I'm fortunate to have the space for some short grass and a wild flower lawn. If I didn't have this space I think I would go for a wild flower lawn but with mown paths and features, this gives you the wild flowers for the wildlife but some interest in the paths and of course areas of short grass that you could train your dog to do it's 'stuff' on!!
I also have a dog and as a rescue he was never taught boundaries so all areas of the garden a 'free access' as far as he's concerned!! I have found that by mowing paths this does prevent 90% of 'tramplings' across areas you'd prefer not to have four paws pounding!!...
Just a thought and a way to get the best of both worlds and some good interest on your lawn?
