Default Get out of my space!

I have a super sweet black German Shepherd, she's nearly 3 years old. She is a wonderful dog but she bugs me with constantly sticking her rather large nose in my face. The major problem I have with this is that she likes to eat poop (working hard on this) and her mouth disgusts me. If I start petting her she immediately gets right up to my face and will NOT move. I push her away, she comes right back. Tell her no, she doesn't listen. I say go lay down, she sticks her nose in my eye. I've had her for almost a year and she has always been pushy like this. Is there a way I can teach her to GO lay down? And stop sticking her nose in my face? Thank you

Julie

I have no advice for the space issue, but i got my girl out of the poop eating phase by giving her a small amount of pineapple daily.

I should also mention that she sticks her Nose in other places she shouldn't...like the baby's diaper, the trash can, the toilet bowl, dirty laundry, the COUNTERS! Grr that gets me angry when she steals food from the counter...and boy is she sneaky too.

Something about nutrients that the dog isn't getting enough of. My boss recommended it to me. I give Koda one slice every other day.

Hmm ok well I'll try it but I did take her to the vet already for the issue and he said it wasn't due to nutrition. So we have just been more careful about picking up poop constantly. If there is no poop to eat, well, problem solved lol

Sometimes people will train a dog to NOT do something by putting the bad behavior on cue. Then, the dog stops offering the behavior (apparently- I've never used this method) because it wasn't cued. So there's that...

...And then, maybe your girl just like smelling things. Have You considered doing K9 Nosework classes with her? Give her nose a job. Personally I think this is a great idea.

But again- if I had a dog that consistently and often repeated a behavior I didn't like, I might just give the first option a try to see if it really works or not. Try putting it on cue.
