I have tried it using it for treats for my dog, did not buy anymore as it has 36% oats and 14% potato which I thought for a dog food it was too high. And the stools were a bit loose when I gave it to my dog. But your dog may be able to digest it. :)

I have just found this on line and put the details into the food calculator and it came out as 72%

I find that cold pressed food digests better than extruded food, as extruded food sits in the tummy and takes along time to digest, but cold pressed food digest quicker , and my dogs stools are better with old pressed, with extruded they are very hit and miss. Good to hear that they are doing better.

I do not give many treats as such, but give a bit of food when he has come back from a walk, and also play find the treat around the house, but use his food for this as well. I use his food as he has a sensitive tummy so have to be careful so would not go for this idea, but a lovely idea for those dogs who can eat anything. I also have a dog who loves a few biscuits when he goes to bed Dottie , but again I give him his food and this is good enough for him.

Not sure if this helps but , I have a have red setter who is active , every time I give him a diet with high carbohydrate he is very manic in his behaviour, may be this is something that you could explore. He also has a sensitive tummy so I have to be careful with what i feed him. He is now on Different dog and even though it is expensive he is doing very well on it. I have had Labradors in the past guide dog puppies and they can be very active. I hope that you can sort this out. :)

My dog copper gets fed on different dog, he has a sensitive tummy so this suits him very well.

Not sure if this helps , but I find with my red setter, if I give food high in carbohydrates it makes him hyper and unsettled.
I have just looked up what beagles are like on 101 beagle dogs on you tube. It does say that they are hard to train , but they like their food so may be get some lovely treats.
 I have looked after lots of puppies with guide dogs, and I know that it can be hard work when training them not to wee indoors etc, but do not be to disheartened he is only a puppy and one day he will get it the next it will feel as if all the work has gone out of the window. Keep going be patient and you will win through. :)

I am in the process of moving my dog onto different dog, it is expensive, but worth it, it is a cooked food and my dog digests it better than butternut  as different dog does not contain lentils.
I hope that you can help your dog  with a new food. :)

you could have a look at the pure dehydrated dog food , which is a good food, you put warm water into it to re hydrate it just a thought.

interesting but not convinced, I tried my dog with a large plate yesterday to see if it made any difference no it did not. If I throw a handful of dog food on the floor he still eats it very fast. He ha :)s no competition but he is a real foody. :)

just to say that I know that some people give their dogs cheese and that is up to them , but I have read that Dogs should not really have dairy.
Good to hear that your dog is now eating. :)

Not sure if you know of a food called pure, it is a dehydrated food that you mix with warm water, I know that it is a wet food but they do a duck version .
I have just looked and Milles wolfheart  they do a duck dried food and they also do a pork one too,may be worth a look they also do small bags to try so you do not have to buy a large bag at first. I hope that you can sort out some food for your dog. :)

Not sure of your budget, but pure food is very good , it is a dehydrated food that you mix with warm water, I use it for one meal and use raw for the other one at the moment.  you could also look at cold pressed food too, my dog does not do very well with extruded food he finds it too hard to digest and it comes out loose. He is also on the thin side but getting there now. It is a game of try and see , but these are the ones that have helped my dog raw and pure. Butter nut is very good too but a bit pricey. I hope that you can find a food for your puppy.  :)

One food you could try is pure , a dehydrated food that is made up with warm water and left for about 2-3 mins.
It is not that cheap but very good for even the fussiest dog. they do small 500g packs , to try it,  they have lots of positive reviews.
My dog is on this for one meal  and the other meal is raw just a thought. My dog does has a very sensitive tummy and it does not upset his tummy. Or cold pressed food , but my dog did not get on with this that well. I hope that you can sort your dog out with something that she  likes
