Raw Chicken diet

So for my French Mastiffs diet consisted of raw chicken quarters, bone in. He never liked eating the gizzards, hearts or livers, but he never had any problems from not eating them. The reason for the post is, would a Doberman be able to handle a diet like this? The trainer at petsmart said he couldnt feed his pitbulls that diet, he had to do boiled chicken (deboned ofcourse, boiled bones splinter and kill dogs), but the breeder I got my dog from said she kept all her dogs on that diet.

Just chicken quarters is not a balanced diet. The recommended proportions I've seen are 80% muscle meat, 10% edible bone, 5% liver, and 5% other organs.

Raw diets can be fine, but they MUST be properly balanced. The diet you suggested is not, and can lead to serious long term issues.

I highly suggest you find a veterinary nutritionist who is willing to work with you to formulate your raw diet, or a very experienced raw feeder.

The diet you posted is highly inappropriate for any dog.

That is a seriously lacking raw diet. As stated by Rosemary, you need more than just the muscle meat. I'd check out the site perfectlyrawsome.com for some guidelines. Its what I use for my dogs when I am making their raw meals.
