It's funny. My vet owned: "Natures Recipe" in the late 80s. He stated that puppy food is; a rip off.. Been at it for 40 years..
Do what makes you feel like your doing the best and everybody, including the animal is happy...

I switch mine from puppy to adult food at 1 year personally
How long it takes to switch depends on the dog, some need one week and some can need up to two weeks to avoid upset. I've use the one week rule with success, I really hate having to switch cold turkey
