Yes I have to watch him closely are he will pick up small sticks and hold them with the end of the stick in his mouth so I try to keep all those picked up and if he finds one then take it a way from him. I so a dog several years ago get one stuck in the roof of his mouth.That picture is adorable! Not to jump on the “no sticks ever” bandwagon, but do be careful. My boy was running and pounced on a stick. It got stuck in his paw and I had to go pull it out. Some people don’t even realize sticks can be dangerous. Just keep an eye out!
We took the smaller tennis ball away and picked up a large chuck it ball that we play fetch with since he was getting the whole tennis ball in his mouth.yuppers., always be aware of sticks, small rocks and small balls. Some things are safer to play with than others.
