You need to be careful when you bring your new puppies home, for the first week while your pup is settling in you do not want to over stress them with a different food, I feed Orijen to all my dogs except the Lhasa. My girl Hav and my Bolonka had trouble at first after they become more active they could tolerate it. My Bolonka a few weeks ago had acute Pancretitis (it was horrible) she had been boarded. We don't know why she got it but my Vet suggested that she not have such a high protein food and a little less fat food, so I am slowly changing over to Acana Wild Prairie it is only a little less fat, but less from a fish source. I love Orijen, but some dogs just can't tolerate it. My Vet is really great about diet suggestions and even though she was on a low fat prescripition diet for a week, he said that it is not good for a healthy, active dog for any amount of time. The reason for lowering the fat is not because of the Orijen, it's in case someone in the future feeds or she finds a high fat food, it lowers the risk of getting Pancreatitis again.
Basically what I am saying is I know you want your pet to have the best, just go slow and ease into it, there is time, these little guys sometimes have sensitive tummys.
