i now have a small yard and four dogs. Anyone know what I can do to minimise the damage dog urine will do to my grass?

Ive seen special biscuits that you can buy at pet shops that supposedly change the acidity of your pets urine so it doesn't kill the grass.

They're somewhat pricey and my picky pooch wouldn't eat them so I cant say if they work or not.

You could try training them to go in one spot of the yard and putting down mulch or something so the rest of the yard stays nice. They sell scented stakes that you can use for this.

My yard doesn't have much grass in the back to begin with so its not a huge problem.. its part of the reason why my boyfriend wont give up the grass in the front yard so easily.

My sister. with her small city lot and a dog who goes in and out frequently, has a hose ever at the ready to spray the spot, diluting the urine. Her lawn is beautiful.

The hose trick does work, although we had trouble keeping up with two dogs. Ultimately we created a "doggie zone" behind our pond with a layer of mulch on it, just like Emidawg suggests. It took a couple of weeks of steady corralling and coaxing, but now they know exactly where to go, and the lawn looks great!
