Charley's pee is turning the grass yellow

Help! My grass has yellow circles of dead grass where Charley pees on it. Is this normal? I've never had this problem before and a) I'm wondering is something wrong with Charley's urine and b) how do I prevent this?

Does anyone else have this issue and what have you done about it?

hmmmm, not sure, we were actually worried about this as it seems MOST dogs pee does turn the grass brown... we have been blessed in that Tillie's doesn't!!
Hopefully someone can chime in and help you!

The pee is burning the grass. You can hose it off after and it will not be as bad,

I have actually wondered about this too. Piper's pee does not turn the grass yellow and she usually pees in the same area. Hmmm....

I think it happens with lots of dogs, but not sure why - maybe hormones or acidity??

My mom was convinced it was a "boy thing" because their male was a grass killer and their female was not and used this as a reason why I MUST get a girl. I'm not sure why this was such a huge issue for her when I don't have a yard! Anyhow, I got a boy and Brody isn't a grass killer.

Timmy is/was a grass killer, we had a polka dot lawn. I have since trained him to go on the edge of the pachysandra or in the mulch which eliminated most of the obvious spots. It drove my husband nuts, personally it didn't bother me at all and I was just happy to have him pee outside instead of inside. I picked my battles carefully.

going in the mulch is a good idea but I don't like him sniffing around in the flowers. I just wonder why it happens. Is it a bad health thing or is it normal?
