Re: Pup Eating Poo

This is something some dogs do.

My puppy did this too. I used FORBID in his food for a few days & he stopped. Consult your local vet for FORBID.

Re: Pup Eating Poo

He likes the taste of it? clean it up as soon as he does it and the problem solves itself. It's very common, search here for eating poop. There was another thread on it a few days ago.

Re: Pup Eating Poo

That's just what puppies do. What are you feeding your pup? Sometimes a diet change to higher quality food can make a difference. Other than that, take your pup out on leash so as soon as he's done pooping, you can immediately dash off with him and have a game to reward pooping outside, then scoop the poop up as soon as you have a moment. If your pup is never given the chance to eat poop, that behavior cannot become a habit. Always take him out on leash so you can direct him away from his poop!

Re: Pup Eating Poo

We just got him and are switching him over slowly to his new food... we've had him on a leash to go out, but I let him off to play with the others... and that's when he did it. I got to him right away, but he really wanted to keep eating it. I was wondering why his breath smelled like poo... uggghhh! I'm reading the nutrition posts here on the site now.
