From what I've read there are three main reasons (two of them linked).

One, he gets a reaction from you.

Two and three (linked) there is some nutritional reward in it, either from (a) a lack in his own diet or from (b) remaining rich nutrients in the poo.

Some people have had success adding either a daily spoonful of live natural yoghurt to their dog's diet, or some pineapple. Apparently there's something in pineapple that makes the taste bad, or perhaps more accurate to say worse!

Another thought. To us, it's a disgusting thing. It is, no doubt. But to a dog actually it's not unusual or abnormal.

Keep on with ”leave” and ”drop” though. If you need help on teaching these, the two videos below are very good.
