Proud of my Sully!

I have heard that at 6 months they will be fully-grown and can be switched over to adult food. I changed Sully over at 7 months from puppy to adult food b/c he no longer needed the added fat content in puppy food.
I think there are several different sides to this issue, though. You just have to look at your choices and reasons for each and make the best decision for your baby.

I am feeding Canidae All Stages which I feed to both my puppy and adult but, when you are going from puppy to adult I believe the vets, and breeders, will tell you to keep them on puppy food for a year.

In my research and talking to vets, I have found that a year is best. However, I'm not a professional or anything - Pixie is my first dog... and obviously my first Yorkie. And she's only 10 months old...
I still have her on puppy food and intend to keep her there until her first birthday. Then we can look at other options.

Am I the only one who remembers that commercial:
Puppy Chow for a full year
Til he's full grown ?
Of course I wouldn't recommend taking a commercials word for anything.

Is that canidae expensive? Average cost? Nutritious enough and small enough?
