They do work, but don't expect perfection
on 26 March 2018
I have been regularly using Dog Rocks for several years now and am convinced that they do work.
Prior to getting this product my small lawn had been gradually deteriorating under the strain of two dogs' regular peeing, however as soon as I started using Dog Rocks the problem noticeably improved.
Since then I have got into a regular pattern of using them.
The packet says the Dog Rocks last for three months, and indeed they come with a little sticker to put in your diary to remind yourself that they need replacing.
My approach has rather been to keep using the same Rocks until I see the urine patches start to re-appear and then replace them. Each time I replace the Rocks the "burnt" patches disappear once again, giving me renewed proof each time I'm not just throwing my cash away.
The only downside really is the hassle of making sure your dog is drinking most of it's water from a supply that has been pre-soaked in the rocks. My approach is to leave the rocks sitting around in a jug full of water and then fill the dogs' bowls from that water.
If you just leave the rocks directly in the dog bowl, then it's likely your dog will drink from the bowl before the rocks have had a chance to weave their magic.
It's also worth saying the results aren't perfect. Your pooches' favourite wee zones may still struggle. I have a washing line pole in the centre of the lawn which my male dog can't resist, and no amount of Dog Rocks seem able to save the area immediately around that.
They do however do a fantastic job of protecting from the more random patches which my lady dog leaves lying around.
I have no idea how they work, and as other reviewers have commented it's hard to imagine how they could..
My own experience over several years' use however is that they definitely make things significantly better.
