    I am sure it has been discussed before but I didn't find a real good answer. What if any can I do for areas where a dog takes a leak and kills the grass? I guess what I am asking is can I prevent it?

    Thanks.

    First one in the morning is concentrated--deadly to grass. Keep a bag of seed handy. Throw some on every week.

    Yea I do keep the seed handy. At my house the only thing I have found to work is to follow him with a 20oz. cup of water. My wife won't do this so it still happens when I am out...

    I agree with that, My male is a 100lb lab and he is the only one out of the two that kills it!

    If you go on Google and search for it you will find that this has been studied at the university level. It is the high concentration of nitrogen that does the grass in. That is why watering the area after it happen works. If the dog is a squatter it is worse. Sidewinders aren't as bad. The pills may have some adverse effects and probably won't work. I don't have a dog but have been asked about this enough that I did some research on it.

    Our dog ate a small amount of of Escort herbicide once. She flat out killed the grass and other vegetation for a week. Thought that would be a novel way for spot applications if we could train her to go.
