Air-Dried For Superior Nutrition
At the heart of what we do is our hands-on, artisanal approach to air-drying our recipes. A modern and refined twist on the centuries-old technique of naturally preserving meats, our slow, gentle twin-stage air-drying process eliminates pathogenic bacteria, such salmonella and listeria, while protecting nutrients in our ingredients. And because there is no need for preservatives, sugars or glycerine, our food is safe, clean to handle, and as nutritious and digestible as a completely raw diet.

100% sourced from ethical farms, we put the basis New Zealand in our premium pet foods. From green, free-range farms to the pristine blue waters of New Zealand's coastlines, all of our grass-fed meat and fresh seafood are sourced from sustainably managed, human grade, local farms that exceed strict New Zealand standards.
No Antibiotics or Growth Promotants
We believe nature in its simplest form provides an abundance of nutrition. That's why our Ziwi recipes are free of antibiotics, growth promotants or added hormones.
No Grains, Sugars or Glycerins
A true carnivore, your dog, isn't built to process carbohydrates, so we never use grain, corn, soy, potatoes, wheat or rice. Instead our recipes have everything you need for your dog to thrive.

Initially when my Dog was a puppy and into a few years of age, we stuck with Purina Puppy Chow and then tried several Pet Store brands some not so good and what's advertised on TV, big brand names and some obscure brands sold only online, all of which contained grains, carbs and veggies among a mix of meat proteins and God knows what else.
A number of years ago after my Dog had some health issues for bladder infections, the Vet prescribed a food just for that reason, very expensive and after further education I saw the #1 ingredient was Corn, after feeding my Dog this for a month or so, I stopped. I took it upon myself to feed higher quality pet foods and the issue went away and never returned. I also got a new Vet. Dogs are carnivores based on their non-domesticated ancestors, sure they can eat some of it, but having it as their main diet or a high %, is not what nature intended for them.
Over the years since, I tried several higher quality brands in an effort to curb some paw licking and chewing that a became frequent, Vet said there was a yeast infection and mentioned it could be food. I went to Grain Free, I tried many different brands, Wellness, Taste of the Wild, Nutrisca, Orijen, Acana and Fromm to name a few. I actually lost count of all the foods I tried, I removed Chicken from the diet thinking there was a Chicken Allergy, helped a little but paw licking and nibbling continued. Also my Dog had a yeast issues as I could still smell it very faintly. There were times when the food totally was a loss of interest and would not be finished at dinner time. I then switched to a grain free all fish diet, for a while, tried a couple other brands, Zignature being the last, but I had to stop due to the % Sodium.
I then received word from the Vet that my Dog has early stages of congestive heart failure, which requires daily meds now to manage. I also, on my own, began to research and also blamed myself for the diet I was feeding. I read that diets low in Taurine and also diets that are Lamb & Rice based can cause deficiencies in Taurine. Along with this, it's imperative that dog's with CHF be given a low sodium diet, most dog foods on the market are loaded with crap on top of Salt, like why is it needed? Some sodium perhaps, but high % of it or just plain old "Salt" listed in the ingredients, is too much.
So after blaming myself for the condition my Dog had, I went on a search to find a low sodium food that met my requirements, I tried a few, but most were still too high in Sodium % or did not even list it, after reaching out to them via e-mail I found out most were too high. I then found Ziwi Peak, and their website is very clear, shows the sodium and also added Taurine benefit which my Dog needs, I ordered a small bag and fed it mixed in for a week, noticed how my Dog devoured it and left the old kibble for last or didn't even want to finish it. This led to another bag and another, eventually I had switched over to Ziwi Peak 100%.
It's been over a month now, my Dog looks forward to feeding time, devours the food and leaves nothing behind. Stool volume is way down, no more fillers or things that are only detrimental, just like nature intended. Also noticed a huge improvement in the breath department, along with no issues with poop time or loose stools.
Skin is improving, nibbling and paw chewing is declining. All the noted benefits of the food is coming into fruition and I hope it continues.
My Dog loves Ziwi Peak and also the Ziwi Peak treats. The cost is high, but when you weigh out the positives and vet visits you may avoid due to feeding it along with having a happy healthy Dog, it's a small price to pay. Also as noted by Ziwi Peak, the portion sizes are smaller than what's typical of foods containing loads of fillers and carbs, and believe it or not the recommended daily feeding size quite adequately satisfies my Dog's hunger and also the included measuring cup in each bag is a nice touch.
I also have to commend Ziwi Peak's Customer Service, I received one bag that had a different smell than what I was use to, was concerned though there was nothing probably wrong with it, appears a tear or wasn't properly sealed. After contacting Ziwi Peak via e-mail, I got a response in a less than 1 hour from the Co-Founder of the company, who offered to send a replacement bag, when it arrived not only did they replace the bag, but they also included a free bag of Ziwi Peak Venison Treats which made my Dog very happy.
So I would rate their Customer Service #1, which matches the quality of the food as well.
This stuff costs money. Big money. It's by far the most expensive dog food I've purchased. We got a small free sample of the treats and she absolutely loved them. Being that her liking a new food/treat is as rare as an honest politician, I looked into the brand immediately. And was SHOCKED! The cost per pound is crazy.
However, if the choice is that your dog will not eat (and I don't care what people say, I can leave food she doesn't care for in her bowl and she simply WILL NOT EAT, even for days!) or you spend money, well, you spend money. It's awesome that the food she likes in this case is also food that is good for her. S&C is great food, too, but it states right on the bag that it's bones and organs and meat. This is meat. I like that.
The other thing is that, while expensive, you don't need to feed cupful after cupful. Two scoops using the included scoop is all my 20lb puli needs. Amazing. A bag a month is what we're doing now. So the cost isn't that bad. And the food is great.
This actually IS raw food, but it's been air dried. It's shaped like little wafers and is also useful as a training treat. I have used them in treat puzzles for my dogs also. My dogs have never, ever turned their noses up at any variety of ZiwiPeak. It is some of the best dog food you can give your dog. If you're on the fence, you should give it a try.
This food is expensive, there's no doubt about it. But it is very high quality. It gets 5 stars on Dogfood Advisor dot com. It's grain free and has no rosemary added. I've found some of the best prices for this food on Amazon as well. Would I feed this to my dogs if I had big dogs? Unfortunately, probably not. But I have three little dogs with a gross weight of about 50 pounds, so ZiwiPeak is doable for us.
I always suggest checking Dogfood Advisor to people considering trying a new food or looking for the best food for their dog. I feel good about feeding my dogs ZiwiPeak.
