I switched both my borders and my aussies over to adult food before a year. The puppy food semed to be too rich and causing tummy upset. I give adult food.... sometimes I throw on some plain yogurt, a spoonful or two.

I switched my Border Collie pup over to adult kibble at 6 months old.

The pup is now doing very well on half Orijen Puppy and half Chicken Soup for the Puppy Lover's Soul. We don't have a Costco nearby either, just a B.J.'s which sells large quantities of the usual supermarket dog foods. I plan to switch him over to Chicken soup for the soul exclusively over time....with a little yoghurt or cottage cheese.

My best bet is cost. That's the main reason we're using Chicken Soup for the Puppy lover's soul right now over the other premium dog food offered locally.

Well, I thought that Chicken Soup was his breeder's choice......although I know that Orijen is very, very good, also.

Do you use Orijen and like it?

I do not use Orijen, I don't have a dog and I don't feed cat foods with fish in them.

I personally just think Orijen is a bit higher quality, it is grain free (although is does have both potatoes and sweet potatoes, one of which is a main ingredient). Chicken Soup has five grains all of which are main ingredients (it is considered "main" if it comes before the first fat source) plus potatoes which are not a main ingredient. Orijen is also much higher in protein, I personally just consider it higher quality and would not be comfortable feeding chicken soup because of all the grains.

Chicken Soup is not a bad food of course, if you are on a tight budget I would certainly choose that over many other foods of a similar price. I know your breeder likes it but many breeders also swear by awful foods, so do your own research and make you own choice, either choice would be a good one, it's just up to what you feel most comfortable feeding and what you can afford.

If you Are willing to go an extra step, you could try raw feeding. Much better for your dog, and Alot cheaper then most people think.. I have ALOT of info on raw feeding if your interested, Everything from what to feed to how much to feed... And ill say it again, It can be cheap if you know where to look, its cheap even with higher quility meats.. And soo soooo Much better for your dog.

But if your set on feeding kibble, i recommend wellness core, of course you cannot feed that until he is 12 months, But A good puppy chow would do for now.
