How can I stop my dog from ruining my new lawn?

We get questions like this all the time: “How can I stop my dog ruining my new lawn?”

It’s a common question because we all have our beloved dog that we consider a part of the family. But what happens when their “business” ruins your lawn? The staff at Terra Bites Lawn Care knows that these tips will help any pooch-parent. Take a look: dog

There is some debate about girl dogs vs. boy dogs and one’s urine being worse than the other but there is no research of that being true.

The grass burns occur because the grass can not process all of urine at once. If you dilute the urine with water it will give the grass time to recover. However, we don’t have time or patience to wait for our own dogs to eliminate.

Pet urine that hurts grass is nitrogen. Because dogs, who are carnivores, eat high levels of protein, their bodies break it down and excrete it in their urine as nitrogen. While nitrogen is an essential component of healthy grass, too much of it may be lethal to your lawn.

How to Stop Yellow Spots in a Lawn from Dog Urine?

One solution to help stop dogs from leaving yellow spots in the yard is to use dog vitamins and supplements to change the composition of the dog’s urine. Be sure to check with your veterinarian before making any changes to your pet’s diet.
