We are going to be getting a miniature schnauzer in about 1 month and I am trying to get our house ready. We have a small yard and are going to attempt to potty train him just to use one very small area of the yard. After reading how dog pee will yellow and possibly kill grass I am considering possibly covering the area with wood chips or some other similar type of covering and to try and train him to use this surface. Any comments or opinions would be appreciated.
Petsmart sells a product that protects your grass. Their are also pills you can give your dog as well that does something to their urine. I haven't used any of these products but have seen them in the store!
i have seen these types of pills in the stores and catalogs to give your dogs so their urine doesn't burn the grass. god only knows what kinf of chemicals are in it that you feedin to your dog. i wouldn't buy them personally. the wood chips are a good idea. or even a small area that is covered in larges stones or like driveway gravel would be good too.
