Charlie

Hi All!

I am the owner of a Havanese puppy "Charlie". He is 11.5lbs and is 6 months old. Charlie won't stop eating rabbit poop. (Instead of letting him roam free in the yard, I have been putting him on the leash to stop the habit, but that is getting old.)

Any suggestions would be great!

Amy

Ha!!! Welcome to the world of dog ownership. This is what dogs do. If they find something smelly and they don't eat it, they'll roll in it. This includes rabbit poop, deer poop, turkey poop, chicken poop, dead fish... anything! And if you have a cat box, make sure that's out of reach or, Mmmm! Tootsie Rolls!

Really the only way to completely avoid it is to keep them away. Since we live on 5 acres bordering the woods, we end up doing lots f baths, and tooth brushing for bad breath!

My guys love rabbit poop! Early in the morning and as the sun goes down our yard is filled with baby bunnies, my vet laughed and said it won't hurt them (racoon scat is a whole different thing), my guys love to roll in it and their noises are to the ground as if the bunny fairy left them something very special.

Poohkey miss you, monkey.

My little chihuahua used to eat goat poop. She loved that stuff! I couldn't get her to stop for anything.

Sorry, no help here.

My dog growing up loved rabbit poop. We had a rabbit we let run around the family room sometimes and he would "clean up" after her : ). Gross, yes, helpful, yes!
