Q. I have 2 Manchester Terrier siblings that eat their stool. I have tried Forbid, Distaste and other deterrent products. I keep stool picked up. HELP!!!

A. Some dogs just never ditch the bad habit of eating stools. Since you have two siblings here, it might even be a competition or game... As you have tried all the taste changing products unsuccessfully, you may want to consult with a veterinary behavioral specialist, or simply only let them out with basket muzzles, so they cannot eat feces.
