With all the different dog food brands it can be difficult to choose one when you get a new puppy. When we got our Westie puppy, we asked our vet and a trainer, and we settled on trying Merrick. It is not the cheapest dog food in the aisle, but the expense is not prohibitive. What we really like about the food is the size of the biscuits. They are truly puppy sized bites and make it easy for our little one to eat them. The ingredients list was also very important to us and we have been happy with the quality. Our puppy always clears his bowl and keeps on licking it, so there have been no problems with him liking the food. Also, he has been very consistent when it comes to going to the bathroom, so it also appears very easy on digestion as well. He is a very fast growing boy with plenty of energy, so it really seems to fill him up. If there were someone who was looking for a new puppy food, I would absolutely recommend Merrick.
