home made food is always the best

There are a lot of good dog foods out there. Go grain free, just in case your dog would be allergic to the grains in many of the dog foods. Go to a big pet store & talk to the employees, ask what sells the most. You'll probably get some good answers here.
There is no 'best' in terms of dog food, other than the best is the one that best suits the dog, individual and breed. And the breeder should know best what food that is. You should continue to use the same food he was being reared on by his breeder although with the exception being if the food isn't suiting the dog, or is outright poor food, then switch gradually over at least a week.
If feeding a complete food, choose something listing meat, or fish as the first and so main ingredient. Avoid anything listing cereal as the first ingredient because that's just bulk, and goes right through without being properly digested (often resulting in stool eating as it's still appealing). And I have a 'thing' about feeding a puppy something with a very high protein level with the exception being small breed puppies who do need more protein. If you use something over 26/27% protein then it causes too much growth, too fast = bone /joint development issues.
And costing more than other brands doesn't always mean the food is better.

Healthest? Raw and bone!
Best to keep a puppy on the food its breeder has been feeding it until the pup is 4-5 months old and then change gradually to a good brand of complete dog food.
There are so many brands on the market it can be confusing, but any good dog food should contain at least 20% meat and not contain wheat filler or too many other fancy ingredients that are not really necessary and could cause allergies in the dog.
