My dobes have always loved to eat horse poop. The greener the better. I think they roll in it to disguise their smell. Strange because I can smell them a block away when they do that.

I live in an area that has many horse stables and the riders frequent the trails we walk. I don't let Sam eat horse poop (even though he loves it) because of the wormers/meds horses may take. I've read Ivermectin is toxic to dogs and can cause serious health issues, even death.

One of my dogs love it and one hates it! I think it's just something they do, I don't think anyone is 100% sure there are just theories. You could just teach 'Leave it' or try one of those compressed air cans to spook him off it.

My OH is convinced its because they get attention from rolling in it :D

My first Dobe Eddie used to love smearing fox poo all over his face much to the disgust of hubby & I. You could smell it for days even after a thorough clean. He used to like eating it too along with rabbit droppings & raiding the cats litter tray.

Amber's favourite delicacy was rabbit droppings, she'd find a huge pile & literally hoover it up until she made herself sick.

Homer, my current dobe has no interest at all, he just wants to eat whatever left the poo

Dobes really are the most disgusting creatures at times, but it's all part of their charm :D
