Why does my dog eat poop?
The dog may have an illness that makes him ravenous. Not the case with my dog—according to my vet. So what gives? Females will eat poop to clean the nest, but that’s not the case with my dog who is definitely a male. I’m at a lost. So, I’m going to take this advise and see if it works.
- Call him to you.
- If he comes, give him a treat.
- If he doesn’t, let him know in a stern voice that you don’t approve. If he is off-leashing, leash him to show him that he has lost his privilege.
By the way the name for this yukky habit is Coprophagia.
