We rescued a stray (mostly GSP) about 2 months ago. We're in remodel phase on a house we just bought. The dog is about a year old, according to the vet. He has eaten rocks and brick since we found him. I assume it passes. Today we caught hin eating screws & nails. Does anybody know what the heck is wrong with him? It seems like these things should kill him unless surgically removed, and I'm not sure I want to pay for surgery, especially if he's going to eat them again. I don't know how to keep him away from such things on a mini-farm in the middle of a remodel. Any thoughts or ideas?

Some people might not like what I'll suggest but a dogtra 1900s turned up to 60(goes to 127) stopped a female gsd i have from eating rocks. And this dog is widevopen and constantly worked so boredom wasn't a factor. She's always chewing on a kong or ball but I couldn't take a chance on her ingesting rocks or breaking teeth or worse. Just that quick and no more rock eating. Long line or prong or redirection ever stopped it. The dogtra shut that mess down asap


Stay out of my beer fridge or I'll release the hounds

lay a hand full out in the sun. That'll break him.

I would think the nails and screws would break him from eating nails and screws.

must be something about the GSPs and trying to eat weird stuff. I have one that is 3 years old, she doesn't really do it anymore but at one point in time she ate socks like they were dog treats, I quit counting at 22!.


We are not perfect, only forgiven!!!

They do eat weird stuff. Been looking at forums and there's lots of crazy stories.
