there are so many great puppy foods out there . . .it is just a matter of preference and if you doggie will eat it
I feed mine one of the best: Innova dry kibble mixed with Merrick wet food.

Tatum eats Innova with the Grizzly Salmon oil squirted on it. As for treats, she usually gets yogurt drops but recently I finally got some Cheerios and she learned how to chase and catch a frisbee (one of those little soft ones) in NO TIME at all! She loved the Cherrios!! A good suggestion I've heard on YT is to use the frosted Cheerios or honey ones for the wee ones because it helps with their sugar levels. We're past the hypoglycemic issues so I use the plain ones.
Another suggestion I've heard was to use the Science Diet T/D food as treats. This is the precription one for teeth issues. I didn't want to use it as an every day food so my vet gave me some to use as treats for Tatum and Stormie (our Aust. Shep.). They're pretty great! It's hard to describe but the way the food nugget is made is different. Trying to explain..... when you break one open you see that it's got a different texture inside, kinda like a chex mix piece and the fact that it's real crunchy, when they bite into it, the texture of the food piece helps to scrape tartar off their teeth. Did that make sense? It's a pretty large piece of food but Tatum thinks it's a great occasional treat!

Stump is on Nutro Ultra Puppy, and he had Merrick's wet food, but we are switching him to his adult food now.. and I'm going with Merricks.

Innova Dry and Merrick wet is definately one of the best combos. I feed Loki Canidae which I am happy with - but it's an "all life stages" food and you are looking for puppy food. You CAN feed Canidae to a pup though. That's why it's called "All life stages" I have been feeding Loki Merrick wet for dinner occasionally and it's amazing.
