Help with 3 month old hav pups eating poop!

Hello everyone...I have two 3 month old female havs who ate eating their poop!!! I have tried everything...Prosense Poop Eater Solution from Pet Supplies Plus doesn't seem to be working...100% canned Pumpkin does nothing to deter either. If anyone can shed some insight I would really appreciate it.

A certain number of dogs... just do it. (I am VERY happy that mine don't!) The only 100% effective way of avoiding it is to have the dog on leash when it poops, so you can physically keep it from happening. Then clean up the poop right away, so the other one can't get it.

Dogs can be gross. LOL!

And I have yet to meet a dog that doesn't enjoy "cat crunchies".

The vet sad it's normal and not to worry about it, but to me that is not acceptable. The only solution he offered up was to put canned pineapple on her food. This did work the week I did it, but I didn't like the sugar or extra calories in it. So I'm going to try some supplements.

I was absolutely DETERMINED that Kodi would never get the opportunity to develop a taste for poop. So he was ALWAYS on leash for potty breaks outside. He had no opportunity to even sniff it!

It’s harder with multiples, but I still went outside with ecah of the other two as puppies, and made sure all waste was picked up as soon as it was produced.

Hi. I am having the same problem with my 5 month old Havanese, Ivy. As suggested, I monitor when she goes and make sure she does not have a chance to touch it. However here is my problem, I am training with an in door potting tray. She mainly goes outside and occasionally pees in it at night. Just this morning I left her alone in the room for 5 mins and she pooped, I walked in when she ate the last piece. It grosses me out! I yelled at her, but the damage was done. Ivy can be the perfect dog if she didn't eat her poop! I feel your pain, I hate it! Hopefully she will out grow this.
