Yeah, but you get used to it. Once I lost a few fingers, I learned to feed him from a distance. KIDDING!!! As the others have said, there is no truth to this whatsoever, and like you, I wonder where people get it.CHOCOLATA said:My friend works as a massage therapist so she talks to a lot of people. Yesterday, one of her customers told her that dogs on raw food become aggressive : : : I wonder where people get this info ??? ???
I have had that concern as well even though I have not really started Caleb on birds yet. Actually I don't feed a lot of duck but I guess we'll see.Nick said:Now I know some hunters that are hesitant to feed their dogs the food they hunt (i.e. feed raw duck to Labs that duck hunt), and I can someone understand that. It could foster some confusion, although Jes seems to understand the difference.
;D Vicious Labrador!!! ;D ;DNick said:My overaggressive, meat-eating Lab just had an adorable incident with my Godson the other week and I wish I had a camera. My Godson is 13 months old and he crawled up on Jes, was pulling his ears (at which point I said "be easy") and he started petting him. Jes turned around and gave him a huge lick (which a Lab's tongue compared to a baby's face isn't fair ) right across the face.
I feed duck but not very often, it is quite fatty. Chocolata does not hunt - I wish there was a place near by where she could. She would love it.Yellow Boys Mom said:I have had that concern as well even though I have not really started Caleb on birds yet. Actually I don't feed a lot of duck but I guess we'll see.
There was an incredibly interesting show on a while back (if only I had the money for TiVo) that was talking about how all those instincts (chasing, tearing, finding, etc.) have been separated in the various breeds and enhanced.They have a instinct to kill and eat food (or scavenge) Whether they are fed kibble or whether they are fed a biologically appropriate diet has NO bearing on that instict.
First part was on last Sunday, I think the second part is going to be on this coming SundayNick said:I think it was on PBS (one of those nature shows)...if I ever see it on again, I'll be sure in post about it in case anyone wishes to watch it.
