Wellness dog food - anybody use it

Our year and a half old labradoodle ate Nutro natural choice puppy food as a puppy and loved it. When she was well over a year old we switched to the Natural Choice large breed dog food, and she does not like that as much. She will eat it, but not as enthusiastically as the puppy food. Apparently that is because the puppy food has more fat, therefore more appealing taste.
After reading the forums here with the discussions over the pet food recalls, etc, I decided to try switching her over to Canidae. The problem is that it's not availabe in our local pet store. They carry Wellness, which they say is equivalent in quality to Canidae. Does anyone have any experience with Wellness? I would appreciate your opinions.

I did switch to the adult Nutro Natural Choice, but Sadie doesn't seem to care for it much. She gets all excited about being fed, but then when we put it in her dish, she sniffs and walks away. Later, she will come back and eat it. So I thought it might be time to try another type of food. She is 55 pounds, so considered a large breed.
I bought some Canidae and Sadie seems to like it - so far so good. It is interesting that the Life Stages is for every age of dog from puppy to senior. Other dog foods have so many different kinds - puppy, adult, active, sedentary, senior etc. Is this a marketing tool? Or should they have different formulas according to their "life stage"?
Sadie has been on Canidae for a few weeks now and really likes it.
