Edited to add: regarding the Celiac question: let me tell you, it is very easy to accidentally allow the creatures who live with you to lick you on the face (especially when those creatures are wiggly balls of happiness). ;-) It doesn't seem like a big deal, but when you deal with it everyday it is much simpler to find a food that is safe for everyone (and I don't get sick as often).
But you don't swallow their drool. I have friends with celiac disease and it's specifically related to food they eat, not what they handle or get on their skin.

Everyone has different thresholds with regard to how much gluten they can tolerate. Aside from the gastro. symptoms, celiac also manifests in the skin form for me, Dermatitis Herpetiformis. Individuals with "DH" are much more sensitive to gluten touching their skin. As far as the drool goes: my dogs sometimes get me on the lips. Celiac can be triggered by gluten which touches any kind of mucous membrane. You might be surprised how easily gluten can get into your mouth! My goal is to minimize how much I get sick; removing gluten from my dogs diet helped me and hasn't seemed to hurt them (they've been grain free for 3+ years).

I will search for some pictures of her!

These photos are fairly recent, though it was clearly much warmer outside than it is now! Ok excluding the one in the snow: that was last winter.

I just cut Riley down a little bit because he wasn't getting enough exercise during the week of the hurricane rain. Literally the next day after I cut him down he started eating poop! I've never seen him do that before and I immediately put him back up after a couple days and he stopped. So weird!

Chaos, beautiful dog! She is big. She should meet Max, our other really big GR. I think he's 27 inches at the shoulder. Hope everything works out ok--please come back and let us know.

When trying to find the ideal size for your dog don't worry about weight. It is more important to go by how they look.
When it comes to diet poop eating usually develops from the lack of nutritional needs vs. being hungry.
You may see them eat it if they are bored. Just don't let it become a habit.
Lets just face it dogs are animals and will eat and roll in anything disgusting.
There mothers ate theirs when they were babies.
The only real fix is clean it up as soon as they go. Make sure you offer a good diet no matter how little they need. Don't make a fuss when they eat it. Sometime your attention will attract them as negative eeeewww, yuck is still attention.

Buddy is always hungry and is a table/counter surfer. He already weights 95 pounds- He gained 5 pounds over the summ because he does not do hot weather! So in a month or 2 he should be 88-90 pounds. I won't cut his intake he will just get more exercise. His ortho. weight wants him at no higher than 90- Long term! He does not need to eat more food- He gets 2 cups of kibble daily plus fresh fruits and veggies. His coat and body show he is fine so the can be hungry!

Buddy and the yorkies love deer raisinettes! They will also eat other animal poop but deer is their fave! So I try to stay on top of the yard about that. Thankfully they don't like their own or cat poop. If she like her own poop- Clean it up ASAP.

Have you tried food additives to discourage the poop eating such as pineapple, etc.?

Chaos, Such cute pictures. She sure does look happy. Those pictures are difficult to use if you are looking for a size opinion. Can't use the snow pic as it is to long ago. Send one from top and side standing up could help.
