Thank you both for your comments.
Redwitch is a dutch brand I believe that she has imported.
I'll have a look again through the food directory taking on board the advice here.

I measure his foods and did give 10g less of the Canagen per meal (he's currently on 3 feeds a day of 50g on Canagen) it's 60g for Arden based on the guide on the packet he should be getting between 150 and 220g for his weight and age.

I've started putting in bits of chicken and rice to keep his stomach settled as part of his dry food diet.

I read that pups until 6 months should stay on dry food (soaked) - I can't remember the reason for it.
Was hoping to eventually switch to Nutriment raw food once he's older but since he knows dry at the moment we wanted to use that. But do put wet food in his kong and he seems alright on it - picked one with brown rice and veg :)
Will check out the cold pressed foods.

Thank you for all the advice again!

I've had my Corgi pup for 5 weeks now, he is now 15 weeks old.
The breeder had him on  Redwitch Puppy Complete: (Poultry meal (30%), brown rice, whole maize, chicken fat, sugar beet pulp, yeast, poultry digest, fish oil, minerals, linseed, yucca)
And said Royal Canin was the closest to it: (Dehydrated Poultry Meat, Rice, Animal Fats, Vegetable Protein Isolate, Maize, Beet Pulp, Maize Flour, Hydrolysed Animal Proteins, Maize Gluten, Soya Oil, Fish Oil, Minerals, Fructo-Oligo-Saccharides, Hydrolysed Yeast, Marigold Extract, Pentasodium Triphosphate, Antioxidants).

He was fine on Redwitch - regular poops nice and solid and dark of colour, but it isn't here on the site so can't tell  how good it was.
As we slowly introduced Royal Canin it became obvious it wasn't good - stinky farts, orangey poops that were less solid. I was coming up needing a replacement from Redwitch as it was running out and no local stockist, pet store recommended Arden Grange after showing them the label for Redwitch.
(Fresh Chicken 18%, Chicken Meat Meal 18%, Rice, Maize, Beet Pulp, Chicken Oil, Whole Dried Egg, Yeast, Fish Meal, Chicken Digest, Linseed, Fish Oil, Prebiotic FOS, Prebiotic MOS, Cranberries, Yucca Extract, Glucosamine, MSM, Chondroitin, Nucleotides.)
He is mostly ok on this but I'm not happy with the quality of it. So upon going back they suggested grain free freeze dried foods such as Acana, Canagen and the like. I picked up Canagen and tried to introduce it slowly but he ended up having really watery diarrhea  so we took him off it. (Freshly Prepared Chicken(26%), Dried Chicken (25%), Sweet Potato, Peas, Potato, Pea Protein, Alfalfa, Chicken Fat(3.1%), Dried Egg(3.1%), Chicken Gravy (1.6%), Salmon Oil (1.2%), Minerals, Vitamins, Glucosamine (1000 mg/kg), MSM(1000 mg/kg), Apple, Carrot, Spinach, Psyllium, Seaweed, Fructooligosaccharides, Chondroitin(700 mg/kg), Camomile, Peppermint, Marigold, Cranberry, Aniseed & Fenugreek.

I didn't know pea protein was bad as I discovered this site trying to find out why he was having such a bad go on Canagen.

So here I am seeking advice. Is grain free high meat content good for a pup or was it just too much too soon? What would you recommend for a good quality puppy food? Should I try Acana maybe?

Many thanks, Freijya
