Default Kibble and raw??

I get my pup in less than 2 weeks. I've always fed my dogs grain free high quality food. However this is my first GSD and I really would like to feed her more raw. I do however want the option to give kibble. I have currently purchased Orijens grain free puppy for her kibble. Does anyone else feed raw just a few times a week?? Thanks!

I feed Orijen kibble and top it with a half cup freeze dried raw.

And you haven't had digestion issues? I'm more interested in the marrow bones, chicken necks, organs and such from my local butcher. I would do all raw but I have kids and work part time. Plus when we travel and I have a dog sitter I don't want them to have to deal with my high maintenance feeding issues

I feed raw and kibble seperately (kibble breakfast, raw dinner for example). You could feed 4 days of raw and 3 days of kibble, whatever you want and there shouldn't be any issues
