✔️

Dogs sometimes eat poop out of boredom, for attention, to avoid punishment, or due to health issues.

However, stool eating, also known as coprophagy, is actually quite normal behavior for a puppy.

She does this both to keep the "den" clean and to protect the puppies from predators that might be drawn by the scent.

✔️

Domestic dogs, which can also be avid eaters of poop, have been found to turn to poop eating due to nutritional deficiencies in their diets caused by starvation or disease, prior research has suggested.

However, that doesn't explain why otherwise healthy dogs would develop a taste for waste.

✔️

Perhaps the best way to stop the problem is through training and environmental management methods, including:

  1. Keep the dog's living area clean, including the yard, so there will be no poops for him to pick up.
  2. Cat owners should keep that litter box clean or out of the dog's reach.
✔️

According to the American Animal Hospital, it is normal for a canine to defecate within a short period of time after eating a meal.

Going No. 2 should happen at least once each day to keep a dog on a healthy potty schedule.

Some dogs will poop more than once per day.

✔️

Do-it-yourself suggestions to help you stop your dog from eating his own poop include:

  1. Coat stools with hot sauce or lemon juice. Add a few tablespoons of canned pumpkin to his food bowl each day.
  2. Add meat tenderizer to your dog's food (it will make the dog waste taste VERY bad).
  3. Keep waste picked up on a regular basis.
✔️

Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.

Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.

✔️

Do you let your dog sleep in your bed with you at night? Research has shown that slightly less than one-half of all pet owners share their bed or bedroom with their pet.

Even so, you have likely been told by at least one well-meaning person that your dog should sleep on the floor, in his crate, or in his own bed.
