As most of you've probably figured out from my posts, we're excrutiatingly fussy about our dog food. We feed Innova and supplement with calf milk replacer when they're pups (and will during pregnancy and nursing as well), and our dogs supplement their diets with whatever they can catch out here in the country. They just like to nosh on grass. They may crave it partly because of the live nutrients it provides, but it's unprocessed and organic out here and doesn't have any chemicals on it, so I just laugh at them when they're grazing like cows.
I really wouldn't consider eating grass a problem unless there were chemicals involved. It's really not a bad idea, either, if your dog is primarily a creature of the great indoors, to grow a big pot of grass in a sunny room, just like you'd do for an indoor cat.
