Even well trained house dogs will have accidents, so when this happens, teach your dog not to eat his own poop by showing him that is not what you want him to do, instead show the dog that he should just leave the poop where it is until you are able to come clean it up.
  2. When you notice your dog smelling poop his own poop, distract him and give him a reward for being obedient. Make sure that you are consistently rewarding your dog for his good behavior. Your dog will learn that smelling and eating poop is not pleasing to his owner and so he will stop doing that behavior just for the reward he knows that he will receive.
