Marcus did it also while he was on the Science Diet, since you live fairly close to me I assume there is a mineral in our soil that isn't in the SD, I switched him to the Royal Canin and after about a week he lost most of his interest in eating dirt. Or maybe it was just timing and he out grew his interest in the dirt?

that or something mighty interesting is walking around and marking that area.


my one dog sits with his nose in the dirt in one area and sometimes i catch him licking. i finally seen a neighbors cat pee there yesterday and now i know what he was doing.

Gizmo eats dirt also, he likes to dig for worms...not all the time, but especially in my mom's yard, she has very rich soil....it's funny though, because I thought he was a Chihuahua, not a bird...LOL

My baby eats Science Diet, he loves it! My poodle grew up with it too, so I doubt it's the food, it's probably just a phase....they are puppies ya know...anything is interesting as long as its chewable!!
