Puppy eating poop

Does anyone have any tips/tricks to get puppy to stop eating (or trying to eat) our other doggie's poop?
We scoop it constantly, however, she's pretty quick and literally watches Chewie poop, then races over to eat it *gag*

I've heard there is a powder to put on their food to make their poop taste nasty (as opposed to ??).
Any other tips to get her to stop?

She, as well as Chewie will raid the kitty litter like its a tootsie roll buffet, but at least we can limit their access to the litter box, whereas outside, it's harder to prevent.

You could try spraying apple bitter on the poop , it is uses to keep dogs from chewing on things and licking their wounds.

Wink Hi

I had been given the advice of putting cayenne pepper on my puppy's poop. He did not eat his brother's only his own. Now the cayenne pepper did not work for him obviously a mexican. Try doing that I trained him by using the word LEAVE IT now he could careless. When walking both dogs and there is poop I started when he first came to me with the word leave it as he did not have any shots yet and I had been concerned for his health. Hope this works
