So we get to go meet the pups this Thursday and take ours home on the 23rd! My daughter and I are VERY excited to say the least.
I have enough food in the freezer to feed Maximus for 6 months! So we're good to go there. But I do have a couple of questions.
1. Being I have a young daughter, I'm a little concerned about salmonela. Do you feed your dogs raw outside or inside? Especially a pup, who I can see playing with it first
2. For a pup, how should I portion the chicken breasts and other MM? Should I cut it up into strips? Should I cut it into chunks or should I just give him the whole breast so that he can tear it up himself?
3. The breeder is feeding a mix of kibble and raw, so I'm assuming Maximus will be ready to eat raw from day one. But... what if he has issues with it? How could I entice him to eat a chicken neck? Figured I could play with it and make a game out of it at first if need be.
4. Do you wipe down your pups paws and jaw after feeding raw? Puppy kisssing after eating chicken necks, calf liver and tripe don't sound too appealing
