We're now just under 7 weeks into the new diet and progress is still very slow.
Rex loves to play fetch with his hoop on the large green to front of our house. If the road is quiet, he will happily play and not want to go back home. If there are diesel engines to be heard, he is still very uneasy and will stop playing and return to the front gate.
There is still no real progress on the general walking side of things. He is still very wary of noise, sometimes he will go round a corner, other times he won't, all depending on what is going on around us at the time.
At the moment I'm not convinced that the Breakthrough food is to be credited with the minor progress that we have seen.
We have approx 3 weeks supply left and I'm considering changing to an alternative food.
I realise that there is no single food that can really be deemed as perfect, so trial and error is probably key to success here.
If I don't see a notable difference in the next 2 weeks, I don't think I'll be ordering a 3rd bag of Breakthrough.
My original research into foods on here led me to want to try a 5 out of 5 food, as I'd read that poorer quality food could lead to an unsettled stomach, which in turn could enhance any anxiety.
I'm currently a little torn as to wether to continue this trial or move to Pooch And Mutt Calm and Relaxed, as it's very similar to Breakthrough but with increased protein by comparison, or even change to a 5/5 food such as Eden.
Both of these options would be an improvement, based on score alone, over Breakthrough.
The next fortnight will decide for us.
Maybe, just maybe, something will spark in our little lad and prove this food to be worthy, but I'll not hold my breath.
Thanks for your time and interest.
