You can definitely use kibble if your dog will work for kibble. Around the house I've used it a lot, especially with puppies - I'll use part of their meals as training treats. But as Jane said, often you need something of higher value, especially in distracting environments.
Practically any treat can be cut into small pieces - jerky (I like Solid Gold brand) treats, freeze dried liver, and roll foods like Natural Balance, in addition to people food such as cheese and hot dogs. Zukes Mini Naturals are the perfect size as-is, or they can even be cut in half to make them even smaller. Ideally, your treats should be about the size of a small pea or less.
