The 5 Best Pet Stores in Johannesburg Every Furparent Must Know

  • Brands of Pet Goods - I selected pet stores in Johannesburg that offer supplies from a wide range of reputable brands like RHÖNFRIED, MEDPET, Royal Canin, and more.
  • Variety of Goods - I made sure to include pet stores that offer a wide range of goods like accessories, food, nutrition supplements, and furniture. I also made sure to include pet stores that sell supplies for animals other than cats and dogs.
  • Affordability - I selected stores that offer promos and discounts, including free delivery promotions when they reach a certain order value. Pet supplies can be expensive, so I considered stores that offer competitive prices.
  • Delivery Services - I made sure to include pet stores that offer delivery services to Johannesburg and surrounding towns. I also considered their turnaround time, ease of ordering online, and quality of goods when they arrive at your doorstep.

I have two cats and a dog. You can call me a furmom, and I’ll take it as a huge compliment because caring for three animals in my small apartment takes a lot of time, effort, money, and energy. 

As a furmom, I only choose what’s best for my furkids, and that means sourcing supplies from reputable pet stores in Johannesburg. I’ve visited a lot of them, and I narrowed them down to the very best in terms of supply variety, affordability, and more. 

If you’re a new fur parent, take note of my top pet stores in Johannesburg below. You can thank me later!

Discounts and promotions can really attract any paying customer, and I think PetGeez does this really well. They offer promo deals daily for a short period of time on their website, which I think is a smart way to get people to add lots of stuff to their cart. 

I, for example, ordered a dog bed, chew treats, wet dog food, collagen supplements, and a calming collar, because, why not? I saved over R200 on everything I bought!

Although I went a little overboard with the pet store haul, the items I got were, at the very least, useful. My dog didn’t necessarily calm down as the collar promised, but I got what I paid for with everything else. 

Moreover, I love that PetGeez offers free delivery for orders of about R450. With the prices for pet goods and services in Johannesburg, the waived delivery fee really helped lessen the buyer’s remorse. 

I was just a bit iffy with the customer service, though. I got wet cat food instead of dog food (which I ordered and double-checked before paying), and when I complained to PetGeez, they didn’t get back to me until a week later. 

They still reversed the order and sent me the right one, free of charge, though.


  • Offers discounts and promos daily
  • Free delivery in Johannesburg for orders above R450


  • Sent some wrong orders
  • Poor customer service

Staff that goes out of their way

“What a pleasure, they went way out of their way to assist with a delivery, much appreciated, our dogs have their food and thank you to the team at PetGeez, definitely recommended.”

If you’re looking for a pet store that caters to all sorts of pets, including birds and fish, ePETstore is a pet store in Johannesburg to keep on your radar. The store sells a bunch of pet supplies and goods, ranging from feeds to bedding and litter. 

They also offer grooming, wellness, cleaning, and odour control products that I don’t see a lot of pet stores sell on hand. They’re not the cheapest I’ve found, but it’s good to know that they offer such items in case. 

While I usually prefer browsing in their physical store, I also like to order online because the interface is easy to navigate. 

Plus, they deliver my orders quickly. I have had problems with packages getting lost along the way, though, but they eventually reached me in good shape. I got an email from ePETstore, and they were apologetic about it. 


  • Fast delivery 
  • Wide variety of pet goods


  • Some lost packages during delivery
  • Pricey 

Nicely packed and prompt delivered pet goods

“I received my order the next day in good condition and nicely packed. Their service is always good. And the personalised card is a really cute little finishing touch. My boys are going to love their treats and toys.”

Jenny Fritz, Google Review

Efficient and accurate delivery tracking system

“Great service from purchasing to receiving my order. Orders are delivered quickly and you are being kept updated re delivery, and you can track your order with an updated tracking system, not like most other places that have a tracking system that is non existent. And the food is fresh, it’s not close to expiry dates. Very convenient to order online and I would highly recommend ePETstore to you, their service is 1 of the best so far.”

I think when it comes to brand variety, Turf Pet Hyper takes the cake. They’ve got all kinds of brands like AviForm, MEDPET, RHÖNFRIED, Pigeon Vitality, and more. 

They also specialise in supplying pigeon racing goods, such as accessories, food, and nutrition supplements. I never knew that racing pigeons were a thing, but if that’s the kidneys of pet supply you’re after, then Turf Pet Hyper may be your next go-to. 

I once ordered dog food and supplements from them and although they were quick with the checkout, I noticed that the items sent to me were close to the expiration date, especially the supplements. 

It was hard to send them back because I paid quite a lot for the items, but Turf Pet Hyper was nice enough to replace them for me. I had to pick the items up from the physical store, though! 


  • Offers racing pigeon supplies
  • Wide brand variety


  • Pricey
  • Some stale or old stocks 

Customers come first

“Always a pleasure. Even when they are very busy, their systems to assist customers fast and efficiently is amazing. The staff are all very well versed in products.”

Cindy Loubser, Google Review

Full stock always

“Staff is very helpful and you will be advised if you enquire about anything like if you are experiencing a problem with your pet, also their prices are reasonable and the forever have full stock.”

Absolute Pets is another pet store in Johannesburg that I recommend for people who prefer ordering online. Their website is super user-friendly and regularly updated. 

I always make sure to check out the Promotions section of the website to check for discounted pet supplies (since not all physical stores offer the same promos). I turn to Absolute Pets mainly for their treats and deworming medications, but I recently tried ordering their beds and blankets as well. 

I spent well over $500 for everything I ordered (which is quite a lot). Despite the high total bill, I qualified for free delivery, and their service coverage is quite extensive too. 

It took them almost a week, though, to deliver all my items. I would’ve liked it if they updated me about any delays, but at least all my items arrived in good shape. 


  • Offers auto-order function
  • Free delivery to Cape Town, Joburg, Pretoria, Durban, Port Elizabeth, and Pietermaritzburg


  • Delayed delivery
  • High minimum order requirement for free delivery

Excellent customer service

“I haven’t experienced customer service to this level before. I was looking for my dog’s food all over the south and called in this store to find if they have stock: the gentleman immediately told me he has it and will keep it for me. When I got there I was blown away by the service I received. Kind, polite and helpful. Even going to the extent of asking me what’s wrong with my dog for her to be allergic to food and suggesting other products to try. Keep it up”

Kameshni Naidoo, Google Review

Always willing to help

“The gentleman was very helpful and friendly and there all the way to assist me”

Don’t let the name Canine and Co. fool you into thinking they only favour dogs. This pet store in Johannesburg, in fact, sells pet supplies for birds, hamsters, fish, cats, and dogs! 

One thing I like about Canine and Co.’s physical store is how organised their displays are. It’s easy for me to find what I need through the shelves because each row is labelled according to its function. 

This omits my need to ask for help (which I sometimes get shy about). I have tried ordering online, but I noticed that the items I would usually get in their physical store are labelled as “Out of Stock” online. 

Luckily, items under “Flash Sale” are usually ready for delivery. I haven’t had many problems speaking to the staff members in the physical store, but I was pretty bummed out with how their online customer service took ages to get back to me on an inquiry. 

Overall, Canine and Co. is still a solid pet store to visit for all your pet supply needs. I recommend shopping in person, though! 


  • Offer flash sale promos online
  • Free gifts for online orders


  • Bestsellers are usually out of stock
  • Poor customer service

Very friendly correspondences

“We are ordering regularly online from Canine & Co for our 6 cats, 2 rats and an adopted desert hamster, and we are extremely satisfied. Very friendly correspondences, friendly and sweet thank you cards and the amazing magnet puzzles, which our daughter loves to adjust regularly on our fridge.”

Emilia Greenwood, Google Review

Reliable shipping and user-friendly website

“Always come back to their online store. I have purchased things for my doggy on many sites, and Canine Co is my favourite. Website is easy to use, reliable shipping, products always arrive in the best condition, and correspondence of my orders are helpful. The thing that stands out most is their service. Always friendly, always helpful, always understanding.”
