Question Puppy gardener

Kratos is 3 months old and I guess he thinks he's a gardener because he chews and pulls up the grass. Lately we have been letting him go outside in the backyard so he can burn off some of that puppy energy. He loves running along the fence back and forth with his neighbor whose an older pitbull. He'll stay outside for a good 20 minutes at a time. For the first couple days it was going great, till the other day when he woke me up gagging then threw up. After examining the pretty big solid mass (i'd say it was as thick as a cigar and half the length). It was a combination of grass (we have crab grass so it's pretty thick), neon orange lint from getting a hold of his Chuck it ball, and my hair (my hairs waist length and when I don't wake up to him nestling his nose into my neck, or the millions of kisses then he starts chewing my hair).

I've tried the "leave it" with him and he'll just drop to the ground and take a big ol chunk right out the ground and run around with it in his mouth. Then if I tell him "drop it" he'll then stop and start eating it then run again till he finishes it. If we are in the house and he picks something up and I tell him to "drop it" he will either drop it or he will bring it to me. Outside is a totally different case though because he thinks i'm playing with him then.

So yesterday and today he has been just picking on his food. Give him some blueberries, a Milkbone, some pear, he'll sit there and eat it. So he does still have sort of an appetite. I haven't changed his food or started giving him anything new. He's not bloated or have any bulges in his stomach, and he still runs around like the hyper happy puppy that he is. Ohh yeah and his poops look normal just only half the size now. Anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to get him to stop?

Peanut picks up chunks of grass and runs with it too! He never eats it he runs stops takes a mouthful and as hes running with it he is dropping the grass from his mouth. He has always done this since he was a puppy and hes almost 2 now. Sorry I dont have any suggestion to get him to not do that other than when he does it offer him something else?

Usually dogs will find something to do if their bored.. and by the sounds of it if he's not listening in the back yard but is in the house he has claimed the yard as his not yours... so alot of the eating could just stem from the fact he doesn't want you to have it. The grass won't hurt him if he was just eating grass not playing with it I would say sounds like he's not feeling well but that doesn't sound like the case. My suggestion is start some puppy training classes these are a breed that NEED something to do boredom is not delt with well they tend to get destructive.

I wouldn't really care if he just ran and played with it (he looks cute doing it ), it's just the whole eating aspect of it that has me worried. I've tried getting his attention off of it with like the Chuck it ball or his other ball. He'll chase after it and bring it to me but as soon as he picks up some grass he's back at it again. Ohh yeah and if I finally get his attention off the grass he turns to digging.

Sounds like he just needs some training to learn that he has to listen to you and that listening to you is fun and a happy thing... Once you get him to a point where he thinks its fun to pay attention to you those other things wont be as fun.. but again he's still a pit and needs lots of exercise

Thanks for the reply I can see where he could be bored and this whole thing steaming from that. Now to find him some puppy classes, the only ones I can think of are the ones from either Petco or Petsmart.

Please dont use those ones They are a joke... you may have to work on it but find a good trainer within your area don't use petco or petsmart alot of us have had nothing but problems with them and they are not worth the money you would be spending.

do a google search for trainers in your area.
i did petsmart training with peanut. it was okay but honestly it wasnt anything you couldnt learn from just from people on here its really really basic stuff a lot of it i had already worked with peanut on my own with so it was more like a refresher course.
