I think Orijen, Natures Variety Instinct and Acana are much better foods, but a lot of people have success with TOTW and are happy with it. If your boy does okay on it, doesnt have a lot of gas, then you might want to stick with it for convenience sake. You can research foods on the links I have in my signature below. I hope your mastiff isnt a male too. Doberman males are very much same sex aggressive.

If he's doing well on TOTW, I'd stay with it. It's a good food.

I second (or third?) staying on TOTW if the pup is doing fine on it. It's a good food. Plus, why buy two different foods if you don't have to ?

My dogs have done well on TOTW and Canidae. Both a little less expensive then Orijen. I tried the Orijen Fish and my older female and my pup both don't do well on it. Too rich for them....
It's hard to find foods that work....so if yours is working stay with it.
