What are Dog Rocks®
About six weeks ago I published a post on the basics of Dog Rocks as we started to use them. I suggest you check that out if you missed it for more information. Dog Rocks are a completely natural product from Australia. The rocks filter out impurities from your dog’s drinking water such as tin, ammonia, and nitrates. Once these impurities are naturally removed from your dog’s urine, the yellow spots on the grass should not happen any more. You must use these special Australian rocks as regular rocks will not work.
How Dog Rocks® End Urine Spots On Your Lawn
We have been using the Dog Rocks for about six weeks now. They say you need to use them for several weeks before you will notice a difference in your lawn. We started just after the snow had melted, before the lawn had really greened up for the season, so there were a lot of patches left from winter pee.
This week, we do still have some patches, but a lot fewer than before. I will get into why we still have some urine burn spots a bit later in this post.
Our findings on Dog Rocks®
After reading all about Dog Rocks, and figuring out how to best use them in our lifestyle, it was apparent we are not the best family for success. We are active dogs, which means we travel for days at a time, we go to sports, we visit friends, and we have friends in our yard to play who might pee on our lawn. When we are not home, we are not drinking the water with the Dog Rocks. My sisters and I do drink a lot of water, so some days our bowls need to be refilled without the water having time to sit for hours before we drink it. The kitties have a drinking fountain which we enjoy sipping from now and then too. I probably drank the most water only from the bowls with the Dog Rocks.
When do Dog Rocks® work best
Even though we all drank water without Dog Rocks, especially my sisters, during this trial period, we have less lawn burn than normal. I think if a dog, or dogs are more stay at home dogs who are not traveling, or drinking water all around town, the Dog Rocks would be amazing! You would end urine spots on your lawn in four to six weeks. You can prepare water to take along when you travel if you like, but for us right now with three hounds, lots of sports, and Mom’s business, it was just too much.
We know so many families with dogs who are mostly at home, and we know they would love this product. Even though we all drank a fair amount of water elsewhere, there was a significant reduction in pee patches.

Dog Rocks could not be easier to use. The secret is to use them with all the water your dog drinks, and make sure the water sits on the rocks around ten hours before drinking. What do you think? Do you want to give them a try?
Brian Terry Frum says
Hmmmmm, if you use that how are you supposed to read your peeMail?
You have stealth pee mail, but you can read the pee mail from other dogs 😉
Interesting idea, I don’t think that work for us either though.
I think for stay at home dogs, which most seem to be around here, it would be great.
Sounds like a good idea and will try it – I mean my dogs will try it!!
Best to let the dogs try the Dog Rocks since they were made for dogs.
Jodi Stone says
I love the concept, but I can barely keep water in the water bowl for 10 minutes, never mind 10 hours! I would also worry about someone swallowing a rock because she thought it was food. I’m sure it’s great for people with small dogs who stay home a lot. it’s too bad it has to sit so long, I’m sure my neighbors would appreciate not having burn spots on their lawns.
Rock eating dogs couldn’t use the product, but none of us were interested in eating the rocks.
that could be the solution for us… our garden looks weird now LOL
You can enter to win since the giveaway is for Europe too! Yay!

Our yard has a couple of brown spots but I don’t know about having to let the rocks soak for 10 hours. Is that just the first time or every refill? I love the idea. ♥
Every refill. We still had a reduction in spots even though we couldn’t follow the rules all the time.
Cheryl Chervitz says
What a great idea. I have 3 dogs, and half of our yard gets brown ugly spots on it from their pee. I would love to give these a try.
Good luck to you! We know the brown patches well.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
Sounds like a really great idea, I have too many water dishes around the house and they drink way to much water for us to try this. It is something for me to keep in my mind to tell clients at work. Someone asked me this spring if there was something they could do for urine burning the grass.
If you have the right lifestyle they are perfect to keep the lawn nice.
Jan K says
This really sounds like a great product for homebodies like us! We don’t worry too much about what our lawn looks like though, but I know a lot of people do.
They would work perfectly for Luke, but if you don’t care about the lawn, there is no point in using them.
The Gang at LLB says
We could of used these on our Texas lawn for sure! Luckily we get LOTS of rain here in Northern Cali and haven’t had a problem with brown spots.
Jakey, Arty & Rosy
Lots of rain does help too.
Sandy Weinstein says
the girls have a large dog pen. however, most of the grass is gone at one end, their favorite place to pee and poop. i would love to get grass back again. i reseeded it a few years ago, but alas, it did not last very long.
If they have one area they use, then it is not so bad. It is when the whole yard is polka dots that it really looks nasty!
Lisa F. says
I have some bare patches that I’d like to see if this would help. It isn’t just dirt at those spots; it’s dead grass.
Those are the exact patches these Dog Rocks are made to get rid of.
