Read Teacup Poodle (Teddy Bear) Guideline Ep.38 (Group Fights)

Some teacup poodles (teddy bears) would secretly eat up their own feces
to make up for the missing nutrition in their body despite they probably
already know they’d be punished for such behaviour. nevertheless,
it’s perfectly normal for canines to consume feces of other breeds
(especially herbivores) to gain nutrition they don’t find in meat.

Teacup Poodle (Teddy Bear) Guideline 39 :
Behaviour of Feces Consumption ( Coprophagia)

most dog food already contain sufficient nutrition required for
teacup poodles however, if the teacup poodle is suffering from
digestive problems, the scent of food smell or undigested food
left in it may attract teacup poodles to consume the feces as well.

for many teacup poodles, the main reason of them eating feces
contributes largely to boredom. 
when owners make loud noises
in an attempt to stop teacup poodles from getting near feces,
such behaviour is only going to make them think those feces are
precious treasures that owners are trying to keep to themselves,
and for that teacup poodles would do their best in trying every
possible way until they finally get a solid taste of the feces.

to get a deeper understanding about teacup poodle’s
behaviour of feces consumption, read the following:

first of all, review your current feeding method and see
if you are on the right track in terms of food type selection.
secondly, ___?___, make the life of your teacup poodles
vividly colourful and interesting as much as possible.
and lastly do not make a big scene out of the behaviour when
you catch your teacup poodle already chewing on the feces nor should you
try to fetch the feces off them, eventually they’d lose interest on the feces.

so summarise, there are a few reasons
why teacup poodles consume feces:

1. too much food consumed previously.
undigested food in feces contains particular nutrition/smell
that may be easily confused with regular dog food.

2. eats too fast
undigested feces contain large amount of protein,
carbohydrates and other nutrition that some teacup poodles
may confuse with normal dog food.

3. not enough meals
some owners only feed their teacup poodles once a day and
because of such, their teacup poodles do not get enough nutrition from
their daily diets in general, therefore some would choose to eat feces
to make up for the lacking nutrition in their diets.

4. digestion disorder.
internal parasites can be one of the reasons of digestive problems
of teacup poodles hence production of undigested food.

5. result of overly strict training
incorrect training may lead to side-effects in terms of
the behaviour of teacup poodles.

for example: forcing teacup poodles smell their own feces as punishment
is one of the reasons why some teacup poodles would eat up their own feces
after elimination – to prevent their owners from seeing the feces.

6. result of negative emotions
some feces-eating teacup poodles may have been building up
negative emotions 
over a long period of time
(ie. neglected by owners, isolation, fear, bored and want to have some fun)
for them to develop abnormal behaviours such as eating feces
just to please or get attention from their owners.

7. just for fun
to totally avoid the chance of teacup poodles eating their own feces,
some owners would quickly take away the feces after their teacup poodles
have just finished pooping. however if an owner makes the cleaning
into such a big scene in front of their teacup poodles, they are going to
think that the feces must be something very interesting for the owners
to take it away from them so soon, and next time the teacup poodle’d
quickly eat up all the feces before the owner takes it away
as if playing a game of “Who’s faster?”.
