I do agree with Dove you need to address the dog boundary first.
As a child growing up we always had a dog and my father used to put it on a dog run which is just a wire running from one area to another staked at each end.
Littlemiki I have four dogs and I have built a fence with a gate so I can control when the dogs run around the garden the area where they have now is patio slabs in fact I have just washed the dog area down. My grass looked very similar to yours when we had six dogs but old age has claimed the other two. As money was tight I used for the first year or two a simple chicken wire and tree stakes for my boundary which could be removed in the summer so my dogs could run around, I even had a step so I could still get into the garden to work on it
