You have probably heard a lot of 'Yakety Yak' about these Himalayan Yak Snack dog chews and wondered if all the hype could possibly be true. Well, we've tested them with our dogs and can categorically confirm, it is! They love 'em and so do we because: they don't smell bad; they don't go squidgy and mushy; they last ages (depending on your dog of course!) and your dog can consume the WHOLE thing, even the bit left at the end (see below)!
Apparently the good folk of the Himalayas love to snack on a hard smoky cheese and someone discovered that this also makes a fantastic natural, tasty chew for dogs to enjoy too. So this 100% natural hard cheese is now available as a dog chew. Traditional made using yak and cow's milk from local farmers and dairies in the Himalayan region, Yak Snacks are now made in the EU to much higher European standards, whilst still maintaining the standards of the original Himalayan version.
Yak Snacks are completed grain and gluten free. They contain no preservatives or additives whatsoever and are made using 100% human grade ingredients. The resulting is a long-lasting chew of hard cheese that dogs find quite irresistible.
Depending on the size of your dog and their chewing habits, these hard cheese sticks can last quite a while. Your dog will enjoy working on the ends of the sticks until they eventually soften enough that they can chew off a small piece.
There are so many great benefits to giving your dog a Yak Snack to chew. It's difficult to know where to begin, but here are just a few:
100% natural and organic, contains human grade ingredients.
Gluten free, grain free and no artificial preservatives.
Rich in calcium and protein.
No unpleasant odours.
Great for promoting oral health.
A percentage of every sale is donated to help under privileged children in Nepal.
Yak Snack dog chews are sized according to their weight.
Small: approximately 30-35g
Medium: approximately 70-75g
Large: appoximately 140-150g

Once your dog has chewed their Yak Snack down to just a small piece, take it away and...stick it in the microwave!! Put your piece of Yak Snack on high for 45-60 seconds and it will puff up just like magic..pouff!! The texture of the microwaved Yak Snack end changes to something more like a crunchy honeycomb or pork scratchings. Once cooled, you can give it to your dog who will continue to crunch on it until it's completely devoured.
Yak Snacks contain all natural ingredients with no binding agents or anything artificial.

Like all other chews, you should supervise your dog when they are gnawing on a Yak Snack and remove it when it becomes small enough to swallow. You can then put the remaining piece in the microwave and follow the instructions on the label to watch it puff up, then once it has cooled you can allow your dog to crunch on this until it has been completely devoured.
