Here's a Yahoo group of rawfeeders:
It has more than 8,000 members, the archives are chock full of great info and the members are more than willing to help.
Some websites to check out:

Here are the basics:
Raw meat, organs and bones only (80% meat/10% bones/10% organs - 5% liver and 5% all other organs). No veggies, fruits or grains. Feed 2%-5% of your dog's ideal weight. Feed 1x per day. Start with chicken (unenhanced) and when you have no digestive issues for 2 weeks then introduce another protein source, 2 weeks with no digestive issues then it's time to introduce another protein source and so on. Feed big - stay away from drumsticks and wings unless they are attached to the whole chicken! Stay away from ground pre-made raw - way too much bone and you miss out on the many wonderful benefits of feeding whole bone and it's really expensive! Do not feed beef bones or any recreation bones. The bone you feed should be edible bone.
Hope that helps!
just curious...but what's wrong with giving a raw beef bone as a recreational bone if they are supervised and not hard chewers? i know their is a risk of a tooth fracture, but otherwise i'm at a loss as to why this is a "never".
