What are you feeding him? A dog should have nice solid poos with a consistent color. Now, walking poos are different..if a dog is over stimulated on a walk (excited, nervous, etc.) they can produce some runny poos.. brings new meaning to "scaring the s**t" out of something! LOL!

With a quality food, you may only see 1-3 poos a day. A crappy one, up to 10 or more. Quality foods should give nice compact poos, while crappy ones produce "poop soup".

If you dog is eating a quality food, then I would suggest a good worming..run a fecal sample to your vet to be tested. Worms can cause soft, discolored poos. Does he eat his poo? That could be another reason.

Give us a bit more info and we can give a bit more feedback.

ahh..nothing like spending a Sunday morning discussing dog poo!

I would definitely say it is the food then...Ol Roy and Beneful are both terrible foods. Try buying food at a regular pet store or feed store..these are the only places that premium dog food is offered (with the exception of Costco or Sam's Club..they carry Kirkland Signature, Nutr Nugget's and Exceed which are good foods) Any dog food bought at a grocery store or Walmart/Kmart type place will be crap....they will all contain corn/wheat/soy/by-products, etc.

While Diamond Performance is a little better than your previous foods, it is still not a great food...first ingredients are corn, wheat and by-products..all problem allergens to dogs. Plus it has a protien level a bit too high for a young growing dog (30%) you want to stick with a protien level in the 20-24% range. If you want a good Diamond brand of food, feed thier Lamb and Rice and Beef and Rice formulas..no corn/wheat/soy or by-products..they are rated an A on the dog food scale. Diamond also make s a super prmium formula called Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul.

If you don't mind my asking, where are you located? Most pet stores or feed stores carry the premium foods. Most common ones carried are Nutro Natural, Canidae, Innova, Nature's Best, Dick Van Patton, Pro Pac, etc.

Many of the premium foods have websites with a dealer locater to easily help you find somewhere in your area who carries thier foods. Just google a pet food name and check out thier sites...that should help!

It was Diamond that had a major recall on some formulas from a certain midwestern plant a few months back. The only formulas effected were the ones containing corn (it was a corn toxin) The formulas without it (Beef and Rice, Lamb and Rice and Chicken Soup) were not effected. I still feed the quality Diamond formulas..it's safe to say once something major like that happens, they won't let it happen again.

On a sidenote, many dog food companies have had toxin issues.....Nutro, Royal Canin, Purina, etc... it can happen to any company that uses corn in thier foods... key to this issue...don't feed a corn based dog food
