Protecting Lawn From Dog Urine

Is there a way to neutralize dog urine? My very large dog is killing the grass. I've heard putting apple cider vinegar in their drinking water will neutralize it, but he doesn't like the taste. Any suggestions?

Well, urine is a concentrated nitrogen blast to plants, just like burning with too much fertilizer. You can actually use urine (mixed 20 to 1) as fertilizer, though I doubt most will do it unless they just want to experiment, or the time comes when we can't get fertilizer. The problem is it's hard to tell where the dog went, until the lawn browns. If you could tell where it went, just blast spot with lots of water.

It's true, vinegar neutralizes ammonia which is the burning agent, but after the fact, it's not going to do you any good. The best thing is to watch where pup went and flush spot with water. Or train her to go in one area, and by flushing with water daily, you increase the odds of grass living. (02/02/2010)
