The concept of dogs eating grass is very common and is not new. This was a common issue for the people back in the old days. So how do you stop your dog from eating grass?
Grass is an easy source of nutrition for a dog, especially if it is kept out of the house, but that does not mean that it will stay out. Dogs are nature’s scavengers and they love to eat anything that is edible. It is best to teach your dog that the grass is not good to eat and that you are the keeper of it.
When a dog eats grass they will often get bored of it very quickly. This is another reason why you need to reward your dog for good behavior. After your dog has done something that you consider to be good, take a piece of grass and give it to them. If your dog then tries to get the grass by gnawing at it or digging, ignore it or make it stop and then reward them.
I have also noticed that sometimes dogs start chewing grass because they do not like the smell of it or because they feel threatened. You need to show your dog that it is not acceptable to chew on this type of food.
Dogs are also very attached to their toys and some can be afraid to let go of them. They will turn the same way as they do when they are scared and once they realize they are not safe, they will stop doing what they were doing.
Your dog may become scared of something around the house and will become nervous or afraid. In this case you need to reassure your dog by showing them the same thing as you did with the grass, reward them for the behavior that you want to see them show. You also need to put away something that the dog is not supposed to be touching.
Once your dog knows that it is okay to eat grass, then it will stop any bad behavior. It will no longer fear you, and it will be safe all the time.
Dogs that are older and the ones that are not getting enough exercise have been known to be very unhappy and depressed. You should not neglect your dog’s feelings, so if you notice that they are not doing as they should be doing, do not hesitate to put them to bed early or take them for a walk.
Some people do not understand that animals are emotional beings and you should not take the anger out of their heart and because of this many dogs end up in the pound. Do not get upset with your dogs when they do not like something, instead, enjoy the joy that they bring you. Play games with them, make them do tricks, and remember that they will be happy with the fun they are having and they will learn to like it.
It is good to provide some outdoor play area for your dogs, because they will also get out more if they live in a home that is nice and comfortable, rather than one that is overcrowded and filled with rough living conditions. Some dogs become very sad and depressed when they cannot go outside for play, so you want to make sure that you provide a comfortable place for them to play in.
Dogs are social animals and they should not be confined to a home where there is too much noise and no one is paying attention to them. It is very important that you choose a home that is near a park or playground so that your dog can play with other dogs and stay busy all day long.
Dogs are able to get along well with other animals and can learn how to be around them without becoming aggressive. Try to do some research on your dogs’ breed and find a good home for them that has a lot of activity.
