Deter is what worked with Lucy. She was eating her own plus our chihuahua Paco's poop. I watched her one day literally stand and wait for him to finish pooping so she could pounce on the fresh poop. I almost puked!!!
Since we've been dealing with housebreaking issues anyway, I started taking her out on a leash every time and when I see her show too much interest in something on the ground, and if I see that it's poop, I pull back on the leash with a gentle but firm correction and say, "leave it", which is a command she knows. So far...no more poop eating. Give the leash a try?
