    I read that dogs eat grass where others have pee'd because it contains enzymes. When mine have a grass eating fad they always eat it from the dogs side of the garden, even though I give them access to my side where the grass is nice and fresh. :rolleyes:

    Could be he needs some added enzymes which you can get by buying pigs pancreas if he's raw fed or dried enzyme powder for dogs on line - just google. ;) Other than that he could just like it - apparently some people drink pee, supposedly good for you - yuk!!
