    so I’ve literally tried to search everywhere if dogs are usually obsessed with basil and have found nothing on it except that it is good for them and not toxic.

    However, since my pup has found the basil plant at the back of our garden he has gone coo coo banana”s over it and I don’t know why. I literally let him out to pee and he ran straight towards it and spent a good 5 minutes trying to eat it. I had to bring out his food bowl just so he could come back.

    Might have to take out the basil plant. But was just wondering if anyone else’s dogs were obsessed with basil and if there is by any chance anything wrong with them eating it.

    How strange! My guinea pigs love basil but i haven't got a basil plant and it's not something my dogs have tried.

    Hopefully someone on here will know if it's ok - have you tried turning to google for the answer there?

    Would be a pity to pull up your plant!
