    Depending on how much running is going on in your backyard, cotoneaster is pretty tough and will spread quickly.  I like using ornamental grasses as dogs can't break them, they just bend when a dog runs through them, like Blue Oat Grass.  Lawn should be fine for a play area in the backyard too, as long as you're not operating a dog park!  You could also use hog's fuel or sand for a play area.  It really depends on how big of an area you are thinking and how active your dog(s) are.
