Is there anyway to teach your dog that eating sticks is bad?

Here`s another great article:

I have a 2 year old dachshund, so of course he can be super stubborn. He likes to chase after sticks (still hasn't mastered the art of 'fetch') and usually just chews on it for a second and then I take it away (giving a treat in exchange). We don't do that often, just sometimes.

However, he has some weird habit – whenever 2 or more of his friends is outside with him, he starts grabbing small sticks and going to town on them. Chomping on them and swallowing. He knows 'leave it' but ~~suddenly forgets~~ when I use the command in relation to him eating sticks. He plays keep away when I try to grab the stick from his mouth, but will eventually stop if I use a stern enough voice. He doesn't do this when we're alone outside, only when he has 2+ of his friends around. I have no idea why.

I don't mind if he like, carries a branch or stick around but I don't want him eating them and hurting his insides or getting an obstruction. Whenever he winds up sneaking a couple of chunks, he wakes up at 3am to barf them out.

When I see him eating them and he refuses the 'leave it' command, should I just pick him up and take him away from the issue?

ETA: *any way, not 'anyway'. Oops.
