Switching from puppy food

I have a couple of questions about switching from puppy food. Liberty is 8 months now so I'm thinking it's definitely time to switch to an ALS food. So she is eating Fromm Large Breed Puppy right now. If I switch to another Fromm food do I still have to do the switch slowly by mixing it with her puppy formula? I'm assuming that I do have to do it that way.

Also, she's ALWAYS hungry these days. She's always bugging me for food. At first I thought maybe it was just a phase. She's discovered that if she comes and whines at me, I'll get up and feed her. But I was just thinking that maybe the puppy formula just isn't satisfying her hunger anymore. Or maybe I've just created a monster by feeding her when she whines for no apparent reason......

Puppy food has more calories than adult food so I think she is just being a glutton like every other golden . If you are going to switch to one of the Fromm foods with grains then you probably will only need to mix the foods for a few days or a week if you want. If you are going to transition to the grain-free stuff then I would probably take a little more time transitioning.

Yep, mix it. AN=nd while puppy food does have more fat and calories, a Large Breed formula specifically has stuff in it that helps with bone growth and health since our large breed dogs can have some joint issues later in life.
