Due to unfavourable climatic conditions, owning a dog was not feasible in Saudi Arabia. However, the trend of dog ownership has gained momentum over the years, supported by rising standards of living and increasing disposable incomes. Moreover, the owners treat their dogs like a member of the family and are willing to provide the best amenities for them. These factors have created a huge demand for dog food in Saudi Arabia.

The demand for premium dog food products with better nutrient content and palatability is increasing among the pet owners, thereby stimulating the market growth in the region. Further, in line with the changing needs of the consumers, the manufacturers are introducing product variants with innovative flavours.

Apart from this, the dog owners are shifting towards online shopping as it negates geographical limitations and provides convenience. As a result of this, online retailing is rapidly emerging as one of the most preferred distribution channels in Saudi Arabia.

In addition, various dog food companies have started focusing on attractive packaging as it plays an important role in creating a positive brand image and expanding the consumer-base.

Based on product type, the market has been segmented as dry food, wet and canned food, and snacks and treats. Currently, dry food dominates the market, holding the largest share.
