I agree w/Zeus, but I would add - teach him the "leave it" command. It is taking me quite a while with my dog, Kodee. I work with him occassionally during training sessions on this, but I also am very consistent in using it whenever applicable in everyday life - if we are on a walk, and he sniffs something, before even picks it up, I say "leave it", and give a quick pop on his leash (he just wears a flat leather collar). Same thing at home, only without the leash, normally. He starts getting interested in a paper towel on the floor - "leave it!". Even though i've done very little "formal" training on this command, he is finally starting to consistently listen to me the majority of the time.Originally Posted By: ZeusGSDUnfortunately supervision and picking up poop immediately is the only way to stop this. Especially if he is young, everything goes in the mouth. Puppies are worse than toddlers with this.
