Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Disgusting as it is to us, coprophagy seems to do most healthy, vaccinated dogs little harm apart from occasional digestive upset and sometimes a parasite or two.
If the poop eating habit isn’t well established, it may die away on its own, provided your dog has no further opportunities to practice it. With Domesticated dogs, it is not a normal or necessary part of their digestive process, but it is a normal behavior in mother dogs with pups when cleaning.
Dogs who suffer from malabsorption syndromes, such as exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, will sometimes eat their own stool. The more excited and agitated you get around the poop, and over the poop eating, the more confused your dog will get about the practice.
Some dogs will continue or emulate this cleaning behaviour in a misguided attempt to clean either the yard or their crate.


But there are unfortunately a number of kibble formulations that serve to give your dogs calories and the feeling of being full, with little else.
When you have a dog boarding the last thing we want to facilitate is them eating their own poop, even if they did do so before.
If your dog is eating their own stool while being served volumes of a commercial dog food, verify the quality.
The first time you catch them doing a furtive little sniff and even lick, we yell excitedly and collect the poop and put it away. Next thing you know you spot your dog excitedly eating away, you go to look and realize it’s their poop.
We know that puppy store dogs tend to eat their own stool much more frequently than others.


Dogs forced to eliminate in their own area (ie cage) will eat their stools rather than live amongst it. In our experience of seeing guests at the dog hotel who arrive with them, it works for some, not others.
