Our Story

YAKERS, keeping dogs occupied for longer.

Made to an ancient Himalayan recipe, perfected over hundreds of years from our 100% natural ingredient, yak milk. We also add cows milk, lime juice and a pinch of salt before smoke drying for 28 days.

YAKERS, the 100% natural dog chew, traces its roots back to the picturesque hills of the Himalayas. Originally crafted for human consumption, these yak chews continue to be enjoyed by both the Himalayan people and their loyal dogs.

Each YAKERS chew is a testament to the rich traditions and unique craftsmanship of the Himalayan region.

Need to keep your dog distracted?

The extra long-lasting YAKERS chews help keep dogs occupied for longer, meaning you can carry out tasks without being interrupted. You can also use YAKERS chews during periods where your dog may feel more stressed to help keep them calmer.

The hard consistency of YAKERS chews ensures that dogs have to put in some effort to soften and break them apart, resulting in a longer chewing experience and helping reduce plaque and tartar. Each chew is also rich in calcium and protein thanks to the natural properties of yak milk.

For an added twist, simply pop the small end pieces in the microwave for 30 – 60 seconds until they puff up. After allowing them to cool, hand them back to your dog to savour and finish the whole treat.

Our Process

YAKERS chews continue to be lovingly handcrafted in the Himalayas, following age-old traditions that make each chew unique. Through the skilled hands of artisans, these chews are meticulously crafted, ensuring that no two are exactly alike. Just like your dog, every YAKERS chew embodies its own individual character and charm. Experience the authenticity and craftsmanship of the Himalayas with YAKERS, where tradition meets the distinct personality of your cherished dog.

1 It all starts with the Yak…

The milk gets delivered from Yak farms, local dairies and individual herders in the Himalayas.

2 The milk is turned into cheese

Once the cream is removed to make sure each chew is low in fat, we add a small amount of lime juice and salt to the recipe to help solidify the cheese.

3 The cheese is then compressed

Most of the moisture is removed from the hardened solids using a muslin cloth, this squeezes out any excess to get the cheese ready to rest.

4 Time to rest

Once the blocks are formed, they are left to rest for a few days, making them the perfect texture to be cut.

5 Then cut and smoke dried

Once each chew has been cut to size, they are hung on a wire grid in specialist smoking sheds and smoke-dried for 28 days.

6 And now available at your local pet store!

Yak chews are fantastic. My standard 8 mths old dachshund loves them. They are entertaining her for very long time and small pieces are microwaved so there’s no waste and she loves it. Healthy chew.”

Cockapoo loves these – chews through them in a couple of hours though- but good for some peace and quiet! Chuck the end in the microwave and it turns into a large popcorn- also very much enjoyed.”

Meg loves these. When she gets tired she goes for a sleep and comes back to it. A good distraction for a single dog living in an elderly home.”

Absolutely love these, the treat that just keeps giving. Used to get through chews so quickly but takes his time with this, loves carrying it around with him to find a good spot to lie down and spend the afternoon chewing.”
