you can also stuff kongs with ground food and then freeze the kong. keeps them busy for a while.
Yup this is a great idea and I even feed Thumper half of his breakfast this way, as he eats ground raw in the mornings, I feed him half of his portion when he gets up, then the other half is frozen in a kong that I leave for him before I go to work.

On the whole convenience topic, I just want to add my opinions/experience here because I travel A LOT with my dogs, and both are raw fed. I bring my dogs on all kinds of trips from hotel stays for business or pleasure, rented ski lodges or condo's in the mountains, friends houses, relatives houses, camping in the RV, week long road trips from destination to destination visiting family and friends all over Alberta/BC, like.. we really do spend a lot of time on the road and I haven't found that raw feeding becomes a nuissance for us at all, but then again everyone is different, and I do understand its not always convenient, but its not impossible. If I can do it with a 20 lb and 45lb dog I'm sure it would be quite easy for one little dog.

Usually though, wherever I am going there is a freezer I'm able to stash some food in if necessary - this is never a problem for me, but may be for some. While travelling I simply pack a small cooler, I have all sizes of coolers on hand depending on length of the trip; and I put some freezer packs in it as well as all the raw frozen food and I pack it to my destination that way. If there's freezer space available I unload it there, and if not I refreeze the freezer packs immediately and keep the raw food frozen in the cooler, and just thaw out each daily meal in a fridge or in some cool-luke warm water in a sink or in a bowl, or on the counter. I pack mostly ground raw for trips since it is quite a bit easier and the dogs eat it right out of their bowls, but I do bring small prey model variety as well and raw meaty bones to entertain them while I'm out and about especially if I'm able to feed them outdoors, but if there's no place for me to feed them outdoors or on a deck or balcony I just pack ground raw. :)
