Last summer i tried to take her to the beach. She knows how to walk on a leash but when shes on sand, she wont move. She stands still and just eats the sand. :smilie_tischkante: She wont walk along the beach, all she is interested in is eating sand. I tried taking her the other day and she did the same thing. Do most malts do this?

I bring Leila to the beach only on bath day, and she gets absolutely COVERED in sand. She rubs her face in it and eats a TON. No matter how much I try to distract her, that's her #1 priority. So far, no health consequences. She poops out a bunch of sand later that night, but after a nice warm bath to get the rest out of her face/hair, she's as good as new.

My babies eat some sand, but they looove the beach so much they race down the beach most of the time. They only eat sand when they get impatient when we stop for something. Yes, their poo comes out sandy the next day. I don't know why it doesn't upset their stomach. Nothing is better than the happiness on their face at the beach!!! :wub:

LOL How funny. No sand here, but I'm sure Cosy would eat some too if she was there.
