    Dog pee spots

    My 7 year old German Shorthair has all of the sudden been creating pee spots in my lawn. They turn brown in 3-4 days and do not come back.

    I've tried several over the counter food supplements as well as sprinkling gypsum/lime on the spot and watering is in right away. Nothing has worked so far.

    Any ideas or tips?

    I don't believe there is anything you can do. Too much nitrogen in an already stressed out lawn because of the drought & heat. If you just fertilized, that probably make the problem worse. This always happened with our Golden early in the season before the lawn became established.

    Re: Dog pee spots

    I'm pretty sure it's the lack of water, not something new and interesting that your dog is doing. Once the weather gets back to normal for awhile and we get some rain, I'll bet the problem goes away.

    Re: Dog pee spots

    A couple things to reduce the amount of nitrogen: 1. More exercise for your dog - can be a sign that your dog isn't burning off the energy they are consuming, so to speak - common in hot weather. My dog is itching to go running, but it ain't gonna happen when its 105° 2. Better quality food - the cheaper food has poorer quality proteins that are less easily digested, and are more likely to come out in waste.

    I've always had luck watering it in. I coil up a black soaker hose over the area and soak it extremely well a couple of times. Seems to work for me.

    Counteract the dog pee spots with some dog poo.

    This makes sense as he gets very lethargic in warm weather. I just switched him from Hi protien food back to regular as well.

    Re: Dog pee spots

    it's the same thing that would happen if you put a pile of lawn feed in one spot. it is nitrogen burning the grass. with the drought, makes it worse.

    and don't feed your lawn now. wait until september 1st and hopefully by then we'll get some rains and start rejuvenation of the lawns......

    Here is the solution.... you can thank me later.

    Lawn Guard.... works like a champ. I use it with my lab and he was burning the hell out of the lawn before we started using it. Now, no spots, NONE. I buy the 540 tab bottle.

    Apparently a giant dog has been ******* on my whole lawn.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    When I took biology,.......... The better the protein absorption from the gut, the more nitrogen in the urine. The more exercise the more nitrogen mobilization and nitogen excretion in the urine. So do just the opposite of twisted's recommendation and water the **** out of the spot's where the dog pees.
