Default eating feces

I have 2 Yorkie|Maltese crosses who just turned 1 year (one female and
one male - the female seems to be the dominant one). Sometime after
housebreaking they started to eat the female's feces when outdoors.
This problem has grown to the point where the male is starting to eat
his too and other visiting dogs' feces (even in the process of going!)
We are right on the spot about 90% of the time to pick it up, but there
are times when you are out in the yard, take your eyes off them for
about a minute and then its too late. We have tried almost everything
possible according to our veterinarian including: Forbid, pumpkin,
plain certs candies, another over-the counter tablet, sprinkling with
tobasco, and currently we are sprinkling with ceyanne pepper. This
certainly prevents them at the time from consuming the feces, but they
munch away at those times when I am not 'johnny on the spot' to
sprinkle with the pepper. On walks, they try to pick up old feces from
other dogs as well. This is a real nuisance and probably not very
healthy for the dogs. I would really appreciate anyone's advice on a
product or method to get them out of this habit.

The only way to prevent it is to make the poo "taste bad" to the dog.
There are products you can buy that you add to his food that are
supposed to do this. (AFAIK)

VERY DANGEROUS. If the dogs eat Raccoon feces, even a little bit, it
could transmit raccoon roundworm to them - a disease which is deadly to
both them AND YOU!!!!

I won't post all the info here, but do some reasearch, it's pretty
scary to say the least.

My rescue poodle did this. He would poop and turn around and eat it!
Not sure if it is the current food or if he grew out of it. Fig
newtons will make it smell or taste bad. A couple a day should do it
for your dogs. See if it helps then the other feces on walks .. is
another thing. It was hard though since my old poodle has bad
allergies and could not share in the treat

Default eating feces

I was waiting for some good advise on here, but I see this is not a
serious sight, I have a ShizTzu that does the same thing, have tried for
11 years to keep her from eating her poop, the only thing that works for
me is to be in yard with my poop scooper while she poops, pick it up and
dispose of it. Oh, well, just another problem when you have pets.
