We had a neighbour who had that problem with her dog and it made the dog very ill. Her solution was to put a muzzle on it.
Whoaaaaa why the sudden aggressive attack on my post & quoting the law regarding dog fouling?????

The poster asked for opinions if anyone had ever had a dog that ate poo.

If i thought my pup was going to eat another dogs poo then yes I have no issue lifting the said poo to get it out of tbe way

Think you need to chill a bit...

It's not an attack. I don't see how you could possibly construe it in that way. You suggested your method for controlling the problem the OP has. I simply asked what you would go about doing that in a park where there are other dogs with some less than responsible owners.

You'd lift it. OK. That would be a formidable task in some places.

Well, the muzzle worked - her dog doesn't do it any more.

Does the dog still not do it if the muzzle is removed?

It's an option, of course, but it is management.

The original poster now has a few options to consider. Hopefully, s/he will find that one that suits their circumstances best

Do you see management being a problem? If so, can you explain how?

Whatever, the temporary muzzle was a fix.

Then it worked to train the dog - it doesn't usually unless the owner gets involved and trains alongside.

Nope, I don't see management as a problem if the owner doesn't. Most want a more permanent fix, but some do opt for the management route.

I'm glad the muzzle worked for your friend and the dog can now go muzzle free. I'm sure it's a relief for the owner

It is a permanent fix. More doesn't come into it. I just wondered about the "but" in "but it is management"

As it happens, we bumped into her yesterday at the local convenience store. Her dog and ours get along famously despite the difference in dimensions. Gallop around the park off lead. When we first met her, her dog was muzzled. Of course, we wrongly assumed it was because her dog was a biter. She then explained about it's poo consuming habit.

Anyway, all's well that ends well in that particular case.
