Puppy eating poo
I have a great dane puppy, which I got a week ago. I noticed on the first day that he licked his poo, although not everytime. I have also started wondering if it has eaten it as well as I smell that it has made one, but cannot find it. I have it on the same diet that it was on before, which is the Vet's Choice Puppy food for large breeds. I have never had a puppy that did this before.
Any advice?

You will need to clean up after him. Most dogs get into a routine of toilet use and so you cna anticipate when he is going to go and clean up after him and reward him for not touching it.
