So glad it is not just me! There was even more along the route today. People are disgusting...what is that saying, the more people I meet, the more I love my dog or something like that. Yes, it is gross, but hey most of em changed their kid's diapers, no???

I was hyper vigilant and caught him sniffing a few but none were eaten. Leave it and a tug on the leash seemed to get the message across. Problem is when they are hidden in the leaves and he smells them before I see them...

Such is the life with a dog who loves his walks!

YES! YES! I too, went to the Drama Queen School of Dog Training....but only for cat poo at my son's house! I yell, "Molly don't you Dare EAT THAT! NO! NO! NO !!!!get out of there! Drop that right NOW!" as she runs away with her yummy morsel down the hallway with me chasing her while the 3 cats scramble to get out of our way..... for some reason the 'Drop It' command just doesn't work for cat poop!

We are dealing with the sneaking into the cookie jar issue aka kitty litter box! Grrrr! It is in our bathroom. We try to keep the pocket door open just enough so the kitten can get in but the pooch can't!

Omg this has left me laughing out loud. My Nicholas will lay in wait and literally eat Maggie's while she is still doing it. Talk about disgusting. Maggie will turn circles and self clean (gross) or convince Penelope to clean it up for her. Omar is the only one who won't eat anyone or anything's poop. The greatest delicacy is a fresh pile of deer poop. Yum. I quit being disgusted along time ago and we just try to be faster than they are. Lol. Have tried every medicine and thing known to mankind and they still do it.

I too have been laughing... Remington does not do this, and in fact seems to be grossed out by poo in general... well unless you yourself sit down to potty, then that seems to be the best time for him to come in and hug you ug!

I feel so bad for you all, this is kinda a silly question, but do you allow your poodles to lick you? I love Remington kisses, but think that if I had just seen that I would not be so apt to let him lick me....

Default Out for a walk

I am not a trainer/behaviorist/etc... but it sounds like your dog's walks are a little too casual, and more about him having a good time than working. I would go with a shorter leash, and move at a brisker/more commanding pace... a pace that makes your dog pay attention to moving... not sniffing. While my dogs are not necessarily in a formal 'heel' position when we walk, they certainly aren't spending all of their time nose to the ground... anytime they do stop to sniff, we move forward, this time in heel... watching me.
I would say work on your 'watch me' command, so when you ask the dog to look, he looks no matter what.
I highly recommend dogs wearing backpacks too, to help wear out some of their mental energy and focus more.
Maybe you should stop trying to 'scold' or make a big deal out of the behavior... as the attention in its self can be a reward to the dog... ignore it, and just move forward.
I will say the biggest change in my poop-eater (ate it in our yard) was switching to feeding raw... she stopped almost immediately. It also cured the 'pica' in our poodle (obsessive eating non-food items).

Good luck!

Great response. We walk very much the same as you. I don't think it's any less fulfilling for the dogs, and of course it has helped us keep foreign bodies out of our puppies mouths.

I am working on tightening up on the walks. And you are right, I do use them as fun in addition to practicing obedience and pottying. Also working on our "leave it" and "head up" commands as well. He generally maintains a decent heel when we walk and we do a pretty good pace. My hubby hates to walk with us cause we go too fast! Those big long poodle legs...

The issue comes up when he goes to relieve himself during the walk, which is part of the reason for the walk. He'll approach a tree and sniff it to decide if it is a good one to use...and then...He does not show any interest in his own, but that is collected right away so he does not have opportunity anyway.

I have taken to prescreening trees as best I can- difficult with leaves on the ground hiding the poop (which seems to be from small dogs). How ridiculous I must look to anyone watching...

How does a backpack figure in here? Just that when the dog has it on, he knows is to be working and not playing?

You guys have helped me calm down a notch or two. I had no idea it was so common. I guess we are happy to tell a funny story about stealing the piece of toast off the plate but not so quick to share that our dog eats poop!

Sweetheartsrodeo, my Wal is not a big kisser. I do miss it as my Westies were kissers, but given not only the poop eating but the fact that he seems obsessed with his boy parts and frequently is sniffing there, it is a good thing he is not too lovey. He is affectionate in many other ways, so I am good with no kisses!

Have a great day everyone!
