Puppy problem

We have 2 Shitz tzu pups, one has decided that she likes to eat her own fieces, any suggestions for how to stop her from doing that.

This is common for puppies, just try and make sure her diet is up to code containing all the good things pupies need and also, never praise the behaviour. Even negative attention is attention to a cross eyed pup. Ignore the bad behaviour and it goes away. UNLESS someone here has a better idea, Im just going by what I know, but it's been like 12 years since I had a lil pupper. Good luck!

You can get a tasteless powder to put in their food that will make their poop taste terrible.

Both suggestions are wonderful. It's completely normal for them to eat it, you may need to get both of them on a better diet.

I have also heard of feeding them a few pieces of pineapple and that will make the poo taste terrible as well.

Yeah pineapple really works, just add up a little on his food.

Puppy

I haven't had a puppy in so long, those all sound like great suggestions to keep the puppy from eating its feces. The pineapple sounds like a good idea. Will they just eat it??
