If you’re like many dog owners, you may have spent countless hours researching and purchasing the ideal food for your dog. Even after all that work to provide a balanced and nutritious diet for your pup, your four-legged family may still have a habit of heading out to the backyard to chow down on plain-old grass.
Actually, it's quite common for dogs to snack on grass. There are times when it can be a cause for concern, but, usually, it’s just your dog’s natural instincts kicking in.
If eating grass gets your dog sick, try to keep your dog away from the backyard immediately after eating to prevent them from eating your lawn for dessert.
If your dog has a habit of eating grass and other plants, read up on common plants that can sometimes be toxic for dogs so that you can make sure your backyard is a safe place.
Also, you should be extra-careful to keep them away from your lawn immediately after seeding, fertilizing, or apply a weed removal product to your lawn. Remember, too, that while BarkYard products contain ingredients that are safe for your pets to be around when they are used as directed, they are not meant to be eaten by your dog!
