I haven't made the change to RAW yet, but I'm getting set to. I have a female Drahthaar that has passed all her tests and x-rays and planning a litter late spring.

Thank You. Yes, I'm planning a litter late spring. I had had English Springers and breed, trained, hunted and trialed. Due to life getting to complicated and had to give it up. Still kept a dog or two but couldn't be involved as I wanted to. Now that I retired early I can donate my time to my dogs. I feel in love with the looks, versatility, and temperament of the German line of Drahthaars.
Uncertain about weening puppies on RAW. I need to see how Sophie will do after I start her. My concern is, if I would ween on RAW, most likely puppy buyers won't and then change to kibble. I'm not comfortable of a drastic change of feeding, RAW to kibble, on a 10-12 week old puppy.
Well, I'm still researching...leaning towards I will. I need to get another freezer designated for canines. I hunt and have two deer in the freezer and still have time to get another just for dog food. I guessing around March to make the change. I plan on having a good stocked freezer before I do. I also know a group that buys Eureka and have invited me to join them. A little concerned...been reading on Facebook, Raw Feeding FRIENDS, and people talk a lot about diarrhea, or just the opposite, not going for a couple of days. Also, getting something stuck in their throats. I have no doubt of the health benefits of feeding RAW, I just got to get everything in order.
I apologize if I offended you by mentioning a different group. That was not my intention. I only wished to state that I am researching the RAW feeding style. I've been around canines for a long time in feeding, training, competing and breeding. The main thing I've learned is, that what's works for one may not work for another. A person has to develop what works for their own pack. I'm in research mode for feeding RAW. I take all information and come up with what I feel will work for my dogs and I. Again, if I overstepped, I apologize.
