Lawn Burn

Does anyone know of any good solutions for lawn burn spots? Are there any natural supplements for this? What do y'all use for your unsightly lawn burn spots?

They sell chewables that counteract the nitrogen in the pee, also a spray. One brand is Green-Um, and I know Dr.'s Foster and Smith have their own brand. I have no experience with either.

We are dealing with the same problem. DH has been doing a lot of research but so far without any real help for it. He did read anything given systemically to the dog can/has been know to cause health problems. I've been considering getting one of those pee rock things. They're scented and the dog goes to pee on them.

Jenn, do you fertilize your lawn?

My lawns go nuts and flourish wherever my girls urinate. I have to mow their elimination area much more often than the areas they cannot access.

I don't put extra fertilizer on the lawn. Their poopie areas grown very nice and thick and FAST. It's the pee areas that just started all of a sudden. The only difference is we switched Fergus to a high protein food and then he began having little burn spots everywhere. Yeah, I think I'll take Ryan's advice and just let him go wet wet after dark on the neighbors lawn..........completely dressed in black with a ski mask. hehehehe
Y'all will bail me out if I'm arrested right?

Hi -- My vet and I had this same discussion yesterday. She asked where I was training Snickers to go potty. I said the grass. She said "Why"? She then went on to explain that -- people walk on grass - sometimes barefoot. There are some things a dog CAN transmit to humans via feces. If a dog does become parasitically ill then the lawn would have to be bleached (Killed) in order to kill the infection.

Better if you can arrange a smallish area that has sand / dirt / bark for them to use. Much easier to clean up, easier to disinfect (should that become necessary), and no brown spots.

After that conversation I moved her training to a spot in the garden, she doesn't appear to mind at all.

Cheers!

PS -- I will allow her to do any potty on anyone else's lawn while we are on walks. I of course clean up after her.

Sorry Jenn, you're on your own! LOL If you carry a water bottle with you, you can dilute the urine on the lawn so it will not burn.

Yeah I could keep a water bottle on the back porch table since I go out with them when they potty anyway. I was just kidding about pottying on neighbors lawns, I would never do that......or would I? hehehehe. Thanks for all the advice so far, Im going to look into some supplements and other things.

We're having the same problem. We put down a small patch of sod under a tree and there are pee spots on it already. I've been watering it a lot to try to wash it away.
