Poop eating and peeing on the terrace

One of our new adoptees, the nervous one, after 11 days has not mastered the idea that she can not pee or poop on the terrace which is tiled.
I have tried wiping the area down with vinegar, no change.
As for poop eating, this just makes me sick. Especially when she wants to kiss us.
I tried hot sauce on the poop. Well, she's a Mexican golden so, that was a condiment.
Today I sprinkled hot chili peppers on the poop and am awaiting results.

Both these dogs are getting vitamins, and moringa food supplement. I have no idea why the girl is doing these very unpleasant things.

The boy, Henry has pica and has been eating bits of fake charcoal from the firelog set.

Any ideas?????

Forgive me if I'm missing something but...instead of adding hot sauce to the poop why not just pick it up and remove temptation?

Sorry you are having this problem.
My vet has a theory that you can use MSG (meat tenderizer) in their food to make poop taste terrible. I've not had much luck, but you could always try it since it doesn't cost much. I've found the best way is just stay on top of removing poop as fast as possible. You might want to try adding vegies to their diet like green beans. Maybe something is lacking from her diet. It might just take time since she is so nervous. Sorry I'm not familiar with what to do about pica. Sounds like your dogs have been through a lot in their young lives. It make take lots of time. Thanks for your hard work, sounds like they have a wonderful life now!

Well, the problem is that they have decided to sleep on the terrace, and not in their crates. This generally happens at night. So therein lies the problem. The pooping, peeing and poop eating happen at night, not within eyesight of us.

Thank you for the compliment. We are new at this and have only raised puppies who were never abused or abandoned.

Pica is an odd quirk of dogs and people as well. They will eat grass, for example, not too exciting or other non edibles.

The theory is that they are missing something in their diet, and are self medicating.

ohhh that makes sense now . I've heard if you put a chunk of pineapple in their food it makes poop taste bad, some people on forum have tried it. I don't blame you, I don't have the stomach for puppy kisses after poop eating either

I recently read this article:

http://drsophiayin.com/blog/entry/co...eating-in-dogs

The results of the study claim that short of picking it up, there is no effective method of stopping this behavior, though you can manage it by using "Leave It" or calling the dog. Also, I'm not sure if your dog is spayed, but the author also mentions that 19% of spayed females are poop eaters, with some variability according to breed.

Lawd ha mercy. She is spayed, and she was in a dog shelter for 1500 dogs.
One of us is going to need a shrink.

poop eating

Our Toby occassionally likes to dine on poop also. I tend to stay near when I know it is their poop time, and pick it up ASAP. I know they also dine continuously on rabbit poop (and deer if they can find it), but there is little I can do about that.

One thing that always interested me. I was also told about putting pineapple or other things in their food to make their poop taste bad. But think about it - how can poop taste any worse?

Thanks for the laugh anyhow. BTW number one son's name is Toby. The human one.

It is pretty hard to imaging how poop can possibly taste any worse, even with hot chili pepper flakes on it. Think I'll pick up some habanero sauce today.

I love pineapple personally that makes NO sense to me.
