Default Neutralizing dog pee spots in yard



Advertise Here

Dogs hit the same spot every morning so now it's down to dirt.
So far I've blocked the spot off so they can't get to it. Loosened the soil and spread some new dirt and seed on the spot, then watered it in. Still no new grass
Any home made cures to try?

Some people have a zone just for the pets to use and they only go there. A local popular outfit sold a product for putting in dog water to help the dog urine not kill the grass.

Are they your dogs?

I am not a dog person - I'm a crazy cat lady. But it is my understanding once an animal gets it to mark a spot they will keep doing that.

Example, I added some new cats to my house, for a total of 6. I had several litter boxes. But one cat kept urinating near the door to the computer room, just inside the room. I cleaned it up and used Nature's Miracle, then I put a litter box there. Now they can urinate all they want - IN THE BOX. They love using that box and it is one of my most popular.

I doubt I could have gotten them to stop wetting the carpet otherwise.

It's called a water hose (aka garden hose)... hose the spot down when they pee.

Be glad they're not doing it in the house.

Judging by your post, I can see that your another one of those dog owners that let's your dog get away with murder with no repercussions! Probably a nuisance barker as well!Train your dog not to **** on the lawn, but where you want them to!

If you have a small yard, it's just part of being a dog owner. They pee, they dig, they lick their privates. The only other alternatives is to have a large yard, water down the pee spots or take them for a walk. If you just let them out in the back yard to do their business, they will.

Hey, those spots help keep the coyotes away.

[male dogs, teach them to use a wood stick in a section of the yard you don't care about]

I teach my dogs where to go when they're puppies. It takes about 3-4 days if the area is marked with exercise pen(s)/similar, and then usually no problem even if running loose in the yard unless sickness or injury. When the dog(s) are out, the door to the area is open. Otherwise, it's closed to keep other dogs out. If multiple dogs, I also set up a secondary area in case I have to "quarantine" a sick dog. The area doesn't get muddy if it's river rock topped with pea gravel, but it has to be kept picked up, and it's good to hose it down at least weekly. How deep the river rock and pea gravel needs to be depends on how well the soil perks, how large the area is, and how many dog(s) the area has to service. In some areas, a mound system, similar to a mound septic tank, will be needed to make this work. Before letting the dog(s) in the dog area, let whatever you're going to grow on the mound get well established. Google doggie outdoor litterbox...

Have a dog now that tries very hard not to pee or poo anyplace other than "her" area, which has been a minor problem when going to the vet/elsewhere and I know it's been long enough she needs to "go" Eventually, she gives in, and then I have to reassure her it's OK Much better than the alternative, though

I only know that vinegar neutralizes the ammonia that forms once pee is exposed to air. The ammonia might be what's killing your grass. Whether adding vinegar would make it any better I don't know. You'd have to hit the pee spot with a couple of hours of deposition.

Ultimately that ammonia breaks down to add nitrogen into the soil, so in the long run that pee is fertilizer.

We have 1.2 acres of grass around the house, another acre at the shooting range, and .5 acre at the barn. When we first got Normie, he was 6 months old and we walked him for the first 2 weeks so he knew he was supposed to pee and poop at the edge of the woods.

Then we got Chip at 1 yr old, and Norm taught him the ropes. Out here in the woods, dogs really do mark their boundaries with pee and poop. I've never seen either of my boys poop in the yard (Normie's girlfriend is a Golden with no manners and poops like an elephant - I almost have to use my front end loader to pick it up). The boys will occasionally pee on a bush in the yard, but it's mostly that Golden hussy, who I love dearly, who uses the yard when she comes to visit.
