Definitely transition the puppy slowly no matter what you go with. You can begin the transition on day one, just start very slow and with very small amounts of the new food. Even if it's on horrible food when you get it. That said, Minka eats Fromm large breed. It's high quality, well sourced and a small company. It can be pricey depending where you get it, but we get it through Chewy and it's perfectly reasonable. (40 something bucks for a 33lb bag - which right now lasts her about a month and a half.). She likes the taste, she's a great weight, her coat is stunning and her energy levels are perfect. There's far worse food that costs far more, and equal (or maybe even better?) food that costs the same or more. Definitely research like you're doing though. Read ingredients.
A huge price tag doesn't necessarily mean something is good but a low price tag more often than not means it's bad. Also avoid vet recommendations on word alone. Some vets know a lot about nutrition. Others not so much and they have a vested interest in you just taking their recommendation on face value. If they've got Royal Canin stacked to the ceiling chances are they're not too wise on nutrition.

Correct bad behavior, don't redirect. Redirecting is rewarding, not resolving.
