We got our puppy about a year and a half ago, and have been to Oliver‘s Collar weekly ever since! They greet us like we’re family there, and Luna gets so excited whenever we go. They have a variety of toys, food, and homemade treats. Luna loves all of the different chews that they have, so I always make sure to stock up. (They also have a wide selection of adorable clothes for dogs, we got her a raincoat and it is so dang cute!) Oliver’s Collar is a must-stop if you’re in the SODU area!

After a terrible experience at Phydeaux in Chapel Hill, we decided to drive over to Oliver’s collar instead of giving our business to a place who makes people uncomfortable. I couldn’t have been happier that we chose Oliver’s!! The staff was friendly, the products were fabulous and they even gave my pups cookies! My birthday girl doggie also got a free birthday cookie!! We will definitely be back!

Such a cool place! They have all kinds of unique items that you can't get in the big pet stores. The best perk is the HOMEMADE pet treats and they even do cupcakes and birthday cakes for your furry friend. I will most certainly be returning!

The owner is a wealth of information about dog nutrition, able to make recommendations based on your dog's specific needs. She's very willing to talk about animals and her inspiration for opening the boutique. The products they create are natural, nutritious, and one-of-a-kind. She also carries food and merchandise from other responsible pet organizations (pictured). I'll definitely be returning to the store as I need.

The cake was positively adorable and our pup absolutely loved it. Her eyes say it all 😍 and she also adored her birthday cookie, none of which upset her sensitive stomach! Hooray!

We had such a wonderful experience here! We took our pup Willow for her birthday and they treated her like royalty! They have amazing homemade treats, pupcakes, ice cream sandwiches, really anything you can imagine! We will definitely be back, thanks for helping make Willow’s day so special!

My wife and I have been going to Oliver's Collar since fall 2019 when Kaya came to live with us. For her "Gotcha Day" this year, we got her a cupcake and a toy from Oliver's and she loved them both. She was a bit skeptical of the cupcake at first but then she tucked in and ate every last bit. Everyone at Oliver's has been great help anytime we've needed recommendations. I highly recommend this local business.

I ordered a 4inch cake and a cupcake for my dog. Make up for his birthday and also for Halloween. My dog ate almost all the cake at once. The only reason he didn't finish them all is I tried a small part of the cake myself. First, the cake was so cute just as my instruction and I was totally satisfied with how it looked. Second, my dog liked it and I also tried the cake. It was fresh, soft and delicious. Third, eating the whole cake didn't upset my German Shepherd dog's stomach. I was a little bit worried at first since this breed has such a sensitive stomach.

We've been through six months of cancer hell with our Standard Poodle Dusky, so when she turned 10 this week, we wanted to do something special. Oliver's Collar were wonderful and helpful people who made the perfect cake to celebrate Dusky's strength and perseverance. God willing, we will buy another cake for her next Birthday. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

The perfect pet store. Has everything you can imagine here from toys to food to fresh baked goods for your furry children. Purchased a birthday cake for my friends dog here and it was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! Not to mention he LOVED IT! The staff was so nice, even offered me a free bag of homemade treats just for coming in for the first time. Will definitely be back!

Everyone is so nice and helpful. The place is cozy and I always find what I need for my fur babies. And they also LOVE the homemade puppy cookies! Highly recommend!

I'm grateful Oliver's Collar is so close and so welcoming. Every time I come in I walk out with an bag of goodies because their treat selection can't be beat! The employees are some of the friendliest I've ever met and go well out of their way to make sure your dog feels seen and loved. I went in one day with a new foster for a bath (highly recommend over bathing at home!!) and an employee asked if my dog could have treats and then opened multiple bags to find a tasty one because he was nervous and picky. Another time I brought in my reactive dog, wearing his "do not pet" and "anxious" tags, and I was given and lot of space to calmly walk around the store and never felt judged for bringing him in. The employee gave me kind smile and a nod as he put a giant handful of treats in my checkout bag instead of handing them directly to my dog. We've been working with my reactive dog for almost two years - that simple act of acknowledging that not all dogs want to be petted but they still want to be able to get out and interact with the world and probably still want tasty treats meant so incredibly much to me and I'll be a customer of Oliver's Collar for life because of it! Also - do your pup a favor and get a pupcake! It's worth the $3 to see the smile on your dog's face after gulping it down!

Oliver's Collar has great customer service. I never feel pushed, but I feel welcome to ask any and all questions I have about dogs or their products. They gave me free samples of dog food when my dog couldn't find a good match and talked me through the different options. Now that we have to stay at home, they described different deer antlers to me so that we could pick the one my dog would like best! While their selection isn't as big as a chain pet store (for example, mostly clothes for smaller dogs), they make up for it with their quality service and local touch. Thank you for being so helpful to us and our puppy!

This is BY FAR the best dog (and cat!) store in the Triangle. I’ve been getting birthday cakes for my dogs there for years. The cakes are so perfectly decorated to my random specifications (this year it was Tony Soprano and Italian themed and they made a beautiful spaghetti and meatballs cake with edible meatballs!) they make me cry tears of joy. Everyone I’ve ever interacted with there has been a delight. They have snacks and food and toys - do yourself and your best friend a favor and go visit!

My dog, Milo, turned three on 2/1, so my review is a little delayed - sorry about that! But WOW, amazing experience. This is the first time I’ve gotten him a dog cake for his birthday, and I will be going back to Oliver’s Collar for any pup birthday from here on it. The cake was decorated beautifully, and they even threw in a birthday cookie! I mean, the pictures speak for themselves. One thing I was worried about was whether or not the cake would upset his stomach, as he’s on a sensitive skin and stomach diet. But he didn’t get sick AT ALL. And he absolutely loved it! Super sweet staff, the store is incredible. Definitely worth a visit, and I can’t wait to order from them again.

Absolutely love Oliver's Collar! We're on our second year of picking up a birthday cake for our pup, Hudson, and we love that this is becoming tradition for us :) It's so worth the drive from Raleigh! The employees are incredibly nice, the store is stocked with everything your furry companion could want or need, and their attn to detail is amazing! Thanks so much!

We got a cake today for Rosie's 4th birthday and it was amazing! Service was great. We had kind of specific things we wanted on it and it came out perfect. All 3 of our dogs loved it. Best fur-baby birthday ever! We will be back to order Pickles' and Oreo's cakes soon.

This is my go to shop for all my dog treats including bully sticks to pigs ears to donuts, and cupcakes for my pups! Just celebrated my two dogs birthdays and they each received a cupcake which they devoured the deliciousness!

A lot of items besides baked goods. Well-behaved dogs allowed but I'd say harder for the human to browse when dog is trying to take in all the exciting smells.

They make a healthy quantity of items themselves, and staff was very helpful (would be nice if they could carry some additional "crinkle"-type toys... not all dogs are "squeak" fans).

Oliver's Collar is my FAVORITE pet store and a go to for all of my supplies. It is also the place I take all of my foster pups for socialization and training practice. I meet my potential adopters there as the team creates such a safe, responsible and pleasent environment.

They take the time to listen to your needs as a customer. If they don't carry it, they will get it for you. Plus their store dogs are awesome when they are around.

I wish I could give this place more than 5 stars!!! I had placed an online order for my pups 1-year birthday. Due to a miscommunication, they were not aware of the order and hence, it was not ready during the scheduled pick-up time. But all the three associates were so considerate, and promised to get the cake ready for me within 15 minutes. I didn’t mind the wait at all as I had a lovely mocha at the nearby coffee shop. As soon as I finished my last sip, one of the associates came to the coffee shop to let me know the cake was ready. The cake was so beautiful, and fresh (and delicious!!!), plus they gave out free treats for my pup as a compensation. Just the way the team at Oliver’s Collar handled the situation and with all smiles on a Saturday morning, I’m definitely coming back here again. Big supporter of locally owned businesses!

Great stuff for pet owners and fans. We get the granddog and cat Christmas treats here. I think it's pricey, but excellent quality. Pet bakery on site. Great, helpful staff/owners.

We love Oliver’s Collar! The staff is always super friendly and it’s a great experience whenever we drop by. Our dog loves the loose animal treats (cow’s ears are his favorite) and the Fromm brand food they carry. We recommend Oliver’s Collar to all our friends in the area with pets!

Everything you could want in a pet store. A small up charge for similar products at a chain store, but well worth it for the experience and joy of supporting a local business. They have a huge selection, and more options than other pet stores. I loved that there were so many brain teasers for dogs to choose from, and the baked goods are so fun. My pup tore straight into the bag when I got home, and she loved all of the cookies I got her. The attendant at the register was so helpful and kind. I will definitely be back. God help my poor wallet. 😂

We've been loyal customers of Oliver's Collar for about 5 years. I have never had a bad experience in any regard. My dogs love trips to the store and are always greeted by the most kind and courteous staff. We recently began using their DIY grooming room. It is easily the best place in Durham to go if you want to groom your dog in a quiet, private, very clean, and very professional setting. For just 22.00 everything is included - including aprons, clean white towels, and treats for your pup. You can also bring your own products and brushes, which is what we do. There is a sink and hand soap for you to use after you finish up grooming. It's in the back of the store but still feels open and spacious - it has always smelled so clean and lovely when we've arrived. Today, we took our 6 month old (63 lb) NewfiePoo who has thick and fluffy Doodle hair after taking our nearly 9 year old Golden-Mix last weekend. I am impressed with the high quality dryer they provide - it really has power and dries relatively quickly and it works very well on both coat types. The process is always so quick and simple, and I never feel rushed or pressured - my dogs can relax too. I can't recommend or compliment this business enough. They help make pet ownership a joyful experience. ♡

Oliver's Collar has been a neighborhood favorite of mine for several years. I found them years ago before they moved to their current location and make it a point when I am in the area to pick up dog food, treats and a baked good or two for my pups. The staff greets you when you arrive and the store is spacious and well organized. Parking is plenty and the store always smells fresh. So why did I only give it 4 stars? On at least 4 occasions over the last year I have found myself being charged a price that is higher than what is marked on the item. I get that sometimes errors happen at any store where the price in the system is different or has yet to be updated. When it happens once or twice I can overlook it but when it happens more than that it is concerning to me and make me wonder why. As a person who watches their money BUT also likes to buy local it is simply annoying. I will say that when I have noticed it and re-entered the store or brought it to the sales associate's attention, they are apologetic and do what they can to reconcile it/make it right, but at other times, I am with my dogs or already at home and the idea of unloading the pups, grabbing the items and the receipt all for a dollar or two or less seems unreasonable and unnecessarily tiring. I will probably continue to shop there because I believe in their mission, but I will watch my receipt closely.

When it came time to do my gender reveal, I knew I wanted my dogs involved and Oliver's Collar was my first thought! Super helpful staff and the cakes are beautiful! My dogs got to enjoy a lovely healthy cake while my husband and I anxiously waited for pink or blue 💙 so fun, thank you!

I was looking to get a cute photo worthy (and tasty) dog cake for my pups 3rd bday! They really delivered! I wrote that his favorite color was red, he loves tennis balls, sticks and he is the god of lightening! They even have dog breed candles for your cake!! I saw mini pup cupcakes as well and snagged a few of those! For it being my first time they went all out and gifted me a happy bday dog treat and a bag of treats! Very pleasant experience and we will be back! @iamzeus_thegod

Really think this is the nicest pet store I've ever been to. I spent way too much time marvelling at the sheer selection of pretty and unique merchandise and sharing snaps with my friends. It looks like everything is chosen with care. I randomly found this shop by googling and calling everywhere for my dog's food that was sold out everywhere (even on all major websites!) I called Oliver's Collar and they had a few bags which I snagged. The shopowner is so sweet and since it was my first time there offered some locally baked treats. So generous! Will be back 100% even though its a little bit of a drive. I ended up buying a floral bandana and a magnet that looked like my dog (lol) in addition to the food.
