How to Get Dog Urine Smell Out of Lawn

Save

Let's face it, dogs need a place to pee just like every other creature on the planet. Without a specified place to urinate, such as pet potty pads or a designated spot on the lawn (Steer clear of fire hydrants, please!), damage to lawns is inevitable. The acidity of the urine can kill grass, and urine spots leave a pungent odor that can be embarrassing to homeowners. Here's a quick and easy solution to getting the urine smell out of your lawn.

Things You'll Need

  • Black light
  • Paper flags on toothpicks
  • Urine odor-neutralizing agent such as Clear the Air in granule form
  • Use a black light at night to find the urine spots that are causing the odor.

  • Place flags in urine spots so you can find them in the daylight the next day to complete the next step.

  • Apply urine odor-neutralizing granules to the spots. Only a capful of granules, at the most, is needed. When the dog needs to go out, take him to a different spot in the yard to give the granules a chance to take effect.

  • Remove the flags, and repeat as necessary once a week.

Tips & Warnings

  • It is better to use odor-neutralizing agents in granule form than liquid form, since the liquid form can leak harmful chemicals into the lawn and cause dead spots. If dead spots are already apparent, resodding the areas might be necessary. When you catch the dog urinating on the lawn, dilute the urine with water in order to cut down or even eliminate the odor. Many odor-neutralizing granules are made with all-natural ingredients and are typically not harmful to pets, but you should read the container to make sure. Odor-neutralizing agents can be found in pet stores like PetSmart. They are also available online and range from $10 to $30.
