raw diet dog question

what do you guys that do the raw diet use to put the food in? i've just started introducing him to chicken leg quarters (cleaved in half) and it takes him about 45 minutes to eat them since his big teeth are just starting to come in. the problem is that he'll eat it in like 5 different spots so i follow him around with disinfectant spray and a towel until he's done. i resorted to feeding him outside, but with the cold coming on, he doesn't like staying out long enough to finish a full leg quarter (2 pieces). he won't keep the damn things in his oversized bowl to eat them so i'm just seeing what other people are doing or what you would suggest. i'm keeping him on his puppy food, solid gold's hunchen flocken and just augmenting with a leg quarter every day for now. (5.5 months old)

You could grind it. Would make it easier for him to keep up with. They tend to be messy eaters

Chicken bones are bad for dogs, the splinter especially if you chop/cleaver them and get stuck in the dogs throat

That's true only if they're cooked. Raw chicken bones are perfectly fine.

Every time we have wings I cut off the wing tips and save them in a baggie, then give them to the hound 2 or 3 at a time for a snack. She loves them. And when we bake a whole chicken, she gets all the liver, heart, gizzard and neck. She'll tear your leg off for that neck. I tease her with it and she can't stand it......she'll jump, circle around, bark, whine, sit down and look at me with her head cocked over and her ears up with that WTF look on her face.

A guy at work trapped 2 coons this week and skinned them. Had I been prepared, I would have gotten the meat and processed it up for the dog.

He's gonna trap more, though. We're talking about making his wife a pair of redneck leg warmers with the coon tail at the top/back of the leg warmer, and the coon face at the bottom as a flap covering the top of her foot. This will be worth a million laughs.
