My dog has/had the same problem. Tried all the standard remedies and products without success. So, for THIS dog I now have a poop-free yard. The only thing that has worked for me is walking her in the woods because, for some reason, she poops and walks away there. Sometimes I think she is doing it to be a brat because if she goes after anything I don't want her to have she will keep going back as a catch-me game. So I may have inadvertently extended the poop-eating problem. Some dogs do this for a life time and it doesn't harm them, it is simply GROSS. One other thing, if she poops while on a leash walk I am always prepared to pull her away and even step on the leash to keep her away while I do the pick-up. Good Luck !!!!
