After reading the article and many comments, I feel much better that I am not alone having my chocolate lab eating poo and rubbish from time to time. I live in Munich where there are green park in just about every neighborhood where people walk dogs and kids and adults play balls or bike through. Naturally there are always dogs poo here and there. Not everyone picks up their dogs piles.
Worse there are also trash, I mean left over food, plastic wrap, packages, old rotten meals people just throw into bushes where our sweet quick nose labs can find them quickly. Often enough there will be human secrement, too. With all tricks and guides and advice, it is almost impossible to prevent our dogs not to engage in this kind of behavior unless they are always on the leash and or wear muzzle when out for a walk. I have a 3 years old intact male choco lab. I deal with this daily and not only that I have to watch out when bitchs which are in heat around because my Apollo will take off as soon as he smells it in the air.
Apollo loves sports specially ball, not only retrieving but catching and blocking in the air. He can play an hour long, He is a Frisbee pro. He is an excellent swimmer no matter how cold the water is. He can run along on leash while I bike. Highly clever and mischievous. Even though I engage him with all kinds of sports and activities the whole time we are out, nevertheless he is still finding things to eat out there.
But not every time, though. How can you use magic word if he find old hamburger or sandwich and already in his mouth. What I try to do is I try not to let him being to far from me, maybe only a few meters. That way he knows that I am watching him. Using recall immediately when it looks like he is about to eat something like dog poo. It works most of the times. Even though you manage to get him away, he will remember to come back for it even another hour later. It is frustrating but that how Labrador is.
I know quite a few lab owners and we share same story. You can do your best to minimize it but you cannot change the eating habit of Labrador. Labs are notorious garbage eaters. You are not alone. Try using banana as a treat…it works for me. They give up poop for bananas. Worth a try,. Hi Heather, You mentioned one of your labs tried eating her own poop but you trained her out of it…how exactly did you do that? She too will often eat the evidence. It is destroying our relationship with her…. Is your 3 year old crate trained? And make sure she only has room to lay dow, stand and turn around.
Hi Pippa. I tried very hard to train this out of her. She then began to learn that if she left it, she got a tasty treat from me. I watched her actually look at me, put her head down to eat the poo, but actually wait for my word knowing a treat would come, THEN we would walk on and she would run back for it. She was far to clever! My Labrador gobbles poo down so quickly so there is no time for a command. Actually, I have 5 Gundogs who snack on poo from time to time. I have given up to a point. I try and keep them occupied with hunting or retrieving which is more interesting to them than eating poo!!
How do we know when our labs are ready to leave the crate for sleeping elsewhere in the house at night? Is there something to look for that will convince us that the house training has worked and she is ready to be on her own at night? If we are in the same room, her uneasiness and going to the door is a good clue. But, what about when she is not with us?
Your help to others has been very useful to us and I hope you have some answers for us on these topics too. Most of our labs stop being crated at night around 2 years of age. But they sleep in dog beds in our bedroom so they are not on their own. I still keep our 2 year old lab in a crate during the day if I am out. I have a 16 week chocolate lab bitch, not left on her own, walked minimum 3 times a day, morning afternoon and then night She will leave poop that she finds when walking no problems there.
But if she poops in the garden inbetween walked she will eat it as fast as it comes out. No time to clean it up ourselves. She it great apart from that she will return on command walks off the lead, and is toilet trained in house. She is fed wainwrights puppy food was thinking on trying all meat instead any advise would be great fully used. Hi Kirk. I have read your comments on here.. I am experiencing the same problem with our 4 month old black lab pup. He is also on wainwrights food. Can you advise me as to how you cured this problem? Good luck with your dog. I have had the misfortune to walk with someone who both dogs eat each others poop!
I found it revolting and sickening. J have had seven dogs over thirty years or so and only one Lab tried it. We trained her out of it and she was fine. None of our other dogs bothered. Some were fed Kibble,some meat and mixer. Our boy now is fed Kibble with a little wet meat mixed in. He is in good health and condition. I think anxiety is a issue and it must be rotten for them to be left all day and if they do have an accident that would be bad for them. They hate poking and weeing in their own space. I am allways angry when people take a dog or puppy and leave them to go to work.
What is the point in having a dog if your going to abandon it..
Come on people show a little sense and figure it out! Hi, I am at the end of my tether. I have two springer spaniels, one is 3 the other is 6 months old. The 6 month old is weeing and pooing in the house even when the back door is open, the other day he did it whilst I was in the room but I had my back to him. He is constantly eating poo as well, and will even bring it inside the house.
The 3 year old is a dream and very well behaved and we are doing exactly the same with the puppy. I feel like I can go on with this much longer as I have 4 children and its simply unhygienic. Can anybody help? He is not too old to learn, but you need to get cracking on a really structured house training programme.
The key rules are to go out with the puppy, reward any successful toilet outings, and to confine or restrict the pup after any unsuccessful trips to the garden. Picking up and even eating poo is very normal puppy behaviour. He will probably grow out of carrying poo around. It is just a game to him. In the meantime, pick up his poops as soon as he has done them, and distract him with food or games if manages to pick one up. Check out the housetraining and crate training articles in the puppies section for more information.
Thank you so much for clearing my mind. I was getting worried…. I will be more aware and clean right away every time I can, to give any chance for him to eat this unpleasent snack. Thank you also for this amazing website that gives the most helpful information.
My 6 month old Choc Lab Bitch takes great delight in eating other dogs and cats poo.

She is well fed Hills Science Plan well exercised and loved to bits, never left and played with loads. I have tried everything to stop her doing this ghastly habit to no avail. We just have to put up with her bad breath and very smelly wind!!! I am just hoping she will grow out of it. Hi Varun, I hope you find this article helpful. Best wishes, Pippa. We have a 10year old chocolate lab who ate her own poo as a puppy but nothing else until she has now obsesive co mpulsion to eat fox poo.
She gets the smell and shes of and no amount of calling will stop her. Any tips? They are rescue dogs and I have had them nearly two years. One of them has had an ear operation and is completely deaf which makes it even more difficult for me to stop her eating poo. It really spoils our walks as they keep stopping every few yards for a snack! In the end I have to put them on leads otherwise we would never get anywhere.

I have always had dogs but have never had this problem before. Any suggestions? I am at a loss for what to do. Our 18 m. This, much more than the general poo scavenging is unacceptable behaviour — how do I stop it? We both work full time but manage to get back home at 3 hourly intervals. Hi Tanya, many 14 week old puppies cannot last 3 hours without a wee or poo. Most small puppies need letting out more often than this.
And as your vet has pointed out, a habit has now been established, which can be tricky to break. Crate training is the best answer, to resolving house training problems but it is not very kind to leave a puppy in a crate for three hours in the morning and again in the afternoon. Many puppies will eat their poop if left alone with it for very long. It sounds as though you need to find someone to help with your puppy during the day, at least until he is house trained, and a little more mature. He finds it hard to walk past a pile without eating it.
The only poo he wont eat is that which is obviously derived from bones and is very white in colour. I can only conclude that it must taste nice which is why the new dog does it. My advice — now being resigned to accepting it is: Worm, treat for parasites and vaccinate regularly. I keep my dogs on a lead for the first part of a walk where most of the poo will be.
This problem seems to be increasingly common amongst not only the labradors I meet but other gun dogs — particularly, spaniels. My 3 year old failed guide dog is obsessed! Nothing works so I let him get on with it but try to walk in areas where poo is minimal. I wondered if it was a pack thing as the older dog is in charge and the middle one just a plaything. I have tried pineapple, banana, kelp. I even at one point left some in the garden covered in tobasco but he seemed to like that too. I know this was posted a long time ago but I found your comment interesting as our 16 month old female yellow lab not spayed as I breed labs, she will be my only breeding bitch has started eating our eldest retired girls poo, in fact she follows her around to do so.
Which is sort of the opposite of what the article states. I try to not worry about it but I do find it hard to cope with. This is one of the most useful blogs I have read on this subject. My 18 month old lab, Ruby, has taken a liking to particular types of poo. As a novice dog owner it is reassuring that Ruby is not showing unusual behaviour. My worry is that our 1 year old is insistent on eating our cats po!
She even waits until the cat goes out and follows her. Back door closed. My 2-month old pup has started eating his own poop because i get to leave him during the day because of my job.

Would he get sick or something? He has sampled horse and cow poo also but dog poo is his all time favourite. He is fed on kibble and certainly gets enough to eat. His weight is spot on for his age and he has plenty of exercise. I find it embarrassing and certainly his breath is vile. How to stop this revolting habit apart from restricting his freedom and keeping him on a lead so that he cannot run but can be stopped eating poo, there seems to be no happy medium. Sounds familiar, my 1 and half year old yellow lab is the same. Weekdays Millie is walked on the lead around the streets and a local field, weekends we take her to a nearby forest.
She is lead walked until we pass the majority of poop and then let off, almost immediately she is on the trail for poop not interested in sticks or balls to retrieve. The recall is an obvious route and should work, Millie responds well to recall but not when she has sniffed some choice poop. Review score. Luana United States of America. Frances Morocco.

Khaled host is a very nice guy. Helped us with city information and bus schedule etc. We were very happy with overall experience. I stayed only one night to take my bus to Amman. The bus stop is only meters away. Also very close there are some historic points like the Basilica of the Annunciation which we visited quickly before taking the bus at The room is large, clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and received us in a late and delayed check in at midnight without complaints.
GPS could not take us there easily! Meals are homemade and great. Nothing that I can think of. The property is located in a perfect location to explore the city. Khaled gave us all the indications and many useful information. The room was very big and clean. It looks like new. We would definitely stay there if we come back to Nazareth.
