Thanks friend. I have updated my profile. Hope everyone can know that I am from India.

sechattin Taste of the Wild does have a High Prairie Puppy formula which would theoretically be the ideal one for your girl, but it will depend on the seafood allergy and how severe it is. Does she need to avoid any fish in any amount, or do small amounts not bother her? I ask this because I have known dogs allergic to fish and some could not have any type of fish listed while others did fine on a food that had just a little bit of fish listed far down on the ingredient list. It seems that all of the Taste of the Wild formulas have at least a small amount of ocean fish meal in their formula, so it depends on how severe her allergy is. If it is a very sensitive allergy, you'll have to look at a different food that has a formula which does not contain fish meal.

GSDAlphaMom Just me sure and do a slow transition when changing her food. A full switch over usually causes loose stool. The first few days do 3/4's of the old food with 1/4 of the new food. The next few days after that do 1/2 old food with 1/2 new food. Following that do 1/4 old food with 3/4 new food then go to 100% new food. Do the tranistion over a 2 week period and you should be fine.

sechattin The Food Advisor is good to get an idea of what foods are healthy, but there are some other factors, sources being one of them. While the Dogswell food has good ingredients, the source of their chicken is questionable, therefore the quality is not as good as some other foods.

Let's see. Not sure what's available to you, but I'll go down a list of foods I feel are good quality and have trustworthy sources:

Castor and Pollux
Go! Fit and Free
I and Love and You
Simply Nourish
Solid Gold
and my other personal favorite besides Orijen is Taste of the Wild

Honestly, it's hard to go wrong with any of these brands. And there are many more in the four and five star tiers on the Advisor site that I didn't list mostly because I just don't have any personal experience with them.

Oh really But they have given 5 star rating for that So only i though of trying that. Anyhow its not available in India . Other than Orijen do have any list of good dog food.
