I know it's gross, but I don't know what to do. Anyone else have this problem with their Corgi? He's been doing it ever since we got him and I can't get him to stop. I watch him as he goes and pick it up quickly, but I want to be able to let him out and not have to worry about watching his every move. Anyone have any advice? Thanks in advance!
Hi Danielle, Frank is young and needs absolute supervision, always take him out on a leash, including the backyard, he needs to learn to respect the leash and understand when the leash is on, it's business his focus should be on you at all times. When you cannot watch him, put him in a crate.
When he picks up the poop and proceed to eat it, say drop it and use your fingers to dig Mr Hanky out of his mouth, pull him away from the remaining fragments. Practice "leave it" and "drop it". Good luck!
Our usual brand of dog food was not there, so I took a chance on a can
of El Cheapo.
When I opened it there were blobs of fat all thorough it. Ewwww! I can’t feed this to my precious corgis! As I held the can over the garbage I noticed that it said “chicken and rice”. Wait-a-minute. Rice? Sure enough, the blobs of ‘fat’ were grains of rice. The doggies liked it just fine. Duh!
Several of my Corgis over the years did this. I tried every product and nothing worked until Nasty Habit. I sound like a commercial, but I have nothing to do with the product except be grateful for it every day! My dog can kiss me without that awful breath. Nasty Habit is a liver flavored tablet that you add to dinner daily. If you have more than one dog, you need to use a tablet daily for each of them. My dogs will eat it plain as their morning treat. Initially, it worked like a charm. Then over time, less effective. So I doubled and then tripled the dose, 3 tabs with dinner. This has worked perfectly to the point that we slowly reduced from 3 to 2 and now 1 is working 100% of the time. Within another few months I'm going to try to stop it altogether, but I'm afraid of messing w. success. One a day works for me!
If you try it, let me know how it works for you. I think I tried it because it got more positive reviews on Amazon than any of the other products out there.
@Donna - wow. anise seed. never heard that before. and of course your dog will eat food sprinkled with anise seed (even tho I wouldn't, haha) because your dog's a corgi! a corgi will just about anything, including poop...
thanks for the tip. i'll try it.
