Are you overfeeding? What kind of food is it? Does she have worms? (If she hasn't been dewormed then she may very well have them)

for grass eating--I have sucessfully used the "leave it" command, especially when on a walk, or at the dog park.
for barking--using the "quiet" command has worked well.

Orson was a major 'grazer'.............He wanted to eat grass so much that I asked my vet about it. She told me that some dogs are just natural grazers and they enjoy it. He was on a good food, but still wanted grass

I slowly got him away from grass by giving him lettuce and things like that instead...........he really LOVES lettuce and don't really care much for grass anymore, I guess he got to "see" what salad is SUPPOSED to taste like and prefers that more

One issue with grazing that the vet warned me about..........Most parasite eggs stay in grass and soil for a long time. Heartworm meds DO NOT protect against every type of intestinal worm.......so do be careful where your doggie chews on grass!

Not sure if im overfeeding... guess i didnt know there was a limit. She used to eat puppy chow from the breeder but now I am giving her Purina one puppy.

She has been dewormed.

Recently she had a Giardia Vaccine... if that matters.
