    Just wondering what you feed your Collie's on? At the moment im using dry food which we got from pets at home and butchers dog food (puppys) mixed together.
    And when do their poo's harden, so it can be easiely picked up on the grass? :D

    My last three collie pups have been fed Arden Grange puppy food and have all done well on it. Naturediet is a good wet food if you want to feed half and half.

    Puppies can be a bit loose at times but poo should be hard enough to pick up from when you get them.

    What dry food are you feeding?

    If the stools aren't hard it indicates the food doesn't agree. Butchers isn't the best quality.

    Wainwrights from pets at home is IMHO the best wet you can buy.

    I think maybe the butchers is causing the problem try the pup without it for a couple of days just feed the dry and see what happens. If the poops harden up then you will know not to feed butchers.
