Nulo Puppy Food?

The search continues...
Tango is very fussy! I think I read somewhere that it is a trait in Havanese. I've read nothing but great things about Nulo puppy food, so I was just curious if anyone else out there in the Havanese world has tried it...
It's exclusive to PetSmart. We live in the city (Chicago), so not a lot of access to hard-to-find foods. I just ordered a bag last night and hoping he likes this one.

Thanks in advance!

I thought Sassy was very fussy when we got her. There was so many things she wouldn't eat. I tried different kinds of kibble but it seemed she would only eat Royal Canin which the breeder fed her (which is not a high rated dog food). I slowly got her to eat Acana (which is a 5 star dry dog food),but she wasn't happy. I would put her food down if it wasn't eaten in 20 minutes I'd pick it up and she wouldn't get any food till the next meal time. Most of the time she would only eat about 1/2 cup of the kibble. I started her on Primal freeze-dried and now she jumps and dances for her food. Most of the time she tries to lick the shine off the stainless steel bowl. I definitely would not consider her fussy anymore.

BTW Sassy is only 10 months old and I took her off of the puppy food when I took her off the Royal Canin. I really don't think they need the "Puppy" food. JMO.

OMG he LOVES Royal Canin! The only reason I used it was because we got some for free from the vet. I'm trying to get him off it because it's not a 5 star food. I'm trying a different one called Ultramix which has freeze dried bits of fruits and veggies in it, but he has barely eaten a thing in days. I started to worry about him, but then I gave him a little of what I have left of the Royal, and he went nuts for it! So now I'm hoping he will love the Nulo...it's also a 5 star food, so we'll see what happens.
Thanks for your input! Funny that it was the same food
PS...Tango is now 4 months old, so not quite ready to be taken off the puppy food.

5 stars is only good if YOUR dog does good on it . http://www.dogfoodproject.com/index....g_food_reviews

Vets Choice Holistic Health Extension Dog Food is what Sheba eats. It is kibble and she really likes it. It is rated 4 stars.
