Ever wonder what your dog wants to say to you? We will be answering simple questions that you've always or maybe never wanted to know about your dog, from their point of view.
Q: Why would you ever want to eat poop?
Answers Mo the dog: Why don't ya eat your poop? I think poo is terrific! It has lotsa smells, when I was a pup my Ma ate my poo, and heck it fills my belly again. Sometimes if you leave me alone for a bit too long, I have accidents and I don't wanna leave a mess, 'specially if I'm confined.
Maybe you could try gettin' me a higher quality food or feed me more at my meal times, but it may not be my issue, I might just kinda likes to eat it. I dunno what to say? You don't want me to eat it? Better beat me too it! YUM!
Answers the trainer: What Mo is trying to say is there are several reasons dogs may eat their feces, and no guarenteed fix for the condition. The best method is prevention and to follow your dog around with a pooper scooper!
My name is Kim, I've grown up in this beautiful place we call Marquette, MI. I have always been a lover of animals and my love for them has only grown stronger with age. I love all animals from mice to cows, to pigs and frogs. Of course as dogs are the ones living most closely among us they have become my passion. I worked for a kennel for 2+ years, and I loved caring for the dogs all day. Being a kennel worker significantly benefited me while I was studying dogs however the time came to follow my calling. In April 2010 I graduated with my diploma in Dog Obedience Trainer/Instructor from Penn Foster Career School, and have since begun building my experience in the field. I am currently owned (along side my husband Rick -who is also in the dog business as a groomer, and plays an active part in TacoMo as well) by 2 dogs named Rico Suave a 50lb adorable mix (His DNA came back as one parent being 1/2 Cocker Spaniel, 1/4 Pomeranian, & 1/4 Dachshund, the other parent while not confirmed is potentially an English Shepherd which honestly makes the most sense) and Smorzy a 50% Australian Shepherd/50%Shetland Sheepdog. They are a crazy duo and are not perfect by any means but I love having the tools to control their behavior whenever I need to. I love my dogs so much that TacoMo was named after them (Rico's nickname is Taco & Smorzy's is MoMo)! You'll learn by meeting me or reading my posts that while I can be a quiet person, I can also babble on forever!
