luvmypuppet - that is the sweetest thing!!!

Cooper has so many! :shock: lol. Poop munching is one. Verbal Diarhea another. And one more is redecorating my house, apparently he thought we needed different carpet in the spare room, so he helped us rip out the old stuff. I do wish he'd consult with me before making any rash decisions like that :? .

:lol:

I need a dictionary :oops:

No I haven't tried anything yet. Although I don't think it can be that healthy for them to do...it sure helps me with cleaning the yard up :lol: :lol: I am going to look for that fobid stuff the next time I'm at a pet store. I'll try anything!

Seren - yes, you're right. He was just trying to be helpful :roll: :lol:

I have the same problem....only it's my big guy (Golden Retreiver,Buster) eating Taco's. I got on the web to find out what I could about it. Apparently, it's quite common. The scientific name for the behavior is coprophagy. It basically says that they really aren't sure why they do this, but, once they start, it's practically impossible to stop them from doing it. They say it's bad because they can get parasites from eating either their own or other dog's feces. The best way to stop it is to keep it cleaned up. So, I'm running around in the back yard trying to find it and clean it up before Buster finds it and eats it. Yuch........lol

have you guys tried DETER... I gave Gadget a 1/4 tablet 2 times in his food and he hasn't touched the stuff since and that was about a month ago...


as far as bad habits... hmmm.. I thinkt he only one he has is he seems to miss his potty ppad sometimes...

He is a really good pup and I have gotten lucky with him when he starts doing something that is bad I usually can get it stopped in a short time...

Well, if you cal this a bad habit he usually gets zoomies after I go to bed and he wants to zoom and play @ 11pm every night...

nd that darn alarm clock goes off everymorning at 5:45 and he jumps out of bed and is ready to bounce off the walls...

he is the only morning person in the house...

Well, Jasmine also likes to eat her poop. I'm not sure if she's really eating all that much of it, or just playing with it. LOL She will get a piece in her mouth and shake her head just like she's playing with one of her toys. Only solution I have found is pick it up as soon as she goes. If she goes outside, I have a plastic grocery bag over one hand and just pick it up immediately. If she goes on her pad, I'm standing there with toilet tissue waiting for her to finish so I can pick it up and flush it. Sometimes she'll give me a look, like "cool it Mom, I'm not done yet. :lol:

Lily has to roll in horse poop any time we encounter it (we live in a very urban area so this is a problem only when we go to a nearby state park where horses are also allowed). And she insists upon eating (or trying to eat) moss and the tender roots of new grass. The grass thing isn't a problem so much in the summer but in the spring there is all new growth and she goes wild for the tender shoots. She would stand and graze all day if I let her. I think she was a cow in a former life. :lol:

Auggie's worst habit is also the poop thing. Even worse is he doesn't care about is own or other dogs much but is attracted to cat poop. The worst because with the wild cats around here I really worry about what they have. I have to watch him like a hawk ( bad chice of words after reading other post ) Fortunately I always walk him on a leash and can stop him :roll: Next worst is wanting to roll in gross things ( like squished frogs in the road) :shock:

OMG, Jasmine does the same thing. Usually around 5:00 to 5:30, and she will drive me nuts till I get up. And it's not cause she needs to go potty - she goes potty on her pee pad. Then when I'm up, about 30 minutes later she is sound asleep again. GRRRRRR
