A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

My 5 month old has this habit of eating poop from the backyard. I clean it up on a regular basis although some I just miss because I don't see it. I have gone online to see if there are any tricks to stopping him, but thought I would get it right from the source. Does anyone have an idea of why and how to stop him from eating it. (He eats regularly, so don't worry about that)

There is a product called "Forbid". You sprinkle the powder on the food for a few days and it will typically stop the bad behavior. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Thanks Cal's mom, guess I kind of needed to hear that my dog wasn't the only one doing it... :)

I noticed Cal (year old) eating poop after the snow melted, when I would say no he looked at me like I had five heads and started running around like it was a game.  It slowly stopped and I haven't seen it yet.  Or maybe it's more preoccupied with diggin holes in the yard! :)

Thanks Bruce, have definatley kicked up the supervision (which is a pain sometimes) have also starting yelling LEAVE IT!! Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, the power of the poop I suppose, YUCK!!

Ginger always wants to help me clean out our cats litter boxes.  I understand thats common with dogs.  BAD breath.  I bought a Bianca mouth spray to use when I catch her.  I caught her once and yelled "NO" at her.  Then a shot of Bianca.  Nothing since, so maybe she learned.

Can't say the same thing about deer poop, though.  We have LOTS of deer around, so there is multitudes of piles all over.  Just about every dog in the neighborhood LOVES deer poop.  Don't know why.  Its like popcorn.

I have no ideas on how to stop him, but would only suggest heavy supervision in the yard for awhile, a few well placed "NO's" , and some maturing.

Good luck...
