ABOUT US

Paw Paw is our dream business. We are lifetime friends and we are both mad about our pets - cats Minnie & Rosie, rescue dogs, Nelly & Sid and the real character, 13 year old wire-haired foxy, Molly.

As busy working mothers we love any time-saving service that eases the day-to-day juggle of family life, and as dedicated pet owners we want to know we are giving our dogs the best nutrition we can. After a lot of research and hard work we are confident Paw Paw boxes offer stress free, preservative free goodness, making life easier for you, and healthier for your precious pet.

Our three dogs are our thriving and happy in-house testers. Their shiny coats, good body weight and healthy teeth say it all.

We really hope our regular fortnightly deliveries, and surprise extras, improve your lives too. We would love to hear from you and your pooch about your Paw Paw experience.

Stay in touch,
Charlotte & Annika.

 

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE PEOPLE WE LIKE TO WORK WITH…

 

THE NZ NATURAL PET FOOD CO.

Provide us with Woof Chicken, Broccoli, Apple & Kale Bites 

WOOF is part of a great NZ start-up, recently launched by Amber and Jacqueline. They use only the highest quality ingredients, combining great nutrition and taste with fresh, raw food that is put through a gentle freeze drying process. This protects all the natural enzymes and nutrients, so none of the wholesome goodness is cooked out.  Raw, natural, and delicious! 

 

 

ZIWI, NATURAL NZ PET NUTRITION

Provide us with Ziwi Air-Dried Food & Ziwi Moist Dog-food

Ziwi are at the top of their game as a leading NZ pet-food producer. Their carefully crafted recipes mirror the whole-prey, meat-rich, diet that dogs require for a long, happy, healthy life. We offer their air-dried food and moist foods, all carefully crafted to reflect a whole-prey philosophy. It's tasty too - we know your dog will love it. 

WASH BAR

Provides us with Manuka Wash Bar, Paw Balm & Itch Soothe

Wash Bar has gone global, and we understand why. They use only the finest ingredients from nature and blend them in a way that has the most benefit to your pet. The natural mix of ingredients in the wash bar is ideal for dogs with sensitive or problem skin.  It’s nature's alternative to medicated shampoos, as well as being an easy to use general shampoo. The rest of the range is amazing too. We really like the Paw Balm and the Itch Soothe Spray. NZ innovation at its' best.


 

NUTRO

Provides us with a variety of Dry, Grain Free & Wet Foods

Nutro pet food energises your dog from the inside out. Their clean recipes are simple, purposeful, and trustworthy - made of real, recognisable ingredients. Feed clean. Nutro believe in natural, because natural is good, natural is nutritious, natural is pure. We stand by this quality product and their lovely NZ team.

 

   

SUNDAY PETS

Provides us with Grain Free Baked Food

 Sunday Pets grain free baked food is conceived on the philosophy that puppies are not born to eat the same type of diet as humans. Grain free, but rich in protein and low in carbohydrates, it’s 100% New Zealand grass fed lamb, vegetables, fruits and herbs, with no whey, corn or soy, no salt or sugar, no artificial colours or flavours, and no artificial preservatives. No odds & ends. Promise.

 

RADICAL DOG

Provides us with Super-Fruit Biscuits

Another fantastic Kiwi brand. Radical Dog Biscuits are packed full of South Island Montmorency tart cherries – the super fruit that delivers exceptional results. These natural biscuits are ideal as a supplement for your dog. They have been tested by Massey University’s Institute of Food Nutrition and Human Health and are approved to AAFCO International Animal Food Standards.

  

OUR VERY OWN PAW PAW BAKER

Provides us with Gluten-Free Paw Paw Crackers

 Helen, our amazing specialist baker, teaches cooking when she’s not baking Paw Paw Dog Crackers. Our super healthy recipe includes linseed, coconut, barley flakes, chia and more. No nasties come near these low-cal treats for training. Amazing for shiny dog coats too.
