I am not to sure about that brand of food. I would check with Petvalue or Global pets to see what they think of it. I feed mine Acana dry kibble, thats what they love.

Oh, are they more knowledgeable than petsmart people?

I paid around $65 for a 30lb bag I believe. Do you think I should change it to another one?
You should freeze some of it, that's an awful lot of food for a puppy!! It will go stale.

I love Fromm and will always suggest them, (and they seem to have caught on to be the latest 'fad')they have a four star line that is wonderful, for all life stages and they also have a 'gold' line that is less expensive but still has wonderful quality ingredients-and they have a puppy formula in that line. I trust their sourcing, their production (as they own their own plants) and the customer service is just wonderful. Fromm Family Foods Gourmet Dog & Cat Food, Naturally Holistic

Acana comes from champion foods, which is out of Canada. I trust their ingredients, their sourcing and their facilities where they make the products. I believe being in Canada you will be able to find their grain free all life stages formulas, I think they also have a puppy formula too. They also make Orijen, however, I think Orijen is just too much for most dogs.

Go! seems to be a popular brand as well as Canine Caviar, I like freshpet which is more of a fresh food you would find in a grocery store or refrigerated in a pet store. Nutrisource comes well recommended as well.

I am not a huge fan of blue buffalo or wellness, however I would likely feed either before I would feed nutro. I do not think they are bad foods by any means, I just do not trust their sourcing quite as much.

Right now, I am waiting on some samples from The Honest Kitchen All Natural Dog Food | Dehydrated Raw Dog Food | Like Homemade Pet Food that I ordered, it's a dehydrated diet that you add water to, if the boys like it, I'm going to start adding it to their diet.

In the end, do what works for you, if you like the nutro, stick with it-if you want to look at other options, the above mentioned brands would be where I would start looking
I will look into those foods! I just want something good for my little one. Thanks for all the info!

I wouldn't chose Nutro myself, simply because I don't trust the really really big producers. I'm going to give you a link to "dog food adviser". They do give it a four star rating, but read down about ethoxyquin, that really bothers me.
Several other brands that contain fish meal, including the two I use, are stated to be ethoxyquin free.

here's the link: Nutro Ultra Dry Dog Food | Review and Rating
