I can only say I feel your pain
We used to have a large yard and the yards on either side of us were elevated, plus the soil was damp clay. My Grandpa (who acts like a historian) also insists there are underground streams and springs that feed into the main stream. Our yard was usually either standing water or like a saturated sponge. One day I photographed ducks floating in my yard! Some days I was honestly thisclose to having some sort of break down! Especially with two young dogs (2 year old and brand new puppy GSD) and a large dog that liked to try to dig under the fence. And to make matters worse, the house we rented had beige and *white* carpet! Before we moved I just gave up. I got used blankets and would keep them on the floor and then block off the other areas, so I had sort of a quarantine area for the dogs.
