Is there anything I can put down on our new sod to help keep it from burning? I have three dogs and I have brown spots all over from them urinating. Even their poop, which I pick up daily, is burning it. (I'm sure it doesn't help with one of them being a Great Dane who poops like a horse!)

Hi momtodogs,

Sure - Chase after them w/a pooper scooper, and wet down any urinated and pooped areas.

Now, if they're out there doing this 'stuff' when you're not around, just get after what you can. You see, what you don't see WILL hurt your grass.

You could try to train them to do their business on gravel or in a special section of the yard. Talk to a Vet or buy a book to see what the dogs 'like to do' their business on. Maybe a sand pit, maybe gravel, maybe crab grass.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

I don't know about the poop but I have read that giving a table spoon of tomato juice a day to the dog will keep the urine from from burning the lawn.
