I know dogs eat poop, but...
My 4 month old dog is doing well with his house training. He's indoor-outdoor and is very good about not pooping on the lawn (we have kids, so this was an important thing to train for us!).
But argh! He finds poop in the bushes (where humans can't find it) and brings it onto the lawn to eat. And he leaves it there. It isn't HIS poop. It's cat (although it doesn't smell like cat poop) or raccoon (although it's on the ground) or I dunno--what does opossum poop look like?
So I accept I can't make him stop eating poop and I can't stop the poop from appearing and I can't really fence off where the poop appears because it's where I really want the DOG to poop and it's a large area. I just don't want poop on my lawn. :)
I know, I'm asking too much. I tried spraying bitter apple stuff on his finds in the hopes he'd decide poopeating wasn't for him. He just finds fresh poop. Should I try treating his found poop treats with something really unpleasant or should I just give up?
