    Default My dog eats everything!

    Everytime I take my dog for a walk she eats everything on the ground. She has even eaten cat poop. She is a Labrador/Greyhound mix and I have been told that Labradors love to eat from the ground. I am thinking to put on a nuzzle on her when I walk her but I feel so guilty about doing that. She absolutely hates it and tries to take it off for the whole walk. Does anybody have the same problem or know of any other solutions?

    I have a lab. She's 10 years old and ate everything. She will still eat cat poop if given the chance. When I would walk her as a puppy, she would eat gum off the sidewalk, trash, anything. Eventually, she stopped. When you walk her, try to get her to keep her eyes on you and the path ahead. When you let her smell things, make sure it's just leaves, dirt, grass, etc. You could also get a Gentle Leader leash. They control the head of the dog, instead of the neck.

    I have the same problem with my mini Dachshund! He's never tried cat poop, I guess because he hasn't been given the opportunity. He's eaten duck poop, iguana poop, and of course his own poop. He's tried to eat gum and chicken bones from grass in public places. Basically, if its gross and he's not supposed to eat it, he goes for it.

    I've heard of that too. I don't know why they do it. Maybe it's better the second time?

    I think it's many breeds. My SIL's Chihuahua ate his own poop too.

    When my dog was a puppy she ate every little poop she found on the street. Yes, very cool. So we asked our friends with dogs what they did to stop their dog from eating everything around them on the streets.

    I know it sounds veeeery funny and silly too, but it worked in my case: I checked the ground around my house for everything my puppy would find interesting to eat (yes, that was veeeery cool too, but everything for my little baby right? ) and then put pepper and tabasco on it. Really... I know, all my neighbours think now I'm the creepiest person ever, but it worked for my puppy. The first bite of tobasco stoped her from eating something equal.

    But - she didn't stop eating EVERYTHING in my house. Even salad with dressing if she finds it. Or 350g Salami like last week.

    My pug loves to eat paper, if I chase her she will take off with it and try to eat it before I catch her. She isn't interested in poop thank god but when I go to the bathroom, and flush, she will put her paws on the rim and look at what I am flushing she is a character.

    You need to teach your dog the Leave it- command.

    Start out with treats.. and lay them on the ground..and you say LEAVE IT when they do, reward them with another treat.. and so on..so when you're on a walk and you see something coming they will wanna eat you do the same- LEAVE IT.

    When my dog was a baby and he had an accident inside, he would drink up his own pee! Never understood that one.

    My dog likes paper too. I don't think he eats it though, he likes to shred it.
