Hi guys,

First time poster here, my new puppy Hector (10weeks old) has just started eating his poop and doesn't seem to be able to stop. Is there anything we can do to help him stop this please? Thanks in advance! X

Sometimes it's a bad habit, but sometimes, they are trying to get more beneficial bacteria in their system. You could try Probios powder, and see if it helps - it's under $15 for a small tub of it. I get it at a feed supply place - it's good for all kinds of animals.

If that's not the problem, I'd immediately clean the yard after he goes, so there's nothing there to eat!

you might want to talk to your vet about it and look at his diet.  However, I would just resign yourself to following him around till he poops and pick up immediately.
