I'm with tonka for training methods.

What are you feeding the dog as it's main diet? This could actually have something to do with it, since many dogs will get into the poop eating habit because they are trying to get what they need by eating the poop and getting the nutrients they lost. This doesn't really sound like that's the problem, but it could be.

As for eating poo on walks, teaching leave it would be helpful:

You can add chopped parsley to his food it kills strong oder. Chop about a teaspoon and add to every meal.
What food do you feed. Some foods don't have enough nutrition in them so dogs will eat pooh trying to get it that way.
If you are already feeding a nutritional food then add yogurt or keefer to each meal. It helps them break down and absorb the nutrition from the food.
If you look up the packaged things that are supposed to stop pooh eating you will find a lot of bad ingredients an then some better ones that are mostly parsley and yogurt enzymes. Keefer is a liquid yogurt that is fermented and has more active cultures then yogurt.

Wow, it's been way to long since I came back to this thread! He has been doing this since I got him in September. He is on Blue Buffalo, so according to what I have read, nutrition shouldn't be the issue.

As to controlling him on a leash, there is no way in hell I'm going to pull/tug/yank on a leash that is connected to my dogs neck. The purpose of the walk is so that he can get out an experience a bit of the world rather than just my back yard. He trots along next to me with his nose in the dirt the whole time. When he comes across poop, he snatches it up. Since I don't really want to touch it, i'm not reaching in his mouth to torture him and pull it out.

I have recently been working on "Drop it" and it works fine with toys, but I guess poo is something way more valuable to him. For now, I'll try some of the method mentioned in these posts.

Thanks guys!

Since I have to follow my dogs around to get them the second they finish pooping its hard when our 2 small are out at the same time and they both do it. Thankfully our 3rd doesn't,. Tried everything vet or pet owners suggested, the pumpkin, pineapple, msg, Dis-Taste, cayenne on the poop....nothing. I don't know if mint flavored people toothpaste is ok. Chopped parsley in cheese or peanut butter?
