The only normal people you know are the ones you don’t know very well
Solution: swap for a male dog.
Also, second the possibility of leatherjackets/crane flies.
Solution: douse with nematodes in the Autumn. Also, an autumn feed afterwards.
you should apply a nitrogen based lawn feed to the whole lawn; water in any pee with a hosepipe if you see if but not always possible
look into dog rocks - you add them to a water bowl - this helps for some people
give your lawn a regular now at a consistent height and make sure to water it regularly but not too much - every 3 days usually fine in summer
Never cut more than one third of the grass's total height in a single cut, water it first thing in the morning right after a cut, put an empty tuna can out while using a sprinkler, when it's full you're done - you soon get an idea of timings. Don't water every day a you want to promote deep root growth
also use good grass seed not supermarket stuff. A1 premiership pro is good stuff, but if lawn is shaded get a shady seed mix
my lawn is far from perfect and I spend very little time actually maintaining it but I get lot of questions off neighbours, friends etc about it, this was it when it wasn't even looking it's best as I have a lot of weed grass growing in it and haven't scarified it in 2 years, the stripes aren't even consistent 😂 so not my best work. Added a closeup, and a photo of what the grass was like when we moved in. Just aim for gradual improvement! There is a Facebook group called UK lawn care that will advise on specific products, techniques etc if you want to learn and get targeted advice

Owner.."Because I want a male dog so it's urine might not burn my lawn!
As bad as saying the cat has to go because I've redecorated and it doesn't match the sofa!
