Dog eating poop

Our one greyhound has been eating poop. We don't know what to do. We have tried fresh factors, cleaning up the yard right away, she always finds some.
We tried something the vet gave us to put in food but that didn't work either.

Any suggestions.

Oh I remember a dog trainer a great guy I see on TV all the time he was talking about this and it made so much sense!

What did he say (Luba's thinking) I remember him saying for the owner to go out to the yard before the dog and find any poop spots and to put something on them, it was something bitter and bad tasting to the dog but not harmful (oooh what was it)

Everytime the dog poops you put it on, they get the idea pretty fast. He even suggested carrying a little bit of it around on walks and putting it on poop that 'people' never picked up!

It really really worked out great, the dog stopped eating poop!

For the life of me I can't remember but if I do, I'll let you know. It was a common household thing I THINK!! It wasn't anything like pepper either.

In the meantime go read this out, it's a really good article
