Default Poop problems

I'm a little worried about Charlie he's been on the same diet Blue wilderness free feed along with a nightly meal of kibble and canned food mixed. About a week ago he started having problems. I don't know why he has trouble pooping and when he does his poop is so dry that it almost crumbles into powder. He still goes twice a day but they are defiantly not normal. This seems to all of started about the same time as TC passed away so I thought it might be stress. I'd really like to help him get back to having normal BM is there anything that I can give him that might work to soften his stools up a bit.

Yes, few things.
*Olive oil in his dog food.
*Canned Pumpkin.
* Less dry food, more canned food for a bit.
*Offer more water to him throughout the day.
"he sounds a little constipated to me" Hope he gets
better soon.
Blessings
