Curious if people have tried some of the freeze dried options out there? I see Orijen has a few lighter options. Would hate to make my dogs sick by switching too much up on them while on the trail but kibble weighs a lot.

Anyone tried dehydrating kibble? Cheers

Default Lots of dehydrated options

Hi - I know this is an old post, but I thought I'd respond anyway in the chance that you get this. I handled this same issue with my dog by making him a "stew" with ground beef that I know that he can tolerate (he gets it periodically as a treat). I make big batches of it and then dehydrate it. It works out to about 300 calories per cup and each cup weighs an ounce or so. It is also much less bulky than kibble.

On trail I substitute about half Baker's kibble for the dehydrated stuff - which he likes either dry or rehydrated into a soupy mess (also good for getting more water into him on hot days).
