The best solution to stool eating, coprophagy, is cleaning them up before the
dog has a chance. You can try food additives, the home remedies pineapple juice
or canned pumpkin or the commercial products Forbid or Deter.

Why dogs do it is poorly understood. It may be diet related, but changing the
dog's diet might cause worse problems. Whatever problems it causes for the
owner, it doesn't seem to hurt the dog unless you are trying to clear up a worm
infestation.
