Why does my dog eat his own poo?

My dog eats his own poo and will drink his wee. I have heard that this is dangerous to his health and am extremely concerned and at a loss on how to stop him. He is a bichon frise. Any helpful advise would be appreciated

My mum's terrier dog has this same problem. We have no idea why she does it, but we thought she might be lacking in something. The vet said that's unlikely, and he has told my mum to give her pineapple in her food. After about two weeks the flavour will come out in her poo and hopefully she won't eat it anymore. Hopefully haha. Strange solution, but that's what our vet suggested we do. So maybe give that a try :-)
