Q: Do Dogs Like Catnip?

Today I planted some catnip in my yard, thinking my cats would appreciate that. Then I was wondering if dogs would like it too? Do they?

Our dogs never liked it but my brother's cat has developed a fondness for regular grass. He supplemented the grass-less winter with the Chia Cat Grass & his cat loves that too. Please post a review of your catnip if it grows. I would be so afraid to grow it in my yard. It seems like a good way to catch neighborhood strays. I am very interested in hearing how the growing process goes for you.

I had catnip growing in the yard that all four dogs ignored. I would clip some every so often to give a neighbor with four cats. She'd dry it out in her oven and showed me a picture of all four cats sitting and staring at the oven door as the aroma filled the house.

My small dog, Lola, has gone completely crazy with it. Actually, I don't remember now if it was catnip or honey suckle but I think it was catnip. She ran around and attacked her toys and shredded a little basket. She's normally not very playful so this was a BIG surprise to me.

I would have to say most dogs aren't interested in catnip. I have had a dog and cats at the same time and the dog never bothered with the nip when I treated the cats.

However, each dog is its own personality, so, I would say it depends on your dog.
