Per the breeder's instructions, I started transitioning our pup to adult food at six months. The change was very gradual.

Pups should start on adult food at about 1 year. You can start mixing in adult with her puppy food at any time now.

About a year old is a good time. You will read different ages to start adult food but if you feed a nutritious dog food one should be fine.

You never feed Puppy food, never. Pups should be started on adult dog food at 5 weeks of age. I soften it with goats milk (It comes in a can at the store). Puppy food will give pups bones that grow faster than the muscle and causes problems especially in large breeds.

I have always started my pups on adult food at about 1 year. This seems to be the average that most vets recommend. Just make sure you choose a good quality food (which will vary by opinion) mix it with her puppy food for awhile (to avoid tummy upset) and she will grow up to be a happy, healthy dog.
