:shock: You have just reminded me we have some in the cupboard ( for at least 6 months :oops: ) yet to be used.
Think some say they work and others not. Plus I am not sure what affect,if any, they have on the dog. Supposedly nothing :?

We have used them for the past 3 months and not noticed any change to patches appearing on our lawn.

I thought I might try 'eezy Peezy' from CSJ as it is herbal and she has their food and treats anyway. Anyway else tried this?

Dogrocks haven't worked for either my male or female dogs - I have tried them on and off over the years and no good for us.

You have to put them in every water source they use or its a waste of time - I have three bowls in the garden alone and I cant use them when they drink lake water or that provided at training school

Sorry
Kathy

I agree that the problem with dog rocks is that Harvey drinks from too many other water sources i.e. the bird bath, the pond, any dirty puddle, a water bottle when out and about etc.

With a dog, the lawn has a chance to recover, once he is doing big boy wees.

My sister has two bitches and always has a watering can full and at the ready to dilute any wee on the grass. (Her lawn looks much better than mine.)

Whilst we are away for a week I have got some grass seed to go down over the patches in our grass. I hope that I am not just going to feed the birds! :roll:
