Unfortuntly we had very loose stools on both..... We were first on wellness but it did not agree with our Pup so we switched to Orijin, I love Orijin as I fed it to one of my other dogs but she as well could not handle it until adulthood. So we tried it with our puppy and had the runs with it as well. We just switched to GO natural endurance formula (it's not just for puppies but has a puppy feeding guideline on the back) a few days ago because it is also a high quality food but has a bit less protien at 36% (Origin has 40%) and so far it's working very well, we switched cold turkey because it couldn't get any worse! So after 2 days everything is firming up already and she LOVES to food! ( she has never cleaned a bowl before until trying this)

Hope you find something that works for you, seems Shepherds have picky tummies! I'm hoping this food that we are on now sticks... If not I'm considering trying raw.

just to let you know that the go grain free endurance has a maximum Ca level of 2.2% (they only list the minimum on their site, which is 1.8%). while that wouldnt be much concern for a smalll breed pup, imo, its too high for a large breed pup. in fact its higher than wellness core, which specifically warns against feeding to large breed pups for that very reason.
Thank you for the info, I'm really kind of at a loss... This is the first food that she has loved and has had normal stools on!

maybe one of the acana grainless formulas would work. it is similar to orijen except for a little less meat content and lower protein levels. being made by champion as well i think many of us feel pretty confident with it. i think the grasslands formula is the only one with higher Ca levels....but the pacifica and wild prarie are ok.
Just saw this.... Thanks for the recommendation, after much research we ended up going RAW and Blitz has never been better!
