Clearly, I love my pets. One might even consider me to be borderline obsessed with The Grump. I have an extra special bond with that little guy that just melts my heart. Even with my unconditional love for him, I am not a fan of some of his habits. You see, The Grump enjoys to eat poop. He’s a poop-eater. Since we have two dogs, we aren’t sure if he’s eating his own or Hilo’s, but we catch him quite often. Ugh, I apologize for this topic, but if you have a poop-eater, you will want to read on!

We have a large backyard with lots of grass and space. To avoid having to hunt for doggie landmines, my hubby set up a nice structured area for them to go. Their potty contains gravel and it’s super convenient when it comes time for clean up. But, it also seems to make it extra convenient for Grump to indulge in his bad behavior.

I recently had the opportunity to be included in on an interview with Alyse from Only Natural Pet. Only Natural Pet has over 200 products that contain completely natural ingredients. They have an entire holistic library to help educate the customer and allow them do their own research regarding the products. Their staff is thoroughly trained and even required to attend a form of CE (continuing education) about the products and formulation changes. That is impressive! Employee knowledge is even one of the top reasons many people visit the store. It’s clear that they all really care about the brand and pets in general.

During our conversation with Alyse, we were able to ask questions. I asked about the poop-eating. She explained a few of the reasons as to why this might be happening. I was beyond impressed with her knowledge on the topic. Only one of the possible reasons fit with Grump and that was that it smelled like food. This is due to the food going through the animal’s digestive tract too quickly and not being fully digested. Turns out that they have a product that helps with this issue. We can safely give it to both dogs and possibly fix this behavioral problem!

We are so excited to see how this works out for us. Not only that, but they have so many other products that we cannot wait to try. Treats, food, and so many other holistic items for pets are all available from Only Natural Pet.

    1. I will take a picture once the hubby thoroughly cleans it!! It is really nice! It’s also fenced off so the dogs don’t have automatic access to the yard. Sometimes we don’t like them running around in the mud.

    Even at almost 12 years old, my dog definitely has some behavioral issues we’d love to help rid him of–a nasty dirty Kleenex eating habit is one of them!

  21. Your Grump is too cute! It’s so amazing that animal health and nutrition has been studied that well that there are healthy ways to stop behavior which doesn’t have to involve any harsh training, painful surgeries, or anything else more complicated. What Alyse said makes a lot of sense. Glad you could figure out the issue and find the right solution!
