Dog owners

If your dog eats or ate their own poo, how do or did you deter them from it? Besides picking it up immediately? I would rather not go out in the ice/snow at 4am to pick up poo.

I've read green beans, canned pumpkin, or meat tenderizer added to the food can help. She is eating a decent kibble - Fromm's whitefish and potato. Any suggestions?

it's seems like someplace I read bananas or some other food high in potassium might help. No clue where or why

we tried numerous things with charlie, and nothing stopped him. he preferred it fresh from the tap, though, turning his body to get it as it exited. Click here to enlarge lol

the only thing that "helped" was letting him outside while we watched (even in a fenced yard) and yelling at him as he went for it. and calling him in immediately. he did go after the old stuff sometimes, and we just had to watch him the same and yell.

this is one of those times when cats trump dogs. no self respecting cat would eat poo. lol

Petition the White House to Adopt the Chartreuse Awareness Ribbon for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse.

"While there are many colors for various causes, (for example, Child Abuse and Autism both share the same color ribbon) there is no nationally recognized ribbon in chartreuse. Child sexual abuse affects so many children and yet prevention organizations struggle to receive the funding they need to raise awareness and educate people on all the simple ways we can empower our children, families, and communities against abuse."

It's not a feeling, it's a knowing.

I'll buck the trend, I don't think her kids are all that in the cute department. not all kids are cute. they have other attributes that make up for that, but look at tweedle's aiden, that is a cute kid. and your kids mel, those are adorable kids. Her's are average. I wouldn't take a second look passing her on the street.

Nothing worked for my dog except keeping the poop cleaned up. The vet said it was behavioral and didn't have any treatment he would recommend.

Never experienced this with my dig, but maybe try to speak or show him you are mad whenever he does it? Dogs can understand..
We hope it gets better for you soon | Newport Coast
