Oh my...Libby dug up some of her poo and ate it! Is this normal???
Yes.....disgusting,but normal. A lot of pups eat other dogs poo, their own poo, other animal poo.....some on this Forum are really experienced in this and will come along to help you.
FORTUNATELY, I am not one of them.....but wanted you to know right away that is is normal!
Yes totally normal , sorry , dogs can be awful sometimes lol . I'm sure someone will have ideas how to stop it or at least discourage it .
My lab just likes eating my other dogs poo , so I make sure Sam goes out first
Completely normal but disgusting haha. When I was studying I read in my course notes that one reason is because they arent getting enough of a certain nutrient, or also theyre trying to replenish enzymes so they can digest their food properly. Either way its gross lol, especially when they try and kiss you after Champ did this for ages, but as he got a bit older he just stopped.
^^^please someone correct me if i'm wrong but i'm sure the reason is along those lines ^^^
Here's a article which may help you:

Hi yes all perfectly normal - I have a poop guzzling expert! Not his own,but anything that come out of a rabbit or fox are particular favourites (as well as rolling n the fox poop first!). I carry either chicken or cut up hot dog sausage and use these to recall him (we are working on his recall currently), but we do have to get his lead on him otherwise he gobbles the treats and then legs it back to the tasty morsel he left
Yup....Bramble as a young pup would eat her own poo..drove me mad! I was forever following her with with poo bags and treats...she eventually grew out of it at around 5 months old, however fox poo...well that is a work in progress...
Sorry I haven't replied sooner, been too busy with a new puppy to look at the replies lol...jokes, it's not so bad! Thank you for the reassurance I'll read that link now.
