What are Yitto Paws Granola Bites?
Yitto Paws Granola Bites are delicious dog treats made from simple, organic, human grade ingredients: oats, fruit, and peanut butter. It started out as a homemade recipe that our founder made for his dog and shared on his blog that went viral. Knowing that these treats were popular with people and their dogs, Yitto Paws was founded.
Where did the name Yitto Paws come from?
Yitto is actually the nickname of our founder’s sister-in-law’s dog. She first heard the word “yitto” when a child she was babysitting couldn’t pronounce the word little. From there we added “paws” and the rest is history!
Where can I find Yitto Paws in my area?
Right now, we’re just getting started so ordering online may be your best option. That said, if you can introduce us to the local pet store, groomer, veterinarian, or another suitable store, we’re all ears!
Are Yitto Paws only for little dogs?
No! Yitto Paws are perfect for dogs of all sizes. We do have a mini-sized treat size that is specially made for smaller dogs, puppies, or dogs watching their weight.
How many calories are in each Yitto Paws treat?
There are only 14.4 calories in our regular Granola Bites treats and 3.6 calories in our Minis.
Are Granola Bites your only type of treats?
Right now, Granola Bites are the only type of treat we sell. We plan to introduce new types of treats in 2021, so stay tuned!
Do Yitto Paws Granola Bites work in Furbos and other remote treat dispensing machines?
Our Granola Bites MINIS work in Furbos and fit through their dispensing chute. Here’s a link to our MINIS in our store: https://www.yittopaws.com/yitto-paws-granola-bites-minis-8-ounce-pouch/
While we haven’t tested our treats in Furbos or other remoted dispensing devices, from what we’ve been told, Yitto Paws Granola Bites MINIS work in Furbos and fit through their dispensing chute. Here’s a link to our MINIS in our store: https://www.yittopaws.com/yitto-paws-granola-bites-minis-8-ounce-pouch/
NOTE: Since most if not all of these treat dispensing machines rely on gravity to dispense treats, occasionally treats won’t fully drop into the dispensing chute. This happens with our treats and most other brands from what we’ve read. When that happens, usually gently giggling the dispenser and/or adding more treats will fix the issue.
I’d like to sell Yitto Paws at my business. Whom can I contact?
Woo-hoo! We’re doing a little happy dance here! Shoot us a note or call us — all our contact information is on our contact page.
Does Yitto Paws do any sponsorships or donations?
Yes, we do! We’re proud of getting involved locally to help Put Dogs First! That said, right now we’re a very small company and have limited resources. But in case you were wondering, we do have big plans on the giving front. We call it 20 by 30. What does it mean? We’ve set the crazy but amazing goal of giving 20% of our profits to help dogs in need (and their families) by 2030.
Can I purchase Yitto Paws in bulk?
We’re sorry, but at this time we don’t do any bulk sales.
What’s the shelf life of Yitto Paws Granola Bites?
Yitto Paws’ shelf life is about two years. How do we do that? It’s all about minimizing the moisture content in our treats. So, be smart when you store open treats. Always seal the bag, and if you live in a humid, moist environment, you may want to keep the treats someplace where they’ll stay dry.
If you have any questions about this, don’t hesitate to contact us!
The pouch the treats came in is all wrinkled. Is it okay?
Since we launched, we’ve been trying different kinds of pouch materials to see which provides the best protection for our treats as well as hopefully finding one that is compostable. One of the pouch materials we tried has tended to wrinkle more than others (this is especially true if it was in a tightly packed 3-Pack). So rest assured, despite the wrinkled pouch, your treats are safe!
Do you offer tours?
At this point we don’t offer any tours. Hopefully we will be able to one of these days because we want everyone to see how the best yitto treats on earth are made!
Do Yitto Paws need to be refrigerated?
Yitto Paws don’t need to be refrigerated. If you live in particularly humid or wet environment, storing in the refrigerator may help them stay fresh longer. That said, your dogs are going to love Yitto Paws so much that you’ll be going through enough bags that you won’t have to worry about that.
When was Yitto Paws founded?
Our founder’s “ah ha” moment to launch Yitto Paws came in April 2017, but we didn’t sell our first treats until 2019.
Are Yitto Paws available internationally?
Since we’re just starting out, we’re focusing on growing sales in the United States at first. If you want to ship internationally, please check at our online store for the cost.

That question is super easy to answer. Zero Zilch Nada! We’re committed to putting dogs first with the best yitto treats on earth. That will always mean simple, organic, human grade ingredients combined and prepared in a fashion that is delicious and nutritious. for your dog, while never requiring and smidge of any fake or questionable.
