Hello Linda! Are you talking about outside or inside? It would be difficult to prevent dogs from urinating just anywhere unless you train them to go in one certain area (outside) and even then when a dog smells something he feels to has to mark as his own he will urinate. As far as in the house the dog has to be potty trained to always urinate outside and even then there can be an occasional accident. There really isn't any product that will keep a dog from urinating where you don't want them to unless you are willing to fully potty train the dog for inside and ALWAYS keep them on a leash outside and lead them to the area you want them to go outside and hope you can get there before they urinate.

Training your dog is the only long-term solution, OP.
I love my dog so much but it constantly did the things that irked me most. It would chew on things that it shouldn’t or jump up and down out of the blue. Whenever I put on the leash, it would pull on it. Whenever it was out of the house, it would continue digging on the ground - I wish I could tell what it was looking for down there. All the things it did left me feeling depressed as if I failed it monumentally.
But since I discovered Brain Training for Dogs and applied the system offered, it now behaves the way a beautiful dog I always expect of.
Gk is right that pet dogs need to be trained to do their business in a designated area and not anywhere else. This requires some time and diligence on the part of the owner to train them correctly.
Linda: maybe this will help
We had problems with dog urine devastating the green grassy turf. When the human leash training and otc urine ph supplement and other recommendations failed-We resorted to a remote training collar to train our dogs over the last 17+ years.
This collar is exactly the same principle as our existing invisible fence, but you can resort to a tone only button initiation to keep the dog away from an area you’re trying to protect. There are two different zap modes of nick and shock that you initiate and regulate by a intensity dial. Its the same type of collars hunting dogs use.
I do realize these Remote training collars are not for all people but if you using invisible type fence already- it’s likely a great option. My dogs were trained to pee and in mulched area and our grass has been great the last 17years. After training they don't need to wear the collar.
