This is easy if your pup proves to have extremely high food drive. I feed regular meals and then I tend to use cheddar cheese for training. I have also used a little kibble (BilJac would also work) or Zukes. The cheese is a bit greasy in the summer, but it is soft and easily eaten by the pup.
The challenge is if the pup/young dog doesn't have high food drive and you need to use its meals for training. Raw is messy and gross to use in obedience. An option would be to use premade raw, roll it into small bites and freeze it taking out a meal's worth for each session. You would probably need to freeze the pieces on a cookie sheet so they don't stick together and then bag. For tracking I have cut up chicken necks into very small pieces and used those.
I am a 20 year raw feeder so understand the challenge.
