This is such a difficult question. Unfortunately, active dogs and wet/snowy weather and a good looking lawn just don't mix well. The heavy traffic is just too destructive to all grasses. You might have to consider devoting a portion of the yard to the puppies and keep them off the main lawn area most of the time. In the puppy area you could use a bark mulch or gravel to try to keep down the mud. I wish I could be more encouraging.
