My Cocker Spaniels Have A Disgusting Habit
by M Carol
I have two cocker spaniels - both are 24 weeks old. They keep eating their, and my other dogs', pooh!
We clean up their mess as soon as possible, but they actually try to eat it as my other dog's are pooing! They are fed excellent food from the vets.
Why do they do this and how can I stop this disgusting habit?

Your puppies are indulging in what's known as coprophagia - this is the official term for 'dogs eating poop'.
I agree, it's quite disgusting, but it is fairly common, especially in puppies.
