Marks on Lawn from Dog Urine

Marks on Lawn from Dog Urine

Does anyone know what to do when your female dog urinates and burns the lawn each and every time? We are giving her tomato juice with her food, which we were told would offset the acid in her urine.

Thanks,
Terry from Fall River, Nova Scotia

Best and easiest way is to dilute it by using a bucket of water or your hose. Training a dog to use an area made like a sand box for all "business" is worth the time it takes and easy to cleanup. (08/02/2007)

I have read that adding vinegar to your dog's water will neutralize the urine so it doesn't burn the grass. I forget the ratio of vinegar and water. Maybe someone has that information. (08/02/2007)

The idea that female dogs' urine is more damaging than that of males has been disproven. They probably paid some scientists big bucks for that research project. It's only because females tend to pool all the urine in one place whereas males tend to sprinkle more widely. If the urine is diluted sometime within up to eight hours, the effect of the urine is entirely healthy for the lawn, supplying nice nutrients. Let the female dogs be innocent! or at least only as guilty as the males. (08/02/2007)

Tomato juice, in and of itself is acidic. I would think that would make the problem worse. I agree with the sandbox method.

There are plants that thrive on acidic soil. Perhaps you could devote a lawn section to those plants and train her to go there (?) (09/17/2007)
