He is a adult yeah, and he has been on cheap food when he was about 1 yr old with no problems but now he has matured he is going faster and working harder on the cheap food, I switched his food from the cheap one to royal canin when I could, he has been off it now for almost a 1 year, as he was raised on royal canin puppy and then spent 6 months on this one and went back to royal canin, what I am thinking of doing though is that as you can buy greyhound food for quite cheap is giving him some of the greyhound food in the morning and giving him the other food in the evening so that he can get a higher energy food aswell. He has been tried before on a greyhound food for a month, I didn't like it as he got skinnier so again he was fed on royal canin hopefully if I mix it he will be ok and he can get the best of both worlds if you get what I mean.

That's probably the best way to go by mixing it rather than split the greyhound food for the morning time andgiving the cheaper food at night, So yes try mixing it for both meals and see how you go with that

I always called it being a turd burglar. That other word is pretty big and contains no variation of the word poop that I'm familiar with .

I had a similar problem with Nipper ( she's a girl BTW! and I racked my brains as to what might be causing it She was on Bakers puppy kibble it was horrendous to say the least and what ever brand she had after that she continued to do this foul behaviour She had probably formed a habit by now Then I thought no it must be because she's a bitch and maybe when they have pups they eat the after birth and clear up any poo the new born pups may produce! But I also thought well if I teach her to leave it and don't touch not yours! then I might get some where and she knows both commands very well so my suggestion is to teach her 'leave it' in a firm tone of voice then you will make head way. Also if you live in the uk I would suggest you switch to CSJ all natrual dry dog food it's really cheap to buy at 9.99 a 15 kg sack It's also sold in some other countries to but not America ATB. HTH and almost forgot to Df Enjoy

Lucy goes just after cat poop as far as I can tell. Sometimes when some doesn't pick up their dogs' poop she just ignores it. We have A LOT of out door cat's in our neighborhood. So I just try to steer her away from where they have scratched over. She'll grab a chicken bone from around the many construction sites, but those crunch I am sure to let her chew those completely. Sometimes if I hurry her around she will drop part. So I try to do that when I see she's grabbed something.

Hi Again you are welcome I forgot to add Nipper for a period of time used to eat hers but after working with her in my back yard and succesfully stopping her eating her own cack by 12 weeks old when I started to take her for walks she would do hers and not touch it but then to my horror she would eat other dogs poop :ekk: one day she waited behind this dog and as it was doing poops Nipper was ready to catch it freshly made!! But thank goodness my timing and command was spot on I did have to shout it though but it worked

It took many months after that and a eagle eye to stop her! But no Nipper would suss that one out and check round the back of trees etc where I couldn't see her or wait till I was talking with someone meaning I had took my eyes off her for a split second and give her a oppurtunity ( Cause dogs are oppurtunists!)to chomp away! Who says dogs are dumb far from it So I took away some of her pleasures, like being off leash on a walk and greeting other dogs ( she is well socialised though) and I kept this up for 2 weeks then rewrote the rules ( not to suit her though!)

I would follow her every where outside behind trees and a good firm No when she sniffed too long at any poop and when talking to someone I would explain to them Iam not being rude but Iam watching my dog as it has a habit of eating poop! and eventually because of the things I had put in place then modified a bit Later on
proved succesfull now she will just sniff at poo like a normal dog would do. Fair enough She has been on CSJ about 2 months now, and she had stopped eating poop over 6 months ago. One happy customer quoted they had a dog that was a real pig over eating poop. She switched to CSJ and her dog stopped eating poop! So what Iam saying is I think by me swiching her over to CSJ has helped keep the training topped up! I no longer have to say Leave it etc, only occasionaly

Can I ask the brand of dogfood your dog is on how much it is and the weight of the sack (If it's dry dog food that is ) ? ATB
