Foraging/Eating Everything In Sight?
We have a 10-week old black tri (Wyatt). He's a wonderful little bugger but my biggest frustration (apart from his biting, which I think will pass with time) is that when we take him outside to go, he will forage around in the grass and try to eat anything he finds—bark, acorns, dandelions, leaves, small sticks, etc. While I don't think dandelions and leaves will affect his digestion much, I worry about him chewing up and swallowing bark, acorns, and small sticks. Is there anything my wife and I can do to deter him from foraging and instead focus on going to the bathroom or interacting with us while we're outside?
