I have not tried the meat tenderizer but when pineapple (fresh or unsweetened) is on sale I stock up. I chop fresh pineapple into small chunks and keep it in a freezer bag. They love it frozen or fresh. Every few days they each get a pineapple chunk. Totally manages the poo eating. Of course, I am out there in the yard picking it up once or twice a day, too. It only took one time for me to take this seriously when Leo walked into the house and threw up a hugh pile of s***t.

I use pumpkin for diaherria; have never heard of it as a cure for poo-eating. But pure pumpkin is expensive and to manage poo eating, you have to have a regular system. I think there's a lot of salt in meat tenderizer so again, don't know if its a good idea to use it on a regular basis.....

I give my dog a section of beef neckbone about once a week. He works on it diligently until every remnant of meat is gone from it, then he will bury it to "season".

Anyway, this is germane to the topic because he will always resist the urge to, uh, phagia the copro if there is something more interesting on hand like a raw beef bone.

A folk myth around here is to add tomato jice to their food. I have had several very elderly ladies tell me that. Never tried it so don't know if it works. DrsFoster&Smith sell something for that, but it didn't work for my dogs.

My vet told me there is a commercial product you can buy at the pet store. You sprinkle it on their food and it makes the poop taste bad.

I AM feeding them quality food. I think it has to do with housebreaking our recent rescue dog. She still occasionally poops in the house and even though I don't punish her, I have a feeling she senses my frustration so her response is to get rid of the evidence.

My older dog has not eaten poop in years but she recently started again. I suspect she's copying her friend's behavior.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

I suspect you are humanizing your dog's behavior. Dogs are dogs and eat things they think tastes good. Your older dog probably finds this new rescue's poop to be a delicacy. Don't over think it. Just find a solution.

oh trust me .... being well or mal-nourished has NOT a thing to do with poop eating......

i have heard of the pineapple thing.... had not heard of the meat tenderizer, but sounds like it would be worth a shot.....

southernbelle .... 40 or so years ago, when our cocker was snacking from the kitty litter box, the vet recommended my mother feed her (the dog) tomatoes or tomato sauce.....

Got the tip from a friend who got it from our vet, it works. I was shocked. Just sprinkle a bit of that over each of their food dishes each time you feed. May take a week or two to stop it, but it will. Our GSD was horrible about that until we tried this and it worked great.
wow, I will have to try this. My beagle is terrible about it. ack!

We use pineapple also and it definitely helps. Also picking it up before they have a chance to eat it and startling them when they try.
