    We will be picking up Elsie on the 4th June at 8 weeks old, currently the breeder has been weaning her on James Wellbeloved Puppy and she says it seems to be going well.

    Do I buy a big 15kg bag ready for her arrival and if so, does anyone have any recommendations as to the best place to buy it i.e. cost wise?

    What I am concerned about is buying a 15kg bag and her going off it!

    Personally id get the 7.5kg bag, just in case.

    Have a look around online, there are often some good deals. P@H sometimes have deals on JWB as well.

    They actually have a 3 for 2 deal at the moment.

    Hi, I had a look at P @ H and the 3 for 2 is only on 2kg bags. Which thinking about it would probably work out a bit cheaper!

    Is Wainwrights pretty much the same stuff? Better/worse?

    From personal experience, id say better.

    But you need to stay on the JWB for about 6-8 weeks, until pup is settled, vaccinated etc. A dietry change too soon can lead to all manner of problems.

    I think I will get 3 for 2 and see how we get on. Will different flavours cause problems or is it just the make?

    I would say wainwrights was better too. My son had his viszla pup on JWB and she always had the runs. Put her on wainwrights and she has been fine ever since.

    Dont forget that whatever you do, if you get food from PAH, they will take it back and exchange or refund (with your receipt-without if its their own make)so whatever you get and however many if its a special deal, you will be able to return it :thumbup:

    Cant wait to see Elsie :D

    I would say wainwrights is better and much cheaper and they are basically the same food just under a different name, congrats on the new addition x

    Will introducing different flavours but of the same product create tummy upsets?

    The lady who advised me in P@H said that changing flavours within the wainwrights would be more gentle on the gut than changing to a different food.

    It didnt cause problems when pups were older (14weeks) but when younger i did mix a handfull of old flavour with new flavour just to make sure and they had no probs with bad tummys--- i was mixing a spoon of wet food aswell though and dry food was moistened
