yes, I had a Cocker Spaniel who did this. The vet suggested I buy MSG ( it was in a container like a salt shaker in the seasonings aisle) It somehow makes the poop taste bad or something ( I really would have thought it already did). Worked great, stopped that nasty habit

Awesome! Thx for suggestion. Ya wouldn't poop taste awful?!?!! But we gotta make it grosser I guess. Do u just sprinkle any amount on food or does it depend on weight? I have four dogs and others don't do that. She was adopted from an awful pet store and they never cleaned the cages properly so I think she ended up just"cleaning" it herself and thinks that what she supposed to.do. but it's been almost 4 years! I'm definitely gonna call vet and see if she can have that. She almost died 2 weeks ago her body shut down and after over 1400 dollars we found out has addisons disease so has to be on expensive meds rest of life so gotta make sure it won't interfere with that. Thanks again

good idea to check with your Vet. But when I did it, I just sprinkled liberally (you could def see a white powder on top of the food.) It didn't matter to me if the other dogs ate it, figured it wouldn't hurt them. I didn't do it for very long either. Maybe a few weeks. Either the MSG fixed the imbalance that was causing it, or the dog just lost he taste for it.

It's called "copaphragia" I believe and they actually make a med you can feed them that prevents them from eating their poop - not sure if you'd have to feed it to all the dogs or not.

Good link thx I've tried an OTC pill forget name of it. Didn't help. Maybe have different kind? It was a brand they sell at wags, walmart etc luckily she has never eaten any of the other dogs poop. Sometimes she doesn't do it guess not always yummy
