The primary reason that your pooch is indulging in the green blades typically found in his backyard is that it tastes good. Yep, it’s that simple, It tastes good to them. If you observe more closely you will likely find that there are specific blades of grass that pooch favors. She’ll forage for the same type of young bright green grass. The darker, thicker and older blades are normally passed over. One reason we think ‘furry’ chooses the young blades is because they are sweeter and more tender hence tastier. Another reason is that the young blades offer ample amounts of Chlorophyll. We all benefit from daily greens.


There is another reason you might see your pooch snarfing down gobs of green grass without regard.  This behavior indicated stomach upset.  She may have ingested something that needs to come back up and out.  Maybe bad food or some random environmental intake.  This way of grass eating will more likely produce vomiting.  Which was likely the reason for her eating gobs of it in the first place.

Dogs are amazing creatures and we can learn from watching them and their behaviors.
