In a nutshell, yes you can! But only keep it down to no more than a tablespoon or so. And make sure the yogurt is plain yogurt, not fruity, dyed, or sweetened yogurt. Plain yogurt contains lots of good, healthy bacteria and digestive enzymes that are good for your dog to ingest. It helps keep their bowel movements regular.
Other good things to "top off" kibble with are fresh, raw eggs, carrots, apples, bananas, spinach, peanut butter, and lightly cooked mince meats of any kind. Also, by adding warm-hot water to kibble makes it seem much more appetizing than dry kibble. If your dog gets runny stools from eating so much "people food", then you can offer him some of the canned version of his kibble to make his meals more appealing.
Sure. Yogurt is safe. If your dog likes yogurt, put it on the food to encourage him/her to eat it. Plain, flavored, doesn't matter. Just don't use the fat free/sugar free stuff.
Is this something regarding your dog's refusal to eat dog food? Or is it to entice him/her to eat more?
Plain Yogurt is very yummy and good for the tummy. Not alot at one time-spoonful or so mixed in. As stated some quality wet food also a tasty mix in. Beef or chicken broth also yummy warmed up and spooned over kibble, let sit a little bit then serve.
