Over the last two decades, Canadian pet food manufacturers have been developing high quality, human grade, and innovative pet foods to supply both Canada and the world. We have carefully considered them all, looking at every aspect of the manufacturer and their recipe. Here are just a few of the things we consider:

  • Quality and source of ingredients, including how fresh the ingredients are, where they’re sourced from, whether they include antibiotics or hormones, if they’re GMO free and organic, and more.
  • Manufacturing practices and transparency. We believe that manufacturers of the foods we feed our beloved pets should be accountable for every step of the manufacturing process.
  • Innovation and sustainability. As we move towards a more eco-friendly world, the foods our pets eat should come from earth-friendly, sustainable sources, too.

Here are the top 20 best Canadian made dog foods for 2020:

#1: Smack

Smack is a Canadian company making absolutely outstanding dehydrated superfoods for pets. And for many reasons, Smack is our top-ranked dog food for 2020. Since 2008, Smack Pet Foods have been proudly producing high quality pet products out of their Winnipeg, Manitoba facility. The Smack team are committed to providing pets with the healthiest, and most convenient foods in today’s pet food marketplace. 

Their foods are backed by food engineering, biochemistry, holistic medicine, and a deep love of animals. These are the tools that allow Smack to develop an innovative, industry-leading approach to pet food manufacturing. Best of all, their foods are dehydrated in their raw form, ensuring they retain all of their natural nutrient content.

That’s why Smack Pet Foods has taken the number one spot in our 2020 Top 10 Canadian Dog Food Rankings. This is one of the highest quality pet foods in the world. Smack’s recipes are made mostly from certified organic ingredients, including the best quality cuts of human-grade meat (like whole, bone-in chicken), and a carefully chosen range of organic produce. 

Because of their high meat content, Smack is highly palatable; perfect for fussy eaters. There are five unique Smack dog formulas to choose from: Prairie Harvest Pork, Caribbean-Salmon Fusion, Rockin’ Rockfish, Chunky Chicken, and Very Berry Chicken. Smack’s recipes are loaded with wholesome, nutritiously-dense superfoods, and don’t require any synthetic supplementation.

#2: Carna4

Carna4 was our top recommendation for 2019, and for good reason; Carna4 is one of the few foods on this list containing absolutely no synthetics of any kind. Carna4 is a unique brand, and this year ranks a close second in our 2020 Top 10 Canadian Dog Food Rankings.

Carna4 began in 2010 when a team of nutritionists, food scientists and engineers set out to create a completely synthetic-free dog food. They achieved this goal by harnessing the nutritional power of superfoods. While almost every kibble on the market requires manufactured vitamin premixes, Carna4 does not. Using organic sprouted seeds – one of the most nutrient-dense foods on Earth – combined with 100% fresh, table-grade meats, and whole produce, Carna4 is loaded with nutrition and flavour. Among other things, organic sprouted seeds are an outstanding source of antioxidants, enzymes, and probiotics. All Carna4 formulas are free from hormones, antibiotics and GMO’s.

Carna4 offers three dog food recipes: chicken, duck, and fish. These formulas are perfectly suitable for dogs of all sizes, shapes, and life stages. They set rigorous testing standards for their products, and every batch is tested for safety by a third-party research and laboratory testing firm. This firm specializes in testing foods and health products for major consumer goods companies in Canada. Carna4 is also a big supporter of sustainable ingredient sourcing and humane farming practices.

Best of all, this is a more affordable option than most freeze-dried or frozen raw brands.

Zeal comes with a high meat inclusion, making it another excellent option for non-food-motivated dogs. Their formulas are made with 96% pure meat and organs, making it one of the tastiest products on the market today. Zeal offers two lines of dog food: gently air-dried, and gently air-dried with freeze-dried. There are 3 formulas in each line.
