Stop A Puppy From Eating Poop. The full article.

 

One of the biggest challenges dog owners have to deal with is dog eating poop. Puppies are adorable, but the sight of him snacking on his poop isn’t exactly exciting. It is a problem that you have to deal with and curb. This is because not only is the habit undesirable but it could also transmit illnesses to your pup. In this article, we are going to focus on the reasons and how to stop a puppy from eating poop.

 

Reasons why your puppy is eating poop

 

There are several reasons why puppies start eating poop. These reasons include;

  • Learned behavior – Surprisingly, this is one of the common reasons why you might find your pup eating poop. This is because puppies learn behaviors from older dogs. This is the way dogs live, even in the wild. For instance, in the wild, dogs live in packs. The older dogs somehow define the rules of the pack. Due to dogs co-existing, puppies tend to pick behavior from adult dogs. Adult dogs eat poop to protect their pack from predators.

 

Domestication of Dogs

 

However, due to domestication, dogs no longer feel the need to protect themselves. Well, that is because they feel safe with us, members of his pack. When a female dog gives birth to puppies, you might have to deal with coprophagia. This is because mother dogs have a tendency of eating puppies’ poop to clean after them. Unfortunately, your puppy may imitate the mother and end up eating poop.

Puppies that have been raised in a dog shelter may also pick up behaviors from older dogs. If you recently adopted a puppy, he may eat his own or other animal’s poop. However, puppies are easy to train and so you should not have much problem curbing the latter.

  • Hunger – Feeding a puppy is easy, they only need to eat like four times a day. However, you also have to consider the amount and type of food you are offering your dog. Over the months, you are required to monitor your pup’s eating habits. For instance, a month old puppy cannot feed the same amount of food a six months old puppy will.

If your puppy is hungry, or simply underfed, he may engage in poop eating. Usually, young puppies will feed more often than adult dogs do. You will have to feed your puppy based on the age, weight and energy levels. This means that you really have to monitor your puppy and make sure that your puppy is well fed.

Sadly, not only does the amount of food you feed to your dog matters but also the nutritional components of the food. Like humans, puppies also need to feed on a balanced diet. Your vet should be able to advise on the type of food to offer your dog.

  • He loves it – this is actually a difficult concept to explain. I mean, how come a dog loves to eat poop, of all the other snacks there could be? However, this is usually related to the smell and taste of the poop. For instance, puppies absolutely love the taste and smell of cat poop. This makes it double trouble if you keep both cats and dogs.

Dogs love the taste of cat poop. In fact, dog owners who also keep a cat will confess that they have caught their dogs eating cat poop. Your dog may also find his own poop a delicacy, which is even grosser. However, if you cannot find a viable reason why your puppy is dining on poop, maybe he just likes it.

  • Digestive enzymes deficiency – As much as it may appear normal for a dog to eat poop, you should not ignore it. Instead, you should monitor your dog consistently to identify why he is doing so. Sometimes, coprophagia is a result of a lack of necessary digestive enzymes.

Initially, dogs lived in the wild and so their digestive system is accustomed to certain foods. However, domestication requires dogs to live with us. In this case, they do not have to hunt for prey since we feed them. Unfortunately, sometimes the foods we feed our dogs are not enough in terms of nutritional compositions.
