We have two male dogs and have patches of dead/dying grass where that have urinated. How do we bring those back to life?

Dog urine can upset the pH of your soil so the best approach to the spots in your lawn is to dig out the dead areas and replace the top 2-3 inches of soil with fresh soil from another part of your yard. Mix in a little compost, fill in the areas and then overseed. To minimize urine damage, you can hose off the area to dilute the urine - as soon after the fact as possible. Wish there were an easier solution.
