Question: My dogs run in the backyard so around this huge tree there is no grass just dirt....what grass seed should i put down and how do i make it grow if they run on it? Should i keep them away from that area while trying to grow so grass?

Answer: Sunni,

You can't have dogs and grass in the spots where they lay or run. The foot traffic is just too much. Your options are to either reroute the dogs off of that area until grass can become established, or to put some other material such as mulch chips in that spot to cover the soil surface.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
