Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So kobe is 23 months old, my problem with him is he keeps eating the pot soil from my plants that i have inside my home. No matter how many times i tell him no he goes and eats some. He's a very good boy and doesn't get into trouble but is it safe for him to eat the soil?

depends on the soil you have does it come with fertilizer and all in it? i would say that's not safe. eating potted soil is much worse then just dirt in the back yard that is not treated.
our first summer with S&J i learned i could not have potted plants on the deck at ground level, i came down one morning and my plants were all over the back yard, replanted, replaced in the back yard...
for my house plants they are all on counters or tall plant stands and they seem to leave those alone.
can you move the plants to a safe place, a room with a door?

Yup - moving them out of reach is a good idea - our kitty, one hot summer, kept drinking the water in the plants saucers (stupid cat will not drink plain water - I have to doctor it ). She ended up with cluster seizures, most likely from the electrolite imbalance from all the minerals in the fertilizer. I dump all my saucers now, even in hot weather, no more seizures since then (4 years ago).

A lot of plant soil has cocoa mulch (read: chocolate!) which is VERY appealing and very bad for the dogs.  Check your list of ingredients and see if that's the problem.

Check this Google Search to get an idea of how common it is.

I'm honestly really surprised that no one has had any comment on this .... it would seem unusual - at least it did to me when I first found out.
