    I know dogs eat grass to vomit and help clean their digestive track but is there any way you can break them from eating it?

    I use the "leave it" command. And my dogs just eat it for fun. They don't vomit or anything.

    My puppy eats it a lot too. Sometimes I'd swear he's a cow. If it gets to be excessive I tell him "leave it" then start throwing the ball or something. He hasn't puked from it either.

    Many dogs eat grass and it shouldn't be a problem unless their eating a lot, which can cause blockages. I don't believe dogs eat grass in order to induce emesis or "clean their digestive system." I'm not sure where you came up with that, but if that is true can you please provide some sort of citation (medical study). This should be taken care of by teaching your dog "no" or "leave it" and even more importantly keep your lawn trimmed close.

    I googled it and that's what it said. Cats and dogs both do it.

    I don't think they eat TO vomit, they just eat it just to eat it. Yea they may vomit if it gags them but that's not WHY they do it. I think that's a myth.
