ZoeD1217 Keep her on a long lead outside. Then just lead her away from where she is munching. Either to a toy or back inside. Mine was like that too. Eating EVERY THING outside. Dirt, grass, bugs and sticks. Even at 6 months old I have to put the long lead back on when she gets a wild hair to dig up the yard. I never leave mine out in the yard alone for longer than a few minutes to do her business. If she won't listen we go back inside.

llombardo All my dogs eat grass. I'm going to look into the liquid form for them.

Courtney llombardo, I was looking for that article to post

Russ eats grass sometimes. I would only care if the grass had chemicals on it.

If a dog is excessively eating grass (noticeable difference than normal grass eating) I would pay attention and worry about bloat.

Don't hit the pup. What if she honestly doesn't feel good or the food you are feeding is making her sick. There are so many reasons dogs do this.

llombardo It's not bad for them, it's actually good for them. This article explains it Chlorophyll for Dogs | Why Your Dog Needs It Daily

Maxil when she doesn't like the food she gets served , she doesn't eat it , so I give her another meal and she eats it all , she keeps sniffing and eating grass .

Pawsed First of all, please stop hitting your puppy. It's obviously not working and it is not a good way to discipline your dog.

I'm certainly no expert, but I would suspect that she's not happy with her food and it's upsetting her stomach.

Romany It's a common issue with some GSD's,
my girl seemed to do it when she was shedding.
Not sure if that was the reason,but she would do a dance to get outside to eat grass.

Maxil yes she does because she sometimes leave some food , can you tell me how to make her stop •_• she is driving me crazy

Broncs Are you sure she/he likes what they're eating? Or isn't eating too much? A lot of times they will eat grass if they have an upset stomach
