constant supervision is the easiest way. :)

Ew. I will definitely second the constant supervision comment. Gemma used to do this and it was horrific. We tried giving them pumpkin, which is supposed to make their poop taste bad, but even that didn't work. She outgrew it once she stopped having the opportunity to do it. There are also commercial products that you can buy to make their poop taste awful, but that won't really solve the pooping in the house problem. Good luck!

we put meat tenderizer on Lucy's food for awhile and it stopped her from eating her poos!

also, I have a friend who has a toddler named Mason and I freaked a bit while reading this :-p

also there is stuff you can get from the vet that makes their poo unappealing! i can't think of what it is called

They say they eat poop because they are lacking vitamins, but it's been my experience that it is indeed destroying evidence!!

Lots of puppies eat poop, their own or from other dogs, eventually they outgrow this nasty habbit.

Rory was a poop eater. Charley too. I've heard random things - put meat tenderizer in their food cause then the poop will taste bad, or that they eat poop out of a vitamin deficiency.

Rory and Charley both just kinda stopped one day, so I'm not much help.

ava hasn't eaten hers yet, but she always stands over it and smells it pushes it around. so i'm always nervous she will. when i talked to my vet, she said a little bit of pineapple or pineapple juice with her food would do the trick. it tastes good going down, but not so good coming out.
