Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
I'd recommend Wellness for sure! Bernie loves it, and we've actually switched between a couple puppy formula's within their line-up and his stomach has done well, rumor is, switching between higher quality foods is A LOT easier. It's not cheap, but I can't tell you how much better I feel giving him 'the good stuff'. He's totally worth it.
No matter what you choose, always change over in small increments though, make sure you buy the food you're switching to when you have at least have a couple week's worth of the old stuff left. I think it's pretty consistent that you start with a new to old ratio of 25/75, 50/50, 75/25 and do each for 3-4 days at least, depending on their stomach's sensitivity. I've also read larger breeds will continue maturing until 18 months, so I'd wait til at least 12, assuming you're in no rush?
On a lighter note, your doodle is adorable!!
Check out this list in the Food Group: Recommended Brands
Some of the foods on this list are even ALS (All-Life-Stages) so they're good for puppies AND adults. You wouldn't even have to switch food!
I hadn't really though of this yet... Hudson is a medium (should be about 35lbs) and he is currently 6 months and on puppy food (orijen). He barely eats half of the recommended amount for his weight and age, I wonder if I should by the adult kind next? hmm....
Did Hudson always eat as little or has he reduced the amount? Cooper (a standard size labradoodle - 60lb) ate almost 4 cups of Orijen, then decided she didnt need as much and cut herself down to 2 cups a day once she had grown.
i suggest you both join the food group!
