I know that rice is supposed to be good for sensitive stomachs, but I've found that I can't feed it to two out of my three dogs, because it gives them diarrhea. Brown rice is worse than white rice in this regard, because the bran causes it to pass right through them undigested. Literally, they go out back and poop rice. If I must give them a starch, I tend to choose potatoes, pasta, oats, or barley, which works a lot better for them.
Perhaps your dog is able to tolerate rice better than mine, in which case, I'd suggest that you go for white rice or else overcook the brown rice and process it in a food processor or blender, to allow it to be more easily digested.
