Our trainer recommended Ziwi Peak dog food as training treats. It's dog food but smells really meaty and they're tiny pieces so you won't end up feeding a lot in a training session. One of my cats love this stuff too so I sprinkle a pinch of the cat food version on her kibble.

Breeders don't always consider activity level apparently when recommending food. We're starting with just the new food - no other stuff at meal time. Learn something new every day!
In my opinion the RC Golden Retriever an overpriced, grain based food that is very low in calories. You were better off feeding Fromm...and were most likely feeding too much food, and that was the cause of the soft poop. Cut back on the Fromm, and all of the "goodies"...and see what happens.

You will need to feed way more of the RC's only 276 calories per cup. Here are the main ingredients in the RC Golden formula:
Brown rice, chicken by-product meal, oat groats, brewers rice, corn gluten meal, wheat, chicken fat, natural flavors, powdered cellulose, dried plain beet pulp, fish oil, wheat gluten, dried tomato pomace, vegetable oil, sodium silico aluminate, calcium carbonate, potassium chloride, psylliu

Looks like food fit more for chickens, then it is a dog.
