He's almost a year now (about 10 months old), and I thought it was just a phase, but it's not so much like that as it seems.
I've had problems with him eating wood (from chewing on tree branches), which almost caused him a visit to the operating room because he would not poop, and threw up everything he ate or drank.
He doesn't eat his poop, but he eats dirt, rocks, branches, leafs, grass, plastic bags, bones, and even dry wall or anything in between. Yes, he is the one out of my 3 dogs that gets into the trash, the other two know they shouldn't and they don't!
I've tried to move the trash bags to other places where he can't reach them, but that does not seem like a reasonable solution. He doesn't care if I'm right there, if there is something good in the trash can, he's going to at least take a nice big whiff out of it while possibly sticking his head in there to see if he can reach anything.
This is not something I had to emphasize so much as to yell "no" or "bad dog" with my other dogs.
So my question is, how do I handle my rowdy, hyper, eating-everything-he-can dog?
