Are you expecting a new puppy anytime soon? Maybe as a gift, a rescue puppy, or a companion you’ve been planning on getting. Congratulations! You are in for an energetic package of love and joy.
Those first few weeks with a new furry friend are filled with love and learning – both for your pet and for you as a new dog owner. Whether you have a brand-new puppy or a mature dog, there is a lot you need to know in order to grow a mutually beneficial relationship that will enrich all of your lives. From toilet training to food choices – and everything in between – it’s a lot to learn.
For Home Owners
If you’re also a homeowner, there may be some things you haven’t yet thought about. With all the focus on house training your new pet, you may fail to consider that a dog’s urine can wreak havoc outside the house as well. Many homeowners take great pride in the beauty of a lush, green lawn and may be surprised to learn that dog urine can damage their lawns.
Dog urine contains a high concentration of nitrogen as urea. Excess nitrogen is a problem for lawns because there are usually not enough micro-organisms in the soil to handle it. To make things worse, this excess can deteriorate the activity of the micro-organisms and compound the problem. Without some preventative steps you are likely to see some damage to your lawn, including sparse growth and dead urine spots that could take months to fix.

For a Beautiful Green Lawn
If you value a beautiful and healthy lawn, we suggest getting ahead of the game now. Our PetiGreen Program can help. It works to neutralize the damaging effects of urine by enhancing your soil’s biological activity. This allows it to digest and filter the nitrogen much more effectively. By digesting the nitrogen before it can burn the lawn, it helps control and prevent dog urine spots. PetiGreen works in hot or cold temperatures, so unless your ground is frozen, don’t worry about waiting until spring with your new puppy. Because we know that you love your dog even more than you love your lawn, we want you to know that PetiGreen is all natural and completely safe for your pets, your children, and your plants when used as directed.
