|Mary Beth||I agree with Shade. The half cup of kibble treats during training and in addition to his regular kibble at meal times could be causing the problem. Like Shade suggested, keep him on his regular kibble only. Of course, he will want treats for working - so you may want to just get one kind - one of the kinds I use Tricky Trainer treats they are small and I only give 2 at a time, also I alternate praise, treats, sometimes praise a couple of times, then treat, so my Sting doesn't expect treats every single time.|

Possibly, try limiting to his kibble only and see if the problem persists or ceases. There might be something in one or more of the kibbles that's triggering sensitivity, or it could be simple overfeeding. I know Delgado at one point around 7 months was super skinny and I tried upping him past 4.5 cups but he just had super runny stools even if I split it between 3 meals.

|brightspot||I guess I feed about a half a cup while training. It surprises me that it is causes the intermittent diarrhea. What do you think?|

|Mary Beth||Possibly, depending on how much you are giving him. It may not be the food, but the amount.|

Treats for a 6 month old
I just had a thought reading another post. I've been feeding my pup the same food for 4 months and he's been having inconsistant stools. It might be really runny in the morning but firm at night. He was checked and cleared for coccidia and guiardia so I was a little confused. But then it hit me! I've been getting free samples of various dog foods at my specialty pet store. I use these for training treats.
Could that be the source of the inconsistant stools?!?
