There are dozens and dozens of posts on this forum on the subject of food. The authority seems to be Sabine, often quoted by DaveT; if you did a search you'd find SO much information you'd probably end up like a rabbit in the headlights, but much of it is really sound. The advice to feed the best you can afford is good, as long as it isn't kibble of any sort. My dogs, for what it's worth, are on raw bones, Ziwipeak and a prepared raw called Wolf Tucker, but I think that's only available in the UK. People seem to like Primal a lot, which I think must be equivalent. The whole thing of 'puppy' food being different is just a marketing ploy - puppies can eat exactly the same as adults. There's an excellent book called "The Science behind Canine Raw Feeding" by HB Turner. Amazon.com and uk have it, if you are considering going that route. I personally would recommend raw, or as near to raw as possible - Ziwipeak is air-dried raw, and although it looks expensive, the amounts you feed are tiny so a pack goes a long way - again there are lots of posts where people have worked out exact costs.
