we keep him in a cage at night only. He's a small dog. Like a beagle. We keep him in at night because we are afraid that someone might took him. He's a type of dog that befriend with stranger

we cannot cage him during day time. if we chain him the whole morning...it will not be healthful for a dog.

From the items you describe, it sounds like your dog is looking for more fiber. Are his bowel movements normal? Of course, he has to be checked. But this is my guess. Good luck.

Dog dont usually eat plants unless they are unwell. Bring them to see a vet. As for apple, banana, papaya and other fruits, you might want to watch it. Some fruits might give them a bad tummy.

Ok your Dog eats plants because she or he feel awful she feels something strange with her body maybe she is feeling sick maybe she eats something that becomes her body feels not so good! Dogs and Cats first remedy or first aid is to eat grass but since there where no grass available around your yard they have no choice but to eat your plant! Now after eating plants they will blow it up again together with the toxin they intake! I hope this will help you.

woaaahhh.. what kind of dos is that?? i think you have to bring your dog to a veterinarian. that is very weird case. my dogs eat grass for their medicine but to eat everything he sees.. wait a minute that is unnatural.

It might be because it's growing teeth? How old is your dog? If it's a young dog: Try to collar him somewhere else away from plants and shoes. Get him an artificial bones (made from unwanted clothes.)

our dog is going 3years old. at night, he stay in a cage but we let him roam around our garden at daytime. we will place a gate at the backyard so the dog stays at the back. tomorrow, my wife and i will buy carabao grass, some plants and walks to rehab our backyard. we will place his house there too.
