After many years of having dogs and contending with the yellow spots in the yard I came up with this idea to make it a little nicer to look at. I first timbered off an area off the back
porch. Filled it with mulch and put in concrete pavers for the walkway. Then started planting shrubs and flowers inside the timbers and around the border of it. Made sure they were far enough away from the dogs MAIN area of use. Also put in a concrete fire hydrant for the male dog! Works great, no yellow spots. In the fall we also mulch leaves to put on top then wood mulch on that. Someone told me they decay of leaves helps to keep the smell down, it does work. Also I use the bed for starting shrub cuttings. Everything thrives in the soil. Maybe this will help others with the yellow spot problem. Have not put a roof on the back porch yet, thus the umbrella for the dogs.

give your dogs a TBSP of tomato paste or a tomato slice daily & you won't get the yellow spots..
Do you feel anxious in a yellow room? Does the color blue make you feel calm and relaxed? Color theorists have long understood how color can dramatically affect moods, feelings and
emotions. Interesting therapy studies have shown that:
Red was used to stimulate the body and mind and to increase circulation, Yellow was thought to stimulate the nerves and purify the body, Orange was used to heal the lungs and to increase energy levels. Blue was believed to soothe illnesses and treat pain. Indigo shades were thought to alleviate skin problems.
