My dog is a ROCK eater!!
I just got a report card from my doggie day care for Sawyer, my 10 month old hound-mix. Apparently, I have the canine equivalent of a kindergarten paste eater...because he is eating rocks out in the play-yard. Not all day, just one or two per day. This is pea gravel, not granite chips or anything.
They have tried to stop him, but when they approach him to say "No", it makes him swallow the rock immediately. Anyway, they made me sign a paper yesterday indemnifing them from liability if it should ever make him sick.
He does not eat gravel at home, but then again, I really don't have gravel at home for him to eat.
Guys, this is a great day care and the staff are absolutely fabulous and wonderful people, but I don't want to risk my pup's health just so he can play. Will he out grow this? Can you train a dog not to eat gravel? Should I seek out a non-gravel day care? Anything I can do? HELP!
