hi can anybody help me i have a female dog and she is scorching the grass has anybody any ideas to stop this happening

I don't have a dog but I think my neighbour buys special 'rocks' (presumably from a pet supplies store) to put in her female dog's water bowl.
She says they work.
You can buy various preparations from GC or pet shop,good idea to dilute it meanwhile.
Funnily enough our female dog has never been a problem, but our male dog, p's up against everything i plant killing large amounts of leaves.
Have u rectified the problem Andy?

I cook for my dog ( yes she is spoilt ), someone told me that tomatoes stop their wee scorching the grass, and it does seem to be helping, I just make sure most days she has one by add a tinned tom to her dinner or chop up a fresh
