Wink Food....

Blue wilderness or core for large breed puppies for my timber wolf shepherd?

What other foods do y'all recommend from petsmart?

What is y'all's opinion on adding veggies to my 7 week old food?

What about cottage cheese?

Thx.

Congrats on your new puppy!

Blue Buffalo is a good brand as well as Wellness, Solid Gold, Orijen, etc.

I have always given my puppies carrots and apples.

I love the name of your female, Khaleesi.

At Pet Super Market only, Wellness or Merrick are the only two IMO that are good quality.

I like Wellness over BB. The grain free Castor & Pollux is also a good one at Petsmart. I'll occasionally add an egg, yogurt, and/or some raw meat or green tripe. I usually give fruits and veggies (baby carrots, apples, mixed berries, banana, etc) as a treat stuffed and frozen in a Kong with something sticky like peanut butter.

Would it be ok to feed my 1year 2 month old the large breed puppy food I will be getting for Bear (7 week old timber wolf shepherd)?

I ask because I have heard it might be better than adult? Thx.

It really depends on what you want to do. Some people actually keep their shepherds on puppy food up to two years while others (like me) just go to adult at 8-12 months. You do want to remember that puppy food tends to be higher calorie so you'll want to watch your older dog's body condition.
