Dog Rocks Rock By Saving Your Lawn From Pet Pee Burns
They say the grass is always greener on the other side. Or, the grass is greener on your side, if you water it well.
But if you have dogs, and they pee on your lawn (as dogs do), odds are the grass isn’t greener anywhere, no matter what because your dog’s urine ‘burns’ the grass in patches. The best way to combat this problem is with Dog Rocks!

Why Does Dog Pee Burn My Lawn?
That’s a great question and one that many dog parents ask (and get really weird replies to). What is happening is really just a scientific process, and it starts within your dog. Your dog’s diet has a lot to do with it.
Dogs typically have naturally acidic urine because of their carnivorous eating habits. If your dog has a lot of grains in his diet, that could increase the pH level of his urine even more. The higher the pH level, the more likely your dog’s pee will burn the grass.
Additionally, dogs’ diets are typically high in protein. That’s a good thing, but what it also means is that your dog’s diet is most likely high in concentrated nitrogen. Nitrogen, in measured, consistent quantities, is actually beneficial as a fertilizer for your lawn. BUT…if too concentrated, then too much of a good thing is actually a bad thing.
When proteins are broken down in your dog’s body, the nitrogen concentration increases, and that extra concentration comes out in urine and urine-burn spots.
This is why many people still believe it’s only a female dog’s urine that ‘kills grass,’ while a male dog’s doesn’t. That’s not true. A female dog typically squats to pee, though, whereas a male dog tends to lift his leg and spray his urine. This spray actually helps to reduce the concentration of nitrogen-rich urine that hits your lawn, and means fewer burn opportunities. When a girl dog squats, she’s just saturating her spot, and this is why you see patches of burn.
What’s a Dog To Do?
So what can you do about lawn burn? Enter Dog Rocks! Dog Rocks are a 100% natural remedy to stopping dog urine from burning your grass. They’re paramagnetic igneous rocks from Australia and they filter out impurities like ammonia, nitrates and tin from water. If honest, they’re sort of like magic because when they’re immersed in water, they create a magnetic field in the water that helps detox the impurities from your dog’s water. Without dog rocks, these impurities are also passed through your dog’s urine and lead to the burn and yellow patches of grass on your lawn.
Dog Rocks are put into your dog’s water to drink and help absorb the burn factor in your dog’s urine as water passes through and is processed. Dog Rocks are tasteless, and won’t affect your dog’s drinking habits at all. They just remove impurities in your dog’s urine, and give your four-legged friend a cleaner source of water from which he’ll drink.
To use Dog Rocks, you simply place them in your dog’s water bowl. In about 8 to 10 hours, they’ll start to work, though you won’t really see much difference in the rock itself. What you WILL see is no burn patches on your lawn. With proper care and maintenance, the old burn spots should be gone in about five or so weeks.
Dog Rocks offer an all-natural solution to dog-urine burns for about two months, which means you don’t even have to think about anything but giving your dog cleaner water and growing a greener lawn!
Dog Rocks are truly an all-natural product and safe for other animals should they get into your dog’s water bowl. The rocks come right from the ground, and they’re packaged in all-natural, eco-friendly bags, and boxes. They’re only graded to be sized appropriately for dogs not to choke and you can feel good about only natural supplements being part of your pup’s water.
If you love your dog and you love your lawn (and who doesn’t?), there’s no need to despair over burnt lawn patches. Simply use Dog Rocks in your dog’s water on a consistent basis, and let the green grass grow!
