View Full Version : Dogs and raw and killing the grass

Feeding your dog raw, do you have trouble with him yellowing the grass?

I think that happens raw or not.

Is there a natural solution to this?

My solution is that I let my 4 dogs have the back yard. I leave the grass really long, like I only cut it once a season, and it pretty much stays wild and green but there are still brown spots where they go all the time.
If you wanted to fix the brown spots I don't know what you could do but be careful to make sure it is nothing that would , of course, hurt the dogs.
I do have a small patio out there and plants in pots so I have a nice place to sit out with them and they know to go out in the back to do their business. It works for me. Good luck.

Oh, I wish I could just let it go, but this is a rented house and we will leave here in 2009 and I really don't want to leave it a mess for the next person.

Hmm... could you just keep the dogs off the lawn for a while before you are getting ready to move. Then clean up the yard well, rake any bald spots and reseed?

Keep water in a can and water the spots after they pee if you can catch them?

I would check out the grass repair kit that's listed on Petsmart's website...
They have a few other options, as well.

My dog's pee doesn't affect the grass, but I feed him "biologically appropriate raw food" (raw meat and bones and greens, no grains), so I don't know if that's a factor. I do know that the "fertilizer" he deposits makes the grass grow like crazy! There are big ol' tufts of grass all over my back yard.
