Last night I started doing some training with Baxter and this afternoon he does it on cue! He has always picked this stuff up fast.
He learned shake and roll over
I am amazed at what he will do for a cheerio..LOL

We also started pumpkin today for his Coprophagia (poo eating :)) He thought that was THE best treat EVER!
I am giving him a teaspoon once a day. And will increase to 2 teaspoons if needed. Please pray this works for us.

Add two to four tablespoons of canned pumpkin to the food bowl each day. Pumpkin apparently tastes good in food, but repugnant when expelled in excrement

I heard it from a few people and then looked it up online. **crossing my fingers**

We tried the forbid, didnt work.
Another option is meat tenderizer, which we will try if the pumpkin doesnt work. (hoping it does tho)

Well it was NOT easy..LOL
I had him go into the sit position, then lay down.
I made a circle gesture with my hand and maually rolled him over.
Praised praised praised good boy and a cheerio.

Manually rolling him over was not easy. He was really stiff and excited, he knew i had treats.
even if i rolled him over i made the circle motion and still praised and gave him a cheerio.

i am sure you already know this, but it is something i learned with Baxter.
Dont have the treat in your hand. put it behind you or on your side.
If I had the treat in my hand he absolutely would not pay attention to anything but the hand the treat was in.

Aha! Cheerios! We do that too. Can you say Cheerios breath? It's better than stinky dog breath! Plus I can leave a few under the pillows and cushions and behind their crate or wherever and then have them go on a big search. If they miss one or two, no biggie, since they don't rot..
