Default high protein food for puppies

We're thinking that we might change Tucker off of the Taste of the Wild food. He's kind of itchy, has some dandruff and his poops stink. I mean I know poop smells but there could be room for improvement I think, won't know until I try.

But before I go off and choose another food I want to know if I can feed high protein food to him (like EVO) or if that's dangerous. He's 6 months old and 14 pounds or so. I don't think he has a lot of growing left to be honest. Opinions?

He's a pretty small dog, so personally I don't see a problem with it. Some dogs don't do well on TOTW, it just goes to show they're all individuals

The Dog Food Project - Is too much protein harmful?

Quinn has been on Acana Grasslands since ... 3 months-ish? I'm really happy with it. Her coat is beautiful, no itchiness or dandruff, she's at a good steady weight and her poops are very small and firm. She does go around 3-4 times a day which is a lot, but she's also still being fed 3 times a day.

Dally, too, does very well on Acana.

Cali (15 week old Rottweiler) went from milk to raw and she has done great.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Nia has been on Orijen (40-42%) since she was 8 months old and she pretty much grew up on a high protein food. Currently she's on Acana (33-35%).

Popcorn our family Chihuahua ate Orijen's puppy formula since 3 months old and he turned out fine.

Thanks for all the input, I won't worry about it then. I'm glad I can disregard it as several grain free foods (which it would be nice to stick to) have proteins around 40%.
