I’m Janet Combs
My mother bred and raised Bichon Frises for 23 years. I have been a Bichon Frise breeder for 13 years. Between what my mother taught me and my own personal experience I know a little something about Bichons.
The reason I’m addressing this issue is because, over the years
I’ve had quite a few people ask me; “How do I stop my Bichon Frise from eating his own poop?”
This is a habit that many dogs (of all breeds) develop.
Well, keep the faith! Help is on the way.
There are a couple of things you can do to break your dog of this nasty habit.
One: Try putting some diced pineapple in with his food.
Yes, I said diced pineapple. About 2-3 teaspoons.
When the pineapple is digested it produces an enzyme
which deters the dog from, you know, doing what we’re
trying to make him stop. Some Bichons may not eat
pineapple. Our little male, Walker will eat just about
anything. But, our female, Annie, is very finnicky. But,
I think most Bichons will go for it.
Two: If, for whatever reason, the pineapple doesn’t do the
trick, there is a product called “Deter” which has the
same effect. Give him 1-2 tablets per day (depending on
size) for two weeks. It has been proven to be effective.
You can find it at a discount price at http://www.dog.com.
I hope I have been of some help.
