs and what they are doing to the world. It'll knock your socks off. Read about how ground is poisoned for like growing strawberries. Read about fruits being raised with antifreeze. Anyway, vinegar is good. (06/12/2010)
Vinegar, that is what I have used for years. In tender areas, you can mix it with water in a sprayer and do a couple applications. You can take it in a squeeze bottle (to manage easier) and gently squeeze on to the area. The boiling water is ok if you are careful not to get burned, and you then have to run back and forth to the house to keep pots boiling as you do your yard, which makes it not as easy. (06/12/2010)
