Puppy wants to eat everything....
Hi, My 15 week old female golden puppy wants to eat EVERYTHING - not just chew it, actually eat it. It is mostly a problem outside. She eats pinecones, rabbit poop, fresh grash, dried grass clippings, plants, dirt clumps, etc. Of course we stop her, but it is pretty annoying. I'm worried she will get sick from something in our yard! Her poop often has undigested grass and pinecone pieces. She will also try to eat paper and paper towels - I don't think she's actually ingested any, though, because we've caught her and pulled it from her mouth. We supervise her all the time, but she does get a quick bite here and there of the outside stuff.
Today at the park was super frustrating. She was trying to eat the grass, which had buttercups in in (so that had me worried). I kept stopping her and redirecting her with a toy I brought. Then she snatched a mushroom - I'm hoping she didn't each much. Finally I moved to a picnic table that was surrounded in cement and she found an old watermellon rind to chew on. ARGH!
Am I being overly protective? Any advice?
