Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/homemade-pet-friendly-weed-killer.htm

Here's a recipe that may help using 1 gallon of white vinegar, 1 lb. table salt, and 8 drops of liquid dish soap. Mix the vinegar and salt in a pan on the stovetop. Bring to a boil so that the salt dissolves into the vinegar. Remove from stove and stir in the dish soap. Allow the mixture to cool. Pour into spray bottle and use a stream setting to aim directly into the middle of the dandelion rosette so that you do not kill the surrounding grass. Dandelions should die within a day.
