|RugerRoni||I think everyone else covered this, but pick up the poo right after he does his business. If you aren't able to catch him in time (person I know had a dog that "stealth-poo'd" and would immediately turn around and eat it), you can feed canned pumpkin which makes the poo taste even worse than it already should and discourages your dog from eating it.|

crate train him. take your dog out often. if you're watching your pup
you can stop him from eating things.

Ohh, I was happy to just crate them but I was told crating them when I was not around will cause behavioural Issues later and so I let them in a small corridor and got child gates for him not to escape and Its almost Like a pen.
I am cleaning it as soon as he spoils and the slightest chance of sniffing around I take him out, I also take him out regularly.... he pees as soon I take him out every time.. so he knows If he goes out he needs to pee... and When I am home he never spoils in the pen... but I am not at home he does spoil in pen.... SO you are saying keep him crated when I am not at home... he does hold for 4 hrs atleast in the crate but when he is in his pen he just goes for it.

I cleaned up the poop right away and if he went back to sniff it, said NO. When he stopped, he got a treat instead of poop. Golden!
Watch out for rocks too! If they are walking on a leash and try to pick up rocks, correct them with a tug and verbal. If they have it in their mouth, stop and fish it out with your finger. They hate this and will associate eating rocks with your finger down their throat.

Forget the pen, you are backtraining and ruining the crate training plus having messes to clean up.
My puppies are crated for MONTHS so it gives them the best chance to learn to be housebroken.
I generally only crate when I am not home, and all night.
When I am home, I have baby gates and closed doors to keep them IN the same room with me. And then it's MY job to pay attention!!! That way I catch them when they start to squat and I can correct PLUS I can catch when they go to the door and go out with them.
Frankly, I go out with them every hour or so. Can't have enough opportunities available for them to do the RIGHT thing outside and earn praise. Rather then the WRONG thing in the house and get a correction from a furious mom cause I have to clean the carpet AGAIN!
Eating poo is extremely common for GSD's. They think it tastes yummy delicious, it's right there, who wouldn't eat it. ACK! The best way to prevent is management. Clean up the yard so they can't eat it there. Prevent it in the house so they can't eat it there!

|Sergeantsays||Take a look at the food you are feeding him, if it is corn based (second or third ingredient) than you might want to consider changing his food to something without corn. Dogs eat their poo when their food is undigested, i.e. corn. Plus you need to clean it up immediately.|

|JakodaCD OA||management, it's quite simple, when he potties, pick it up immediately, don't give him the chance to eat it..|

My pup eats everything including his own poo
Hi GSD experts,
I need your advice,
My 10 week old GSD eats everything he comes across including his own poo. He does not poo at regular times i feed him strictly at regular times. He normally poos like thrice a day. Morning walk then evening and night walk. But today he spoiled like 4 times already.
I was house training him with a crate training and he was fine when i pit him in crate he calls when he needs to go. But today i have him in a pen and he spoiled thrice already. He id not interested in chew toys, kongs or rope balls. The toy has to move for him to be interested.
How do i fix the issue?
