    I also have come up with the same solution as Lauren and Davidh. I can add that the first morning urine is the strongest and most damaging, but pouring water directly over the spot will dilute to nitrogen and can actually be good for the yard in low concentrations. I have also read about the pills that might help, but I have a tough time giving my pup some sort of additive that could have who knows what effects just so I have a pretty yard. It's not worth the risk.

    HRH killed grass when we had it. Now she kills sedum.
    I've tried the rinsing trick, but either I didn't douse it enough or she's just particularly pungent.

    I think the only way to keep a lawn pee and poo stain free is to train them to go in the yard area (if you have one). Although this can be more of a hassle to hose or wash down. I too now have a lawn full of dead patches where once was green and lush. Although admittedly the current climate is not helping the grass either at the moment we are currently at temps of 45oC and rising here in Dubai!!!

    Training them to go in one particular spot would be nice but Im not willing to work that hard. Our solution: remove the grass!

    I miss your sage advice around here, mister.

    @JeannieCO - Bea's pee is what ruins the grass - not Bo's. Funny!

    They tend to frequent the same spots -- which is part of the problem. I'd love to hear about a miracle cure too. I've tried many things -- the latest one is that "Grass seed for dog spots" from Scotts. Supposed to have a neutralizer in it, as well as, tough seed to regrow the grass. It worked pretty good in a few spots.

    We never had spots in our front yard from the boys being out and talking a pee but we do now!! That's interesting on the nitrogen being the culprit. there has to be something. I'm ok with torn up grass in the back (don't like it but...) but the front......

    I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. Our back yard is VERY, VERY, VERY heavily wooded, so the morning sun barely peeks through the trees until about 10:30 or 11:00. Thanks to that, our back yard (that wasn't in the woods.....maybe as far out as 15-20 feet from the house and a little more than the length of the house) was more dirt with a couple of patches of grass. After trying to get grass to grow for a couple of years, we finally have creek/river rock hauled in and spread it. So no crop circles for me. Ellie Mae can pee in the woods all she wants.
