There's a variety of reasons why your dog could be doing it. If your dog has been examined by a vet and has been given a clean bill of health, then probably the best thing to do is just keep the dog from having access to any poop (if it's in your yard). Sometimes they like to eat it because it's a game between them and you to see how much of it they can eat before you chase them away. If your dog is eating it's own poop, then make sure you're keeping it picked up and not letting it be available to "snack on". I had a coonhound that loved it (whether it was hers or some other pet's. I tried every thing available to put in their food, but the only thing I found that worked was to give her cooked zucchini about twice a week. When I first started giving it to her, I did it every other day for a couple of weeks. Then I went to every third day for several months. Eventually, I got to once a week. It must make their stool smell something awful because when I did feed it to her and then she'd smell her poop, she would pull her head away from it like it was the worst stuff she ever smelled. I even fed it to my cats, and it kept her away from their litterbox. It didn't stop her entirely from eating poop when we were out on a walk, but I'd say the zucchini cut that down to 50%. She ate about 1 cup of food a day, and I would only add about 1/4 cup zucchini to it. I tried raw zucchini and it seemed to work just as well, but she didn't care much for it. But she sure loved it cooked. Hope this is some help.
