My neighbor thinks its OK to let the dog pee in my yard. He cleans up his poop, but I want his dog to go some place else. Are there any products or treatments?

First off, stop allowing the dog to do his business in your yard. It's nice that the neighbor cleans it up, but you can't expect the dog to understand what he can and can't do in your yard. Very politely ask your neighbor to take the dog somewhere else. Then, get an ultrasonic trainer, and use it every time you see the dog in your yard. It emits an ultrasonic sound that only the dog can hear. They don't like that sound. It's akin to fingernails on a chalkboard. Eventually the dog will associate going in your yard with an unpleasant experience and he will stop going in your yard. The absolute best one is from Invisible Fence. Good luck. :-)
Why should you have to repair your yard damage because of a neighbors pet? If you do not have a dog and/or there is a leash/restraint law in your area I say tell your neighbor to keep his dog in his own yard or you will have to report him to the proper authorities for not having his dog tethered because you're tired of damage to your property! Phooey about political correctness and niceness with your neighbor because he's not being considerate and doing the right nice thing to you!
As for the current yellow spots, what I would do is metal rake the dead spots and re-seed.
Does anyone know what to do about the yellow spots on the lawn from female dogs urinating. Someone said to use brewers yeast. Does anyone know about this?
