blackspot on roses

Hello everyone ,I'm a novice gardener and I like my roses .this year I've had black spot  quite bad ,I've used rose clear but I've been cautious as my little dog like s to be out in the garden as well .does anyone know of a pet safe product or home made remedy that can help for next year as I've cut them all back now

    Hi Richard, from lots of passed discussions here its bad news,Bob t/g is at present trying to get rid of black spot on all his roses by grafting,iv thrown away most of mine except two which iv cut right back and moved to 2 buckets in solitary  for 2 months and im spraying one  with seaweed and one with NEEM oil,both safe and animal friendly, i can only wait to see the results which i shall put on here.It would seem most people are now buying new roses ie; David Austin which im told are spot free for maybe 8/10 years then buy new again or hopefully a cure is found by then or some of our friends on here might have better results in there gardens ,if so im sure they will tell us, seems its a waiting game at the moment.Good Luck
