Welcome to raw! I started my dog on raw about 8 months ago, and the difference has been amazing. I initially started because she had recurring fur loss, but the biggest change has been her demeanor. She is so much more calm, happy, and loving than she was before!
Doing raw on your own is not as scary as it seems - the best advice I got was to start small with one or two types of potien and increase your variety as you get more comfortable. Try whole smelt or sardines, which are easy for dogs to eat - I often give them to Pepe straight from the freezer. Chicken necks are also great, the bones are soft and easy to chew. There are more and more raw food suppliers popping up daily, most of them are very supportive and helpful.
Good luck, I'm sure your dog will love it!
