|Is there any way you can contact your local pet food store to see if they will order a specific brand for you? I know our local stores are amazing about that! I personally feed mine Fromm. They are family-owned and have never had a recall. (I can't say that last part about the majority of the brands you mentioned). I have called Fromm several times to ask about ingredients/serving amounts,etc. Their customer service is fantastic, and they went out of their way to help me! I'm sure if you email them and ask about samples, they could send a few samples your way to see if your new puppy will like their food. That way, you at least have the option to order online (and use coupons/promo codes on shipping) if you can't get your local stores to carry it.
I really recommend the Fromm Four Star Grain Free Game Bird Recipe(dry). That is what I feed to my three dogs. It is an all-stages formula, so you can definitely put your new puppy on it. (Should you ever decide to rotate foods at some point, they have several other grain-frees in their lines (and grain as well) that you can easily rotate with.)
I would ask your breeder to give you a bit of the food your dog is already, so that you can slowly transition your pup onto the new food once it arrives. A slow transition is the best bet to avoid upsetting their tummy and added stress. When I transition mine, I give 2tbsp canned pumpkin to them about 10 minutes before I give them their food; that helps them digest things easier.
If you can't get your hands on Fromm, www.dogfoodadvisor.com is a good website that has lists of 5 star foods they recommend based on your dogs individual needs.I hope that helps a bit!
