Alright, this is waaaayyyy off topic, but as many of you know, I got a new puppy on Friday. I found out this evening that he is a feces eater! He's been sniffing at it but I've been beating him to it, but tonight I walked away and he got there first (stop reading if you will be grossed out by this sort of thing). I turned around and see him with a big piece of poop in his mouth and part of it falling out, then him reaching down to eat it up again (a graphic image that will likely be with me for life). I've read this is normal for dogs, and that they like cat turd especially.

Anyone else run into this? Did the puppy grow out of it? Before today I thought he was being good and holding it until I got home from work, now I'm not so sure.

Yea!!! Talking about gross.
My moms poodle did this when he was a puppy.
Dad went and got some pepper spray and started spraying poop.
That didnt work, so dad put some Marie Sharps Belizean Heat Habanero Pepper Sauce on the poop and after about 2 or 3 times of getting a mouth full extra spicy poop the dog started covering his poop and wouldnt go near it.
Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!

In reply to:

You do know how wrong that sounds, right?

He'll likely grow out of eating his own poop, but my dog still likes to eat the occasional "kitty roca" (i.e. cat poop with kitty litter on it). No big deal, unless you're incurably squeamish.

We have a cat and a dog. The dog is a stray Yorkshire terrier we took in. That is one disgusting animal, I tell you. We had a litter box for the cat in the bathroom and one day I found it tipped over onto the floor and all of the doo-doo was missing. And I know that the only creature in the vicinity was that sneaky, disgusting dog. I don't think you can stop this. Dogs are just GROSS! yUCK

Good catch, Peter.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. My dog ate everything in sight when I first got her but she learned soon enough what was food and what wasn't. Just keep trying to beat the dog to it, so to speak. The dog will grow out of it. Don't forget that's really a baby you're dealing with. Just a little patience and understanding is required.

I must say this was the funniest thread I've ever read.I was sitting here at 5 am before work reading this laughing my fool head off.I not sure they grow out of it though,we have a 7 year old dog that still does it.I asked the vet why would he do this and he said,because he likes it.Now that is sick.

No, i didn't realize how beating him to it sounded until you pointed it out. I only actually tried it myself once

Hopefully he'll grow out of it. He made quite a mess today...I missed it for the most part since it was one of the few nights my wife got home before me. His duck chew toy is being washed for the second time this week, along with some other things. I think he is about to go up for his second bath as well.

He was good last night at least....he slept until 4:30 am without starting to cry/bark. That's an improvment for him.

Years ago my brother and his roomate shared a house along with a boxer, a brittany and a cat. Every time the cat headed for the litter box the dogs would follow it and lay in wait while the cat did its business. As soon as the cat stepped one foot out of the litter box, they would both dart for the litter box and fight over the fresh cat droppings.

Years later, the brittany was found 8 feet up a tree hanging from its collar and dead. Apparenty, the dog chased a critter (probably a raccoon) up a tree and when it slid back down the tree its collar got snagged on what was left of a broken off branch and hung itself.

The dogs name was Lucky. Irony? Lucky was easily the dumbest dog I ever encountered.
