Eating Rocks

I have a 10 month old mini and she has just started the habit of running around with rocks in her mouth and sometimes eats them. I know this can be dangerous and is very frustrating trying to catch her.

Any suggestions??

I'm having the same problem. Loki is a 5 month old mixed Australian shepherd who eats rocks! Not sure what to do about that one!

My Aussie ate rocks too.

Our Aussie ate rocks as well. We just lost him a few days ago. I couldn't get the rock out of his throat. I miss him so bad. Apparently it's not unusual for these types of breeds to eat rocks. His name was Bo Bo.
