That's such a disgusting habit! Chihuahuas seem to be the worst for eating poop, and I have three of them.
There are several types of pills available that are supposed to make poop taste bad. I know, you would think that it already tastes bad, but apparently not to a dog. The ones that contain capstan seem to work the best, and my dogs really like the pills. They think they are treats.
If your dogs are getting their "snacks" from the cat's litter box this won't work because cats hate the pills. I've found that getting a covered litter box with a little flap for a door solves the problem. Even though my little chihuahuas can get in easily they don't seem to want to.
Yuck. My last pup(nearly two at the time) had quite an obsession with eating his poo, I knew i was feeding him and was confused at the time. I did a bit of googling and only found that it comes from boredom or hunger. Great. I tried snacks and bones, walks and food but i suppose although not great advice you just hope they grow out of it.
I will add though that using chili to stop him misbehaving did not have any effect. I did though discover white pepper. From the word go really he stopped chewing my things and although i didnt try that on his poo i believe with care it could work.
Anyway mate good luck for the future.

Please stop voting for these ignorant crackpots! I, a life-long liberal who used to occasionally vote Republican, long for two parties that are at least grounded in reality. Is that too much to ask? ...
