Re: HELLLO EVERYONE GIVE ME ADVISE!
Some people are having good luck feeding Royal Canin. It depends on the dog, really. Personally, I will never feed a daily diet of anything with grains because they have quite the negative behavior impact for my dog and before raw I've had the best luck with grain-free. Your pup is probably too young for many grain-free kibble diets. Roxy's list is great. In addition to the guaranteed analysis, you have to look at the ingredients listing. It's best to have specifically named meats and meat meals in the first five ingredients. "Meat meal" is not good but "chicken meal" is because it is specific. I'd start with the highest quality kibble you can afford and work your way around and down until you find something that does well for your dog.
Signs of doing poorly: increased itching, redness, hot spots, flakey skin, dry coat, rough coat, bad breath, strong "doggie odor," huge poops, loose poops, general loss of vigor.
Signs of doing well: no itching or any skin issues, glossy coat, no dandruff, low or no doggie odor, no bad breath, small and firm poops, excellent vigor, good energy level without being hyper.
