Dog is wrecking the grass. Any ideas?

My labradoodle puppy is wrecking the grass in the back door. We are thinking of fencing off an area for her and keeping her off the grass and have a clean area for the kids to play. Thinking of slabbing or putting stones down in her bit. Does anyone have other suggestions or problems with stones and dogs etc.

Thanks for you help

Hi

If it is a lady labradoodle then the grass will always be wrecked where she widdles it only changes if they are spayed - don't know why - if you have space i would fence a space off for her & pave it - easy to clean also, stones/pebbles not so easy to clean:)

with all the bad weather it is just a muck pit. she does use the grass for her toliet but has been known to do it on pavement/road etc. I like the idea of stones as the stuff will seep away and be able to pick up other stuff but someone said stones are good for their paws.

yes it is a girl labradoodle and her pee discolours the grass just like you say. We do have room to fence off a bit but thought stones would be cheaper option than slabs:)

If it's a problem with the grass being discoloured because of wee, buy these things called Dog Rocks, you put them in the dogs water bowl and it apparantly neutralises the acidity of the wee and doesn;t affect the grass. They do work, but you need to replace them every few months.

With regards to stones - our dog and cat hate walking on gravel because it moves underfoot and is uncomfortable for them, grass is much nicer for them to walk on. Also, the dog (labrador) picks up, plays with and occasionally swallows stones, we have to throw about 10 stones a day back outside and find them in the funniest places - shoes, laundry, wood basket lol.
Also, picking up a dog-log (poop) from stones is much more difficullt than on grass. Trust me.

She'll probably grow out of it, ours always have. Another thing that is an absolute must have is a chuckit ball thrower - it launches tennis balls much further than you could nomally throw and means the dog will do 3x the running when retrieving it. One of the best thing I have bought for my dog and wish I'd known about them sooner.

I had artificial grass put down - cannot recommend it enough. Our two dogs had ruined the garden - now we have a continuously green and 'mown' lawn - no mowing/reseeding/mud in the house.

i think I have one of those tennis ball things it saves you picking up a slivery ball too. lol
She enjoys fetching it but then gets tired after a while and stops fetching and I have to go fetch it myself.:whistling:

Sounds quite a good idea might look into it. Not having to mow and no mud... great:)

btw - I don't work for an artificial grass company!
It's quite an expense to start with but after a while you'll be like me and blessing the day you got it. I got mine off e-bay but look for those with good feedback! We put ours down ourselves - also not as difficult as it sounds when you look at the instructions. Plus you can rinse it off for those hard to remove rather sticky eventualities....
