Zelda eats mud every time we go to the park! I don't know why, but there are these random mud puddles at every park around here, and there is no getting away from it!

Okay, maybe not every time, but sometimes, she will find one, or she knows where some of them are already, and she will sit there and eat the mud, just scarfing it down! When I tell her "NO", she ignores me, and when I go close enough, she does the boxer burn around the park, and runs by it grabbing mouth fulls of mud, same thing with mounds of cut grass!

This isn't normal mud, I dunno if it smelled like that before, or I read something about their puke will smell like poop after it settles, but the mud she puked up smells like raw sewage!

I think she is eating it because she is thirsty, or to settle her stomach or whatever.

Has anybody else experienced this?

How do I stop it?

Is it unhealthy for her?

yah, I give feed her Nutro Max large breed puppy (kibble). My dad said the same thing about the lack of minerals.

Usually I will just say her name, then when she looks up, I will run the other direction, and she starts chasing me (she loves that).

It is just soooo hard to get her tired when I have to keep her on the leash. That's why I will try to find a park with no people or dogs so she can run.

She eats everything, sticks (more like tree branches), grass, Mud, bugs, you name it she will have a taste!
