While you look on in shock and horror as you watch your dog down a mouthful of poop, you'll get some solace in the fact that you are not alone. Puppies in particular are drawn to feces, perhaps because they put everything in their mouths and feces just add to the intrigue, but they usually grow out of the habit by 6 months of age. Although gross, stool eating is generally considered harmless in a healthy dog free of intestinal parasites, especially if he’s eating his own stools that are less than two to three days old, says Benjamin L.

However, there is a slight risk your dog could develop an intestinal infection if he already has such an infection and is eating his own stools that are five days or older, which increases the intestinal parasite load. To get this behavior under control, if your dog eats poop frequently and isn’t a puppy or nursing mom, don’t yell at him — and certainly don’t rub his nose in feces, which is inhumane — as this could inadvertently cause him to become compulsive about this behavior, Reid says. You can also add taste deterrents to his diet, as they can make poop less palatable, or apply taste deterrents to feces in your yard, along your walking routes, or even in litterboxes if he’s eating cat poop — better yet, move the litterboxes out of his reach.

I think that dogs also like to eat poop because it tastes like the food that the dog who pooped ate.
