what age would you feed orijen lbp to?

kyah is 4 months old now and i have her on orijen lbp. have been for a while now.

for those of you who are familiar with the brand, what age would you feed it until, before switching to adult food.

ive heard at 6 months old you should switch to adult food, however ive also heard with this brand its not a bad idea, and doesnt hurt to feed it for longer?

Personally, I would wait until at least 12 months to switch. Looks like Orijen recommends the LBP until roughly 14 months for a dog the size of the average GSD.

Riley's still on it at 11 months. I noticed that she is starting to fill out a little bit so I'll likely switch soon (say in another month or so depending on her weight)

We feed 2x a day. We got riley from the breeder at 4 months and she was already on 2x from the breeder.
