Dog licking wet grass

I have a large fenced in yard with a small pool. I have two dogs that are both females. The yard is about half grass and half woodchips with a small cemented walk way. When the dogs are in the yard I can keep them on a leash to prevent them from getting to the grass. However, when the dogs come back into the house they will get a large pile of grass and water on the floor. I know that this can lead to diseases like Giardia. My question is, how do I protect my lawn from the dogs getting into the lawn?

You could consider mowing that grass into a low pile and then mowing a few inches off the bottom of your grass to discourage them from chewing. And it is probably a good idea to have a cover on the pool to keep them from getting into that too.

I'd say go with what @Germ-Man suggests and try to keep their access to the grass to a minimum by putting a mower-proof cover on the pool (assuming you don't want the dogs jumping in the pool).

Lawn damage? That's a little different. If you can prevent your lawn from being damaged by the dogs, do it. But I can't imagine you can.

A couple of suggestions:

1. If you can, make it a no-leash zone in your yard. Then at least you're not getting dog waste everywhere.

2. You could also try to teach your dog not to do that, which isn't the ideal situation but it's the only thing you can do to prevent them from doing it.

That's the thing, I can't really tell what the lawn damage is going to be from. The dogs haven't actually damaged it yet.

I am planning to mow it off so they can't get into it. I was thinking about getting a pool cover but I can't afford that right now and I don't know if it would keep the water from getting on my woodchips. The only time I leave the dogs outside is when the yard is full of poop and they're in the yard. I really don't want to mow the yard off.

I've taken the kids out for 2 weeks for a week now. She's been pretty good until this morning. When I opened the door and let her back in, she got all over the carpet, made a mess, and knocked over the coffee table. She's very well behaved around me, but not in the house. Any tips to get her back to her good girl self?

I think that might be the best option. They have a little fence in the backyard but the pool is at the very end of the fence and there's a long driveway that goes through the fence.

It could be a combination of things: that you need a fence in front of the pool, that you need to make sure your driveway is safe from the dogs when you open the gate, and that you need to get a dog door installed (or put a screen door on your back door).

I'd be worried about a dog door if I was in your situation. I'm sorry but that would be a problem. Your back door can't be locked because you wouldn't have a way to get into the house. And a gate is a problem because I'm guessing you'd have trouble getting them in and out of your yard. You could always get a dog door but I don't know that that would be practical. If you really can't afford a fence or a pool cover, just getting her back into the house could be the best thing for your carpet.
