|From the reading, it seems that it is female dogs who are more likely to cause the burn spots on the lawn since they concentrate their pee in one squat. One way to minimize that effect seems to be to water that area to dilute the urine within the first 8 hours? The tomato juice I guess is either supposed to make them drink more (diluting nitrogen concentration) or alter the pH of the urine (which isn't the cause for the grass burn apparently). The smaller the dog the less damage done since it is less urine (less nitrogen) as well. Some grasses are more affected than others.
On a side note, when I get a property with nice grass, I will be sure to follow her outside with a pitcher of water...haha
