dog spots driving me crazy

I have two small dogs, have burn spots showing up where they use the yard. I have bought a bag of seed, pennmulch, gypsum and clean spot roughing up dirt then apply seed, gypsum, pennmulch and water. any other suggestions other than getting rid of dogs, my wife would have me leave first. Im keeping my head above water on this one but wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything. I am purely a novice at lawn care but trying

Get dogs on a schedule. Set irrigation to come on right after dogs come in. If you dilute the concentrated urea soon enough you won't get burn spots. Make a dog run with perforated artificial turf and water through daily.

If youor someone else is out there with the dogs,,, hosing down the urine when they go and/or sprinkling sugar or molasses in the area will also help... Cut back on you N applications in the area where they most often urinate will also help...
Another thing one can do as long as the hose is in hand would be to wash the poop into the soil so it doesn't have to be handled...

Forget it. I will say it again.

You can either have a good dog, or a good lawn. Not both simultaneously.
Fact. (unless it never leaves the house)
