    DefaultTabasco on cat's poop

    Somebody told me to put some Tabasco on cat's poop and then walk Cassie near them so she will eat them and this way she will stop eating them.

    Cassie finds the cat poop from the yard and eats them. When she does she comes to me scared because she knows I will be mad on her. She knows she's not allowed to eat them.

    I don't want her to get sick because of cat's poop. So is it ok to try the Tabasco method?

    She won't leave it even if you give her a steak.




    If dogs do not go to heaven, then I prefer to follow them where they go.

    If you go to the trouble of sprinkling tobasco on the cat poop, why don't you just pick it up & remove the problem? Cat poop is one thing, what if she eats something else random that is far worse? Bottom line if she can't be trusted with a firm "leave it" maybe put her on a long line in the yard so you can reel her in when she tries to go for it. I think focus on fixing the behaviour instead of masking the problem would be the best route to go.

    I can understand you putting it on to teach leave. Often they get it before we even know it is there so good thought putting something on it to make it disgusting.

    I put chilli powder on the legs of the table as Kass used to chew them even though she knew leave. Only did it once and she stopped.She also ate kitty poop. We don't have a cat, but if out by the time I realised she had some it was too late.

    Agreed, teach leave it and it will pay off more than in cat poop. That, and unless you tabasco each poop, the dog will be able to tell which poop has Tabasco and which does not. I have also known dog's that LIKE the taste of Tabasco!

    My resident crazy-dog ate the remnants of 12 jumbo jalapenos out of the trash - stems, top of the pepper, seeds and veins. I was horrified and worried about him...he LOVED it. They really do have iron stomachs and strange tastes.
