I agree that a raw diet needs some bone. Also, if feeding partial raw, I would invest in a scale to help you weigh the food. Pups on a full raw diet should eat between 2-3% of their expected adult weight. For me, the weight of the meal is just the meat/bone. Anything like yogurt is a topper and doesn't get weighed. When feeding my pup, I also take into consideration that I am feeding a lot of training treats (mine is a dehydrated raw so it is balanced) and I ended up lowering the food a bit since over feeding can also cause loose stools.
