Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Eating waste is normal and natural to dogs, even though the very thought of it makes us gag. Cat feces probably attracts dogs because cat food is higher in protein and fat than dog food, and consequently cat feces is, too. You can often pique a dog’s interest in a specific toy by taking it out, playing with it excitedly by yourself, then putting it away again. There are some well-accepted behavioral explanations for dogs eating their own stool — not that I know of any research to back them up. Many people muzzle their dogs to prevent poop-eating, but the commonest result is simply a muzzle stained with droppings, which is more than you wanted. Your guess is as good as mine, as for why dogs like horse and cow manure and goose droppings. Dogs who suffer from malabsorption syndromes, like exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, sometimes eat feces, including their own.


Tidy the lawn and clean up the poop so there is nothing poopy for your dog to experiment with.
If the poop-snack habit isn’t well established, it might die away on its own, provided your dog has no additional opportunities to practice it. Unlike humans above the age of two, plenty of dogs just love The Poop, whether it comes from cats, horses, geese, or, most disgustingly to many a proud owner, their own body or their master’s. Before dogs were dogs, they were wolves, and upon locating human excrement and human garbage, the wolves chowed down.
The rationale would be the same one that makes crate training so successful: dogs avoid soiling their nests. The commercial taste deterrents you feed your dog don’t have any impact on any feces but hers.
Eventually, there evolved an animal like the wolf, except that it was smaller, it hung around folks, and mostly scavenged instead of mostly hunted: The Dog.


Poop, too, may suddenly rise in value to your dog when the result of his own provisional sniff and lick is the fact that you shriek, tug him away, and stash the experimental stuff in a bag. If you reside in a rural area, chances are you can’t control the availability of horse and cow and goose and deer droppings. And no matter how much your dog hates it, and which kind of hindrance you use, sooner or later he will find an untreated stash. And the following time he spots some feces at the dog park, he speeds up the snatch-and-grab, and you melt into a puddle of embarrassment.
