They have the freeze dried raw food available that I feed to my pup and cat. Always friendly and helpful staff.
Staff is always helpful and nice. I get most of doggos supplies here.
Awesome place for sustainable, local when possible, healthy food, treats, safe toys, great gear! Night and day difference with staff there compared to most places as the staff all know all their products and are trainers.
Knowledgeable staff, great products
Outstanding! Exceptionally helpful, knowledgable staff, great products and wonderful classes. If you have a dog, this should be your first stop.
Absolutely amazing Katie was super friendly and very knowledgable. Thank you for having such a wise, good hearted soul working for ya! Looking forward to trying the treats & samples and finding a food Mommas adores. More...
2 years ago we did puppy training in store with Jake and it was so much fun! We learned tons. We are now also doing in home training with Holly and even after one session our dog Pepper's barking has become so much better. Thank you guys for being so empathetic and helping us to understand our Pepper's needs better. More...
Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Come here whenever I'm in Vancouver.
Very knowledgeable and helpful staff.
Quality and large selection of dog treats and products. Staff are knowledgeable. Returns are easy. Suggest parking on a sidestreet rather than the tiny parking lot.
The staff was very knowledgeable about each and every product, and extremely friendly and helpful in answering our (many) questions!
Super fun and great place for anything dog related. We got a great collar and leash not to mention a shampoo that changed our pups life! He’d get big bumps and hives for days after a bath from a vet recommended shampoo and since we switched over to one suggested by discover dogs, no more bumps! Yay! Thanks for being great! More...
A really wonderful local company headed by seriously knowledgable dog lovers. There's a real good chance they'll have just what you need for you and your pooch.
Lovely place. We have been returning costumers for years!
Well informed staff. Pretty good supply of high quality cat food too.
Love this little pet supply shop! Friendly and informative staff that clearly love dogs. They only carry high quality, healthy dog food, treats and supplements. They also offer Dog training classes etc. More...
Jake has trained us humans well and the puppy is very happy our progress. He rewards us with good behavior and a willingness to do our bidding most of the time. Most of the time because he is a Siberian Husky, a so called Ancient Breed and there is a limit to his willingness to be tamed.
Seriously an 'Ancient Breed' is a polite way of saying a dog that doesnt like to be told what to do and expects to run around the tundra all day.
We faced a specific additional challenge. He broke his leg at 10 weeks and so didnt get a chance to socialize at the right time. The normal challenges are high energy, willfull, jumper, biting, barking, ....
We have had such fun and loved what Jake taught us. And Jack is under control, as compliant as you could expect from a 7 month puppy. It so non confrontational. Training is a happy time for us and the dog. He loves doing the work and we enjoy making progress and seeing a happy balanced dog. Balanced meaning non obsessive, de-emphasizing the the difficult breed characteristics.
Jake is a very soothing happy person to work with.

Did the puppy obedience class and it truly changed my relationship with my brand new rescue dog! Jake is a great trainer, very knowledgeable with a variety of dogs, patient and kind with us owners and our pups alike! All the staff are very supportive offering advice about products or training in general! I would recommend Discover Dogs to anyone � More...
Tanya is a miracle worker for sure, she has been looking after my dogs for about 10 years and they love her.
Amazing store that has great selection of locally made, sustainable products!!
What an amazing business run by amazing people! I feel privileged to have the opportunity for discover dogs to answer all of my questions I have about training our puppy Ozzy. Quality through and through- i'd recommend these guys to anyone! More...
First of all they sell west paw toys which have warranty, I came back 6 months later when they didn't have the exact same toy stuffed frog and let me exchange without receipt for warranty these guys are the bomb.
We use Discover Dogs walking service for our dog Dexter. They are always very accommodating and professional. Dexter gets exercise, socialization and training during his walks. He also gets a towel dry and teeth brushed afterwards then we get a personalized emailed report of this walk. I highly recommend their services. More...
What an awesome store! Instead of having a huge selection of shit products, they have a limited selection of carefully selected ones.
I tried four different stores looking for new collars for my dogs. They all seemed to carry only in tiny or giant sizes, and were either super cheap or super expensive.
These guys have great prices & great stuff.
Now I know where to go next time my dogs need something! More...
We love Discover Dogs! Our pups Paisley (Boston-Frenchie cross) and Spartacus (German shepherd-Border collie cross) have benefitted immensely from their care. They go over and above - detailed walk reports, behaviour work, health care like ear cleans and nail trims, food delivery from the store, recommendations for some of our pup's health concerns... I could go on. I also appreciate their email response times. Great business, amazing people. Thank you Discover dogs! More...
Our dog Laconn gets his nails done here bi weekly. Its the best place to go in Vancouver. So much love and care.

Came in with my 10 week old Frenchie Puppy to pick up some more chew toys and take a look at the store as I had never been in. They were quite busy but everyone was super friendly & informative and I really appreciate all the information and time they took with us! Can't wait until Bo is old enough to start puppy training! I ended up buying quite a few things and so far he's gone ape shit over the things I got him! Very happy :-) More...

We love Discover Dogs! Pyper hates getting her nails done but DD is helping us help her learn to love (or at least tolerate) it. All the staff are friendly and knowledgeable, especially about raw feeding but they're never pushy. We learn something new every time we go in. We recommend DD to everyone! Thank you for everything! More...
Because they know everything about dogs and are family run ,knowledgeable and friendly
I was so happy I got to check this store out finally . This guy helped me find everything I needed for my 9 week old pup . When I got home I gave my pup his toy/treats/ and sticks and he’s been so occupied that i actually think he’s forgotten that he’s teething . Definitely will come back . More...
We came to Discover Dogs for our puppy classes and were very happy with the program. Its held in the store which at first I thought was strange but later realized it was good for the dogs to have the distractions. I loved my puppy but was getting frustrated with her on walks. I learned all the skills to handle any poor behaviour and no longer get frustrated with her. We also found that most puppy classes had a max of 8 dogs and Discover Dogs was 4. More 1 on 1 with the teacher. More...
Went here for puppy training. After classes with Jake, our pup learned to listen to commands and walk flawlessly on leash.
Excellent selection of dog treats in store for great prices. More...
Awesome place! Great selection for my dogs. They carry good, local brands of raw dog food and bones. There are plenty of treats and staples like leashes and collars. They bring in solid products, lots to choose from. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful. More...
Discover Dogs is the best dog store we've visited in Vancouver. The staff are exceptionally knowledgeable about diet, preventative health care and training. As new dog parents, we felt totally over our head the first day with our terrier. The staff at Discover Dogs walked us through just about everything; the advice and coaching we received at the Saturday healthcare hours immediately increased our confidence. The nail trim went so smoothly too! This will definitely be our go-to place for all our dog needs. More...
I took my dog here for puppy training, had private training from Jake in and around my apartment when she was having a hard time adapting to the house in various ways, call on Discover Dogs for dog-sitting when I go away on vacation or work trips, and buy my dog's food, treats, and toys from here. I couldn't ask for a better dog store in the area, we're really fortunate to have Discover Dogs in Fraserhood! More...
These guys were great when I had questions about my dog's feed and I love that they had all sorts of treats that are organic and locally made. Will definitely be back!
Hands down, the most knowledgeable and helpful staff of any pet store I've been to in Vancouver.
So great, friendly and helpful ( and next to Sal Y Limon- bonus). Bought a nightlight for my doggo to wear at night, didn't take a receipt. Got home and the light didn't work. Called to see if I could still get an exchange and they said no prob and also threw in free batteries! Such a nice courtesy; I'll be back! More...

I'm really impressed with both the selection of food and products but also the caring, informative staff. My dog was having digestion issues and it appeared to be related to his food so I went to Discover Dogs on a friend's suggestion to switch up brands. They helped me eliminate some possibilities and recommended some other things I hadn't considered and I was introduced to some great new dog food brands. Because it's my dog and I care if he's in distress I also took him to the vet just in cause his digestion issues were a symptom of something more serious than aversion to ingredients. The vet tech was really condescending when I gave her my hypothesis of what could be wrong based on the information the Discover Dogs people gave me. She laughed it all off and said, "yes, because pet store staff are known for being so knowledgeable" really sarcastically and they wouldn't follow that lead any further in favour of doing of bunch of expensive and unhelpful tests.They sent me home with a large bill and a shrug as to what was actually causing his problems. This was all a couple months ago and I had to switch vets due to moving outside the area. The new vet did some tests and confirmed pretty much exactly what the DD staff had told me about my dog's food issues so I trust these guys implicitly now. They really know what they're talking about and they actually seem to care about each animal that comes in. More...
These guys are really passionate about dogs! You can be confident that your pooch will be in good hands :)
My favourite store for learning the best way to care for my dog. They have helped with skunk spray, anesthesia-free teeth cleaning, raw food diet, clean, safe and organic dog chew toys and treats. The prices here are competitive and the staff are very friendly and smart. On Friday's and Saturday's 10-2pm they clip nails and give a little check up!! I am so happy that Discover Dogs is my local pet supply store, I highly recommend them. More...
Jake and Discover Dogs are an excellent resource for dog owners. We took their 4 week puppy training course and it was super fun and informative, our puppy loved it. The staff are kind with animals and very knowledgeable about dogs. Their inventory of high quality dog foods, toys and accessories is excellent. Highly recommended. More...
Matthias Lenz from Discover Dogs has been the best dog trainer we have worked with so far. He keeps training techniques simple and they are very effective. I would highly recommend his services to any new and experienced dog owner. Thanks, Matthias, for making training with our dog that much more enjoyable. More...
Best dog store in the city!!! I take my pooch here all the time for treats, toys and all sorts of good stuff. They have awesome classes you can take, and if you leave your dog with them to be walked or looked after you know you're getting top notch service. Also if you have any questions about nutrition you should talk to Natalie 'cause she is just a superstar and will answer all of your questions and she's just a delight to deal with. More...
We use Discover Dogs walking services and they are wonderful! They are attentive and professional with our dog. He gets exercise, socialization, and training during his walks. Afterward, he gets his teeth brushed and we get an emailed report. We also really appreciate that they offer walks everyday and have always been able to fit us in for last minute walks. More...
Discover Dogs is great! We have engaged them in their buddy walks, private walks, pet sitting and healthcare services. You can tell everyone on the DD team loves dogs and go a step further in any service they provide. They are constantly providing ongoing training to our dog Trixie whether on a walk or just from a shop visit. Whenever they walk / pet sit Trixie we also get venture reports from them in the evening on how their day went and helpful tips as well! She has definitely improved in her walks over the past couple of weeks thanks to Discover Dogs. Their prices are a bit on the premium side but you will definitely get your moneys worth! More...
I've walked by a few times, however, it was a sign about a raw food seminar that actually prompted me to go inside and get some information. Sadly due to work will not be able to make the seminar, however, discovered a great place to buy treats for freedom. All natural dog treats in a wide assortment of flavors including apple bacon. The guy working the counter was super friendly, sweet and helpful. He didn't have to try hard with the customer service, it just came naturally to him.P.S. If you're a Canucks fan they have some cool jersey's, official, for you dog. More...
The service here is great. We wandered over, while having our laundry done at the laundromat in the same strip mall, and bought a fun toy for our cat. Nice that they have some cat stuff along with the dog stuff. Lots of great quality foods to choose from, and the store was so clean and organized. Will be back! More...
Popped in while getting a sandwich next door at Ba Le next door.Love that there are a lot of natural pet products. There are also lots of bowls of treat samples you are able to have your little one try, prior to committing to a whole bag. For example, I just found my dog to not be a fan of Herring skin, but doesn't mind the chunks of dried cod.Will be going back soon!:) More...
I have never dealt with a business as responsive and as caring as Discover Dogs. Tanya and Jake have been looking after Isabella my lab cross since she was a young dog. Isabella is was a non trusting, hyper dog. They worked miracles on her through patience and caring. Andrea who looks after Isabella on a regular basis treats Isabella as if she were her own dog. The relationship is truly heart warming. All of dog walkers, Melissa, Megan, Heather, Matthias are so positive and helpful. Chelsea does a great job keeping us scheduled and making sure she always has a walk. This month Isabella was not well and Tanya met with us in the evening to help diagnose her and today brought her to the vet. Isabella even got a special treat from Discover Dogs for her birthday. Their daily reports let me know how Isabella is doing. Isabella will always be a discover dog and I would recommend this business to anyone who asks. Believe me you will be sending thank you notes for this recommendation. More...
They are the best. They have been taking care of our dog ever since he was 10 weeks old. Whenever we need a break from the puppy-life, he goes into the care of someone at Discover dogs for a night. He always waggles his tale when someone comes to pick him up. You can see all their employees LOVE dogs. It's not just their job, its their passion. It's a shame they changed their prices, as they've become a little pricey for me - but I understand, as their service is the best in town.We get a night of every now and then, and he gets 24-hours of nonstop attention. It's great to have a service like this. More...
Discover Dogs is an amazing family run business I wholly recommend.We have been using DD for Dog Coaching and have seen almost instant rewards and now order our dogs Raw food from them as well. We recently rescued a new 3 year old pup from Costa Rica, who is brand new to everything. We didn't really know where to start with training a new adult dog with possible abuse issues and Jake from DD has been a godsend. Our first consultation was free. Jake came into our house, met our two dogs 8 and 3 and started working with us straight away. The most eye opening part of the coaching has been that it's not the dogs that need it but us! We just needed to learn how to communicate with our dogs properly, something that Jake has tons of experience with. If you have a new dog or even an older dog like our 8 year old that just needs some habits corrected I highly recommend giving Jake, Tanya and the DD team a call. DD is quick to equip you with whatever you need to make your dogs lives better, we've got harnesses, toys and treats through them and this past month switched our dogs over to Raw food also delivered by DD. Discover Dogs have been a huge help to us and I look forward to working with them in the future. More...
I have now engaged Discover Dogs in THREE services. In my first review, I gave 5 stars for puppy coaching sessions. In my second review, I gave 5 stars for puppy-sitting. This is my third review and I am, again, giving 5 stars for Buddy Walking services. Ellamae is now going once a week for buddy walks with the DD team. It is $30 per day, she ends up being gone for about 2.5 hours and included in that price is nail clipping, ear cleaning, teeth brushing, body checks and constant training. This is a fantastic service for those busy days at work when I'm unable to get home for Ellamae's lunch time walk. By the time she's a big girl, we hope to send her several times a week for some great fun, socialization and beautifying :)Thanks again, Discover Dogs! More...
