The urine also contains potassium and salt which can have negative effects on your plants and grass, but the read deal is the nitrate in the dogs urine which is devastating to plant life. When dog's pee, especially large male dogs, the volume tends to be plenty, while of course smaller dogs will have less urine. Female dogs normally tend to pee in one location while male dogs will pee in several locations for territorial reasons.
