It's really difficult to diagnose a plant problem without the opportunity to inspect the plant so I can only offer educated guesses. Dog urine can cause the symptoms you describe, as can overly wet soils. Rosemary roots in soil that is constantly moist or soggy, will suffocate, causing its foliage to turn brown and die. If you're sure dogs are not relieving themselves on your rosemary hedge, you'll want to check the soil to make sure it drains well. If it remains soggy for extended periods of time you may want to dig the affected plants, amend the soil with compost or other organic matter to ensure good drainage, then reset the plants. Hope this solves the problem!
