Hailey was not a poop eater until our beloved Gemi taught her to be. Gemi was the worst poop eater, she would stand under other dogs to catch the fresh poop. It was horrible.
When we lived in the city, we let Lee out in the backyard by herself and she would poop and eat it. Now that we are in the country without a safe place for her to be alone, we are with her and we can try and prevent it. It is not always easy because sometimes she will move while she is going so she can start to eat her own poop. Also, frozen poop is her favourite treat and she can remember where it is (even after it has snowed) and will try and dig it up. Fortunately, she only likes her own poop and the animal poop we find on the trails around our house. She does not like Phod poop.
We will keep trying to block her (but like I said she is sneaky). Let's hope we can break this habit!
Editors note: While my resolution to be more organized and stay on top of things has extended to work and not my blog! I will hopefully have time to catch up on writing mine and reading yours tomorrow . . . I should finish a huge work project today that will in theory give me free time!
