We are going to (hopefully) be moving in the next month or two to a townhome. Right now, my dog goes potty in an area where it doesn’t matter if the grass turns brown over the pee spots. But the townhome HOA can charge us for damage to the grass caused by urine. So what do you do to prevent them from forming in your yard?

I’ve honestly never had any problems with pee spots! My dog has her own little designated potty area and it looks no different than the rest of our lawn. I guess I would just suggest taking him/her for walks to a park or place where it doesn’t matter. Or maybe just alternating the areas on your property where he/she goes. Maybe other bees will have better advice???

There’s a spray out there for potty training to certain areas of the yard. I bought ours at Wal-Mart. The brand is Out!

Our dog causes brown with the grass, and we just make an effort to force him to pee around in different places, so one area doesn’t get too concentrated. As far as fixing an already brown spot…….I’m not sure! Maybe a lawn growth thing or some green dye lol

All I know is I misread the title to saw “Pee Sports” and I was really confused!

I don’t worry about this, but I have heard from gardeners that if you’re concerned about yellowing then watering the spot that they use will help dilute the urine. This has always felt kind of extreme to me, but if it works it works!

Our dog’s pee also kills the grass! Unfortunately after 10 years of it I still don’t have a solution 🙁 it really drive me crazy. I think my FIL used some green spray paint when he was trying to sell his house after she’d been there LOL.

@T-Rex: I saw Pee Pots. LOL!
I don’t have a dog. I have no suggestions, sorry 🙁 But I’m curious to know the answer for when we get a dog one day!

They sell tablets at pets stores that are basically brewer’s yeast, that supposedly stop the spots.

LOL! Pee SpoRts and Pee Pots….sounds like a fun post! 🙂
Thanks for the tips…I will definitely try to get him to go in different places as much as possible, (our “yard” is rather small, though! hehe). There is an open field just across the road from us, so hopefully we can take him there to potty and play except in bad weather. I was thinking about having a bucket of water to pour on the spot after he goes to dilute things. LOL…picture me following around my dog with a bucket of water. Lovely image!
I will also look in to the tablets. I’ve heard of them before, but I wasn’t sure how, (or if) they work. I will definitely try them if the other stuff isn’t working. And if all else fails…I love the green spray paint suggestion!!!
