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 once she is off the leash. I did have a question, would you recommend not letting her off the leash outside until this is under control? I don't want to go backwards but she absolutely loves being outside playing ball and running through the sprinklers. Also, if she does get to it before me do you have any tips on how I should react?
