Dogs can’t resist our new, long-lasting chew treat.
You’ll love how they’re made of all-natural ingredients, they’re non-staining, actually have a pleasant smell, and, best of all, they’re good for your dog.
Why Yak Chews Are Replacing Rawhide As America’s Favorite Long-Lasting Dog Treat
For many years, pet stores carried dozens of varieties of rawhide chews – in many different shapes, flavors and colors.
All dogs need to chew to keep their teeth clean, to exercise their jaws and shoulders, and to stimulate their mind.
But rawhide chews are made of bleached hide, and often use glues, synthetic colors and other potentially toxic chemicals and processes to create those eye-catching shapes.
Rawhide also breaks down into a gummy, pasty substance that actually sticks to teeth and feeds the bacteria that causes bad breath and dental disease.
As though that’s not enough, many dogs have suffered gastric blockages, resulting in expensive surgeries and death from unnatural chews that are not as “edible” or “digestible” as pet owners were once lead to believe.
Himalayan yak cheese dog chews are made of three all natural ingredients: yak milk, lime juice and salt. The first Himalayan cheese snacks were actually enjoyed by humans, and now they’re still good enough for dogs and humans alike.
The lime juice and salt naturally preserves the treat, meaning no questionable chemicals are needed to keep these chews fresh and safe for consumption.
Cheese That’s Actually Good For Dogs
Dogs love milk and cheese – you’ve probably noticed that your dog will try to sneak a lick of milk from your glass, or run into the kitchen when they hear a cheese wrapper.
But most dogs are lactose intolerant. They may tolerate a small amount of dairy, but any significant serving can cause a tummy-ache, awful gas and “cannon butt.”
Yak cheese chews contain very little lactose, so your dog can enjoy their own tasty cheese snack without the explosive effect.
Naturally, no treat is tolerated the same by all dogs, and those with a sensitive tummy can feel under the weather if they eat too much at once.
Allow your dog to try out their new Himalayan Yak Cheese Chew for just a few minutes at a time, at first, and see how it works for them.
Chewing For Dental Health
About 80 percent of dogs will have some form of dental disease by age 3. This is due to the widespread use of processed diets, which are loaded that carbs that convert to sugars.
Brushing with an enzyme toothpaste is the best way to fight plaque, but it’s tough to reach your dog’s back teeth.
Chewing a hard, long-lasting chew allows your dog to clean their own teeth, even those stubborn back molars.
While chews are not a substitute for brushing, they’re part of a plan to fight dental disease.
How To Treat Your Dog To Their First Himalayan Yak Cheese Chew
Our chews come in multiple sizes – choose one that’s appropriate for your dog’s size, and size up if your dog is a heavy chewer or if they have wide jaws.
You can run one end of the treat under warm water to help release the irresistible cheesy aroma and pique your dog’s interest.
Always supervise your dog while they enjoy their chew. They should be able to scrape off small pieces as they go. These small pieces should be smaller than your little finger, and easy for your dog to chew and swallow.
Some dogs are extremely tough chewers, and may bite off chunks that could pose a choking hazard. If this happens, size up – or, the chew might not be right for your dog.
For most moderate and tough chewers, though, the Himalayan Yak Cheese Chew is a godsend. Your dog will choose it over gnawing at your furniture and getting into trouble. While many edible bones and chews break down quickly, Yak Chews last and last for hours of fun.
Two Treats In One – How To “Puff” Your Yak Chew
Most chew bones have to be discarded when they get whittled down.
Once your dog’s Himalayan Yak Chew is too small for safe chewing. Don’t risk your dog choking if they try to swallow it whole – supervise chewing and take it away before it is small enough to fit entirely in your dog’s mouth.
Stick it in the microwave on HIGH for 45 seconds!
Watch as it expands into a crispy treat.
You may need another 15-30 seconds or so before it stops growing.
Then, your dog gets a second chance at deliciousness.
Cut into small pieces if it’s too much for one serving.
Yak puffs make a wonderful training treat. They’re still naturally preserved with lime juice and salt, so you can keep them in a cool, dry place for weeks.
Storing Your Dog’s Yak Chew
It’s best to put your dog’s chew away after chewing sessions to prevent unsupervised use.
The low moisture content of the chew is part of how it stays fresh without artificial preservatives. So, if you stick it in a plastic bag while it is still moist with your dog’s saliva, it can start to accumulate bacteria and mold.
Instead, leave it in a safe place where it can air dry. Once it is dry, you can put it in a bag or container that allows some air circulation.
Your dog’s yak cheese chew can last for weeks, even months with proper storage and occasional, supervised chew sessions.
