It is also advised not to punish the dog, as it can only reinforce this behavior. Better dog obedience training.

If the dog started to eat faeces, you must call him to himself, and give him a toy to distract his attention from the poop. If you are entering a dog on a leash, pull it out immediately as soon as he tries to eat faeces. In this case, it is very important to teach the dog commands "leave."

Do not forget the dog who eats poop, often destroy parasites. If you think the dog lacks vitamins, you need to feed him a balanced diet. Food needs to be changed depending on what a dog's body is missing. In this case, contact your veterinarian. If this behavior persists, a veterinarian gives medications.
