It started in 2003 with an idea born out of curiosity. Two brothers, Suman and Sujan Shrestha, their friend, Nishes Shrestha, and Kaos, the dog discovered that dogs love Churpi; the traditional Nepalese chew made for people of the Himalayas. They spent 4 years re-engineering the traditional ancient recipe by removing the lactose and fat content; creating a healthy, savory long-lasting chew for dogs now known as The Himalayan Dog Chew.
From the humble beginnings at a small local pet fair in Bellingham, WA to the award-winning company we are today, we have led the pet industry in an innovative new direction with our original hard cheese chews; creating a new category within the pet industry – a category our loyal customers love. We pass on our gratitude to those loyal customers through our Loyalty Program, where every purchase is rewarded.
Himalayan Pet Supply has always believed in giving back to the community, especially farmers, who the company trusts are the heart of the global community. The company started in Nepal with small family farms and today partners with farmers around the globe as well as locally, with a Washington State dairy farm, producing 124 million pounds of milk per year. Now, Himalayan Pet Supply is certified for quality by SQF, APHIS, AIB, and WFTO.
