***Stop with the snarky comments. If you can't find a way to say what you want to say without bashing other board members, keep your thoughts to yourself. That goes for everyone in this thread.

I would give it a few days at the 1/4 new, 3/4 old food and see how that goes. If it doesn't get any better I'd probably keep him on the old food for awhile.

I usually do a fairly quick switch,...

I'd pass. What exactly does "positive reinforcement" mean if it's not reward based training? They expect puppies to work for praise only? I'd be leery of the alpha stuff too.
