What's a five star dry puppy food that puppies like also?

I have a 10 week old that doesn't like his puppy food. We are feeding what the breeder was using and that is Eukanuba large puppy food. I was wanting to switch to a very good quality large puppy food that he would also like. I am hoping to get a consensus so I can make a good choice.

Thanks...Dave

i've never fed puppy food to my dogs. you shouldn't have a problem
finding a quality food for your pup. you may have to change food
a few times before you find a food that works for your puppy and
a food that your pup likes. do some research and learn about
dog food so you can make a good choice for your pup.

If solid gold doesn't work and it has worked for some of my dogs cut not my current one, you may be happy with Fromm gold large breed puppy food. My pup loves it.

My breeder was feeding my puppy Eukenuba LBP and the first two ingredients are chicken meal and corn meal. Not good. Change his food as soon as you can. Like Doggiedad says there are plenty of foods out there, do some research and find one. You may have to try a few but stay away from corn base and fillers like that.

Never fed puppy food. Usually an all life stages or adult

My pup loved the Fromm's Large Breed Puppy Gold food for about 6 months then all of a sudden turned her nose up at it. Since then we've been using Orijen Six Fish and she can't get enough of it.

I appreciate the advise from everyone and the suggestions on what you are feeding.

Do a slow switch gradually adding in the new food over about a week.
