Dog Urine on lawn
 
Am temporarily keeping our daughters dog which is a female. Naturally,
it urinates at random spots on the lawn, leaving brown circles. I've
been sprinkling lime on the spots hoping to counter the acid of the
urine. What advice do you experienced grass growers have for me?
Please don't say get rid of the dog. I've already thought of that.

Dilute the spot with a couple gallons of water. Urine is not
necessarily acidic.

Like Phisherman says, water is the answer. I've got two large dogs and any
brown spots they make go away just fine. The only problem is that the areas
can be too green later.

Why do we always get this type of postings from webtvers?

Would certainly hope your daughter is a female.

You should turn off the freaking TV, get off your lazy butt and take the
bitch for a walk at least twice a day.

If your daughter is the one urinating in the yard, potty training is way
overdue.

Who told you that urine is acidic?

Then you put the lime in the coconut and mix them both together. Drink them
up and then you'll feel better.

unless the dog has a bladder infection the urine will be acidic. I would say
partition the yard with those little jam in fences and teach her to go potty in the
smaller area. then water to wash it down, or, mulch that area for now. Ingrid

Great. Screw up someone else's lawn. Pass the ammo, please.

That way they will get the entire neighborhood ****ed off and they will be
forced to get rid of the incontinent bitch!!!

I like the plan. :-) But, why is there not a Hav-No-Heart trap for dogs?

I was working in someone's home for a week last summer. He has security
cameras set up inside and out. The outside is for his own entertainment.
This guy sits in front of the TV with a remote in his hand and watches
for people walking their dogs. If the dog gets on his grass, then he
hits the remote and the sprinkler system goes on. He thought it was
especially funny when the people got wet. Oh yeah, if it's after dark
the lights come on too.

I want to buy that guy a bottle of wine! :-)

Some of the dog criminals here tell me "Oh...the first six feet belongs to
the town, not you. That means we can let our dogs stop there". Pass the
ammo.

That guy gave me the willies! How many people just sit and watch their
security cameras all day? Weird, definitely weird. He did have a
beautiful lawn though. ; )

Such criticism coming from somebody with nothing better to do than critique
newsgroup messages.

Its the pot calling a pot a pot.

Would you rather the dude used a pellet gun instead?

It would be easier if he just used a motion detector!!!!

Well, he obsessiveness is spooky, but his goal was a pure and noble one: To
cause discomfort to dog criminals. :-)

I agree. I like the term, "dog criminals" too. My daughter lives next
door to people who have a pit bull who runs loose every morning. She
cleans it up out of her yard and throws it back in theirs. Been going on
for a long time.
