    Okay @jillh10 I have a suggestion.... depending on how many rocks you have.

    I too, am having a problem with Jesse eating rocks and dirt. I see it in her and twice I have woken up to a pile of rock vomit in her bed. Luckily our gravel is quite small, but the same as you I don't know why she is eating them!

    Yuna will eat and swallow anything and everything. She scares me. So I was talking to @Lindathedogsmaid and she suggested using clove oil on things you don't want her to chew on. So my question is, how many rocks do you have in the yard? Is it like mine, where the whole backyard is graveled or do you just have areas with gravel/rocks? I was thinking maybe you could put clove oil in a spray bottle with water and spray the area. You must also put one drop of the oil on the lips of the dog so they learn to hate it. This is something linda suggests for my problem with Yuna, because I would really like to get her a nice durable bed. Right now she has none because she will eat it up and swallow it. Remember the photos? I tried giving her a blanket last week when we got that cold spell and found it shredded the next morning! As for Jesse's facination with the gravel I am not too worried because our gravel is small.... but if it was larger I would be concerned.

    I have an area of rocks but Truman seems to eat them from one section only so maybe I will try spraying them with the clove oil and water mixture. My gravel is not too big but Truman sounds almost like Yuna in that he eats EVERYTHING - rocks, towels, bird poop, feathers, leaves - whatever he can get his mouth on! I would like to try to curb this undesirable behavior starting with rocks! Thanks for the suggestion. Have you tried it yet? Did it work?

    What about vinegar? Can you spray the rocks with that? Or if it's not too tacky, maybe fencing the area off with decorative fencing.

    I tried it years ago. She actually gave me some when we were in Washington (back in '02) and I accidently put the oil all over the RV, (Sarah was chewing my walls) toward the baseboards and then our house smelled like cloves for months. Well, our RV, not our house. But that was our house when we traveled! Yes, it worked. I was thinking of water+spray bottle just to spread it better.

    We have a resident rabbit that loves when Lari puts her annuals in each spring... bunny buffet!
    We fixed that by mixing up tobasco with water in a spray bottle and sprayed the flower beds. Might just work unless he is like @KMARINO 's weirdo.. LOL
