I know of a breeder who transitions pups onto raw just fine..

There used to be a dalmatian owner on dogster, but they don't post here much so I'm not sure maybe they'll see this post and post their experiences.

Delta and Doc are two dalmations on this forum that eat a raw diet. I believe they are on a low-purine version of the prey-model, where the organ meats are replaced by either supplementing or veggie slurs. If you are looking to talk to someone experienced in the subject, I can drop their owner a line on facebook and let them know.

Thanks Charlie. I can't believe I forgot their names. hehe

For pups they seem to get used to raw bit faster then an adult who been on kibble all their life, but still good to transition a little don't want loose or watery poop from having such a big change..

Bone in chicken is usually what people start with pretty low in prices and can adjust fat by taking skin off. and bone is pretty soft compared to pork bones..

For a pup I never raised one on raw, but bone in chicken breast should work. Cornish hens which are smaller then big roasters might be good to start on as it'd be smaller.

If pup having issue chewing bone you might need to mash it with a hammer or something so soften it and soon the pup will be able to chew it with no help.

Be sure the chicken isn't enhanced by sodium or broth as the extra sodium can cause loose poop for some dogs.
