Poop eater

Unfortunately Leo has decided to eat his poop. We remove the poop as soon as possible but he's quicker than us sometimes. We've tried pumpkin and will be buying some Forbid shortly. When do most puppies stop eating their poop and do some do this forever? Hard to want to snuggle with him when I'm afraid of getting too close to his mouth--yuck!

Rexy went through a period of poop eating. We tried a few things but what really worked was switching his diet. Once he was on raw or freeze-dried raw the poop eating stopped completely. Before that it was intermittent and we did pick up after him most times before he could get to it. However, when he goes now he just doesn't have any interest in the poop.

We give him Fromm's puppy gold dry food 1/3-1/2 cup twice a day. We mix it with pumpkin and 1 teaspoon Fromm's salmon pate along with a little warm water.

Cassie was originally a poop eater, but we worked excessively to pick it up before she could eat it. Now, she does an amazing thing...she runs out to her grassy poop area and literally waits for us to get there so we can collected it as it hits the ground. She seems to think she is helping us with our collection hobby. Once in awhile we don't get there fast enough, so she stands close by so that we can find it. She never tries to eat it now.

She has been on the same food since birth ...a mixture of three grain free kibbles, some fresh pet chicken/turkey and often some boiled chicken on top. I personally think it was just a puppy habit that she out grew after not getting to eat it and she learned that we wanted it for ourselves. My advice is to remove it from menu immediately and eventually poop eating will end...
