    Default Pug eating poop

    We have a 18month old pug who constantly eats her poop or our boston terriers poop. What can we do to break her of this bad habit?

    Hello and to Pugvillage. One of my 3 Pugs, Lu Ci, is a poop eater and I have tried everything to no avail. She does, however, have discerning tastes and only eats hers or the other 2 Pugs' poop not the Peke's or Chihuahua's. I look at her and ask her how such a sweet, little face can do such a disgusting thing. Good thing they are so cute, right?

    hello & welcome Teri's dad!
    I have friends who started giving their pug 1/2 tablespoon (I believe?) of pineapple a day and it worked miracles! Hope you find something that works :)

    I had a Brittany Spaniel years ago that ate her poop and poop of other dogs. Our vet recommended we buy a product called "Deter". You give so many pills per lb of body weight. You have to give it to every dog, if they eat their poop as well. It was cost effective and worked excellent. I would have spent millions to stop that though! Good luck.

    My pug never ate her poop, but she did eat of the cat litter box. UGH! No matter what I did, I couldn't stop her. I would pick it up (in my bathroom) and throw down the toilet. Give a disgusting look and she went back later and did the same thing. She gave me that pug look and I was lost in love again!
