Generally speaking, if the vet feels as though your dog has developed naturally, meaning he is a good weight, size and healthy for his breed and age and then bingo 1 year is the magic "I'm an adult" number. So you can buy a small bag of Blue Buffalo Adult food and start mixing it with the puppy food half and half until your run out of the puppy food or the dogs belly adjusts to it, whichever comes first.
Also, remember that just because he liked that specific puppy food does not mean he'll like that specific adult food so do not be afraid to try something else if you've been wanting to..Orijen, Wellness and Nutro all have great nutritious products that having varying flavors and prices.
Hope this helps! Happy pet shopping n loving!

I have both my ADULT dogs eating this food. I think it depends on your dog. Mine are large breed and VERY active, they have 10 acres to run around on. This food is the only one that keeps them at a healthy weight. Adult foods do not contain enough protein and so they slim way down. Watch your dogs weight and bowl movements and that will tell you which food will be best for them...I tried A LOT Of brands or kinds for 90 days each to find the one RIGHT for my guys! All the best!

You should most likely switch to adult food at one year!

I was advised by a Blue Buffalo rep, the vet & other large breed dog owners to keep our lab on puppy food until she was a year & a half too. So Bella just began the switch to adult food. You may need to watch the portion size too to maintain a healthy weight, Bella started to gain extra more easily at this age.

I would switch to the adult food until my puppy turns into 1.5-2 years old. Because large breed puppy will completely finish growing during that age period. I also asked the nutritionest in Petco, she is agree with me.

He should be ready to transition over to adult now. Just do it very slowly, mixing a small amount of adult in with mostly puppy, and gradually transition over a couple of weeks.

This came up during a conversation I had with a Blue Buffalo customer service rep yesterday. For large breeds, they recommend feeding puppy food for 18 months, otherwise it's one year. Hope that helps. :-)
