Hey there; Just signed up for this site and we need some suggestions. We have 2 yellow labs male and female..Dawson and Celeigh. Our male is eating feces and we have tried everything. Any suggestions
Welcome! Who's feces he is eating? There are many causes like he might not getting enough nutrition on his diet. If he is eating his or your girl's poop, add meat tenderized to give stool a bitter flavor.

the only time one of mine did that was when he was prescription food.
and you can add whatever you want to the food, nothing but picking it up immediately helps. kinda like the grass burns on the lawn from urine.
Teach "leave it" and pick it up.
He is eating the females' . We even tried peppermint in her food to try and discourage. We have tried all kinds of behavioural nothing is stopping it. ??? baffled
Thanks for your reply. We have only noticed this behaviour this winter. We usually pick up poop right away but with blizzards here this year some must have got buried under snow.
