Jasmine Amlani, owner and president of Oli’s Pet Stuff, said she opened her pet food and supply store on Bulverde Road because she could not find any other nearby stores that specialize in natural pet food.

Oliver, her bichon poodle, copes with skin allergies and is a finicky eater, Amlani said. She said she was also inspired after watching the reality television show “The Profit” that featured a specialty pet store.

“I moved into the area and thought, ‘Wow, there’s nothing in the area,’ and I’m sure there’s a lot of dogs that need specialty foods, so that’s how I started here,” Amlani said.

Amlani opened Oli’s Barkery in 2019, then changed the name to Oli’s Pet Stuff to reflect the diversity of the shop’s offerings.

Oli’s focuses on various pet food brands with natural ingredients that can be helpful for pets with allergies or sensitive stomachs.


“We’re kind of like a Trader Joe’s for dogs,” she said.

In addition to freeze-dried, dehydrated, grain-free kibble and canned foods, Oli’s has birthday cakes and cookies; goat’s milk; and various frozen treats, such as yogurt and ice cream.

A “chew bar” sits in the middle of the store, featuring several types of natural, rawhide-free chews and bones.

Oli’s has a large selection of CBD-infused treats, honey, oils and peanut butter as well as dog and cat toys, accessories, collars, beds, leashes, harnesses and grooming products.

Oli’s sells several items made by pet-centric ventures from around the San Antonio area.

“We work with local, small companies that make their own stuff and showcase their things,” Amlani said.

Oli’s also provides self-wash stations and grooming by appointment.

Amlani said she and her colleagues try to educate pet owners about specific products.

“[Customers] do like that homey feel we have here,” Amlani said.
