What to feed my Doberman puppy

My doberman is 14 weeks old. The breeder had her on Taste of the Wild All life Stages and I have switched her to Cannidae All Life Stages. She has done well on both of these, but just curious as to what other doberman owners fed thier puppies. Should she be on puppy food or is all life stages ok?

ALS is good. Some ALS has too high calcium for a large breed dog. I feed Acana pacifica and some raw red meat.

Those both are supposed to be good foods. However, IMO Natures Variety Instinct, Orijen, and Acana are superior to those foods. Whatever you feed, be careful and dont overfeed. It is much better for your pup if he is kept at a lighter weight. It would be fine if you could even see his last rib or two. An all life stage or large breed puppy food is what you should be feeding. One other thing, it is better to feed a food with only one or two meat proteins. More is not better when it comes to meat proteins in a puppys food.

I've feed my puppy "all life stages" from 8 weeks old...never used puppy food.
Many years on Canidae...with excellent results - produced a real shinny, soft coat.
Latter I went to a 50/50% blend of Canidae & Holistic Blend Lamb & Rice.
In her senior years I mix up: Holistic Blend & Organix.

I feed NOW- puppy food. Originally I put him on Blue Buffalo but the protein content was just too high for his poor little tummy and we had major diarrhea problems.
The breeder said his dad had the same problem so I switched him over to NOW and I cant believe the difference. Now not only is he a champion pooper but his coat is so healthy and shiny.
And its made in Canada
