Long lasting, great tasting, and durable, this is a fantastic chew for your puppy. It comes from an old recipe found in the Himalayan mountains and is the perfect, delicious treat for your pup. Your pup needs to work on this treat for a long time before eating it. That makes it more fun for your pooch. They are also 100% digestible so you won't have to worry about finding little pieces of treat around the house.

Isn't salt/sodium supposed to be bad for dogs? The amount of salt included in the creation of these chews is negligible. It is included by the people as a flavor enhancer, not for the flavor itself.
Is the cheese fattening for dogs? The fat content is less than 1% of the whole product. But like any treat/chew, make sure you dog is not just eating these and is eating their dog food as well.
Are these fair trade? Yes, currently, the himalayan dog chew's Beyond Fair Trade policy is contributing to the economic development of the world's second poorest nation in Nepal. They are purchased directly from the farmers and help them make that extra money in one year, that they would not be able to make in five years.
Where are the chew manufactured? The hard cheeses are collected from rural community co-ops in the Himalayans (currently Eastern Nepal and West Bengla in India), which are then made using traditional methods for human (and dog) consumption.
What size should I give my dog? No size is too big and you can always give larger chews to smaller dogs without any problem. Generally speaking the small size is intended for dogs under 20lbs, medium for dogs 20-55lbs, and large for dogs bigger than 55lbs. If you have a voracious chewer, your dog should be given the largest size available and observed during the initial 15 minutes after the dog is introduced to the product. If it appears as though the dog is going to inhale the entire product before those 15 minutes are up, you should take the toy away and reintroduce it at a later time.
