Finder Retail Awards 2023: Best pet brands

We asked more than 30,000 Australians to rate their favourite brands and retailers – here's who came out on top in the pet category.

The Finder Retail Awards recognises Australia's favourite brands across more than 100 retail categories. We surveyed tens of thousands of real Australians to understand how they feel about their recent product purchases and used that information to reward the most popular brands.

These are the best brands in the pet category for 2023.

How we chose the winners

The Finder Retail Awards recognises brand sentiment from customer feedback on different retail product categories. Finder worked with data and insights company Dynata to conduct thousands of customer interviews regarding their product purchasing history and satisfaction with their purchased products.

Disclaimer: Please refer to our methodology for more information about how we scored and judged Finder Retail Awards candidates. While we endeavour to assess the majority of product providers in the market, this is not always possible and it may be that not every brand in the market was included for judging.
