We add fish oil to breakfast each day, Scooby's weight will determine how much to add, and my dogs love it! They're all on Merrick Before Grain kibble mixed with a little bit of Merrick canned food. If he has a "runny bum" (cute phrase!) you can also add probiotics to his food, or try a bit of canned pumpkin. Not pie filling, just plain pumpkin. I used Sabine for a consult and was happy with the info she provided.
I was so stressed over what my dogs were eating and made myself crazy, try not to do that!
For treats we use chicken jerky, we call it "puppy crack" because they love it so much! I also buy Natural Balance biscuits because they're good quality and the dogs love all of the flavors. If Scooby doesn't like biscuits you could also use bits of apple, bits of baby carrots, or boiled chicken.
What shampoo and conditioner are you using? That could be contributing to the dry coat as well? I wouldn't try to brush him when he's wet, that makes it harder to do my 3.
Good luck, try not to worry!
