Need help selecting food brand

I am heading out to the market this evening to grab my new comer, ten weeks old, some food.
Available in market are
Nutra puppy by diamond
High prairie puppy by totw
Maxi starter by royal canin
Smartheart
I have narrowed down the choice to either royal canin or totw.
Totw seemed better to me out of the two but i just want to be sure which one to get so i dont mess up with my puppy's diet (which should be balanced).
Tried searching forums for omparison between the two but i did not get any satisfactory answer.

Congrats on your new pup!
My boy has only been on totw, love it. He has grown beautifully, soft coat, white teeth, clear eyes.
Of few of my friends also have their pups on totw. Def worth the price. My girl had tummy troubles when we got her, when I switched her over she never had a problem again.
My boy turned one last week and my girl is 1 1/2 and that's all I feed them.
Good luck!

Thanks angvi.. I'll definitely try totw. Previously i have been giving dry kibble to my other dogs.. but recently i came across an article regarding hazards of giving it dry. Some folks recommended me to give soaked in water.. what do you suggest

What about Wellness Core Grain Free (for puppy)? I don't think there's a lot of good choices for wet from what I can tell.

I agree that TOTW is the best off your list.

I feed kibble and soak it with warm water before feeding it, I started because Delgado was gulping his kibble and the water slows him down. Now both dogs prefer the kibble soaked

TOTW

I am currently trying to switch my puppy onto TOTW Pacific Stream puppy after failing with a different brand.

FYI. If you decide to go with TOTW I noticed that it is cheaper to purchase on chewy.com than it was at my local pet store. I am not sure if it is still cheaper because I checked it out several months ago but it is certainly worth a look. I get Wellness and Canidae from the site and both are cheaper than in the store.

Isn't TOTW from Diamond Pet Foods? I'm not sure why this brand is being recommended but to each their own.

The OP is in Pakistan, so choices aren't the same as in North America. Off the list provided my belief is TOTW would be the best of the choices
