    Hello Margaret,

    If you could have watered the lawn every time the dog peed it would help greatly to dilute it.

    Otherwise take the dog out more often so it won't always be on your lawn!

    Use a Lawn restorer (Lawn Magic) or

    Maybe take up the lawn and install artificial lawn to end the problem!

    Hope that helps.

    What you need to do is neutralize and dilute the high acidity level of urine in the pee areas and the grass should come back. Do this by thoroughly watering each spot and let dry. Do this for several days. If you live in a wet climate this should resolve itself. Next, make sure you have a dedicated area in your yard as your dog's own bathroom so this doesn't repeat itself.

    Hello. I have trained my dog ( current and past) to pee in the mulch) over the past 19 years -so I may not be aware if all possible solutions but this product is fairly new, and I have not personally tried it. It may be worth investigating researching reviews and Q+As.

    my personal resolution ....


    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.
