Kuvasz Question

aggression with our Kuvasz Great Pyrenees mix dog


We acquired my parents dog which is kuvasz and Great Pyrenees (jewel). She is very loving and constantly wants attention. We love here dearly. We already had 3 other dogs, a Pomeranian (male), black lab (female) and a 13 year old Shepard Mastiff mix (male). None of our current dogs are aggressive what so ever. Jewel has now attacked our Shepard Mastiff a few times, and it has always been right after feeding. The attack has always been unprovoked from the shepherd mastiff (he was just walking by). Jewel has never shown aggression to the other 2 dogs. We are unsure what to do. Jewel is not fixed but thinking that might help. Is this a common problem with this breed?

Jewel should be fixed. But what could also be the problem is food aggression or possession aggression. Meaning she feels possessive of her things, such as a food bowl, because she is used to being alone and now she's not. Since your Shepherd/Mastiff is the largest of the three, she could feel him as a threat.
