I have a problem with my garden. Weeds are growing every where, and I want to get ride off them. Does any one know what method is the best? I want to use weed killer but I have two dogs. I am afraid the weedkiller might be poisoning to my dogs. I know pulling the weed is the safest, but the method is very time consuming. Is there any safe weed killer or method that I can use which is safe to my dogs. Thanks.

I have used bleach water poured directly on the plant. This works quicker than vinegar. But truly the best solution is to just weed the garden if possible. Me...I just let my garden grow with flowers and weed faithfully till about the end of August, when I always "give out" so now my flower garden is full of weeds..:( Not my first priority, I guess :)

Are you talking about a garden with vegetables that you will be eating? If it is poison to your dogs, it shouldn't be going on anything that you will be eating. Vinegar works well, but it will kill other things too. I don't think it discriminates so it will kill not just your weeds, but everything it touches. If you want to kill everything in an area, vinegar and/or hot water is fine. Vinegar will also add things to the soil that may or may not be good for whatever it is you have growing there. The best thing is to pull the weeds entirely. If you spend time doing it right the first time, it is much easier to control later.

My s/o's mom uses white vinegar, it is not fast working, but it does work. I tried it on a few weeds just to check it out, and it does work, just slowly. Also, you could go to a garden center or home depot and ask there, they should be able to tell you what is safe to use around you dogs.
