Weight is just CICO- calories in, calories out. The reason you end up stalling at the the end is that as your weight goes down, your TDEE (total daily energy expenditure, base metabolic rate + exercise) goes down, so you need to further cut calories to lose more weight.

I would cut out the milkbones. I know dogs like them, but it's a lot of empty calories. They sell these 1.5 calorie treats that Kabota loves (he needs to lose weight, too, we're working on it), or green beans instead would work. Carrots are kinda high in sugars, so I'd stick with green beans or cauliflower.
