    that is very typical puppy behavior and he's probably teething, too. any time you see him pick something up that you don't want him to have, exchange the item for something that he's allowed. you will simply have to be vigilant as puppies will not only chew but will swallow things like socks, etc., which can lead to a blockage which can lead to a full blown emergency. when you are not home, under no circumstances should you be leaving him loose in the house. there are so many things, electrical cords being just one, that a puppy can chew and get seriously injured. he needs to be crated when you aren't there. you can give him a kong stuffed with peanut butter and frozen, it will keep him busy long enough to tire him out and he'll nap. at 6 months, he can be left for a few hours but if he isn't crate trained yet, you will have to do that first.

        Normal puppy behavior... no way of knowing how long it will last...some dogs will only go through a short stage of a few weeks but it can last several months and some dogs are that way for life. Supervision, keeping things picked up, confining when can't be supervised, training, mental and physical stimulation. Eating grass is also normal.. Many dogs do it seasonally, some do it as long as there is won't hurt them and doesn't mean they are hungry or lacking anything.
