A raw food diet will make my dog aggressive? In our opinion, there are no “bad” dogs, just bad huumans (pet parents / guardians). We are not sure what the concept of “bloodthirsty” means, exactly, considering that dogs are “hunters”, and so are cats? How does fooding a dog what it was designed to be fed make it bloodthirsty?

Like their huumans, cats and dogs have their own fooding behaviors. When observed closely, you will notice small differences between mutts, pups, masters and nobles. Some research indicate that these differences start right from the food selection step, when the bowl is offered. The whole food selection routine requires organoleptic attributes of the food such as odor, taste, and texture.
