 The Lab Manure Roll

Has anyone been able to break the lab from the manure roll and scent there of. Our lab/border collie cross had a run in with a coyote and ripped a pad on a paw. He was at the vet, fixed up and has been on the mend in the house for 3 weeks. I want to let him out during the day, but he has decided the shampoo smell is better with manure. Needless to say we need to break him of his new hygene treatments.

Nope. Haven't cured them of that. My lab knows when he did a bad roll. I just have to say "Get in the shower" and off he goes into the walk-in shower to get his punishment bath. You would be trying to break thousands of years of instinctive behavior. Good luck with that.

If your manure is in a pile, slap a fence up. Some cheap poles and some chicken wire worked to keep them out of my compost pile. They liked to eat my maure pile. Once it crusted over, they ignored it like they'd ignore a pile of dirt.

My buddy's black Lab mix Duke does the same thing. He'll find a very rotten animal in the woods and bring it back to the house and feast on it. A rotten, moldy pig hoof was like he found a pot of gold. Fresh deer poop is his favorite---he rolls on his back like a cat loves catnip. My buddy's 5-yr old daughter got a "stinky gift" when she unwittingly pet Duke when he got inside the house. Boy did he get a yelling at!

The only thing that seems to work is a tight dog leash. We let our's roam freely durind walks in the woods. Our's prefers bear sXXit and dead fish and skunk when available and there is no stopping her. Giving her a bath means something is going to happen within a couple of days to get rid of the scent.

So far, she has cut her front pad twice and stepped on a nail in ditch bottoms and tangled with a muskrat and lost.
She sheds enough hair to make a new dog every couple of days.

It's one of the joys of owning a dog. Smile

 The Lab Manure Roll

I had a previous non-lab mix that enjoyed rolling in crap once/twice every summer.

My currect lab-mix just prefers to eat it - hasn't rolled in it yet. She's gotten much better, it's just a matter of walking the dog with a prong coller, and when she sniffs a pile and opens her mouth - a stern correction comes her way.

Best of luck.

I get the best of both worlds. My retriever mutt rolls in the deer poop any opportunity she gets - we have a name for it - "shit-neck" - that's where she prefers to apply the perfume.

The other dog - a belgian sheep-dog - likes to eat the shit, but doesn't roll. You can tell she's had a snack when she comes up to you and her breath stinks like raw sewage.

Haven't figured out how to cure either - they're dogs, that's what they do.

Once he got big enough he went outside to stay. I never seemed to have a problem. As I had to bring him for the paw surgery we had to clean. The horses are in the field so it is not hard for him to find a fresh one, but difficult for us to limit access to it.

With a lab I am not sure that it is not a cycle to get in the water. You clean him and he gets smelly and you clean him again. Could it be positive reinforcement?

Before this we had a Golden retiever and I never had any problem. You would think they would be similar. But?

Some dogs are worse with the roll problem than others. I have no idea why. As mentioned, some prefer to just eat it. Mine love rabbit turds. It's like chocolate-covered raisins. yum!

My lab hates baths. So it is a punishment. But they can smell the shampoo so they want to go roll again to get rid of that smell. As soon as mine are out of the shower they are pile-driving into the carpet to try to get rid of the smell. A week or two of restriction to the fenced area helps the smell wear off naturally and restricts their access to maure, dead animals, etc.

You have horses so you have plenty of manure. It's gonna just keep happening now and then.

Peters,
My sister's Golden retriever is a big roller. She'll find something dead in seconds (the dog, not my sister). I don't think the desire is breed related.

Whenever someone brings this subject up I have to laugh. My terrier didn't just roll in it. She needed to really force the stuff into her fur. She would push the back of her head down into a nice pile and actually do a wrestlers arch so that just about all her weight was mashing it into the back of her head. All the while twisting like Chubby Checker was playing in her brain.

Later I would usually wait till the women were done huggin' and kissin' the mut. If they didn't notice the scent right away, I would then describe sight in detail. Smile
Dave
