ok well, some of you have helped me greatly in the past and i will also post a recent pic of my precious Toby

well, basically the title says it all

1 1/2 year old almost and STILL eating poo??

we tried the pineapple juice in his bowl, all that did was make him scarf it down faster and want even more

normally he goes when my dad and him go for walks in the morning, but sometimes hes outside alone, EVEN with his muzzle on he gets the poo inside his mouth... and well...eats it

please tell me WHAT else to do!!! this is a very nasty habit and i don't like him doing it, especially if he randomly LICKS your face if you give him a chance lol

Heres his pic

ill go to our local pet supply store this week and look for those products, thanks for all the positive feedback!!!
hes eating Puring One, the one year old stage food

and its normally 1 rather large bowl of it in the mornings after a walk with my dad
The best thing would be to either clean up as quickly as possible or to look at his diet and see whether you can give him some more nutrients or vitamns becuase that may be the reason that he is eating his poo.
Normally when he does have to poo, and i DO catch him trying to eat it i just grab the waterhose and spray it down to basically nothing, the problem is catching him do it.
You might want to try a different dog food. Purina is pretty high in grains (Corn, Oats) which doesn't digest very well. Basically, it just passes through and is still good to eat. Try a brand that has 3 meat ingredients in the top 4 listed ingredients.
Ok, are you suggesting we do the canned dog foods or just find a different dry food?

it shouldn't be hard at all to find a diff brand
we are currently using a Purina One, Lamb and Rice formula dry food...when you say we need more meat, what kind would you suggest if you could give me a few options
