    I had a guy calling me today asking me if I did sodding. I figured since I'm slow that I'd check it out to see if it is a service that I would like to offer.

    He said he has bermuda grass in his back yard and he doesnt know if some parts need to have sod put in or what. He said he has two great danes in his back yard and wants to know if there are any other grasses he could put in that would stand to the wear...

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    If the animals had an acre or so to run around in , less than 24/7, the soil was adequate there might might be a grass that could be 50% alive.
    Most likely though it would be like using sand to fill potholes in a barnyard. Dogs and plants don't fit well together in confined spaces.
    Unless you get an inspiration, walk away from that job. It will only make you look bad.
