    Jenn and Ducka plus other theories... watching their mother's doing this when the dog is a puppy, all the food hasn't been digested (such as blueberries as was the case with my dogs)...


    Good luck and keep your yard very clean.  That is what worked for me.

    Hungry?

    I have read the if your dog is doing this he is missing nutrients from their diet.

    I have to agree with Jenn. He is missing nutrients in his diet. You might try  to feed him a more natural diet and give him a childs Vitamin tablet once a day!

    poop smells like dogfood.

    dogfood or catfood is digested. The byprduct may somewhat smell like what is eaten. I think the dog`s sense of smell is selective.

    It's  NOT  the  dog's  Fault  it  eats   poo, It's  the  LAZY  OWNER  that  has  not  taken  the  time  to  train  the  dog  !
