My 5 months Labrador dog is eating his own poop,help?

My next door neighbours kid used to get a little agitated when my 5 month Lab barked at them .Now they have got a great dane.I have practically grown up having dogs in my house where as this is the first time my neighbour has got a pup. The poor pup is just 50 days old and has a leash as heavy as he is ! Yesterday my hubby saw him eating his own poop. We are cordial but not very pally with the neighbours Please let me know how I can advise them not to tie such a small puppy without being preposterous

Take a print out from the net about care of a dane puppy and give it to the neighbour and say I thought this may help you bringing up ur pup as one can have a lot of problem with pups and we too had them. Say it with a smile.

Well it is not advisable for a puppy to be chained at such a young stage... tell them to get a crate... first timer pet owners need lots of advise...... Good luck Anita

And a big one.......let them invest a little....petting should NOT be done just to satisfy our needs/feelings.....they need to be equally satisfied......

Why these people buy pets...dont understand....most of Indians just buy pets....without any research....without even knowing the basic needs of the dog or whether the breeds gonna suit them....

Hey Anita,

this is more of a tactic to handle your neighbor than the pup itself. Though there are no one particular way to get this problem fixed, I am sure, you can try these things out. Probably when they come out for walk, you can casually walk out and start petting him and initiate a casual conversation where you can talk about the right ways of keeping a dane puppy. Also you can refer to some experts who can offer free advice. Its only by educating the Pet owner, this could be done. Your neighbors dog is not the only case, there are several good dogs which are not being maintained and cared the way they ought to be.. The only effective solution that can be nearest to success is creating and spreading awareness about handling them. Good luck to you..

hi,
2 months dane can not be aggressive.In fact most danes are never...(execeptions possible).Puppy eating its poop does not really fall under cruely heading.Unless prevented human infants jolly well do the same.Arvind, I thought you are hitting the nail on the head with your first line, but then you went round about.It sounds like you complained about my lab, and now let me get even with your dane.Also I know more......because it is me.It is preposterous from word go.Let us have good pets and great neighbours.Doggy neighbours can be great help..Within a month or two, the dane would outgrow the chain while we consider advising against.

Hello Anita,

Even my neighbours are the same as yours. The only difference is that they always had a dog but they treat each dog as slave. They do not give him enough food, do not take him for walk, always tie him in chain at the same place for days...Many times during raining, we have to call them to inform that their dog is in rain....
We've told them many times to take him for a walk, treat him as a family member but they believe in show off only that is why they keep dogs otherwise they do not like dogs.
They had a female GS previously who had some disease in ears. This people took her at some very far place and left there alone. But thank God that somebody informed Animal helpline and they came and took her with them....so she was rescued but their current dog is living like a slave which we can not see...

HI to the last comment, please report this to the enarest peta authorities. or call and report this cruelty to peta helpline: pls dnt sit quiet just by saying u cant see it, because u can make a difference here...
Peta's number: 09820122602...also as per animal rights in india noone can keep a dog chained for over 4-6hrs if my facts are correct at a time. and daily walks and proper food is a compulsory for every pet owner failing which can lead to 50,000 inr fine, 3months jail.
Pls report to PETA ot PFA.
