My little lady has been on Bakers Complete Puppy food (chicken not beef!) since the day we bought her home and we've never had any problems with it, but i've heard so many people saying that its not the best food and wondered exactly what is the best food to give her?

What's your budget?

There is a lot of good food out there. Arden grange, fish4dogs, Skinners, Orijen, Weinwrights to name a few.

All are varying prices and 100 times better than bakers.

Bakers is horrible stuff, that and pedigree foods. I personally don't believe in puppy food, a good quality complete food should give you a wide enough nutritional range for a pup or dog to gain what it needs, there is very little difference between the majority of puppy/junior/adult versions, in some cases it is exactly the same ingredients, just milled into smaller/different shapes and has (of course) a larger price tag. But, as long as it isn't full of additives, fillers and the protein levels aren't too high, it doesn't make particularly much difference I don't think so a puppy food is as good as an adult food, and vice a versa. I like Skinners, and it's one I'd look at using if I ever get round to breeding, to wean pups onto, although I'll just be soaking the adult version rather than bothering with puppy versions. Once you do choose a good quality food, change over slowly, do it over about 9/10 days, so 10% at a time, ie first day is 90% bakers, 10% new food, 9th day is 10% bakers and 90% new food, 10th day is new food. Hope that helps :)

Edited to add, I actually raw feed, but have looked into the ingredients of a lot of complete foods, as if I do go ahead and breed, some owners won't want to carry on with raw feeding.....

Bakers isn't a poor quality food, full of additives and colourings and "meat and animal derivatives" which are beaks, feathers, claws etc.

Burns mini bites is a good puppy food, I used it.

But there are others like Orijen, Arden Grange, James Wellbeloved is ok aswell

This is so true,and what works for one,doesnt always work for others.It really is down to the individual dog and owner.
We are all happy to help you find another food,should you wish to change :)
