When dogs urinate, especially larger breeds, it will cause the lawn to turn brown from an excessive amount of ammonia present in the urine (ammonia is actually a fertilizer, but in high concentrations, will overdose the grass and kill it). Several remedies (although none are very practical) can be used.
Saturate the area with water that is commonly used as a bathroom by
the pet. Repair or replace the grass in the effected area. Perennial
Ryegrasses and Fescues are the most urine-resistant grasses. The worst
is Kentucky Bluegrass and Bermuda. Lastly, train your dog to go in another
area where there is an alternative ground cover not so easily effected
by the urine.
