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.

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.

And grass-eating doesn't usually lead to throwing up - less than 25% of dogs that eat grass vomit regularly after grazing.

Other suggested reasons why your dog might be eating grass include improving digestion, treating intestinal worms, or fulfilling some unmet nutritional need, including the need for fiber.

On average, puberty (or sexual maturity) is reached at about six months of age, but this can vary by breed. Smaller breeds tend to have their first estrous cycle at an earlier age, while large and giant breeds may not come into heat for the first time until they reach eighteen months to two years of age.

Eating their own poop is harmless, but consuming poop from other animals may cause health problems if the stool is contaminated with parasites, viruses, or toxins. In most cases, this behavior will fade before the puppy is about nine months old.
