As for the dirt, mine eat it occasionally and it has never hurt them. Now the rocks that's a different story, as someone else mentioned they can cause a blockage and that means surgery. You just need to monitor Bo when he is outside and not let him pick up the rocks or anything else that might cause him harm, at 10 wks he is still a baby and for his safety you need to be there to take away anything that should not be eaten. Good luck, I know that is easier said than done because they can be so quick but you will be keeping him from possible harm.
