We've been feeding Royal Canin for that past few months now with great success.
I recommend ordering food straight from the Royal Canin website.
There is no charge for shipping no matter the amount you purchase.
When puppies reach 5 weeks of age, I will send out an e-mail containing a recommendation of the food we use. Within this e-mail will also have a coupon included. That way you can have food ready to go for when your new puppy comes home.
Your puppy will also go home with a Royal Canin Puppy Starter kit (if kits are in stock and I have them on hand) which contains a small sample size of their puppy food along with a tote bag, measuring cup, and coupon for your first order.
Not only that, I typically have a canister of food in each of my puppy packs that contain some probiotic for transitioning. It's best to use that little canister first since going home can be stressful.

Happy 1st Birthday Melvin!
We've had a lot of puppies and adult dogs come and go through the years in our program.
There were quite a few Matthew was very fond of... typically adults. So it's hard to see them go, but it's the nature of the beast.
But then low and behold, last year Matthew decided to pick out a pup for himself.
He chose a VooDoo x Stevie (granddaughter to Yeti x Echo) pup born on January 1, 2023.
I knew fairly early on that she'd have a blue eye and no one scooped her up. Everyone wants blue eyes, I thought for sure she'd be picked.
Then Matthew picked her.
I asked Matthew if he'd want to raise a litter from her. Told him the pros/cons involved and he decided he didn't want to take the risk.
I had Melvin spayed early on around 6 months old so he wouldn't have to deal with a heat cycle.
She's slept with him pretty much since she was 8 weeks old.
She's funny too.... he's got a little dog bed for her so whenever he goes to bed or whenever he's in his chair watching a movie or gaming, that dog is right there in her little dog bed. She's not cuddly with him which is perfect for him. It's like she knows how he is. It was so cute when he picked her out a Transformer toy when she got spayed that stays in her dog bed. That kid is addicted to Transformers.
But when Matthew's at school or at play practice and she's hanging out with me or Sean, she will be a lap dog with us.
He loves that little dog.
One year old and weighing in at 11 lbs 7 oz.
I told Melvin don't expect anything fancy today, gifts or treats or anything, Matthew's not that kind of guy.
I get a lot of questions about her name. It comes from a video game and a skit Matthew did for school on a Roaring 20's project. The names Melvin and Fenton were the characters. I actually played Fenton and used the name for a boy I kept back until Radish came along, and Matthew played the character Melvin. It just made sense to name her that.
