lily will hunt in the grden or on the grass when i take her for walks & chew on anything.. she got hold of a lump of soil & sure she ate a bit... papers blowing she'll grab & anything she gets her eyes on... will she eventually grow out of this curiosity behaviour??

Ozzy still get leaves, twigs, branches moss, you name it out of the garden - I will always remove wood and twigs, etc as soon as possible just incase they get a splinter - not to safe.

I don't know how old little lilly is, but if she is a pup then she might be teething. Even if not I would provide her with things that are ok to chew on so that way she doesn't get hurt. Frozen towels are good, kongs, bully sticks...anything to keep her busy.

Cody is the same way so I completely understand, he is a vacuum cleaner in the yard. :yikes

Amber's just gone through the 'lets turn the house into the garden' phase. Thankfully, most of my yard is concrete so there's precious little to be dragged in apart from leaves anyway...Holly did this too and it seemed forever before she outgrew it. She still has gardening phases, but nowhere near as bad as they were!

Tucker eats anything that grows, twigs, sticks, grass, leaves, anything he finds in the yard, he'll eat, he even puts rocks in his mouth and I believe he tries to chew them.

When he was a puppy he had a period of chewing on the woodwork, the molding on the doorways. He took a chunk out of one of them. He thankfully has stopped that. A friend recommended I put tobasco sauce when I first noticed a little paint chipping, after I put the hot sauce is when he did his biggest damage. Apparently, I'd seasoned the wood for him and made it more palatable. Then there were those sunglasses.

We had the bitten stairs also - they seem to have grown out of it - but I did put pepper on it but I don't think that really worked. :roll:
