Himalayan Dog Chews

If your dog loves to chew on his dog toys and chomp on bully sticks, dog bones and antler dog chews, try something new with Chewy’s selection of Himalayan dog chews. Himalayan chews are hard cheese snacks originally created in the Himalayas. Using an ancient cheese-making recipe from Nepal, Himalayan dog chews are handcrafted with yak and cow milk, salt and lime juice. Then, they’re smoked and pressed to create a hard, long-lasting, fully digestible, cheesy dog treat that is high in protein. Himalayan dog treats are made with only four ingredients, and they are gluten-free and grain-free. Some brands, like Himalayan Dog Chews, are even lactose-free. Just how hard are these chews? On a chew scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being an antler, the larger versions of Himalayan dog chews are around an 8 for a chew that’s challenging and doesn’t splinter. Softer versions, like Yaky Yum Himalayan cheese dog treats, offer a gentler chew that even puppies and senior dogs can enjoy. Himalayan dog treats are made to last and will keep your dog entertained and occupied for hours. In fact, it takes several hours of chewing just to soften the Himalayan dog treat enough for your dog to scrape off a piece of smoky, cheesy goodness. And Himalayan chews are low-odor and non-staining, so you don’t have to worry about lingering smells coming from that last tasty piece that your pup tucked under a rug. When your dog gets down to a small piece, there’s a spoiler hack for that! Simply soak it in warm water for a few minutes, microwave it for 45 seconds, then let it cool, and it will turn into a delicious cheese puff your dog will love. So whether you need a new dog crate, some more dog food or even a dog bed be sure to shop Chewy's online pet store for great deals on the best dog supplies!
