Smile Puppy eats everything!

Hello all I have a seven month female dobe and she eats everything! I know that's she is a puppy so that's a normal thing but she really likes to eat wood, dirt and grass that's like her favorite thing to eat! my grandma has said dobermans like wood because when she had dobes they ate everything that was wood in her yard. I dont know if this is true so I just wanted to see if other dobe owners notice this too lol.

Looks to me that eating everything is pretty normal for Dobes. Ours loves socks. I can't tell you the number of socks he has thrown up. I know his eating socks is very dangerous and we have taken many steps to keep him from doing it. So far we've been lucky. The wood thing is just because they like to chew, I bet. Just my opinion.

Kyrah loves to chew on sticks some of it she eats and some she doesnt. I tell her all the time she is not a horse b/c she looks like she is grazing lots of the time. We are very lucky that she loves socks but just shakes them for a bit and relocates them she doesnt swallow them.

My Diva ate a Swiffer dust rag. She grabbed it off the table and swallowed it quickly when I caught her. My vet said to use peroxide to make her throw it up. I'm more concerned about what she eats that I don't see.

Eat wood, dirt and grass ?

Our 8 month old Kelly likes a little wood & tall grass...I leave a few sticks outside on the lawn for her.
She like to debark them and carry the sticks around, like a toy.
- inside the house, she leaves the wood coffee table & kitchen table/chairs alone
- training the puppy early, Dad had to tell girl to leave the corner of the antique spinning wheel alone (he-he)...no chewing allowed, on furniture

I saw this, and then realized it was an older thread, but it is something that I think is common, in terms of the grass and dirt eating?
I often joke that I do not own dobermans, I own dober-goats because they graze ALL the time! I sometimes think I should be putting a salad down next to their dinner just so they arent eating my back yard! lol

I used to be pretty complacent about the grazing business until one of my dogs followed a couple of bitches who belonged to a friend who was taking him to an agility trial and learned from them to yank up grass in big clumps and eat it roots, dirt and all. Five days later doing x-rays and barium (x-rays four times a day and barium morning and late afternoon) to see what was happening with his slow moving partial blockage I started putting basket muzzles on the dogs when they were out in the yard at certain times of the year (early spring mosty) when the grass seemed to be the most popular thing in sight. And if that hadn't convinced me a friend's Dobe ended up in surgery which turned out to be for a stomach totally impacted with grass--he couldn't pass it and couldn't puke it up. Thank heavens we both worked for vet clinics--even without surgery in the case of my dog and without sending the film out to a radiologist to be read 25 x-rays runs into a lot of money.

I don't worry about the sticks and bark--they've all chewed that stuff up so it just provides more fiber in their diet. The bark nuggests that the previous owners of this house had put in every former flower and vegetable bed did worry me but it turned out they chewed up the big chunks and it turned into more fiber.

And puppies are terrible--they eat anything. But then so do toddlers--a friends kid was eating something while he was sitting on a blanket (not quite walking yet) while we were digging up an old garden plot--I noticed he had something in his hand and was eating it--his mom went to see what it was--AIIIIIIEEEEEEE!!!! It was HALF of a whopping big grasshopper! ICK!!!!! (Boy, and did that kid have a tizzy fit when his mother took the uneaten half away from him.)

My girl used to like cloth and what ever else she could get in her mouth. And She would swallow it! If she knew I saw her she would run away from me - chew and swallow before I could get to her. I started trading with her cloth for a treat but she got smart to that and swallow whatever it was then came for her treat. She doesn't eat everything like she use to (she is 1 year old this coming week) but she still like to chew on sticks.
