I am a professional breeder. This is not healthy. It is called Coprophagia. There are supplements you can give the dog to stop them from doing that. Meanwhile, they need to see the vet for a thorough check-up to see if they are lacking, as previous poster said, a vital nutrient. Some dogs just eat their own poo out of boredom. Whatever the reason, they make very affordable supplements that will stop it quickly. :)

Dachshund's can also get parvo if they eat other dog/animal poo.. Parvo is deadly.

My dog has done this since she was a puppy. She only does it to "hide" the fact that she went in the house. Otherwise, she doesn't ever do it outside.
