There are many reasons a dog might decide to chow down on crap....

many of of which are covered above.

another possibility is certain digestive disorders, I don’t remember exact details, but the end result is they don’t absorb sufficient quantities of certain nutrients from their food. The answe is adding pineapple juice to their food (again, I don’t remember exact details, it may help the digestive issue, or it may just add extra of the nutrients that are deficient...)

Sorry, I already said that.

This guy has it.

Vet told me to feed the dog that is the pooper lots of pineapple. The poop eating dog won't eat pineapple poop for some reason.

This is true. And if the pineapple makes their stool loose you can add canned pumpkin.

You need to train the dog. Next time he eats a turd you should grab a bite too. Show him you are chewing it and then spit it out.

This is right on time. We have three Goldens, one is 15, the other two are 9 month puppies. One of our puppies, stalks the older dog to eat it's poop. Doesn't mess with the other puppies poop just the older dog. Looking for a solution, probably will consult our vet. We have been ready to pick up the older dogs poop every time to keep it from happening and hoping the puppy would grow out of it.

The older dog eats canned chunk food with gravy, the puppies eat hard puppy food. So it would seem obvious there is some undigested food in the poop, although the other puppy doesn't seem interested.

Dogs.....

My brothers dog would not eat it but would lay in it and roll.
Disgusting. The dog was named bailey but I always call him shithead.
My brother does too unless his wife is around.

Went through this with my Golden pup, I tried every thing but no luck making him quit. Till one day he must have had a real belly full, came in the kitchen and pucked a pile half the size of a football. Now THAT was Gross. Though it was the last time he ate his own poop. There is a god.

I’ve got two Labs. The male loves to eat the females turds & we’ve tried everything to get him to stop to no avail. Best results were achieved through daily pickup, but this was also counterproductive as it simply increased his drive to consume the turds as quickly as possible. He now eats them as they’re being produced, like a fat man with his mouth open below a soft serve ice cream machine . Love the dog, but he is truly a filthy animal.

LOL we were out of town at a wedding last week when our dog sitter called us. She let the big collie and the little shit eater out together. She said the little one ran right under the collie when he was crapping and it landed all over the little ones head. She even got a shot of it. She was not happy when I said it sucks to be you, you have to give the shit eater a bath.

Your brother rolls in his shit? He should probably seek mental therapy!

LOL, we had a lab that started counter surfing, so I googled a remedy.
I follow it and place a piece of bread on the counter completely covered
with hot sauce and ground cayenne red pepper.
She ate the whole piece of bread and just happy she got sumthen lol

I have posted this opinion before..... every dog and cat that I have had was brought up with always having a full bowl of food at all times. I have never had an animal that was food crazy and that would resort to eating it's own waste. Our black lab was chunky but not real heavy and she lived for 15 years.

I believe from experience if the animals were raised with always having food available to them that they don't develop food lunacy. Our animals would eat a little food many times a day and not a single one grew to be fatties. The cat we have now will eat out of her bowl when we sit down to eat.

I would be interested to hear what an animal expert has to say about this. The dogs I had were dachshund, grayhound, German Shepherd, Siberian husky and lab so it wasn't just one breed of dog that this worked for, it was all of the dogs and 4 cats.

I don't think it's possible to change a dog into being a many times a day grazer when they've already been restricted to eating at a certain time. I think it's something that has to be done from the very beginning when they're young and they just get used to always having food available to them and don't turn into crazy food animals.

We have a Maltese, and the Vet told us to always keep food in the bowl. we do, and she doesn't eat poop.
