I have dogs and they pee and poo on my lawn.
 
What's they best way any of you landscapers have seen to combat the tendency of my 2 dogs to pee and poo on my nice little lawn out back and kill the grass?

The dogs have to go outside and use the bathroom, no getting around that. Anyone ever seen any creative ideas that homeowners have done to keep the dead grass to a confined area or anything along those lines?

Getting kind of tired of yellow spots everywhere

thank ya

An area with pea gravel is the best solution---easy to scoop up the mess,too.

It's easy enough to train a dog to use that area for their 'business' and only use the lawn for play---

Take 'em for a walk and let 'em P&P on your neighbors' lawns.

When I had dogs, I only took them out for the first part on a leash to a designated spot to go .... playing was different, but they have to go, they went out on a line to the front ditch ... nothing in the yard

heard a rumor tomato juice for them to neutralize the urine with the lawn burn...and a golf club for the NO.2 problem let the neighbors:mad: wonder were it coming from..yell fore:whistling2:...or get cats:huh:

Talking them on walks would help that problem. Dogs need to be walked anyways, and most owners don't.

Thanks for the asking this question. I have a big 80 lb. dog that probably is doing the same thing to my lawn. Luckily he does get out almost daily for a nice walk. For whomever suggested the golf club (biggles) for the poo...might have to work on that, my clubs are in my backyard shed. Definitely training the dog, from pup stage, would help in the future.

My big concern now is that with the warm winter here in Ohio this year, my dog has been destroying the lawn even then, by running about. Oh well.

Are you sure it isn't pee gravel, or is that what it's called after it's installed? I didn't take the time to train my dog to go and use one spot. My neighbors must think I'm depressed 'cause I'm always looking down as I walk around the yard.
