It is also effective in attracting digging canines.

I once prepared a bed for sweet peas by digging a 3 foot (~ 1 meter) deep
trench, about 30 feet long. I placed blood meal and bone meal on the
bottom, backfilled, planted my sweet pea seeds and soaked the bed

Returning from work the next day, I found three very dirty dogs and a
completely-excavated trench. At least I knew my watering method was
adequate to reach all the way to the bottom.
