Default Another raw feeding question.

So I am almost out of kibble for my Chihuahua and am going to start feeding him raw as soon as he is done, but I know very little about feeding them raw, my older sister is helping me out as much as possible but she only knows about feeding big dogs not a small 9-10 week old.

The other day I didn't soak food for him before I went to bed and he was hungry so I cut up a bit of a chicken breast (I didn't really want to feed it to him cause I have heard it isn't good to feed it to them and then feed them kibble again but I really had no choice)
Anyway my older sister said you aren't supposed to cut up the meat??? I really don't not want to cut up the meat because I will be afraid that he will choke will that ever happen???
I am a massive worrywart! Can't let anyone else take care of my dogs cause they don't care for them properly and will let my big dog outside without watching her and i'm afraid she will go on the road and get killed. She almost got hit last year when I took my eyes off of her for a couple minutes. So that made me start worrying about everything often times even when there is nothing to worry about.
Also what kind of bones do I give him and how do I give it to him? I bought some chicken thighs that have bone in them but he can't eat a full chicken thigh even in like one day so how do I feed it to him, also how much of the bone should he be eating?

Any advice you can give me will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance for your time

Go to the raw feeding thread on here. There is a lot of info on the subject that will help you. Nothing wrong with feeding chicken. To cut up or to not cut up doesn't matter. By not cutting the meat, you pup has to work at tearing pieces off which is good exercise for him. Just make sure it's a big enough piece that he can't swallow the whole thing. Make sure you learn the heimlick for dogs as it's always a good thing to know for any reason.
There are many fantastic premade raws available today that makes things much easier. I use ZiwiPeak Venison, Stella & Chewies Rabbit, Primal Duck and also feed regular raw beef cubes.
