Adult food vs puppy food

Rizzo just turned 1 year old and itís time to think about moving her from puppy food. Itís been so long I canít reme when I switched my older dogs, sheís a petite skinny thing so Iím not sure sheís done growing just yet.

When do you normally make the switch?

I have fed ALS (All Life Stages) kibble from the beginning, per the breeders instructions after obtaining the puppy.

I make the change from large breed puppy to All life Stages fairly young, around 6mo. if not before.

I swapped McCoy out from Eukanuba Large Breed Puppy (breeder's recommendation) to Acana at 14 months. So.. three years ago.

The transition was easy and smooth. He has done extremely well on both kibbles. I should add that his Acana kibble (as rich as it is) only accounts for about 2/3 of his caloric intake.
