Go buy a get a bottle of grass save pills at Petsmart. The pills change the Ph of the dog's urine so it won't harm grass. You can tie a bow on the bottle a give it as a gift to your neighbor. Everyone likes gifts.

Maybe the dog marking his territory will keep the snakes, rats and other animals out of your house.

You could just put up a lawn sign with the message: "Don't Squat on Me." Perhaps put up a polite lawn sign and they will get the message. This sign is very common in Northern Virginia.

pH isn't actually the problem. It's the volume of urine and the concentration of nitrogen in it. Doggie lawn spots are actually a simple case of fertilizer burn. Here is a good backgrounder from Texas A&M (no commercial interests to pitch) on the causes and effects of the problem and good and bad approaches to them. You could always print out some copies, make them into paper airplanes, and sail them into your neighbor's yard just to kind of even things out...
