Congrats on the new puppy! I have a siberian husky (my photo here is of him as a puppy - hes now nearly 4 years). His diet is raw kangaroo meat and a good quality dry food (we use science diet). We have found it to be a great diet for him. He loves his kangaroo meat.
I am not familiar with the products you mention but I am keen on feeding dogs plenty of raw food - makes more sense to me. I dont recall ever seeing a wolf with a frypan over a fire...just my thoughts.
Definitely take it to school. Dont know Brisbane but most schools down here will give you the first lesson free with no obligation so you can check out a few and pick what suits.
