Dogs running on lawns
I'm sorry, but there isn't a plant out there that will tolerate constant foot traffic. Well, a weed called plantain, maybe, but no turf grasses or ground covers. One thing you can try is installing those high-traffic turf grids used in some botanic gardens and golf courses. You could build the dogs a boardwalk or pave their path, too, but it's possible they'd avoid the path for the more comfortable feel of the earth under their feet.
