So the breeder where we are getting our yellow girl from this weekend is feeding Puppy Chow. Not a fan of Puppy chow. How long should I feed her this and when can I switch foods? Any suggestions on what kind? Have been looking at Nutro Ultra puppy. Thanks.

Hopefully you chose this breeder because you trust her and her breeding/puppy raising program. This includes trusting that she knows what food works best for her puppies and dogs.
If you trust the breeder, this question is probably best directed to her.
If you must switch the food, continue to feed the puppy chow for a bag or two, then maybe do a small upgrade to something like Pro Plan. You'll see runny poops if you go with something too rich.

When we got our puppy home he was on Purina and we took over a month to switch him to Blue Buffalo Wilderness Large Breed Puppy and he got the runs...after multiple tests and everything coming back negative we were give Purina special diet and switched him over to Blue Buffalo Life Stage Large Breed Puppy and he's been doing great. Some foods just don't work.
