If you have only the one dog to deal with this is fairly straight forward.
I Have never had any luck with putting anything on the dog's stool. Instead of this while you are there just get it up as it takes no more time.
To the poster that puts Accent on the food or poo , this is a common mistake as the correct ingredient used in many Anti-Coprophagia aids is the powdered naturally derived enzyme powder in meat tenderizer. Please don't give you dog Accent as it may be harmful to your dog..............
With only one dog your best bet is strong training (Leave it command ) on basic obedience will help. And yes you can be faster than the dog bc you know this
behavior is coming right after the poop....................
The next thing is from MuzzlesMom's post and it is so very correct :
>dogs can become hungry when you feed him once a day and may scavenge around for food and poo may become appealing due to hunger
dogs may be overfed.<
>Overfeeding usually leads to indigestion. Its poo will therefore still smell and taste like dinner<
>some medications and antibiotics have been observed to develop Coprophagia in dogs<
>a change in diet --from a low fat diet to a high fat diet--may also promote Coprophagia<
This is from Snoopy's post: and it is very very important :
>If that will not stop him I don't know what will except rigid obedience training, perhaps.<
If you can put a break in this habit with any means at hand , it is more likely that it can be a permanent fix as more time goes bye. This can be a tuff problem
to fix , however , time is on your side. Be persistent with training to "Leave it" and reward correct behavior.
Never ever punish for this behavior other than saying no in a strong tone ( read: not yelling ), just use reward based training for correct behavior.
As for the worm (parasite) , just treat with the correct wormer until you rid your pet of the parasite and clean up waste .
You can win this one , it just takes time and patience.
Good Luck , oldhounddog
