    OK Here goes.....Dog Odors.....

    So OK we have three little Yorkies whom hate getting their feet wet and when it rains. Getting them to go potty on the grass is tough so they like to use the Landscaping area and the small river rocks as their potty area.

    My boys are on a constant patrol every couple days to "pick up" and such. We just have little grass for them but huge landscaping beds as mentioned above.

    Even with picking up and cleaning I still get a dose of odor occasionally in the pool area and its unsettling. I there anything that can be put down that is safe for grass and plants? I thought I overheard a Septic Line company say that when they have a line issue they use Nitrogen to remove the odor....LOL Not saying that's what I have going on here but I was wondering what/if any of you have this issue and what you recommend.

    I little disgusted, and a little embarrassed - Jim

    My carpet cleaner had an enzyme product that worked really well. He claimed it would clean totally disgusting carpets safely, digesting the waste products until they were totally gone. Safe for indoor use, I would think not harmful to plants but I don't know. I have no idea of the name. You might search for products like that. Sorry I can't help more.

    Flooding the affected area with water might help. I know that watering rocks sounds silly, though. I see you've got a sand filter - maybe you could use backwash water to hose down the rocks.

    Put a small gravel area away from the pool - put a small fence (portable if needed) between the pool area and the dogs so they have to use the new area.
