Where are your Yak Cheese Chews made?
Yak Cheese Dog Chews are handcrafted by dairy farmers in Nepal - following an ancient Himalayan recipe. Once they’re shipped to our US headquarters here in Rochester, NY, we hand-inspect and bag them ourselves, making sure you get the best quality and the tastiest chews!
How long do the Yak Cheese Chews last?
It really depends on your particular dog, their size and chewing style as to how long the chew will last them. Some dogs are able to chew through a Yak Cheese Dog Chew in 45 minutes, others take several days to finish one.
What is the Yak Cheese Chew made of?
Our Yak Cheese Chews are made with only 3 simple ingredients: yak and cow milk, lime juice and salt.
The lactose is removed during the curing process, which makes our chews lactose-free! Citrus fruits like lime are rich in Vitamin C and anti-inflammatory flavanone which is important for a strong immune system and maintaining a healthy weight.
Salt is equally important to a dog’s diet because it’s required for their cells to function properly /balance their electrolytes. It’s also a natural preservative! As is the case with most things in life, moderation is key which is why lime juice and salt only make up a tiny portion of our Yak Cheese Chews!

The Yak Cheese Chew is too big for my dog
There are a few options that may work for you:
1. Let the Yak Cheese Chew soak for a few hours in a bowl of water. Once it’s softened, you can break it into smaller pieces that may work better for your dog. However, please understand that dog chews should always be a little larger than the dog’s mouth to avoid them swallowing it whole.
2. Another option is to hold one end of the Yak Cheese Chew while you’re letting your pup chew on the other end. Not only does this slow down his chewing, it also teaches polite behavior around high value items such as our chews and provides bonding time between you and your dog.
3. Microwave the Yak Cheese Chew for 60 seconds. Then place the chew on a cutting board and CAREFULLY cut it in half using a large kitchen knife. This works best when the chew is still warm. Be sure to only give your dog one piece at a time and do not cut it into smaller pieces as your dog could choke if the pieces are too small.
