Can mean that a basic nutrient is missing from the diet if a relatively new habit. Usually, it goes back to being in the wild. Only the alpha dog was allowed to scent and leave droppings. The alpha would eat the dog droppings of the other dogs. Lone dogs would always eat their own so a pack could not find him so easily. It is disgusting but if the dog is healthy (no worms, fleas, etc) relatively harmless. I just wouldn't let the dog lick me after munching.

The one thing you can do is to train a dog to "leave it." It really should be one of the basic commands, anyway. Best way to prevent a dog from being poisoned is teach it to only eat when it is given permission to do so. Not easy, but very doable.
