Default How do you stop them from eating poo?

LOL I know it's gross... but Belle keeps doing it. How can I get her to stop? she usually does it at night... she's a bad girl at night and ALWAYS goes in the house but she has been making progress and doesn't go in the house during the day anymore.... so baby steps here.

but anyway what can I do to stop her from eating it? I know vets can give you something to put in their food but she doesn't go to the vet until January so until then is there anything I can do?

Zoe is well trained on the "leave it" command. Is your doggie trained on this?

I dont know about petsmart but we got it at the place we buy our dog food which is a local chain.

and they actually have doggy mints. the sprays dont work that well at least in my experience. But four paws breath treats seemed to work really well.

Zoe does it too! Ugh the poop breath! I think I'm going to try the pineapple thing as well but she eats not just hers but everyone else's too AND unfortunately usually fresh from the source as well. BLAH! Makes me shutter just thinking about it.

Sprinkle her food with meat tenderizer (a low sodium formula if you can find it). It does something to the food during digestion - I've heard this will make the poop bitter so she'll be less likely to eat it.
