    DefaultPuppy and eating - VERY wild - Help please

    My pup is VERY wild when feeding time comes and gulps it down VERY fast. I don't know how she tastes it. I just posted about her but no one has replied. She also eats her feces and my other dog's feces. Could she be starving or lacking something?

    Nah, she's just a Lab. My Frankie did that too. I now put a big Nylabone in the middle of dish so he has to eat around it. It worked. He also eats poop. Another Lab thing. :-\

    My Saska still eats her dinner like there is no tomorrow, I was also advised to put a toy in her feeding bowl such as a bone or Tennis ball it seems to work.
    I was also told to put pineapple ??? ??? in the dogs food to stop the dog eating there own poo, it seems to work with some dogs. Good Luck

    Canned Pineapple, Just checked My dog magazine, one spoonfull mixed with their food, it is probably worth a try I keep being told about it by several different people, also I have a dog magazine every month and it is mentioned in there. several Months running, Does not work for all dogs but anything is worth a try. Good luck.

    The eating poop thing actually has a name called coprophagia or something like that. Luckily, I haven't personally had an issue with it. I think there is some product you can buy and put in their food that makes the poop taste bad and causes the dog not to eat it anymore.

    Eating Poo is natural. Slowing down there eating is pretty simple also, my first suggestion would be to feed them out of a Kong. Secondly would be putting something inedible in their bowl as others have mentioned.
    I work on the theory that if you can train a killer whale to launch itself out of a swimming pool, roll on its side and urinate into a small plastic cup, given only a whistle and a bucket of fish, without a choke chain, then you don’t need those confrontational techniques with dogs. -Dr. Dodman
