There is also the possibility that the dog has been punished for pooping in the wrong place, so she is trying to hide it, by eating it, so she won't get punished. Best to just clean it up as soon as possible and don't make a big deal about it. Prevention is better than punishment.

Can you crate her? Does she poop in her crate? Have you tried taking her on a long walk just before bedtime so she takes care of business outside?

Good suggestions. We have tried the walk, no results. Putting them out in a fenced area after dinner is helpful.
I have no idea what happened to her. But I am sure none of it was good. She panicks when she has done something wrong and it takes 30 minutes to calm her down.

This was my (obvious) question too. Lol

I guess you missed the part where I said it happens at night. So unless one of us senior citizens are on guard 24/7 this cannot happen.

No Jaime, this is not funny. No es chistoso.

That still doesn't make sense to me. If you have time to add hot sauce, why can't you just pick it up?

I think OP is using it during the day to deter the pup from eating it, so when she poops at night she won't want to eat it even when there is no hot sauce on it.

I'm not too familiar with your story or these pups, but I would highly recommend crating them if they do not elimate in their crates. I'm not sure what your schedule looks like, but we potty our pup 2-4 times during the night.

Right after pooping in the yard (supervised), I call Bear over and give him lots of love and praise. So now whenever he does his business, he'll point out all his "presents" to me. "Look! Ma! I did #2! Now clean it up!!!" This might help, if they are eating the poop to hide the evidence and avoid punishment.

I understand that this happens at night, during unsupervised time, so perhaps not allowing the pups on the terrace unsupervised until they break the habit might be in your best interest.

Depending on the texture of the flooring, you might want to put un-diluted white vinegar on it and let it sit over night and scrub it down in the morning.

I wish you the best of luck! I know it must be frustrating.

I have tried EVERYTHING there is to try in an attempt to stop Schatzi from eating poop. So I pick it up as soon as it hits the ground. Crates at night. But I realize that if it is happening in the middle of the night there's not much to do about it.

Sorry I couldn't tell you I succeeded!

Now that is a very good question Jaime.
1. It happens at night usually.
2. It is the gardener's job to pick up poop. I am not a poop person, and I fortunately don't have to be.
3. The gardener is here 4 hours a day 5 days a week.
4. Some people vomit if they have to pick up poo. I am one of them.
5. My husband has a bad back is 75 and can't bend over very well.
6. The addition of hot sauce is after a bite has been taken so that it does not happen again, or if poop is noticed on the terrace by me, I will lace it with hot sauce until a poo person comes along.

Are we all clear now?

My dog does not eat his own poop, only eats others poop. Cat poop apparently tastes the best as it is the smelliest. Sometimes he avoids the poop, other times he eats it. Go figure.
