Pet Product Manufacturers in China

Sourcing the Safest, Highest-Quality, In-Demand Pet Supplies

As long as people have pets, there will be a market for pet supplies. However, customers' tastes have refined, so businesses serious about breaking into the pet supply market need to source products that are safe and match the demand customers have for modern products that incorporate the best technology. The best way to make sure your products meet the high standards of today's market is to partner with an experienced sourcing specialist, like Kanary.

Our sourcing experts have a substantial list of proven, trusted pet supply factories that are ready to provide the pet products your brand needs to grow, whether those are traditional pet products or newer, more modern products. We also know how to find and vet new factories, and Kanary guarantees your satisfaction with any China factory we connect you with.

Pet Product Sourcing: Step-by-Step


Kanary Determines the Specific Pet Products You Need

Before we begin our search, Kanary determines the specific kind of pet products you need, as well as adjacent products that may be a good fit. Suppliers in China often specialize in niche product categories, so a factory that makes great feeding bowls may not make great pet carriers. We always take the time to make sure we know exactly what you need.


Pet Product Manufacturer Search

Next, Kanary begins the supplier search for your specific pet product. Our search involves considering 30-50 potential suppliers, including suppliers that we have worked with before and have proven to be excellent partners. Our team narrows down the field of candidates based on lead times, pricing, quality, and overall fit for your specific product.



When we have 3-5 highly-qualified candidates, Kanary begins the sampling phase. This is crucially important for pet products, as it not only gives an opportunity to refine products before mass production begins, but it also shows us that the suppliers are capable of creating products that are safe for pets. Kanary handles scheduling and shipment of all samples.


Supplier Vetting and Final Selection

Kanary also inspects potential factories, which shows us the quality control standards that are currently being followed and the safety levels of products made during mass production. Kanary has a physical presence in China, and our team personally inspects factories. When we find a supplier that meets our standards and your needs, mass production begins.


Mass Production and Quality Control

After mass production begins, Kanary continues to monitor quality control. Our team is in place to notice production problems early and resolve those problems with factory managers or owners. If any certifications are necessary for certain products in your target market, Kanary makes sure that your supplier is appropriately vetted and has the needed requirements.



When production is complete, Kanary can help with a variety of different shipping options, including:

  • Organizing bulk sea freight shipments
  • Creating consolidated shipping logistics for larger orders, or for businesses who plan to create long-term partnerships with factories
  • Delivering inventory to China fulfillment centers for direct shipment to consumers. 

If choosing consolidated shipping or standard sea freight shipping, Kanary assists with gathering customs documentation, and helping to navigate customs delays as they arise.

Words from our clients

I’ve been in this industry for a long time and I was surprised that Kanary was able to help find us machines for a 1/3 of the cost compared with US and European manufacturers. What I really enjoy with Kanary is that they constantly keep me in the loop and get back to me almost instantaneously. What’s also great is that they kept me in the loop with the shipping, customs clearance, delivery, and also arrange travels for engineers from the factory to install our equipment.  The quality has been outstanding and I’m in the process of building out a new facility with them.

I’ve been in the construction industry for over 30 years. We’ve always bought from US distributors. I reached out to Kanary out of curiosity to see if we could find similar construction materials of high quality. I did not think they were going to make much progress and so I was shocked when they found the exact manufacturer that my distributors have been buying from within 2 weeks. They were able to make contact and have the factory send me samples within a week.  By connecting directly with the factory, we’re looking at savings of over 30%.

We’ve done quite a few different packaging projects with Kanary in the past (Child-resistant packaging, glass jars, plastic bags, shipper boxes, etc.). We sent AI files to Kanary, who then worked directly with the factory's design team to make prototypes of the packaging. Our in-house designer is very particular about our designs and Kanary was really flexible and worked with us when our designers wanted to make changes in the packaging development process. They were able to manufacture different prototypes at different price points, which gave us options when making our final decision.

Pet Supplies FAQs

Are pet supplies from China safe?

Yes, as long as you source your pet supplies for a trusted, reputable factory. It's a common misconception that all China manufacturing is low-quality or unsafe. It's possible to get bad products, but that's because businesses partner with a bad factory (or they partner with a good factory that is bad at making what the business needs). 

Kanary has made it a business to connect serious businesses with high-quality suppliers in China, and our customers are amazed at the quality results. If you're new to finding factories in China, or you've been unsuccessful in the past, Kanary would love to partner with you and make working with China factories a success.

Should I use a sourcing specialist or Alibaba for sourcing pet supplies from China?

Alibaba is the world's largest B2B platform, allowing businesses to connect with factories in China to source products. It's possible to find pet supply factories on Alibaba (in fact, Kanary often uses Alibaba to search for new suppliers). However, the difficulty is wading through the vast number of choices to find a supplier you can trust. 

For pet supplies, it can be a challenge for inexperienced businesses to use Alibaba to find a supplier that's a good fit. If you're prepared to make a substantial investment in a bulk order, we recommend partnering with a sourcing specialist, like Kanary

Can Kanary help source premium grooming products from China?

Yes! We know how to find suppliers who have the engineering capacity (as well as the communication skills), to source premium grooming products for your brand.

Is selling pet supplies profitable?

Selling pet supplies is traditionally a profitable niche, but whether or not you're successful is based on all kinds of different factors. You need to consider your specific market, the need for your specific product, and how you establish and build your brand. 

You also need to consider the cost of your products, which includes production and shipping costs. Many businesses choose to partner with Kanary because we can help find excellent suppliers that can make products worth building a brand around at a price that allows for appropriate scaling and growth.

Can China-sourced pet supplies compare in quality to American-made pet supplies?

Yes! As we've mentioned, it's a myth that American-made products are inherently superior to China-made products. The problem is that the manufacturing industry in China is so large and so developed, there are a lot of bad choices. The good news is that there are a lot of good choices, too. 

The good suppliers can be hard to find, and if that describes your situation, we encourage you to reach out to us! Kanary specializes in sourcing any product from China (including pet supplies), and we can make sure you get connected with a supplier you love without the hassle of searching on your own.

Is there a way I can find my own manufacturers for pet products in China?

You don't have to use a sourcing specialist like Kanary to find a pet supply product supplier. There's a few methods you can use to track down a factory, though including:

  • Using Alibaba
  • Using Google search for suppliers that may have their own websites
  • Trade shows
  • Referrals from other companies in similar niches

You need to take your time when you buy direct from China to avoid costly mistakes, and if you aren't sure that you have the time and resources required to find a factory successfully, consider partnering with Kanary to help you with your sourcing needs.

Can Kanary help me find products to start a pet supply dropshipping store?

While Kanary can help source products for any store, our target audience are established businesses. If you're a new business testing a new product, it may not be worth it to go through the sourcing process and bulk order products. You may want to consider testing products through AliExpress or another dropshipping platform first.
