These are all myths. Dogs eat poop because they smell nutrients in it. You MIGHT say poor diet because all kibble contains a lot of plant matter and the stools usually contain that plant matter. When I switched my dogs to a raw diet, they stopped eating their own but will still eat kibble fed dogs poop. They will also eat deer poop, rabbit poop and other unknown kinds found around our property.I know that dogs eat poo for a number of reasons. Poor diet, bad breeder, mother dog did it.
Chowder is absolutely correct about the puppy pads. Time to get rid of those.I have been watching her closely, and I have been cleaning up relentlessly (we use puppy pads because we both work) nothing I do seems to deter her nasty habit... Any advice? I'm going crazy here!
