Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Cat feces probably attracts dogs because cat food is higher in protein and fat than dog food, and consequently cat feces is, too. 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.
Whenever he saw a cat issue Muggsy adored cat poop and used to head for the box at a dead run.


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. Train yourself to hear those little cat feet going scritch scritch scritch, and scoop the poop as soon as kitten’s done.


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.
Result: poop snacking is on what is technically known as a variable intermittent reinforcement schedule, which is what trainers use whenever they want to produce an extremely persistent, lasting behavior.
