    Defaultrunny poop

    I have two 10 week old pups. When I give them treats as I work on their training their poop gets runny (can't spell diahrea). They are happy with lots of energy. When I take the treats the poop clears up for one and a little bit for the other. I am feeding them Blue Buffalo dry food.

    Thanks

    I would use the kibble as treats. There are too many recalls on treats made in China. You can also cut a sweet potato thin and bake at a low temp. in the oven till they dry out.

    I used cheese squares for training. Just don't use too many, because of the calcium. I also found some yogurt doggy treats that worked well. Always read labels for dog treats. Check where they are manufactured. I was at Fred Meyer, and checked every package and found none made it USA or Canada. They were all China or Bolivia. China made treats have had so many recalls. They are too big a risk to buy.

    Apple slices, carrots and cut up chicken breast work well also. I do not allow mine to have any processed treats. They don't need the extra calories and there have been too many recalls.

    Thanks for the info. One thing they do like is bugs. They eat all the bugs outside that they can find. I guess I could use those as well, LOL.

    If your pups are having issues with treats, I would treat only with their food. I show in obedience and if/when my dogs get a treat, it's just a piece of kibble. They don't care what it is, as long as they get something. Since they're used to what they are eating twice a day, then a piece of kibble here or there isn't going to upset their stomach.

    Since we had a treat that is being recalled, mom started baking treats for our lab since then! It is fun baking them and is edible for human too.

    My dog calvin loves carrots. You can get a bag of baby carrots pretty cheap and break them in halves or thirds make great treats, or just buy a carrot and cut into fine pieces or even like carrot fries.

    I have tried carrots and they love them as well. Their poop has become more formed and solid and now I have options. Thanks for all y'alls help.

    We use baby carrots now and snap them in half. I eat the larger ones and Gracie gets the smaller ones. She acts like they are treats so we use less treats now or when we run out.
