Experiment. Will this work?

You know your dog has done it at least once. Come on admit it. If you haven't seen it done then you know it's probably happened when you weren't around to see it. Eating poop. This is absolutely one the most disgusting things ever! For some reason I find myself in a household with four dogs who keep doing it, ugh!!

I could use this post to tell you all of the scientific reasons that dogs do this. I could use this post to tell you all of the diet changes or behavioral modifications that you can use to stop it, but I'm not going to. I'll let you do a simple google search online for it (actually called "coprophagia") and you'll find all of that. What I'm going to do is let you in on my struggle. I've done all of those things and more and if I see one more of my dogs eat poop I'm going to get sick.

I did it. I went for it. I ordered a product online called For-bid. Heard of it before but never used it. It is suppose to make the poop taste bad (wouldn't you think it did already?) and the dogs won't eat it. It got delivered today. After using it for about 5-6 days it is suppose to curb the behavior for about 5-6 months. So now, let the experiment begin.....

Side Note: This is suppose to only help if you have a controlled environment of which dogs are around. Meaning this will not keep your dog from eating other's dogs' poop at the park or your neighbor, it is only suppose to deter from the dog that is actually taking the supplement. Since my girls eat each others it should work.
