Eww dont eat that!
 
My new addition is eating poop. I cant stop him from doing it either, my yard is clean but when i take him for runs he will eat whatever poop he can find, like catch a poo in mid drop from his k9 sister. He is on a great diet though..none of the other dogs do this on the diet they are on. Any suggestions? i have heard that raw may be the answer.

Though people say it's because there is a nutritional lack and that's why dogs do this...

In my circumstances and for all the people I know in situation their dogs do it for one reason..........

It tastes YUMMY DELICIOUS!!! The best! Can't be beat!! Whether warm and moist or frozen poopsicles... just the best. :)

The only way to prevent is management (like you cleaning your yard) and teaching a good 'leave it'.

LOL we do leave it and he looks at my like "why you make me drop my poop" LOL
Hes a sneaky little one though, as i said before he will eat that stuff in a mid air drop which is disgusting!

Raina was into eating poop, but she would only eat her own or the cat's. I solved it by following her around the yard and scooping immediately. As for the cat I scan the yard in the morning before I let Raina out.The cat always uses the base of the same tree which makes it easy. My vet suggested hot sauce on the poop and leave it there but considering she still chewed the arm off a lawn chair that I had slathered in hot sauce I didn't see any reason to try it with other "items". As she got older it got easier. She now walks away from her poop but in a few minutes she will revisit the spot to see if I picked it up yet - of course I have by that time.

The fact she re visits the spot made me actually laugh out loud. The yard gets a great cleaning everytime i let the dogs out. I wonder if i can feed the other dogs something naturally gross so tyson will not be interested? Tyson is like the Tom Cruise in mission impossible type of poo eater..i swear if he had the equipment i would find him shimmying down a rope to get to that one untouchble poop.

Some have suggested putting pineapple in their food because it supposedly tastes bad after digestion. I tried it once. She ate everything in the bowl except the pineapple - I think she thought it tasted bad even before digesting!

Thor would eat cat poop when he was a puppy, couldn't stop him from doing it, but he's outgrown it now, he stopped before his first bday. Good luck with them kitty snacks...

Our boy was a poo connoisseur. Patience and diligence!

This is what we did (In order of importance):

1) clean up!
2) leave it training
3) hot sauce

Keep a bottle of hot sauce outside, and when they are inside clean up everything and bait one of the piles with a couple drops. Don't use something that will hurt them, just be off putting and smells unenjoyable. If nothing else it will slow them down and make them think about it while you run up treats in hand for rewarding them with a leave it.

Drago now smells poo and might take a lick if we do not tell him leave it in time, but he is mostly rehabilitated/
