First of all, what is it?
Himalayan Dog Chews are made out of hard cheese made from Yak milk. Apparently this is a popular food for the people of the Himalayan region. The only ingredients are yak and cow milk, salt and lime juice.
Is it a good name? I think a catchy name could help the product. What about Yak Snax? Although, that could make it sound like it's made out of the actual yak.
Is it expensive? The price is a little high, but if they last a long time, I think it is fair. They are available in many pet food stores, however depending upon where you live you may not find them near you. On Chewy.com a medium chew costs $7.08
What are some of the advantages?
They are all natural
A cheesy flavor most dogs love
Chew is hard and long lasting
Unlike bones, it doesn't break and splinter. A dog works on the end, softening it with his mouth, before small pieces can be scraped or chewed off. When the treat becomes only a few inches long, you can microwave the little leftover nugget and it will puff up and become soft, and you can then feed it to your dog.
How long does it last? Chewing times vary--I read reviews where the chew lasted only 20 minutes, up to some that said it lasted for several daily sessions of aggressive chewing.
Will we try it? I'm always looking for an alternative to bones for my dogs. This seems like a great option, because you don't have to worry as much about choking or blockages. However, you should still supervise your dog, as you would with any chew treat.
Have you tried Himalayan Dog Chews? If so, does your dog enjoy them? How long did it last? If not, is it a product you would ever try with your dog?
