Is it squidgy or liquid? Squidgy is occasionally normal but liquid is more something you should worry about. It could be nerves to be honest. I would monitor today and if no better then call vet tomorrow however if gets worse or you notice a change in behaviour then call vets today. I never risk anything with a small puppy.

It's not unusual for puppies to get an upset tummy in new situations, if he's otherwise happy and active, that's probably what it is. How is it going apart from that?

Are you feeding the same amount the breeder was?

Eating more than his requirements can cause poo issues so it might be worth cutting back on portion sizes just a bit.

I would drop a few grams per meal and see how it goes.

They are very fast! Mine gets frustrated when out as most dogs can't keep up!

You need to be taking him out and about now ,carry him ,he needs to experience the outside world from this age to be properly socialised .

It's not just physical stuff that will tire him out or keep him occupied. Trying having a few short (5 min) training sessions in the day. Mine loved us sitting at either ends of a room and calling her to get her knowing her name and starting on recall, when she understood we would move around to make it more difficult, eg just around a corner or through an open door way but in next room. She knew her name very quickly and had fun.

Definitely what nmg85 said. At 9 months, my WCS still finds 10 mins focussed training more exhausting than and hours full on exercise.

Thats a great start! Have you got an puppy parties in your area? Our vets did one and it was great for mine.
