Abstract: Very little is known about grass-eating behaviour or its origin in the domestic dog, 'Canis familiaris'. Grass eating is observed in both wolves and dogs, suggesting that the behaviour was preserved through domestication and is innate. The nursing mother may also influence grass-eating behaviour in her puppies. The current study investigated the influences of the mother, and puppy age, on grass eating in 5- to 7-week-old puppies.
