|TitanS_MoM||Thank you! Thats what I've been doing.. Like I mentioned above it was out of my control when he ground down his teeth.. I just want to make sure I can break the habit now. I can't wait until we can have a grassy yard for him and not a yard of rocks. I take him to the park all the time and I have loaded him up with chew toys.|

He is handsome love his colour.
Supervise, teach him to drop it or leave it...make sure he does not swallow rocks, if he chews it do not hesitate to put your hand inside his mouth to take it out and you will be just fine

All puppy or most puppy goes through this stage, supervise. As stated already emergency surgery can expensive and sometimes the pup don't make it.
Take it as an opportunity to teach leave it and drop it, mine did the same.
If taught properly he will learn to avoid it within a month Happy training.
ETA: i like his color, he is so cute..Please share some pics..we love to see puppy pics
Edit again; sorry found the pics Meet Titan
NOOB me lol

how can your dog chew on rocks if you're there? your dog has
chewed it's teeth down from the rocks. that means you're
not taking the rocks away from him. leash your dog
and don't let him chew on rocks. don't leave your pup
outside unattended. if your pup does manage to get
a rock take it away from immediately.

|Harry and Lola||Please be careful with this, you must do everything you can to stop him. I know of a Samoyed that died from eating stones and rocks, not trying to scare you but it can be deadly.|

Supervise, supervise, supervise!!! Last thing you want is a huge vet bill for emergency surgery because your pup swallowed rocks that caused an impaction/blockage.
I raised a young dog that went through a rock-eating phase when still at about the same age as Titan - just supervised, redirected, and if possible, picked him up put him down on grassy areas so we'd avoid the gravel he was so fond of completely. If not allowed to continue, the rock chewing behaviour usually extinguishes itself.
You want to stop this now so it does not become a life-long habit. The only way to stop this is just hard work and the personal effort of supervising and preventing.

I have a feeling if you had a grassy filled area your pup would be doing the goat imitation eating your lawn.
Be vigilant as the other poster mentioned and this shall come to pass.
