Why Do Dogs Eat Poop & What to do About It

Posted on by Soulmutts Toronto in Dog Boarding, Dog Day Care, Dog Walking, Pet Sitting | Comments Off on Why Do Dogs Eat Poop & What to do About It

We have a dog in our pack right now is voracious about eating poop.   Given the chance he would run around and eat every piece the minute it hits the ground – gross right!?!   This isn’t the first time we’ve dealt with this and it certainly won’t be the last. I have been asked before why dogs eat poop and what can be done to curb the habit.   I thought I’d write a bit on the topic because there are so many reasons/possible causes and some of them might be a warning that something else is going on with your dog’s health – so it’s important to pay attention to this if it’s happening with your dog!     Let’s start with the medical reasons a dog might eat poop:   1.

As the rainy Spring season comes about and we start dealing with muddier, messier, wetter dogs many parents have started asking me what kinds of things they can leave for us and what kinds of things they can do in their condos to make it easier for them to manage their dogs. This got me to thinking about all the things I have seen in my days in dog care that people have in their house/condos to make life with a dog easier in general – NOT just in the Spring (but some of these things can be helpful for weather changes too!).   I have compiled a list of some of the best things I have seen dog owners do to make life easier/better for them and their dog when living in the city and are ESPECIALLY great for busy working professionals. Not all of these things are the …
