I love how customers want to blame yellow spots in their lawn on us when it's obviously a urine stain from a dog. I've been doing this a long time, we maintain hundreds of lawns a week, and install hundreds of lawns a year. I think I can ID a dog urine stain with a pretty fair amount of accuracy. But invariably, every year, we get a maintenance client or a client we just installed a new lawn for who gets a little yellow circle in their lawn. I'm sure you know the "circles" I'm referring to. And then we get a call, "There's this little yellow patch in our lawn..... I know it can't be our dog. We've always kept him off the lawn." Then I go to check it out and sure enough, it's a urine stain. But now I can't tell them it's their dog, because that would start an argument. They already told me it couldn't be their dog. So what I usually do is just tell them it could be another animal. If it's the front yard, it could be anyone who was walking their dog and the dog got away from them for a second. If it's the back yard, it could have been a big neighbor cat, a racoon (we have those around here and they wander our yards at night) or another animal. But it's just frustrating when I'm like 90% sure it was probably their dog but I can't really tell them that because they insist it wasn't. As if they were the ones who let the dog out every single time over the last 30 days. Or as if they were watching their dog every second when they let it out. I know who did it. It's just frustrating that I can't tell them. So I take the high road and explain that it's definitely a urine stain and if it didn't come from their pet it likely came from another close-by animal. At least this takes the heat off of us, because often they are thinking we spilled something. And I know that didn't happen. Anyone feel my pain, here? p.s. Way too busy this year with work. Sorry I'm never on Lawnsite anymore. Great year though! Hope all's well with you guys.
