Default What's happening to my grass!

I have attached some pics of my lawn this month and one from April (with the dog on).

The grass has been watered regularly and fed twice with Scotts lawn feed. I have to admit that it seems to have deteriorated since I applied the feed about 6 weeks ago.

any ideas on what i can do to salvage it? It has also been aerated twice.

any advice appreciated.

thanks

Dog pee is fertilizer also. It may be fertilizer burned in spots by the
combination. Watering heavily might help that. The dog alone can cause damage.

I fertilize lighter more often, rather than using full strength applications.

Urine has too much nitrogen to be placed in one spot. yyou may notice
that while the grass is burned in one spot where the dog peed, the area
around that spot is growing better and higher. If you can, dilute the
pee with water before it can do damage. Watch the dog when it pees and
dilute it with a garden hose ASAP..

Don't dilute the dog, just the spot where it peed. :-)

Just to add I thought it was the big trees causing the problems, not the dog!

Agree it looks like dog damage.

From the info it's not stated over what time the fertilizer was
applied or how much. Excessive nitrogen can promote disease
during hot, wet weather, so don't over do it.
Also, when were the two aerations done?
Aeration can be a good thing if it needs it, but when you do
it does cause damage to the lawn and will kill some grass.
I would never do it twice in a short time. Best time is Fall and
if you needed to do it again, I'd wait until Spring.

If this is dog damage Iím a Banana.

Please go to Pitch care.com and post where real professionals, people who do this for a living will help you. Everyone is just having a quick punt at it.

The clue here is the fact you have fertilised it.

Urine has too abundant nitrogen to be placed in one spot. yyou may notice that while the grass is austere in one atom area the dog peed, the area around that atom is growing bigger and higher. If you can, adulterate the pee with baptize afore it can do damage.
