Usually I purchase the Ecokind Yak Cheese chews, but thought I would give these a try. Immediately upon opening there was an overwhelming smell of mold… and not like a cheese mold, more like a bathroom carpet in the basement smell. No thank you.
I ordered this for my puppy to keep him busy before bedtime. He does like it and it doesn't "give off" any chunks or dangerous scraps to be be afraid of with a puppy. Long lasting.
Heard these were a nice natural chew for your dogs that last longer than bully sticks - well at my house that's true as no one will eat/chew on these. LOL
I have tough chewers and have to watch them but once these are short they go into the microwave for 1-1/2 minutes and then they are the best crunchie treat ever!
I tried this brand recently because of the price. My 10 month old Aussie has been enjoying yak chews for months. When I open the box I noticed that the chews were darker in color And had a wonderful smoky smell. When my dog started to chew it broke easily into small shards. After noting how sharp the residual chew was I took it away. I spent the day with my dog vomiting up small pieces and her food. That night she started hacking and vomited blood and another sharp piece. I would be very hesitant in giving this product to my dog.
Our 2 Brittanies LOVE these chews. They will chew them almost non stop if we allowed them. When they are too small for them to safely chew them (concerned about swallowing them), we tried the microwave trick to make them "puff" cheese, but it did not work for us. They were still hard, but they are fantastic and between these and Elk Splits, these are some of their favorite hard chew treats.
I have bought different brands of these for my heavy chewing border collies without problems. I always take them away when they get small. Last week, my 36 lb border collie starting throwing up and 2 days later had to have bowel obstruction surgery where a piece about 2.5 in long was found in lower intestine. Some will say it’s my fault but it was not small, so not a size I would normally remove. A VERY expensive lesson, physically for Archie, and financially for me! I threw all the rest away . Just be careful! I have never had issues with the other brand I usually buy, but went cheaper. I guess you get what you pay for!
My 45 lb. rescue dog is a moderately aggressive chewer. He immediately took interest and loved these chews, and this box is the best value I've seen for yak cheese chews (these get pricy!). As seen in the photos, my box came with 11 decently sized chews that were a good fit for him. This treat is great for chewers who can tolerate dairy, and it lasts long...enough. But if you're getting this as a boredom buster for when you're gone, please do be careful. My dog worked through an entire stick in a day, got sick and ended up regurgitating a large chunk that was irritating his stomach the subsequent day. I think this is a great high reward treat with limited chewing time - just because it can be finished, doesn't mean it should (i.e. feed in moderation and pace). Personally, I'll probably be sticking with a stuffed Kong or a Benebone (supervised) as my default boredom buster (low risk from unintentionally enthusiastic ingestion of the treat).
The Tibetan Dog Chews are the best chew I have purchased in 43 years of raising dogs. Our lab was finishing bully sticks in 30 minutes, the Yak chews will last her 2 days. When it gets too small, I microwave it for 30 seconds and she continues on. She would swallow the bully sticks when they got small. I love shopping at Chewyl, you always have what I want in stock , have great prices and even faster delivery. Keep up the good work!
I’ve purchased 5 different brands, in my quest to find the perfect yak chews. These are it. They last a couple of days and the dogs love them.
