I used to train Emmie with Zuke's Mini Naturals and I would cut them up in half or thirds but I stopped buying them because they were bought out by Nestlé Purina and I don't like some of the ingredients.
Yes, we use Ziwi Peaks too. I don't think I've ever seen K9 Naturals. I'll keep my eye out for them.

Tonight I bought a small bag of chicken Stella & Chewy's patties. Thought I would break the patties up and use as treats. Scout and Truffles loved them. I purchased ZiwiPeak about four weeks ago which they did like. Unfortunately it caused upset tummies. Today I noticed the food had mold on it Maybe it would have been a good idea to refrigerate it. I feed them chicken breasts and Orijen Regional, but thought they might like a change.

Can the freeze dried food be added to their regular diet? Or will it upset their tummy?

Some people think you shouldn't mix the two because they might digest differently. Nature's variety sells kibble mixed with freeze dried raw pieces. Molly did not have any problem when I use the freeze dried as a topper to her regular food. She loves it!

Emmie is fed a variety of food/proteins and doesn't get gastro distress with it; for example, I may feed her Honest Kitchen Embark/Keen or K9 Natural (frozen) in the morning, and ZiwiPeak or a raw bone in the evening. And occasionally she might get a couple of these in the same meal. Our schedule changes a lot, we travel a bit, and aren't at home for every meal so her flexibility with food (and life in general) is a godsend.

I used Stella and Chewie's freeze dried raw duck for training treats for Hallie. I hadn't given her much at all but she ended up in the ER with pancreatitis from them. So be sure to watch the fat content.
