Default Neighbor's dog pees thru fence.

Hello,

My next door neighbor's dog pees thru the chain link fence and it's killing my lawn.

What can I can do to stop it?

Is there something I can sprinkle by the fence to keep the dog away?

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks, Dan Sullivan

Give me a break, a little dog pee is not going to kill your lawn, are you
sure you are not just a hard nosed neighbor looking for an excuse to
complain?

Not at all.

I've seen the dog pee thru the fence and the grass dies where it peed.

There are dead patches all along the fence line.

And I'm asking here so if there's a remedy like spreading coffee grinds or
something like that I won't have to speak with my FRIEND about it at all.

Put some lime down on the effected grass. It won't stop the dog but it will
neutralize the acid.

Suicide bombers are killing people. Dog pee through the fence? I'm sorry, but
that isn't a blip on the scale of blips.

Nothing you apply will prevent the dog from peeing where he's peed before.
So your options are to either add a barrier to the fence to prevent the
urine from reaching your grass or to mitigate the uric acid in the urine
once it's already on your grass. The most effective way of doing that is
copiously watering your grass in that area to dilute the uric acid. A few
gallons once or twice a week and you should notice an improvement.

This newsgroup does not deal with suicide bombers, but it has a long
history of dealing with dog pee on lawns.

Not quite true.

We found that an electric fence wire placed where the dog liked to pee was VERY
effective after only one application (although I shuddered in sympathy).

Um, we have two dogs and our lawn is far more green and lush than any others
around here! I think something else could be your problem...

Yup, have used "electrical behavior modification therapy" on a dog that
came through to pee on the garbage can, clothes line posts and screen door.
It only takes once. I guarantee that dog won't even come to your side of
his property to pee after one zap.

This works, but please be aware of safety considerations. Use an
approved electric fence system: Never connect a bare wire to an outlet.
Place signs on the fence warning people about it. People can sue you:
dogs can't (although their owners can).

Electric fence systems can be purchased at most farm supply places like
Agway. The electric fence is current limited so that it won't harm
animals or humans getting in contact with it (other than the possibility
of damage from a tool you're holding when you touch the fence). The
smaller ones can be shorted out by weeds growing into the fence and
conducting away the voltage.

I have a dog in the back yard and the grass is not dead, why is the pee
killing weeks and grass? I wish my dog's pee killed weeds, it's a lot
cheaper than chemicals!

The beast must have great aim!!!

Next time you catch the mutt in the act, take a beebee gun and shoot him in
the balls.
He should get the message after maybe two or three or four times.
Most dogs really aren't all that bright so it may take some time for him to
figure it out.
Now if the dog learns to like being shot in the balls you might have another
problem to deal with.
