no my dogs do the same thing. I ask the vet about it and he said it okay, just like they chew on sticks all the time which isn't bad either (but don't like that they do it) I guess just cheap chew toys. And our shih poo eats dirt. Which I also asked the vet about he told me to stop being a worry wart.

thanks guys. Everytime she eats the grass, sometimes she jokes on it, when one strand gets stuck down her throught or something. I don't like it either, but I guess I can't stop it either. Oh well. At least it's not harmfull. Thanks again. :-)
grass can make a dog vomit so sometimes they will eat it to relieve an upset stomach. others , including my tow asd's, enjoy eating grass just because. they actually graze like sheep and cows do ... move from one end of the yard to another to find good blades of grass to eat lol.
the only way it would be harmful is if you use pesticides on your lawn. or if she eats grass in someone elsses yard or on walks. the only grass i allow my guys to eat is our grass because we do not spray insecticides on it.
We dont have grass here where I live but my boys will go for a specific plant.. If I see them eating the plant I give them some cabbage in their food... it satisfies their desire for eating grass, or in my case the plants. I think dogs just just want a little greens on occasion. :)
