We had a similar problem with the pudding poop thing. Our solution was easy, we were over feeding. Backed off the food and treats a bit and she firmed right up. Hope this helps.

My 17wk pup Zooey starting doing this as well (1am - 3am - 5am wake up calls) and the stools looked like pudding. She's been doing this since last Wednesday (10/23) with a solid stool here and there throughout the day.
It's just like the OP described... Zo would sleep from 11pm-8am roughly for weeks. Then all of a sudden these loose stools came out of nowhere. I haven't changed her food nor have I introduced any new crazy treats.
She acts 100% healthy and bounces off the walls for hours like any GSD pup would do at her age.
I'm going to try the pumpkin! Will post results in the next 48hrs!!

DAIRY!!! Some dog's can handle it....some dogs' can't!
Sounds like this boy REALLY needs The Digestive All PLUS Enzymes! The Wholistic Pet It will keep his gut healthy! Since 70% of disease starts in the gut, and he already has problems when his diet is varied a tiny bit, you should seriously consider this. Carmen also has a great one called Sunday Sundae. You can pm her and ask about it and how to use it.
You can try using your kibble as treats. Just make sure you measure out his amount for the day and pick from that.
Here is the other NON-Flour recipe.
LIVER LEATHER TREATS FOR DOGS AND CATS
You will need the following:
1 pounds raw calf liver
1 can sardines packed in water (drained before use) You can Exclude this if necessary.
Cookie sheet at least 12 x 16" Non-Stick with sides on it.
Garlic powder or salt (optional)
Preheat oven to 190 degrees.
Place liver, drained sardines, and a few shakes of garlic powder together into the blender. Pulse in small bursts to get it started and once it gets to the chunky stage, leave blender on for about 20-30 seconds to fully blend. This will create a thick paste.
NOTE: If your blender is small and low horse power, do this in smaller batches, then mix all
the batches together. You don’t want to overtax your blender motor.
Spray your non-stick cookie sheet with a small amount of Pam making sure that you rub it into the corners of the pan with your fingers.
Pour the mixture on to the cookie sheet. It’s thick, so you can use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides of the blender to get it all. Spread it out evenly to edges. Your goal is to avoid hills and valleys.
Place in 190 degree oven to bake.
Check pan after 40-50 minutes. If the liver mix has shrunk away from the sides, feels dry and rubbery to the touch and there is not any "stickiness," to it, you are ready to remove it from oven. If not, return to oven, and continue to check it about every 10 minutes or less if it is on the verge of being done.
NOTE: It may create a large bubble in the middle of the pan. Just take a butter knife and poke a few holes in it and continue baking.
Remove from oven and loosen the sides first, then under it and let cool for a few minutes so that you can handle it. It may break apart in places so don’t worry about that. Place rubbery liver sheet on cutting board, and cut into about ¼” strips with scissors. Then cut strips to create small squares about the size of a dime. You can either keep them soft or you can dehydrate them. If you are going to dehydrate them, cut them a little bigger, about the size of a nickle, as they will shrink. To Dehydrate, place the cut squares back on to the cookie sheet, and return to oven to dry further for approximately an additional hour, but keep checking so as not to burn them.
Place them in a container or baggie after being completely cooled and store in the refrigerator.

I'm not sure if Bentley has some sensitivities or what but yesterday my Husband tried a little cheese during training and the pudding poop came right back. He now knows we have to be more careful about what we use during training .

I might have to try some of those recipes myself, as my pup seems to be sensitive to grain as well.
Another treat we often use for training are Purebites. They are single ingredient freeze dried meat treats, and they have several different varieties. Thors favourite is the beef liver!

Remember, since you are feeding a Non-Grain food (Diamond Natural Chicken & Sweet Potato) to use NON-Grain flours purchased from a "Whole Foods Store" or the Health Food Store. They are more expensive than wheat flour but if you are keeping grains away from your pup, you’ll want to use one of the following NON-Grain Flours in your doggie cookie recipes. Also, when you use the Non Grain Flour in recipes the liquid needs to be adjusted…either more or less.
· Buckwheat also called Kasha
· Chickpea Flour or Gram Flour (made from Chickpeas)
· Potato Starch/Flour
· Taro flour
I have one more NON-Flour recipe if you'd like it!
Happy Sleeping!!!! LOL

We did bring a stool sample to the vet (he had actually been twice in the past week and a half because he had parasites a few weeks back and they were confirming that was also all gone).
We took out the Train Me treats and have immediately noticed a difference. So far we have had 1.5 days of pretty solid poop (and two blissful nights of 6 hour stretches with no potty breaks - woohoo)!
We just started puppy kindergarten and are doing quite a bit of training so thank you for the homemade treat recipe, I'm going to search the forums for a bunch of these since it seems like the safest (and cheapest) option.

Allergy test confirmed onion allergy and as a result I was told I could no longer eat garlic or asparagus.....are they crazy??? I no longer eat onions or try not to, but I regularly eat garlic and asparagus with no reactions.
The garlic scare for dogs came about for the same reason. Dogs were tested in high doses which did alter red blood cells.......but only after eating really high doses. It's been deemed safe for dogs unless it comprised 30% or more of the dogs food.
Garlic is Healthy
Garlic is added to dog foods because it has many health benefits, even at the very low levels used. Its main benefit is improvement to the health of the digestive tract. The other medicinal properties of garlic include: anti-microbial, antioxidant, antibiotic, fights cancer cells, decreases blood cholesterol, helps to prevent strokes and decreases blood pressure.In fact, most of the research into the effect of feeding garlic to dogs is done because the researchers want to better understand the benefits of garlic, not the dangers.Be assured that garlic is safe at the level used in dog foods, and remember that talking about toxicity without putting in some context of a “normal” consumption level is misleading.

when you went to the Vet did you take a stool an urine sample?
did the Vet do any blood work?
