How do I stop my dog from eating feces?
Although this is a pretty disgusting habit, it is a fairly normal behavior for some dogs, especially puppies. In many cases, this behavior will just go away as the puppy gets older. If your dog is partaking in this behavior, have him checked by a vet to make sure there is nothing medically wrong. In the mean time, it is important to keep the puppies area as clean as possible.
Some things you might try are Forbid which you can get from your veterinarian. We have also heard about adding pineapple to your dog’s diet. (If you have multiple dogs, everyone goes on pineapple.) If you have taught the “Leave It” command, this would be a great opportunity to use it.
Bottom line, keep the yard or exercise area cleaned up!
