Poop eating is a mindblower....but all 3 of my GSDs over the decades have had this fascination with eating their crap as pups......always short lived...but yet I clearly remember it. They all grew out of it....however the EPI shepherd I had was toughest to break...makes sense I guess.

I said "leave it" with my newest girl and she seemed to understand after a short bit..now it never needs to be said.

I don't think you are messing up at all...dogs live in the here and now..what happened 5 seconds ago is history....correction and reward needs to be immediate.
