Rock and Roll
Dog Rocks can ultimately eliminate some of the brown spots on green lawns that are caused by urinating dogs, according to the company. Placed in a dog’s water bowl, the rocks are said to help filter out some of the impurities found in the water, such as tin, ammonia and nitrates. Without such impurities, the dog’s urine might actually help fertilize the lawn, the company says.
