Okay, so we tried the Adolf's and it worked for about a month or one bottle. Now Cobi won't touch poo, for some reason, Casie showed him how wonderful it tasted. Now Casie, is eating his again. I am simply grossed out by the whole idea. The vet thought that because Casie came from a breeder who had 24 dogs, perhaps he wasn't segregated when he was a pup, and they just did this. But whatever, NOT MY DOG! So I need a plan B, maybe C and possibly D . There is an envelope of powder at the vets..for some reason the name escapes me, that we are going to try, and the breeders in our area swear by it...
and if that doesn't work...then what? HELP, no more beagle baby kisses till he quits this new trick.

We feed ours dried treats called pansen in German. This is cooked and dried stomach from beef. They smell strange in themselves but if the dog gets them regularly they stop eating poo. You can buy them at a pet store, either by the kilo or in bags of different sizes. I believe a cow has a large and several smaller stomachs, Pansen is the larger one. A dog eats poo when it is lacking some ingredient. In the wild they kill and eat the stomach first.

Someone recently suggested Banana's to me. Haven't tried yet. Charlie is still a closet poo eater. I just watch and pickup before he can scarf down.

I have heard that feeding your dog tomatoes or pineapple will help.

Ben isn't a dog poo eater (all bets are off if it is cat poo or rabbit poo though) but he still enjoys the occasional piece of tomato or pineapple.

Mine LOVE pinapple. It worked for deterring poo eating for a couple days. I think it is more force of habit with Charlie. Thats why I pick it up as he watches and tell him NO if he tries to inch closer.

OH No, no, no....tomatoes are suppose to be bad for dogs like chocolate, raisins, etc. At least that's what I read in a book that I have. I also found it on this list,

One way to reduce stool eating behavior by your dog is to add a small amount of MSG (monosodium glutamate) to his food. This will give your dog's feces an unpleasant taste which will reduce stool eating behavior. By doing this repetitively, your dog will learn to associate his stool with a bad taste. Hope this helps. Here is the site.

I have been told (again and again) that sprinkling Adolfs Meat Tenderizer on their food makes their poo taste bad. <span style="font-style: italic">Yes, we are all thinking the same thing.</span>

Ripe tomatoes are actually fine for your dog to eat b/c atropine is neutralized as the tomato ripens. Green tomatoes and tomato plants should be avoided.

I used a mesh muzzle on Toby for a while. It had just become a habit for him and he only ate it when it was fresh. The muzzle seem to break the habit - I just put it on him when he went outside.

Well, Adolf's about 90% MSG...and that worked for one...the oldest, who only picked up the disgusting habit while watching Casie eat something that HE wasn't eating. Now Cobi, is like the dog that only eats fresh...so maybe a muzzle which I have thought of..but don't like the idea is going to be the trick. We do have some powder stuff from the vet...we'll try that...for a week and see what happens. Both of my dogs love Pineapple and bananas so that might be an answer.

The muzzle took care of the Toby's habit pretty fast. He figured out pretty quickly that he only had to wear it when he was running free outside (he never had to wear it inside or on leash walks) and he seemed to put two and two together pretty fast! Also, I just had him at the time and he always pooped on schedule, so he didn't have to wear it on non-poop outings - I think that helped him make the connection. If yours poop on schedule I think that wearing it only on poop outings help make that connection faster!

Can you pick up a mesh muzzle at common pet stores like petsmart??
JoJo does this ALL the time and it's absolutely gross. It's definitely deterred me from getting very snuggly with her.
If we miss a piece while picking it up in the backyard, she finds it, hides and eats it.
If anything is left in the grass, she eats the grass to get the poo, then throws up the grass after she gets inside.

That's exactly what I used - a mesh muzzle from PetSmart! Toby eventually figured out how to get the thing off, but it occupied/deterred him long enough to break the habit.
