Dog urine can cause those spots, as can a fungal disease of some sort. At this point the best approach is to dig out the grass and the top few inches of soil in the dead circles, replace the soil with some from another part of the yard, mix in a little compost to keep the soil loose and then refil the holes and spread grass seeds over the soil. This way you can eliminate any fungals spores or excessive salts from dog urine and the new grass should grow well. Hope so!
