The Best Kept Secret of the Himalayas

Benefits of Himalayan Yak Chews:

1.) Free from preservatives, chemicals, or additives! 

Many treat companies use added ingredients to cut costs. Whether to extend shelf life, improve flavor, or otherwise affect profit. Yak Chews are just four simple, natural ingredients: nothing else. 


2.) A low or no odor treat: 

Natural pet treats tend to mix with canine saliva resulting in an extremely stinky situation. But don't worry, these Yak Chews are completely odor free and won't smell-up your house. 


3.) Free from dyes that can stain your carpeted floors: 

Another drawback to natural treats are what they leave behind. Stained carpets, dyed floors, and other permanent marks. Give out Himalayan Yak Chews anytime or anywhere, and trust your home will remain spotless. 


4.) Fully digestible: 

Raw-hides are famously bad for dog's stomachs. Pieces can become lodged in their digestive tract, in addition to making your furry friend sick. Himalayan Yak Chews are formulated to be completely safe for canine digestion.


5.) Gluten and grain free: 

We often underestimate how dog's stomachs react differently to certain foods. Our Himalayan Yak Chews are completely grain and gluten free, and contain simple natural ingredients that are great for dogs. 


6.) Virtually lactose-free: 

You may be worried that the Yak / Cow Milk base will upset your dog's lactose sensitives. Luckily, through the process of making Himalayan Yak Chews, Lactose is virtually eliminated. 


7.) Naturally high in protein: 

One of the main benefits of meat chews like Bully Sticks, are their high protein content. But you don't have to sacrifice with Himalayan Yak Chews, as they provide a surprising amount of protein.


8.) Low in fat and salt content: 

Companies know that many pet parents don't obsessively check their dog treat's nutritional label. They pack other treats with fat and salt like junk food. Himalayan Yak Chews are different.


9.) Long-lasting: 

One huge benefit of Himalayan Yak Chews is their durability. Unlike many 'blink-and-you'll-miss-it' treats, these will be a challenge even for the most aggressive chewers.


10.) Thoroughly enjoyed by dogs of all breeds and ages: 

The best part about Yak Chews? Dogs find them incredibly delicious. The natural ingredients are ideal for canine taste buds. The combination of Milk, Salt, and Lime will satisfy even the pickiest of dogs.

Dental Benefits of Chewing 

Knowing you can make your dog happy and chewing on the right stuff can provide hours of affordable and safe chewing activity and entertainment for your furry friend. It's not hard to hide the happy times your pup will have with its own Himalayan Yak Chew. Vets and dog lovers alike love this dog treat as they remove plaque and promote good oral hygiene. That can help maintain teeth as your pups age, as well as improve breath by cleaning the crevices around their teeth. 

Chewing is a favorite past time for dogs and keeping them chewing on the right things, as opposed to your shoes or the remote, can be the difference between a happy, healthy pup and a trip to the vet. Providing dogs with the right dog chews is not only healthy for their teeth and gums, it can also help with anxiety, boredom and undesirable behaviors. With so many options out there, isn't it crazy that one of the healthiest best dog chew for your dog comes from the Himalayas?


Himalayan Yak Chews were discovered deep in the Himalayas. They are an all-natural, hardened cheese treat which villagers spent centuries perfecting. Called "Churpi" by locals, they were intended for human consumption and were known to be popular with locals. But there was something else that was widely known about Himalayan Yak Chews... they were often stolen by area dogs because they love to chew on them. 

The Himalayan Yak Chew Keeps Going...

Once your dog has broken his yak dog chew down into smaller pieces, you can place them in the microwave for approximately 30-45 seconds. This will puff them up  and make for a new, fresh crunchy treat for your pup. Be sure to allow the pieces to cool before giving them back to your pup. 

As with any item you give to your dog, be sure to watch them when giving your dog its Himalayan dog chew. 

The nice part about the Himalayan Yak Chew is that they last a long time. And who would have thought microwaving a dog treat would turn it into another fun adventure. But as soon as it's done (and cooled), dogs love crunching on their new treat!
