Tiki Dog™ Petites Adds New Products to its Family of Gourmet Whole Foods for Small Dogs

May 8, 2019

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 8, 2019--Tiki Dog™ Petites continues to add new and innovative products to their line of gourmet whole foods for small dogs. This spring, Tiki Dog™ Petites Pâté, Tiki Dog™ Petites Stix and Tiki Dog™ Petites Taste of the World will launch in the U.S. to continue to provide varied and wholesome nutrition for small dogs.

“As the small dog population continues to rise, our Tiki Dog Petites family of products has continued to grow and offer the best possible nutrition to address the needs of this population,” said Olivier Amice, CEO of Whitebridge Pet Brands, the maker of Tiki Dog. “Small dogs have smaller stomachs, live longer and tend to become picky eaters, making flavor and texture variety, as well as the food’s nutrient bioavailability important.”

Tiki Dog Petites products offer a variety of textures and flavors for complete and balanced meals, such as wet whole foods, dry baked kibble, smooth mousses and dry morsel toppers. The new Tiki Dog Petites Pâté line offers meat-first wet nutrition for small dogs in reasonably-priced five ounce cans. Flavors include classic lamb pâté, classic pork pâté, classic beef pâté, classic duck pâté and classic turkey pâté. These products provide small dogs with superfoods and ingredients such as turmeric and L-carnitine, without any grains or carrageenan. MSRP is $1.29.

The Tiki Dog Petites Stix are irresistible grain-free wet treats made with real duck or chicken in creamy gravy. These stix are made with no tapioca and infused with broth, instead of water. “According to the 2018 APPA Pet Owners Survey, the percentage of pet owners giving treats has increased, with more demand for grain-free treats,” says Amice. “We wanted to provide this option for small dogs to enjoy protein-rich wet treats with convenience.” MSRP is $4.99 for a pack of six single-serve stix.

In addition, the Tiki Dog Petites Taste of the World line gives small dogs a taste of the world with each meal. These mouth-watering recipes from around the globe offer a true indulgence, while providing complete, balanced nutrition in ready-to-serve meals made specifically for small dogs. Whole ingredients, such as chicken or beef are shredded and blended with healthy carbohydrates, creating a finished product that looks and smells like a homemade meal. Flavors include Mediterranean, Italian Carbonara, French Beef Burgundy, Spanish Paella with Chicken & Shrimp, Asian Chicken Stir Fry, as well as a variety pack with two of each flavor. MSRP is $1.69 for the three ounce cups.

“As with all of our innovation, we remain focused on quality nutrition, while keeping in mind the health needs, habits and preferences of small breed dogs,” says Amice. “Our goal is to help them live long active lives.”
