Eukanuba and RC are almost equally rated in dog food reviews. They are rated 3 star dog food brands. In India, they are the best as 5 star food brands like Taste of Wild are still not readily available. You can feed either of these brands as both are good for your dog.
Packed foods are preserved with chemicals which can be damaging in the long term health of your animal. They are like burgers and pizzas for humans.
You dog is 4 months old. I'd suggest feed him packed food for another 2 months and then switch to home-cooked food. Home-cooked food is best for your animal. I've seen dog that are fed home-cooked items are slimmer and live longer. You can feed variety of home items to your dog:
1) Curd- very good for stomach as it has enzymes which speed up digestion. It is also a good source of protein and calcium.
2) Rice mixed with chicken- Rice is a major source of carbohydrates and can be found in packed dog food. Rice is easy to digest. Chicken is lighter then red meat. You can also mix chicken liver which is good for your pet.
3) Eggs- You can serve them boiled and mix it in bread and feed as breakfast meal.
4) cottage cheese or paneer. It's a major source of protein.
5) You can feed all seasonal vegetables and pulses to your pet. You just need to ensure that it's spices free.
I'd suggest you feed supplements till he is 13 months old.

The reason why you should feed calcium and vitamin supplements is because your dog is going to grow rapidly in a course of time gaining kilos of weight in a due course of time. This rapid growth can cause excessive stain to the bones if they are not made strong enough to stand the body weight. Hence, bones and body weight should be proportionately made stronger other-wise if your dog has weak bones he made develop problems like arthritis, hips dyspepsia when he is adult.

Although Navjot gave a solid answer.....

And off course home cooked food are the BEST!!! They are both economical and good for dogs' health. You can now slowly shift to home made diet. While making changes in diet always be slow and make changes one by one and keep a watch of what is suiting him and what is not.

For supplements, not only calcium but also phosphorus and vitamin D3 are essential for bone growth. For vitamins, you can use "Verol" and "Pet n Tab".
