Answers from the Dog: Part 1
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!
