If this was my girl, I would pick up the poo immediately. Since ours poo's on leashed walks, that would solve at least the access problem!

I would try to teach him "Leave it!" command. ( Or "Pfui!" -phooey!)
And scoop it up, so he doesn't get it the next time he's out.

Either pick it up immediately or take him out on a leash (this can take weeks, no joke) and immediately remove him from the potty area once he's done his business. I had to put a flexi on my pup before I could let him out in the yard because he'd poop and immediately turn around to eat it. With the flexi, he'd have the room to go potty but as soon as he was done, I was calling him back in and because he had the leash on, he didn't have a choice. Havent had a poop eating incident in months. he's just over 6 months old now.

where is your dog eating his poop, on walks, in the yard? if he's
eating his poop on walks why can't you pull him away from it
and start teaching "leave it" or "no" or something? if he's eating
poop that's in the yard clean up immediately after him. you're close
to deserving a "duh" but i'll spare you this time. lol.
