|I have a 7 month old pit bull. She isnt destructive in the house but when she plays with her doggie friends she will go off to the side and eat (i do mean eat, not just chew) bark off a tree, tree limbs, and/or mulch. I will walk over to her and she will run away. She will then go back to the tree asap or go eat something else. I am trying to teach her "let it go" but that doesnt work when she is far away. I have tried the bitter apple stuff to no avail. It bothers me because sometimes she throws up wood when we get inside later on. She thinks its a game of keep away when I try to get it out of her mouth. She is beating me on this problem. I tried going up to trees and letting her start to eat and than I say No.
Is there something more I can do? Or is it just a stage? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
