Bailey is 18 months old and lately all he wants to do is go in our backyard and eat "rabbit poop". We stop him as soon as we can, but we're getting very frustrated because we never know now if he cries to go out to make or if he just wants to eat "poop" - does anyone have this problem? Would appreciate some help with this problem. :(

Before we got Chloe, we often had rabbits in our backyard and we didn't even realise how much rabbit poo there was. Our fence isn't in the best shape so we used chicken wire to block any open spots when we got Chloe, so she couldn't sneak out. This also keeps the rabbits out, so no more rabbit poo in our backyard.

Of course, Chloe is always able to find it on her walks. It is so small and she is so quick that it is impossible to stop her. It must taste delicious, yuck!

Hi Marlene, I know that to us eating any kind of poo is disgusting but to dogs its quite a natural thing to do I'm afraid (not their own or other dog poo though)
Dogs seem to love any kind of poo produced by non meat eating animals and it won't harm Bailey in any way, rabbit poo will only be grass after all.:)

So I would stop worrying about it as it is impossible to watch him every second to make sure he doesn't do it.
My dog eats, rabbit, sheep, duck and goose poo and rolls in fox poo.............LOVELY!!!!;)
