Default Frozen Yogurt?

Sorry if this has already been discussed, but I couldn't find it if it has, so....

I've been feeding my dog plain yogurt every day for the benefits of the probiotics. But I'm having a hard time going through a whole container before it goes bad, and also I'd love to feed it in frozen kongs and stuff. So I was wondering if anyone knows if freezing regular yogurt will kill the bacteria?

I have read that freezing only kills a little bit of the bacteria in regular yogurt. I use this for Brody http://www.stonyfield.com/ and I read on their site that they have so much added bacteria goodness that freezing won't affect this yogurt.

Freezing does kill bacteria, but not 100%. This is why frozen chicken still needs to be cooked. It may still contain Salmonella bacteria.

Depending on many factors (age of yogurt, speed of freezing, etc.) frozen
yogurt may still contain viable (i.e. alive) bacteria.

So it's possible, even likely, that frozen and thawed yogurt will contain
living lactic acid bacteria, although it may only be 10% or 1% of the
total number of bacteria that were there before the yogurt was frozen.
