Every day I'm getting more and more tempted to try raw… The main thing that held me back before was the messiness and management issues. We don't crate the dogs while we feed them, just separate them in different rooms. I've offered Bowdu raw a long, long time ago and he wouldn't touch it. It may be a different story now...
a lot of dogs just need to get used to it, and they also will have their preferences, I also have these complete meat mixes in my freezer ( salmon mix / bird mix / meat mix etc ) those are allready grinded and complete, comes in handy in winter when I can not let my dogs outside for a long time to eat and in my house I do not want them to have raw chicken and fresh tripes etc haha
my dogs needed to get used to some food like liver, I cooked it slightly at first and then started to give it raw after they were used to the slightly cooked version, same with heart.
here is a list of my dogs and their preferences so you can see how different it can be:
Jenson & Kalusha eat everything but Kalusha does not fancy fish only the salmon mix.
Solar, Smitthy and Cy eat everything but NO duck and they do not fancy goat meat also, goatribs are ok after they have been lying in the garden for a day or two…. ( the ribs not the dogs ofcourse haha ) they do not fancy fish, only the salmon mix.
when I give fish they try to burry it in my couch or roll in it.....no good idea...
Barry only eats tripe, cartilage , lambribs, horse meat, cowmeat, fish and salmon heads he does not want to eat chicken or other birds!! when it is in a mix he eats it but not with pleasure haha, raw liver and raw heart neither.
