Raw rabbit is fine, but watch out for worms. I feed mine raw rabbits (the whole beast) but not frequently. Rabbits carry tapeworms which can transfer to your dog. Discard or cook any rabbits which have obvious liver disease or tapeworm cysts. Mixy rabbits, as long as they're not too far gone, can also be fed to your dog raw.
You can also freeze whole rabbits for a month or so which evidently kills tapeworms and their eggs, but haven't tried that.
Obviously keep up your normal worming programme, with proper worming tablets (not the ones from the petshop).

My dog was eleven or twelve months before he started cocking his leg. He still squats sometimes and he's over two now, but he walks with a bitch so maybe he's mimicking her. He'll cock his leg in his own good time.

Freezing is fine and there is no need to gut or skin, give them them the whole thing.
