That is correct. I had to stop feeding Pro Plan Prof to a male I had since he could not work everyday . He was a high rolling nut case on Prof. Still high rolling on maint but much more controllable. My girl I have now is the same way. I notice a lot of difference once I stop mixing prof with maint. Only maint for her now no matter how much work she gets.
I don't want to say anyone is wrong, but it seems to me, that if the dog is not gaining weight, you are giving the same amount of calories. As long as they are getting enough and not to much food, I have a hard time believing that caloric density of the food makes a difference in their behavior. I'd look for something else to be the cause of the behavior change.
Just say, I'm like a Misourian on this regards,
