Just a note: Heart and chicken gizzards count as meat, not organ, as they are muscle. Most commonly fed organs are kidneys and liver--liver being the most important to make sure they get several times a week.
And if you're scared because you're dog gulped down their food quick on kibble, you can feed frozen and it will slow them down. That's how mine are fed.
Yup--I had to feed my Sam his food frozen (including bone-in stuff) for about a year b/c he bolted it down (and then horked it up). Eventually he relaxed and now I thaw it.
Oh, almost forgot, my dogs eat outside cuz I don't want raw chicken all over my house.
Another option is feeding in a crate (plastic vari-kennel type) w/ no bedding. Easy to clean (I just spray w/ vinegar and water once a week and wipe down) and keeps the dogs separate to avoid food guarding issues.
