Q. My 5 month old 30 lb bull terrier eats my other dog's poop but not her own and also poops and pees in her crate. What can I do?
A. Have her seen by your vet to rule out medical causes. Reinforce crate training (again if necessary). The crate should only be big enough for her to stand, turn around and lay down. Put her on a strict schedule for going outside. She goes out FIRST thing in the morning. Pick a spot outside and wait. No walks until she goes. Praise and reward her when she goes. Place her back in the crate or on a leash attached to your hip so you can watch for her cues to go. Take up the water 2 hours before bedtime and take her out right before bedtime. Be patient. Be consistent. Keep her away from other dog's feces. Puppies usually outgrow the behavior (called coprophagia). Review her diet and confirm she is getting enough food. You can purchase a food additive called FOR-BID from your vet. It imparts a bitter taste to stool when sprinkled on food.
