I had no idea what to make of these when my wife ordered them. My dogs weren't entirely sure what to make of them either when we gave one to each. At first, they treated them like most every other treat we gave them. Gnawed on them for about 20 minutes and then left them alone. We had been hoping for longer play, but after 20 minutes of nonstop gnawing, neither of my dogs had made a real dent. We took them away for the night and brought them out the next night. That's when it started.

After a night away, both dogs figured out what they needed to do to get something out of this nearly rock hard block of treat. Both need to hold it firmly and just keep scraping away. Both used them for almost an hour before I took them away because I was done listening to both dogs go at each one almost nonstop. Each block was still mostly the same length with a slight thinner edge where most of the chewing and gnawing had been going on.

Each has probably had one block for 7 or more hours now and it's about half gone. They know exactly what it is when I bring the bag out now and both head to their separate corners to go to town on their treat. My Bernese has figured out how to snap small bits off the now small piece and takes those down with ease. I figure each remaining piece has about 2, maybe 3 more hours of play left before they are gone. So, we're getting somewhere in the 8-10 hour range of play per treat, per dog. That beats out the bones they chew clean in a hour and keeps them occupied for a lot longer than any toy or treat dispensing toy I've used.

Definitely something we want to get again.

As advertised, fresh, NO mold, no odor. Our Golden Retriever Abby has food and environmental allergies. We only feed her limited ingredients dog food. Ditto treats, only Natural Bounty limited ingredients. She can't have rawhide or other hard chews, only deer antler. I was worried that these Gold Yak dog chews would give her an outbreak, but since the cheese comes from overseas, and it is grain free, we took a chance on them. Abby sniffed one and in no time set to chewing it up. She has powerful jaws, and it only took her about an hour to devour one of the three chews. That did not surprise me.
Been five days since today, and no change in her skin or behavior. We are pleased. She can break the stick into large chunks, but she just chews them up too. I wouldn't give them to her unsupervised. Keeping her occupied for an hour while I read or watch TV is great. No digestive troubles either, no gas, diarrhea, constipation.
She will get one every week or two now. And I will put them on subscribe and save now. We heard of the EcoKind Pet Treats via Whole Dog Journal recommendation. I read all the reviews, even the competitors reviews. It seems mold was a problem early on, but the distributor fixed that problem with how to store and ship. In the end I went with EcoKind and we are very pleased. Would recommend these chews to other dog owners.
Thank you EcoKind. Our Abby has been starved for a good chew for 6 years now. Between the deer antlers and these softer chews she isn't so deprived. She loves to chew, but has never damaged any of our stuff. She has the Nylabone type hard chews, but gets bored with them pretty quick.
All's well that ends well. Just wish we had heard of these years ago. Himalayan Gold Yak Dog Chews | Grade A Quality, 100% Natural, Healthy & Safe For Dogs, Odorless, Approx. 1LB Bag With 3-4 Huge Pieces, Treat For Dogs, Keeps Dogs Busy & Enjoying, Indoors & Outdoor Use

 I love my dogs but raising a German Shepard mix is not easy. I play with her, walk her, but she has a motor that won't quit. Sometimes I just need a break! I have tried all sorts of chews and after she passed about 3 months old, there is no enzymatic chew, greenie, or even a bully stick that can survive the jaws of this puppy for more than 10 minutes.

These Yak things are amazing!! Better than an elk's horn. My video says it all but make sure you know this: That's after over 30 minutes of working on it in the house. She took it outside to get a drink. She dropped it in the water and that's where the video starts.

She finally gave up on it after about an hour. AN HOUR!

So, if you want an alternative to stuffing a kong, these might work.

HOWEVER, two caveats:

1) My other dog, a pit mix, was able to widdle one down to about a 3-inch long piece in about 30 minutes. I took it away for fear of her swallowing it. You will need to watch your dog and see how it goes.

2) The puppy dropped another one I gave her and it broke into two pieces. I don't think this is going to happen every time but it can so, as always, check on your dog. Personally, I would not leave my dog unattended with one of these.

Great to see a quality treat that is healthy and easy on my Boxer (sensitive stomach)
She spent hours enjoying 1 treat (3 came in the pack) and she can be quite picky on what treats she'll commit to. The treat starts out hard as a bone about 6 inches in length and then gets softer and softer. I kept a close eye to see how it would break down. No choking issues and didn't leave a huge mess like some lesser treats do. Thanks Himalayan, my Boxer is a fan!

These chews are great. My 10 year dog (70lb) can polish one off in about 4 or 5 hours if we let her. The 3 year old border collie (40lb) would have it down in less than 3, but she is a relentless chewer that destroys everything in her path. They can leave small slivers are on the floor, but do not stain anything and are not messy. The chews are quite hard, so at first were worried with all the cracking and popping, but had no issues after a few chew session with them. As others have stated, you can soften them up in the microwave when they start to get too small. Best use for us is that they keep the dogs occupied when we want them to settle down or when we are working from home. They would chew on these 24/7 if we had enough of them. Best consumable chews I've had to date, we will be purchasing more of them.

These are life savers! 7 month old pup has been getting a pet store version of these since she was 3 months old. Heavily into chewing phase now. These are the same quality as the pet store version, but the price is unbeatable. I would recommend these to anyone with a “mouthy” or high energy dog. It keeps them busy and could save you from furniture chewing. Very good product. Large pieces as promised. Minus fancy packaging — at a very good price.

I have a medical alert Service Dog and I am extremely careful about what chews, toys, etc. that he is exposed to. The EcoKind Himalayan Gold Yak Chews are one of his favorites (and mine too) because of their care about the production and ecology. The slightly beat up package I received (still intact) contained three large yak chews, one of which kept my AmStaff happily chewing for hours. When it got about 2" long I removed it but he is not prone to just gulping down anything...I wanted to try the microwave trick which I have never done. Lasts longer than anything delish I have ever tried and unlike a rawhide product (which I would never offer him) or a "bully stick"...it has no odor to permeate your house! I like it and the best critic of such things, Chang, LOVES it. Great product!!!

These truly are huge ( not like most I’ve ordered which are cracking or already in pieces in the bag! They’re well made by far the best Himalayan chews I’ve ever bought I’ve tried 4 other brands!
Highly recommend these ! My lab can finish a bone off in 5 min a Himalayan lasts a bit longer but he was going thru them in an hour , this one is really dense bc he still had half left when I took it away for the night !
This on my new “go to “ hope they never change the recipe or mass produce and make them stale !

I was a little skeptical when I purchased these treats because of their cost. When I read all the positive reviews, I felt compelled to take a chance on a product I had never heard of before. Long story short, our Labradoodle Zoe absolutely loves them and spends HOURS chewing on them! In my opinion, these Himalayan Gold Yak chews are an ideal product (and a healthy alternative) to occupy our mischievous dogs time. A word of caution to pet owners. We have discovered that our dog loses interest in these Yak chews if they are supplied to her on a daily basis. We therefore recommend these chews as an occasional treat. Given sporadically, maybe once or twice weekly, our dog never loses interest or her cravings for Himalayan Yak chews. I cannot recommend this product highly enough. 5 Stars and two thumbs up!

My dogs loved these. I broke two in half as I have four dogs, and I wanted to save the rest for my crated dog recovering from surgery. All four dogs went to town and had each finished their parts in about an hour. I expected this as they demolish treats fast. Later I gave a piece to my crated dog only. Since the novelty was over, she only chewed on it off and on. This is what I wanted so it would last longer and be available to her in times of stress. Each piece lasted several days. The chews are too cost prohibitive to buy for my dogs that chew them up quick. They are perfect for my crated girl so I will be buying more just for her.
