Default Cure for dog urine smell outside?

Hi,
I have a small fenced in grassy area next to my home for my dog to roam
around in. Lately with the summer heat it has developed the sour smell of
urine.
Does anyone know of a simple treatment for this that is not harmful to my
dog?
Thanks

Nope, all the treatments I can think of involve ways of getting rid of the
incontinent beast.

Dilute the product by heavily watering the toilet area.

How about hosing the area down once a day?

Lime can be sprinkled over the area and watered in and will help, but
really, daily hosing is the only thing that works well for urine. I'm
assuming you are scooping the solids. Teaching your dog to go in one
particular spot instead of the entire area would also at least confine the
problem. You could gravel in in and then it would be feasable to use some
of the organic septic system treatments that digest waste to speed up the
process.

Go to any of ther major large pet suplly stores (Pet Smart, Pets Plus
etc etc) and they have a gallon container of stuff you can spray on
the area and the smell will go away without doing any harm to whats
growing there or the dog. It will take a heap of water to wash it
away even with baking soda etc, which is probably going to alter the
ph of the soil in the process. All those daily leaks the dog has been
taking has filtered down deep into the soil base and its gonna be a
lingering problem...........without the proper nutralizer sold (some
kind of enzyme from what I have read on it)

Not only that, be sure to take the dog with you when you do.

Only a twit doesn't take his dog for a walk every day.

I believe cover it with a layer of compost will help.

This is from my compost note:

Many gardeners with a high proportion of acid-rich materials to
compost mistakenly add lime to their pile to produce compost with a
balanced pH. Unfortunately, adding ground limestone will turn your
compost ecosystem into an ammonia factory, with nitrogen rapidly lost
as a noxious gas.

Regards,
Wong

A good watering followed by spreading a few pounds of sugar over the
surface followed by another watering.
The sugar will provide a large amount of carbohydrate to feed the soil
bacteria who will tie up the excess nitrogen in their bodies as they
multiply instead of outgassing all that ammonia and stink.
A 5lb bag spread over a 10'x20' area would be a good start, repeat in
a couple of days. Other sources of carbon such as sifted compost will
help keep the soil healthy and allow the soil bacteria to break down
the wastes. Don't let the soil go dry or bacterial action will slow
down.

Also useful when you bury the stinking animal.
