Is there a commercial fertilizer I can purchase that is safe for pets? I want to plant grass in my back yard, but I have a dog and want to find a safe fertilizer.

Not really, but several granules of fertilizer won't harm your dog. Just practice good application and clean-up procedures according to the label directions. The label will tell you how long to keep pets off treated areas, which is usually as long as it takes to dry. Make sure you clean up any spills on sidewalks, paths and driveways. Keep fertilizer and other chemicals high up on a shelf or locked away.
