I also had a similar experience with both recent GSD puppies I raised in that high quality foods with high protein (like Acana, Sportdog) gave them lots of loose, big stool and many poops a day, and they stay pretty skinny and don't seem to gain enough weight even eating 5 cups a day. I switched to Proplan 30/20, 4 cups a day when my pup was around 12 weeks old, and it has been working great. My last puppy switched to Premium Edge Puppy and that also worked for her. She now eats 5 cups a day at 5 months old.
I know a lot of sport dogs are doing super well on Proplan and people swear by it, despite not showing the highest quality ingredients, the dogs are active with shiny coats. Not sure why!
