    Thumbs down Dog tearing up grass

    Ram? Yes this thread is about Ram....:



    Ram, is a good boy...well, most of the time. When we play together with his (big) ball, if he's not being chased he tears up grass and when I run at him he grabs his ball and runs away! He a beautiful dog and is very well trained, I don't know how to stop him from doing THAT. Does it have something to do with him eating grass? (He eats it all the time.) Or his he just exited to be playing? When he pulls it up he shakes his head really hard and then coughs it out. He's a silly dog:

    Maybe he really wants to eat grass? My dog also loves to eat grass,but this is the behavior of abdominal discomforts or lacking certain vitamins. (You could find the detailed info in this article.)
    It's best to stop this behavior, because the grass may hide some waste or have harmful chemicals (such as herbicide) we can't see. You could give him a "stop" command when he sniffs the grass. A well-trained pup would understand and obey your order quickly.
    What's more, feeding him vitamins can remove this strange habit as well. Find your vet to prescribe the medications.

    I'm not sure what the owners feed him. I only take care of him a few times a week. Thanks.
