Hi Victoria, I wish I could offer different advice

but I have never had a pup that I was not able to deter and stop from doing this. It is really more of a training issue I believe. Be very diligent and make sure you have trained her to have strong focus on you. When she is out, keep her on a leash and as soon as she is going, get her to focus on you and call her as soon as she is done, click and treat her for her focus on you and then for come, that should help. We did have one boy Leo, who came to us as a poop eater, he was the toughest but with consistency we were able to get him to forget the poop altogether. You will also need to work on Leave it, that can help you also. I hope these suggestions are helpful.

        Thanks Lisa, we use the clicker for training but I haven't tried it with this problem yet so hopefully that will work. I have tried training her to 'Leave It' (her poop) but have made no progress... more
