I don't want to have to deal with this the rest of their lives. I have tried Deter, pumpkin and pineapple juice. Is it safe to try meat tenderizer? If so, how do I use it?

They are so cute but this poo eating business simply has to stop!

Thanks for any replies.

My yorkie puppy eats Ringo's poop. It's disgusting and she is so prissy otherwise. Doesn't like the snow, wet ground, getting dirty . . yet will chow down if she finds some outside. Then she wants to lick your face! I'm hoping it's a puppy thing . . . . .

I know it's GROSS Had a Bloodhound & she LOVED doing that.Had another dog as a kid, that only liked them frozen (fudgesicles my Dad called them).Not much of anything you can do but pick up the yard every time, whom ever takes a poop.

They smell the 'food' that was eaten and expelled and do not smell it as anything else. Simply talk to your vet about it as this is not very uncommon, puppy or full grown dogs.

Picking it up each and every time is the only sure fire way to stop it. I have four dogs and it's totally doable. Besides, I don't want them stepping in it, or the grandkids, or myself and tracking it back into my house.

Yikes. Where do your dogs defecate? Mine are trained to go in one spot....and it is picked up immediately with a pooper scooper and placed in a lined container with a lid on. Makes it difficult to eat if it isn't around. I have heard of dogs eating out of the cat box, but I tell you....I wouldn't own a dog that had this wonderful trait.

Gross as it is, as a previous poster stated - this is quite common for dogs.
