Default Skinners food advice

I'm looking for a little advice on switching to skinners for my Lab puppy.
Jackson is now 4 months and 2 weeks old. He weighs 19kg now and vet say's he is perfect build. He's not fat at all, fairly streamline with long legs and getting quite tall.

At the moment he feeds 3 times a day on hills science plan puppy at 480g per day in total.

He's a fairly active pup with loads of life but has his days when he's a bit of a couch potato!!

I'm looking to change as skinners seems value for money and has a good reputation but I'm unsure which one to start him on.

Looking for a bit of advise of where to go regarding getting life variety or field & trial range. He's not a working dog, just a lovable family companion.

He has around 25 mins per day walk and still can be active after his walk.

Field and Trial has the advantage that as it's aimed at working dogs it is vat free. But there is no difference as far as the dog is concerned.

Regards, John

Thanks John.

While I was at work today my other half contacted Skinners and they're sending us some out to try. I'll phase him in slowly over a week but I still have 15kg of Hills to get through.

He's growing so fast though but is such a loving member of the family, he's a very happy boy.

My two have been on Skinners Salmon for the past 6 and 7 years and are now 7 and 9 years old and still doing ok on it.
I find it good value for money for the quality of the ingredients. They always yum it down whether it's dry or I've soaked it or have splashed some water on it. They do get fed a lot less than the amount recommended on the packet so just watch that he doesn't gain too much weight.
Laura, Luna and Tucker too!
