My back garden was like a bowling green "pre-Judy" and I looked into things like this endlessly!

My sister-in-law has used lava rocks and said they are fine but in the end I decided anything that has the potential to change chemical balance of a dogs pee has the potential to cause upsets so i left it.
I'm now more than used to my moon crater lawn (it's only small!!) and I'd sooner have a happy healthy hound than my manicured handkerchief patch of grass anyway

I was also looking at them as having 3 dogs I actually have not much of green grass in the garden but I decided it can't be healthy in a long term use. I prefer healthy happy dogs than nice garden

Has anyone else used WEE PATCH RESTORE from Ebay, have ordered quite a few from this guy now with excellent results. Completely harmless to pets and children according to the blurb and works a treat

Do they work?
Possibly, if you are lucky. How much urine burns the grass depends to such a great extent on the bitch. Some are worse than others. Of course, as you could guess, my really bad one was Big Bad Beth. (EVERYTHING was always BBB's fault!) And I think the only thing which would have improved my lawn with her around would have been a little piece of lead clipped to the left ear, preferably fired out of a 12 bore shotgun!

One thing which I've found to help is to watch where they go then poor (non greasy) washing up water on it. The washing up liquid seems to help neutralise the urine. It's not perfect but it does help. I used to keep a watering can outside the kitchen door to pour the washing up water in ready for use when needed. But these days both Amy and Chloe are not bad so I no longer bother.

Regards, John

Funnily enough, I've got 3 bitches that pee like clockwork in the same place and the grass is fine.

It's like I said Nicola, some do, some don't.

Well I've been lucky. There's been 5 different bitches peeing in the same bits of grass. I think it probably depends on the type if grass. My "lawn" was a cow field, mown to within an inch if it's life and now looks like lawn. Probably not as fine as your typical British lawn.

Sorry don't have any advice about that. Hope you find some good information with the help of the other.
