Hi all, I'm new here and let me say I am totally surprised with whats in these dry dog foods. Hmm...I've read a lot of the topics including the stickies and I was wondering if anyone would reccommend a brand of dry dog food that my puppy (10 weeks old) can eat. I live in the Bay Area so maybe that will help for availability. Thanks for any help!

Hello :)

What type of puppy is your little 10 week old? There are many excellent puppy foods available to you, but knowing what kind of pup will help narrow it down.

A lot of dog food brands are now what is referred to as all stage you can feed right from puppyhood to senior age

For example Canidae http://canidae.com/dogs/all_life_stages/dry.html

or Natural Balance
http://www.naturalbalanceinc.com/dogformulas/UltDog.html

The Canidae website has a store locator, these tend to be smaller pet stores that sell mostly high end foods.
Petsmarts and Petco do carry little to no super premium foods.

If you prefer a puppy food
Innova puppy http://www.naturapet.com/display.php?d=product-detail&pxsl=%2F%2Fproduct%5B@id%3D%27502%27%5D

California Natural Lamb and Rice Puppy is a very simple food with really only 2 ingredients so less potentials for an allergic reaction

I've actually asked and "they" say Wolf Cub can be fed to small doggies too... It's not for x-large breeds or anything too specific, so they say.

Aside from Wolf Cub, I like the Wellness Super5Mix and the Canidae. Lotsa great stuff in there. Natural Balance is a bit grainy (grains are #1 on the list)...

Well Prin and Ontariogrey are here so you are getting good recommendations for foods. Stick with the high quality stuff and save money on vet bills.
