    I know it doesn't help ...but my two english bulldogs Bella and Daddy will actually have fights over who gets to eat the kitty poop if Angel happens to have done it in the yard.

    Lets just say that NEITHER of them are getting kisses after that!!!

    I haven't had a lot of issues with Babetty trying to eat poop, but when she does go for it I start feeding her some banana with her food. After a week or so she stops. I'm not sure if that will help if it's a dominance issue, but it's worth a try!

    Buster gets banana every morning. We are halfway through the food change to the same that Ruggles eats and still separate them when it is close to Buster's poop time. The only time Ruggles gets poop is if Buster is a little off schedule; for the most part Buster is very regular.

    Bruiser & Cha Cha

    Re: Hardest Thing to Teach

    Both at 6 months, potty training is difficult. I think my Bruiser gets it. My Cha Cha sure does not. Though, when I come home and give the stearn shriek, "Who pooped?!!!" She walks away in shame. Continues to do it day after day. I do not punish them, I only do big cheer leading sessions and treats for potty/poop outside. We have a doggie door to a porch, so they do have the ability to let themselves out.

    "Are you hungry?" They understand
    "Treats" they understand
    A good morning song- wakes them up, gets them stretching with sleepy eyes and excited for breakfast
    "Stop" they understand
    "Sit" Cha Cha understands, bruiser does not
    "Walk" they understand
    "No" they sometimes understand

    It seems like smaller dogs take longer to grasp the housebreaking deal. I have come to conclusion Junie does the best she can, so I must be on my A-gane
    She has made progress, so I give her kudos for that
