Does Your Bichon Frise Eat His Own Poop?
I'm Janet Combs
My mother bred and raised Bichon Frises for 23 years. I have been a Bichon Frise breeder for 13 years. Between what my mother
taught me and my own personal experience I know a little something about Bichons.
The reason I'm addressing this issue is because, over the years I've had quite a few people ask me; "How do I stop my Bichon Frise from eating his own poop?"
This is a habit that many dogs (of all breeds) develop.
Well, keep the faith! Help is on the way.
There are a couple of things you can do to break your dog of this nasty habit.
One: Try putting some diced pineapple in with his food. Yes, I said diced pineapple. About 2-3 teaspoons. When the pineapple is
digested it produces an enzyme which deters the dog from, you know, doing what we're trying to make him stop. Some Bichons may
not eat pineapple. Our little male, Walker will eat just about anything. But, our female, Annie, is very finnicky. But, I think most Bichons will go for it.
Two: If, for whatever reason, the pineapple doesn't do the trick, there is a product called "Deter" which has the same
effect. Give him 1-2 tablets per day (depending on size) for two weeks. It has been proven to be effective. You can find it at a discount price at www.dog.com.
I hope I have been of some help. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to email me at jennasgifts.cinci.rr.com
Wishing you and your Bichon happiness always,
