I live in the midwest region illinois and wisconsin border. I am planning on taking back my brutally destroyed yard from my two pit bulls, one male and one female. I am planning a full repair as 75% of the yard is now just dirt. my question is, what is the best type of grass to grow in this climate and might stand a chance of surviving 2 dogs?

You can either use 100 percent Kentucky blue or you can plant a mixture of perennial rye, fine fescues and Kentucky blue. The University offers a free publication with descriptions of the turf types and how best to establish your new lawn. Here's the website:
