I do wonder about the fat level, though, and what you say about the production, @Marine91, makes me question my choice!
    @raghu, I believe that is similar to the way people here used to make soured milk! Now the shops are full of these products so noone makes them at home anymore, I think. It's very common here to have soured milk or yoghurt with some kind of cereal for breakfast.

    And I remember drinking lassi (I think that is the word?!) when I visited India many years ago. That was good!
    All the way from Turkey to the sub-continent one form of curd/sour milk or the other is consumed.
    In Turkey it is called ayran, in the persian region it is called doogh, in the sub-continent it is lassi.

    Curd goes sour if it is left outside for more than 24 hours in hot weather.
    Since you are in Sweden, warm weather curd-wise is 2 months a year
    Anyways if you refrigerate within 24 hours, it arrests the bacteria from making it sour.
    Active culture in this curd/yogurt is beneficial to humans and dogs for digestion.
    If you feel it is fatty, water it down, use 2% fat milk or make buttermilk by whipping it and skimming of the fat.
    This way the active culture (one form of pro-biotic) still remains and the fat is out.

    My dogs love cold curd with mashed rice and boiled eggs. I give it to them once or twice a week or when they have tummy upsets.
    Once in a while they have tummy upsets as the greedy dogs wolf down RMB or eat leaves and dirt.

    As per your original concern of constipation, adding yogurt or a tsp coconut/olive oil helps.
    Dogs need protein/calcium from animal sources; so don't skimp on this unless advised by a vet.

    Cheers,
    Raghu

    Fat is not bad for dogs, it's really the main source of their energy and 10% is not high in fat. It comes a problem with high amount of simple carbs.

    A lady from India works with my boyfriend that told him she does it on a regular basis... never buys yogurt, she always makes her own

    At $5 a week for both my guys, I just get the greek yogurt and it saves me the hassle of making it, but I'm lazy! I'd like some more information on the biproduct waste of greek vs. any other gurt'.

    Hmm.... I found these articles

    Greek yogurt waste 'acid whey' a concern for USDA: Jones Laffin

    Whey-ing Greek yogurt’s environmental impact – Eatocracy - CNN.com Blogs

    Benefits Of Greek Yogurt Do Not Include Its Whey Byproduct: New Solutions Turn Waste Into Money

    After reading just these three articles I don't think it is going to stop me eating the small amount of Greek Yoghurt I do eat, and Monty usually has Kefir which is high in probiotics.

    Nah. That wasn't my intentions by any means. Just putting info out there on why I chose not to use Greek yogurt is all.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Oh I understand, believe me. Unfortunately, it seems a lot of things have a downside. Slurry from pig farms, waste water from poultry processing just to name a couple. The trouble is I love pork roast and I eat a lot of chicken. Where do you draw the line....

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whey

    Athletes around the wordl use this whey, so it can not be that bad....you can even make your own bread dough in to that...

    I think it's called acid whey in those articles just to make it sound bad. Sour whey is more accurate.
