|My sister just got an Irish Wolfhound puppy. What age will she want to switch her off of Large Breed Puppy Food and onto adult food? Since they aren't mature till they are several years old does she wait until the pup is 2 years old to switch to adult food?|

|Your puppy's transition to adult food should begin when he approaches adult height. His breed type will also help determine when to switch. As your puppy is a wolfhound and that is a large breed of dog, you may want to wait until she's around 12-24 months old.
Large and giant breed dogs, those weighing more than 50 pounds when fully grown, might not be ready to switch to an adult food until they're 12 to 24 months old.
