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.

robeangyalchen 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

Again my entire yard is rocks. It is difficult to catch every rock he picks up. He did not grind his teeth down while with me because I do pay attention. He was with my mother for a couple days while I was very ill. I do my best to train him otherwise, I was just curious if there were any other tricks that I might be missing. He has already gotten better about leaving the rocks alone.

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.

Castlemaid 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.
