If your dog runs away, don't chase it. Lie down & pretend you're hurt.

How to catch a loose dog (Tip: don’t chase it!) If you chase your dog, its instinct is to run. If you lie down on the ground and act hurt (yelping, etc.), its instinct is to come check on you and make sure you’re alright. Feels like a dirty trick at the time, but it’s worth saving your dog from getting loose or hurt. What to do if a dog gets loose: Stop, drop and lie down - It might sound silly, but dogs find the behavior odd.

Yellow Lawn Urine Burns 101

CAUSES & TIPS (Reprinted from Drs. Foster & Smith) Identify the Culprit Before you start implementing changes to correct lawn burn, you need to make sure that your dog is actually the culprit. Several lawn diseases can look like lawn burn, causing small, characteristic brown patches. First, make sure that the brown spots are in areas where your dog urinates. Most dogs will have an area in the yard that they choose to use when they relieve themselves. Second, make sure that the grass in the brown spots is still firmly attached.
