Both my Chi's are on the raw diet. Chi's actually should be on a higher protein diet. Raw isn't really a high protein diet exactly. It's more around the lines of 24-26%.

I would recommend something grain free because our little Chi's tend to pack on weight easily and the grains will do it. Innova EVO, Timber Wold Organics, Nature's Variety, Wellness CORE,and California Naturals are just a few grain free options. They do tend to get a little pricey, but the higher the quality(especially grain free) the less you have to feed. Before Raw I was feeding Innova EVO, and my pups were fed less than a cup a day, and a little goes a long way. I would buy a 13.5lb bag and it lasted 2 months for both of my Chi's. So techically you are paying less when feeding something that is high quality and grain free.

The poops are nice too because they are much smaller and less frequent. They also dry up to white things and turn to powder after a day or 2 in the sun.
