My dog used to do that. We taught the command "leave it" and "take it"...using treats. I would put the treat either in my open hand or on the floor near the dog and say "leave it". If the dog tried to get the food, I would either close my hand, or simply block the food. Then "take it" (in an upbeat happy voice) and allow the dog to get the treat.

I can say "leave it", to anything outside and he won't touch it. I use that command on walks if we see a squirrel, a cat, candy wrappers....or poop!

Good luck!
I laughed so hard when I saw the stool guard. This is going to be an adventure!

Dazzle is Ok with that as he is a very patient guy. He says if Lanies mom doesn't want her eating poop on the date she can come over for breakfast as he has been getting some of the malt o meal and green tripe when I make it for Phoenix and that is almost as good at least the smell is and the good thing is it doesn't make moms mad when you eat it as a matter of fact they serve it right in your bowl! go figure you get scolded for eating poop at the park then they serve you something that smells like it!

Doesn't this mean you are not feeding your dog properly?

Not necessarily. Some dogs do it due to anxiety or stress. There's also a condition called Pica that causes them to want to eat everything. Sometimes I think my Corgi has a mild case of it. He's gotten better but he still loves trying to eat sticks, rocks, dirt.......the list goes on.
