We have a cross lab/retriever pup ( about 10 months), and are having some house training problems.
Up until around 8 weeks ago we actualy did have him 99.9% trained ( no poo and wee). Then we changed dog food from dry food advance to dry food Purina.
We eased him in gently to this over a couple of weeks, with a mix of both types of food as advised, with the expected mess that a change of diet brings.
The mess is now pretty much back every morning ( he sleeps in the laundry ). I should add its only during the night, when he is about in the house during the day there is no problem.
What I have noticed about the consitency of his poo is that its very soft.
Ive tried to correct him with a smack, as it worked with his general house training, but this doesnt seem to be making any difference now and I hate doing it anyway.
Any advice guys ?
