Thanks, yes we have been told he is reaching sexual maturity but then our his behaviour specialist said that since it started when his litter picked on him and it has esculated as he has grown, it will probably still happen when he is neutered. We have set a date for him in January to be "snipped". At least then we can rule that out or hope it was the cause for his aggression.

I am OK with food aggression because it is towards other dogs, and it is only over his raw food. If someone tried to take my Steak I wouldn't give it up without a fight. I can take anything away from him, so can any other human, that is all I ask for. We feed in their crates so no issues arrise.

I was talking to a client at my work and we were talking about Raw Food, he said he is against it because it amplifies dogs behaviour. So, since having my dogs on the raw diet I have noticed that Tanner has started barking at people more, he is afraid of them but we started gaining control over it. Not sure if we have just slipped up and he fell back or if it has something to do with the food. As well as Tanner, our 5 month old, Titan has developed aggression towards dogs. He has always been a tough one and does not back down. He has been with dogs almost everyday since he was 9 weeks old. We have contacted a behaviourist in hopes that we don't have to switch from the Raw.
Also, Titan is very food aggressive with other dogs, which I am fine with because it is raw food, very valuable.
I was just wondering if anyone else has seen any behaviour changes when switching to raw. Other then the good stuff like more drive, nicer coat and teeth,and more energy.

You are never supposed to give the guts, that is where the parasites are.

Raw Food Diet > Transitioning to Raw

Hi there, we are new here.
I have 2 Aussies, Tanner our 14 month old and Titan our 5 month old.

I started them on Raw when my boss talked so highly of it and we had just brought Titan home. They were on raw for about a month and we were so impressed with their energy, coats, teeth just everything in general.

Then Titan got parvo and was in the hospital for 2 days, he fully recovered but we had to keep him on kibble until his stomach line recovered.
After about 2 months of being on kibble we decided to switch him back over to raw because Tanner was doing so well.
He is just on chicken backs at the moment, one in the morning, one at night. He has been having really bad diarhea, it wasn't like this before so I am just wondering if his stomach cannot process raw now. But I know when I was doing research it said that they are born to process meat rather then kibble, so I am just a little confused. I can't talk to a vet about it because they will just say put him back on kibble and recommend a vet brand.
I have added pumpkin with his chicken back, I am not sure if that is helping or not. It has been about a week now, before it only took 2-3 days.
Anyways, does anyone have any ideas of what this could be, should I just keep him on kibble since he had parvo? I really don't like kibble frown
