Dog Eating Faeces is the great unanswered question - why on earth do dogs eat their own and other
dog's faeces!? I have no idea and I am afraid Flat Coated Retrievers fall into the
category of eating their own and other dog's poo (it's called coprophagia). Apart from not being nice and making your dog smell dog eating faeces can be a health
risk if, for instance the dog faeces are infected with worms. Fortunately, there are a few
ways to avoid dogs eating faeces:
• In an ideal world every dog owner would clear up after their dog has had a toilet - then
there would be less mess in our beautiful parks, by the seaside and on the street - and less
poo for dogs with this dog eating faeces disgusting habit to eat! Most Councils provide free doggy bags or
you can buy special bags or a pooper scooper.
Whilst my four legged companion sat beside me I wrote a book which tells the story of
The Drummer Boy.
This novel is about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.
Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty's Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.

• Try giving your dog a small piece of pineapple or courgette each day - they dislike the taste of this
in faeces. This should stop your dog eating faeces.
• Purchase a muzzle:
your dog will still be able to run around the beach, field, park etc quite happily and you
need not worry about the dog eating faeces. It will also stop your dog poking about at dead animals and in other
places you would rather its nose did not get into!
