Too much poop?

I was talking to my sitter today and told her that little Roshi poops about 4-5 times a day. She said it may be his food.
He is eating Nutro Natural Choice Small Bites Puppy. This was the food the breeder recommended, because other diets made him have loose poop.

So my question is, is 4-5 times a day for a 3mth puppy normal? Or should I try another kibble (before I open the new big bag of Nutro)? I have been using Arcana kibbles for treats. He seems to enjoy it.

Are the poos formed? When Dexter and Jack were young they had lots of poos!

Yep. Nice firm little logs!!!
However, she said he was a little 'loose' today. But I think I accidently overfed him a bit this morning?

Chloe pooped 4-5 times a day for about the longest time. My theory is that we took her out so much trying to make sure she didn't have an accident, that she just went ahead and pooped and peed.

Now that she sets her own times to go out it's decreased to 3 on most days.

Could be the food... could have too much extra "stuff" his body doesn't want or need??
Tillie did great on Taste of the Wild since she started eating, she pooped 2-3 times a day, nice healthy poo's ... since we HAD to change her diet because of allergies to a homecooked diet, she poo's 1, maybe 2 times a day and they are little tiny things, nice and formed. LOL moms... oh how we love to talk POO.

No shortage of poo here either; puppy was just 12 weeks yesterday.

Yes, we certainly do like to talk 'poo'.

All of mine pooped a lot when they were little. I would say it's nothing unusual.

Brody's a prolific pooper. I swear he outputs more than he inputs.

Phew! I thought I had an odd pooping machine!!! I thought it wasn't bad.... Chicken meal, ground rice, rice flour, rice bran...

I read about Tillie. Poor little one. Hope it will all work out!

Roshi's starting to be quite nippy. 3 mths... isn't that a little too early for the 2nd round of teething?!
