I have a 9 (almost 10) month old Australian cattle dog. The only treats I give are the training aid type (mostly cut up, dried out weiners) and I don't even give many of those, only when he's extra special. Otherwise he gets praise
Kirklands seems to have introduced a new puppy formula (I noticed the different packaging) but he's on the adult type.
His stool has always been a little softer than I'd like. And it's not always the same consistancy. The worst it gets is when we've been out running and he suddenly stops to poop. Maybe the exercise clears out his bowls or something. It wouldn't be a problem but when this happens and I pick it up, it always leaves a smear on the grass, which I dislike.
And I also don't want him to get impacted anal glands later in life.
