with some basic Scotts Turf Builder with Iron. How long should I keep the dog off it? The bag doesn't seem to say anything about pets.

I've never worried about my dog after fertilizing. Although if your dogs rolls around or eats grass there may be a problem.

At least until after the next rain or good watering or two.

I've been a landscaper for 5 years now and have noticed Scotts Turf Builder needs a lot of time to settle in. I'd say keep him off for at least 3 weeks. I'd go a month to be safe. Next year look for Preen for your yard. We use it for our customers and it is unbeatable.

I would say that would be enough for it to have settled enough that it couldn't hurt you dog unless your dog is a grass eater.

I agree, Preen makes some NICE yard stuff. Used to use their stuff for beds all the time.
