Hello everyone, decided to join to the forum to get advice. I'm writing to see if anyone can help me with my issue my dog is having. When he poops, he eats it and we are trying to stop him from doing this. I know many of you have ran into this, what do you guys recommed? Any help would be appreciated.

I would pick it up before he eats it. I think there are some products you can put in their food that keep them from finding their poop so delicious, but I would just scoop it before he gets to it. It's a lot cheaper. :)

If you sprinkle some accent seasoning on his dog food. There is something in it that then makes their poo taste horrible to them! I had to do it with my cat because my dog would eat the cat poo!

"Accent" is MSG...the stuff many people claim to have given them headaches when it's been added to food.

I think I would need more than a post on a message board to give that to my dog.

I'd probably just pick it up as well. It's free and keeps your yard looking nice! It won't pile up with land mines all over the place :D

they sell treats you can give your dog specificaly for this problem. I've also heard that giving them pineapple with their dinner is supposed to help make their poop taste bad and pineapple isn't bad for them

I vouch for the pineapple. Despite nothing being wrong with her, Smalls is a poop eating fiend. We started putting a tablespoon of pineapple in her morning food (she's about 55 lbs) and voila! No more poop eating.

You put it on the food, not the poop.

I agree, pick it up!
