Some people go out and pick flowers in the spring. I sit in the back yard and pick foxtails. They are so hard to find once they get on your dog, and you may not know there's even one on him until he has a bad infection from one. I'd rather pick them out of the grass than from between my dog's toes or out of his ears.
And mowing the grass isn't enough. Unless you rake it up, you are left with a bunch of dead foxtails that are even more likely to get stuck in your dog's coat.
