Dead grass

OK, I got a boy dog for many reasons...one of them being that I had heard that their urine doesn't kill the grass. Either MoJo is not a boy ( and he has a growth between his legs) or it is a myth! Could there be another reason why he is killing the grass?

Here is a picture of MoJo cooling off in the breeze!

I think the reason some say that boy's urine does not kill the grass is because many raise a leg and spray their urine in a more diffuse area than the female's squatting action.

Does that cute little boy of yours lift a leg? (I love the picture!!!) If you follow him with a bucket of water, it will dilute the urine. Can you teach him to go in an area without grass?

I think perhaps you were sold a bill of goods on that one...but what an absolutely adorable bill of goods he is!!!! My boys stain the grass, unless they lift against a tree. usually they just lift enough though to keep the stream off their feet...they are very dainty boys... The water works.

Both my dogs squat and both kill the grass! I think whoever told you that was dreaming!
There is a product they make however that you add to their water which is supposed to help that....also they make "grass saver" biscuits that is supposed to work the same. I could not answer you whether they work or not however--

Our male lab demolished our grass! Our solution ended up to be astroturf. On edit, maybe it's not astroturf. It's that fake grass that is really plastic-like but looks real. Nothing can hurt it. Here's Vinny sitting on it.

Well that's the first time I have heard that one LOL. But what do I know, I'm the crazy one that walks behind my boys with a milk jug of water to dilute the pee after they go..

You were told a big fat fib!!! My male squats and most certainly kills grass.

Mojo looks a lot like my Gryff.

Oh I agree. Or you could solve the problem the way I did at my old house - just install dirt instead. LOL

Well, it has not dawned on me, but Cicero does not kill the grass. He goes pee in the same area and we haven't had a problem with grass turning brown. I do put a tiny bit of apple cider vinegar in his water bowl each day because I've heard it will keep fleas away. I wonder if it helps with keeping grass also!!!!
