Depends on the breed, what breed of dog do you have? And what brand are you feeding?

Well most expert says it depends on the breed and when the dog finally reached it's adulthood, here's a measurement:

* Small-breed dogs that weigh 20 pounds or less when fully grown are usually ready to eat adult food at 9 to 12 months of age.
* Medium-breed dogs that will weigh between 20 and 50 pounds as adults normally mature at 12 to 14 months of age.
* 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.
