Eating grass

I have a jrt Labrador mix but all of its character traits are that of a jrt. Mine is real active and runs around the yard when I am playing with her. She will run and suddenly stop and crouch down and snap at the grass. When I go toward her she will snap at the grass and take off running. Is this common for JRTs?

Eating grass
by: John

Sometimes dogs eat grass out of habit and it in fact it's pretty common. However, some dogs eat grass because it is a natural remedy for a gassy stomach and it helps them throw up. It seems like your dog does it out of habit/for the taste so there is nothing to worry about.
