Does anyone know what we can do to stop our puppy from eating our other labs poop, he just started this a couple days ago. He's 7 months old and I do not want this to become a nasty habit. Hoping someone on here has tried and true things that they did to curb this.
clean it up. many dogs do this and the best way to try and break the habit is to clean up so they do not the opprotunity. Also work on leave it (a solid leave it) but this requires supervision.
There is no other sure fire way. there are things they say you can feed the dog to make the poop taste but but really, if a dog is eating poop how can you make it taste bad LOL! you can try them if you want. Some say to pour cayanne pepper on teh poop and let the dog eat but - eww.

we clean up as soon as we can but he's taken up the habit of looking where we are going to clean up and then making a mad dash to eat it, lol. Our 4 year old lab did this for sooooo long and nothing seemed to work. She's finally stopped and now it's this one, the other lab ate her own, this one is eating our other dogs poop
