14. Mulch

Many gardeners use mulch to keep weeds under control. But you might want to think twice about your annual mulch delivery if you’ve added a furry friend to your family. Gardening Know How explains many dogs like to chew on and even eat mulch. But that can be pretty dangerous. Cocoa mulch, specifically, contains an ingredient called theobromine. The compound smells great to your dog but is toxic to him. Other types of mulch, such as those made from pine, cedar, and hemlock, are less toxic to dogs. But they still pose a choking hazard. Dogs can also have an allergic reaction to mulch. So you should always supervise your dog carefully.
