The best way to avoid dogs or non-target animals is to not set traps where these animals may frequent, any high traffic human areas, near residential areas, or wildlife management areas where hunters may visit.

If you have any doubt about the possibility existing that there may be non-target animals such as dogs, cats, etc, use bait that is not attractive to them such as, marshmallows, grape jelly, honey, fruit, corn, etc. Stay away from fish or meat. Coon are opportunistic feeders that will eat just about anything.
