Frequently asked questions

All FAQs

What makes your small breed recipes different?

We make small tweaks in ingredients and kibble shape/design in our small breed specific recipes to make them more suited to small dogs.

While the Black Hawk Small Breed recipes can be fed to any dog, the higher energy level of this diet, with calories delivered by chicken fat, digest and meal, mean it’s most suited to the small breed dog.

The feeding guide for the Small Breed product is bespoke to the needs of small breed dogs, once again, reflecting that they need different calories per kilogram of adult weight than larger breed dogs. Feeding guides have now been split to include ‘less active’ and ‘active’ dogs.

Where is Black Hawk dog food made?

Black Hawk kibble is made at our new state of the art facility in Parkes, New South Wales, using fresh local ingredients, ensuring nutritional excellence and superior quality.

Our kibble is gently roasted at a lower and more even temperature, which creates higher palatability. Put simply, our kibble is even tastier.

We undertake regular audits not only of our ingredient suppliers, but of the factories which make our foods, to ensure compliance to our product specifications.

These sites adhere to good manufacturing practices, dictated by organisations such as the PFIAA (Pet Food Industry Association of Australia), and the NZPFMA (New Zealand Pet Food Manufacturer’s Association). These organisations uphold and advocate for the highest standards of pet food production and PFIAA sets an Australian Standard (AS5812), acting as the ‘public face’ of the pet food industry.

At what age do I change my puppies over from Puppy to Adult food?

Each breed is different depending on its size and weight. We recommend that small to medium sized breeds can transition from around 12 months of age and large to giant breeds from 18 months to 2 years.
