|Dog urine contains concentrations of salts, so it has probably thrown the soil pH off a little. I suggest digging the soil out of the bare areas and replacing it with fresh soil from a different part of your yard. You can then spread about an inch of compost over the new soil and dig it into the soil. The compost contains soil organisms that can help balance to the soil biology and chemistry. Rake each area level and overseed. The new grass should sprout and grow quickly now that spring weather is on the horzon. Best wishes with your repair job!
