|Olive oil contains omega 3's, which are essential to maintaining healthy skin and coat. Grain fed livestock is low in O3s to start with, and O3s are easily destroyed in processing. Since the vast majority of livestock is grain fed this makes most diets deficient in omega 3's. Supplementing can really do wonders. You do need to balance O3s with vitamin E, which is why most people use salmon oil instead of olive oil. Salmon oil naturally contains both.
I have heard of the pineapple trick, but never used it. If my dog obsessively consumed his poop because he thought it was delicious, I would try it. You know why your dog is eating poop, though. Gross as it is, you're actually getting information on his emotional state. That can be very useful, and I would hesitate to remove the symptom without focusing on the cause (fear).
