Protecting redwood decking

I've just finished building a redwood bench outside my house. Since it's redwood, I don't have to varnish/paint it to prevent it from rotting.

However I'd like to know if there's anything I should do to protect it. Are there any oils I should use? What do people usually put on redwood decks?

I'm mainly worried about dogs peeing on it, and people throwing trash/drinks on it.

You can Google lots of websites for care and maintenace of redwood. You can train pets, but not guests. You can eliminate guests.

To maintain redwood finish requires cleaning and sealing. There are many websites that discuss these redwood issues.
