    They sell that at the pet supply store I used to work at. It was one of our all time worst selling items. We couldn't give it away.

    Does it work? I have no idea.

    Is it safe for your dog? Not sure how safe it is, but I can guarantee it's worse for your dog than NOT giving it to him, since it must by nature alter his/her body chemistry in an abnormal way. I would also be concerned with any item that lowers urinary pH (assuming that's what it does) to an abnormal level as this can cause all manner of bladder and/or urinary problems.

    I'd recommend one of the following courses of action:

    - Accept the fact that you will never have the most beautiful lawn in the neighborhood.

    - Rip out the lawn and put in some kind of gravel.

    - Ensure your dog does his business in a designated spot, either by taking him there or training him to.

    My grass is the thickest and greenest where my dog urinates daily. I wonder why that is? She is a small dog and she uses about a 10x20 foot area where her leash reaches. So maybe it's a matter of a little is a good thing, too much in the exact same spot is not.

    That's exactly what it is. A little nitrogen is a good thing, too much burns the grass. About all you can really do is hose down the area she went in to dilute it a bit.
