Eeeeeuuuugghhhhhhhhh!!!! Second time in a week!!
Ok, so what's the deal with fox poo, I understand it must smell great to a dog but do they ever 'grow out' of wanting to roll in it and why all the neck area, you know just where the collar is and you have to touch!!

I have not been putting Riley's equafleece on now weather is better but regretted it a lot as I watched in horror as he wriggled around in great joy rubbing his neck in it. Is this a puppy thing or a dog thing, is it worse at particular times on the year or do I just need to get over it and accept it!!:eek:

Yours hopefully
Tracey

Milly loves it along with rolling in cats scent and other decaying items!!!

Monty is pretty good and doesn't seem to do it .

I have wrote about it briefly on our "why does my cockapoo" article on our website:

Many dogs find it hard to resist the temptation of Fox poo or such like. It stems way back to their origins where they used to roll in poo etc… to disguise their scent when hunting. Or as a marker to other dogs that they have found something interesting or that it is theirs. At the end of the day it usually results in us poor owners having the embarrassment of the walk home with a stinky doggy, praying that no-one stops us for a chat or even worse to stroke our dogs.

A good tip however is to wash a poo covered dog in shampoo and then in tomato ketchup as it neutralises the smell. Just remember to rinse it off well though as a Tomato ketchup dog is not going to do your sofas any good!

Tilly and Riley are very similar age so perhaps we could 'hope' it's that! Trouble is they are so quick, before you know it they are rolling and then too late, one pongy and manky looking dog, good luck!

I 100% agree with you,
Tilly was marked all down the left side of her face before I even noticed what she was doing,
Jesus to think then I leave her lick my face, imagine what they're eating that we can't see.😳😳😳😳
