What has been your experience with feeding your dog a raw (prey model) diet?

My sister-in-law, who is a certified dog trainer, has been looking into the best diet for her dogs and ours. On her recommendation we switched to Canidae, but recently she discovered that Canidae changed their formula without making it widely known and a lot of people have been reporting problems with the new food. So now she's looking into the raw diet. She sent me a bunch of links, and I've been trying to do my own research, but a lot of the raw diet proponents out there have a very "conspiracy theory" tone to them. One author even went so far as to spell the word "kibble" as "ki**le", like it was a dirty word that needed to be censored.
Do you feed your dog a raw diet? How does that work for you? Our dog is a mixed breed, about 2 to 3 years old (not sure, he was a rescue), and he weighs 35 to 40 pounds.
