spot fix for dog pee burned lawn areas?

Is there anything to put onto spots in a nice lawn where the dog pees and leaves large brown burned spots? is it acidic meaning i would need to neutralize it somehow like with lime or what?

The reason that the lawn turns brown is due to the high level of nitrogen in the urine. It is the same things as if you put down a fert with too high a nitrogen level or overloaded on the amount applied. Watering the area dilutes the nitrogen. Unfortunatly, that is about the only thing that you can do.

There is something you can get from petsmart or similar place that you put in the pets water or food that dilutes (is the best word I can think of ) the urine making it less potent. I could see activated charcoal doing something but I think the gypsum idea is a loser, gypsum takes too long to work, the urine would naturally dissipate before any reaction from the gypsum.

on the back of my gypsum , i just picked up 2 palletas today they have a recipe , i believe its 8 OZ per stained area assuming a msall area, we have been having customers do that for years and it seems to do great, it ups the ph and neutralizes the soil back to a 6.5 - 7.5
