About us

Oliver Barkley, previously known as Champion Pets, opened its doors in November 2015 after undergoing a full renovation. In May 2017 Oliver Barkley changed hands. New owner, Kirsten Olovich is a Lane Cove local and customer of the shop for many years. Kirsten has loved animals from a very young age, which makes working with Oliver Barkley customers and their pets a dream job. Kirsten can offer advice on products to best suit your pet’s needs.

Other friendly faces you’ll regularly see at Oliver Barkley are our part time staff and volunteers. Most would know Lesley as the owner of Champion Pets. Lesley currently works one day a week and is a world of knowledge. Saoirse is our most trusted volunteer and offers great customer service. Saoirse has a Cockatiel and Chickens and can help you with all your bird needs. Come in and meet Kirsten’s dogs, Ivy (Cavoodle) and AJ (Spoodle) who are lucky enough to go to work with her each day.

Oliver Barkley aims to service the Lower North Shore with an excellent range of dog, cat and small animal products. Our fully-stocked shelves offer high quality, beautifully designed products including a constantly evolving selection of both local, and international pet food and accessories for you and your furry friend to enjoy. Our treat bar boasts a variety of tasty, natural Australian treats for the top dog in your life including roo, chicken, beef, pork and fish products.

We strive to provide our wonderful customers a personable shopping experience and offer highly competitive prices. When you shop local, you’re not only supporting the local economy but also the employment of local people. 

As our way of giving back to the community, we make regular donations to animal charities and rescue shelters in the area.

Oliver Barkley is proud to support pet rescue organisations and registered, ethical breeders. If you’re thinking about purchasing a new pet, please come and talk to us.
