Eats rabbit poop!?

Have the sweetest, smartest puppy. Trained for outdoors.... He's 15 weeks.
We have a small suburban yard. I let him play in the grass and he seems to sniff and pke his muzzle in the grass and chews. First I thought it was grass. Now I'm convinced it's rabbit poop. We dont have rabbits though I've seen a few in the neighborhood. He also had a positive fecal for coccidiosis. What can I do to rid him of this nasty habit?

Lawdy lawdy but does my guy LOVE the rabbit poop!!! It's like a buffet in my yard. We've asked our vet if there's a problem with him doing this, but he is pretty unconcerned.

Our dogs will snack on rabbit poop if they can find it! We do our best to keep the rabbits out of the dog's portion of the yard, but sometimes they slip through.

What bothers me is when our dogs go after the ravens' poop. That is disgusting! We have to be extra diligent at trying to scrape that stuff up before the dogs get it.

Rabbit poop, deer poop, chicken poop... And the WORST... turkey poop! Kodi eats, or worse, ROLLS in them all. I just have to remind myself, that cute and fluffy as he is, underneath, he's still a dog!

I could've written this thread! Same thing happening w/Kallie. Buries her nose in the grass & just roots for poop! I'm sure that's what she's doing cuz we have lots of rabbits. And she is on meds for coccidia right now. I try to stop her from doing it, but she's so darned quick!

Totally agree, try to catch that little nose when it buries in the grass and have scooped more than a few little rabbit kibbles from his mouth! EWWW! Reassuring to hear he is acting normally. Been telling him "No" with a stern voice when he does it. Thanks Dave for the link. I always read the links you suggest to others. They are always so informative.
