Poop...we have 4 poop shooters. 2 in the 12 year range and a pair of 9 month old sisters. Both of the youngsters have this nasty habit...but one of them will eat right from the factory, so to speak. We obviously can't be outside with them costantly to try and catch them in the act. We have our entire 5 acres fenced so going out and picking up the land mines isn't real practical neither.

I've read that when dogs do this it's usually a vitamin deficiency in their diet or could be pancreatic problems. I don't know what to do to combat it but I'm sure the vet can help you.

Nothing better than when the dog "eats" then comes in the house and gives you a big lick on the face...

we had the same problems with my labs. we fed ours canned pumpkin. after its digested it leaves a foul odor in the poop and they wont eat it again. another idea is to feed them pineapple or pineapple juice. or you could add some msg to the dog food. thats just some of the things we did to break ours. i did go out in the backyard and sabotage some of the poop with hot sauce they really didnt appreciate that lol.

When I first started reading this thread I was offended because I thought y'all were covertly talking about my cooking; but when you said the dogs would eat it I knew it wasn't about that.

got the same issue here, except for rabbit pellets.  Bella is on the lease due to HOA restrictions, so we've got her pretty well trained with the "LEAVE IT" command. but she sneaks a few in every chance she gets...

don't know if I can feed the wild rabbits,  host sauce thing might help tho'
