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.

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.
