The company behind BEWI DOG®

Our traditional brand


BEWI DOG® has a long tradition in dog sports. It is produced by Bewital petfood in Germany. Many successful dog sport enthusiasts and breeders have been relying on BEWI DOG® since 1984. BEWI DOG® stands for reliable quality and excellent value for money. “BEWI” comes from the initials of Bernhard Wigger, who founded the family firm in 1963 and who has been working with pet food and animal feed ever since. The second generation has since taken over and the company is currently run by his son, Dr. Jürgen Wigger, and daughter, Ulrike Petershagen.

Every day, vets and nutritionists work on developing the best recipes. These form the basis for procuring high-quality ingredients, including poultry, fish, rice, fats, minerals and vitamins. The ingredients come from inspected companies, with preference given to local firms.

Following a further incoming control in our own laboratory, the ingredients are mixed according to the recipe and then steamed to retain their sensitive nutrients and natural flavours.

What kind of meat is used in BEWI DOG?

All the meat products we use come from animals that are also approved for human food production. Like wolves, domestic dogs derive particular benefit from animal protein. Every BEWI DOG® pack clearly displays the proportion of total protein that comes from animal sources.More information about our ingredients

How do we ensure the safety of our BEWI DOG® dog food?

rigorous quality control steps


BEWI DOG® dog food passes through several rigorous quality control steps before it leaves our factory. In addition to the legal requirements, we have developed our own standards to ensure that all our raw materials – from procurement to processing and packaging – are of the highest quality.

To make sure we don’t overlook anything in this complex process, we also have our products checked by TÜV Rheinland.

*FEDIAF = European pet food industry federation

BEWI DOG® is the first dog food to be subjected to this stringent quality control check by the independent testing organisation. TÜV Rheinland has for decades enjoyed a global reputation for its technical testing methods. It is also an impartial testing body for food, with a large number of independent laboratories where scientists and nutritionists ensure the safety of tomorrow’s products. BEWI DOG® dog food undergoes three tests at TÜV Rheinland.

BEWI DOG dog food undergoes three tests at TÜV Rheinland

  • 1Nutritional test
    TÜV Rheinland carries out nutritional analyses in independent laboratories. The analysis results are then compared with the relevant dietary guidelines (FEDIAF, 2013*). The comparison criteria are taken from the dietary recommendations for puppies, young dogs and adult dogs.
  • 2Declaration check
    Independent experts from TÜV Rheinland check the product declarations. The nutritional information printed on the packaging is compared with analysis results from independent laboratories. This ensures that our dog food really does do what it says on the tin (or pack). TÜV also checks that the products comply with the legal regulations on feed labelling (EU Regulation 767-2009).
  • 3Harmful substances check
    Tests are carried out in independent laboratories to search for e.g. dioxins, pesticide residues, aflatoxins and heavy metals. The measurement techniques are so sensitive that they would be able to find a corn of rye in 50 tonnes of wheat.
  • A QR code next to the TÜV Rheinland seal provides a way for consumers to find out more details online. BEWI DOG® has three different QR codes linked to the various nutritional tests for puppies/reproduction, young dogs and adult dogs. Together with TÜV, BEWI DOG® is setting a new benchmark for product safety that gives today’s dog owners the assurance they are looking for.
