  • Hasn't ruined mine and had him for 8 years. But that could be because my husband takes care of the lawn properly.

  • yes, it leaves yellow spots of dry grass on your lawn after a while. i guess you're supposed to water it down after your dog pees so it doesn't happen, but it's so inconvenient to get the hose out after every single time your doggy goes... =\

  • You should wash it after, had a puppy that i was watching for a while and i would pick up poop and wash after they peed. What more important nice grass or being lazy?

  • Yes. Especially if the animal urinates in the same general area continuously.

  • Sure does, it ticks me off too because I DO NOT have a dog. The neighborhood I am in just lets their dogs run around during summer and they always poop and pee in my yard leaving nice little yellow spots everywhere in my front yard!

  • it can...it's because of the acidity in the dog's urine. If you go to your local pet store you can get a product to fix the problem. One type goes on your lawn, the other type is a vitamin-like tablet that you feed to your dog, alters the acidity in the urine
