Dogs are pretty hard on any turf or groundcovers. You might try mondo grass (an ornamental that doesn't require mowing) or Ajuga (carpet bugle) which is low growing and tolerates foot traffic. The only other alternative is to use a pet-friendly artificial turf in the area. There are many types to choose from and some have an amazingly natural look. It can be hosed off. Best wishes with your dog-friendly yard!
