It’s the one thing dog people and cat people can agree on: when it comes to pet supplies, head to Habitat.
Welcome to Habitat: Australia’s home to pet supplies. Established in 2012, we’re an independent Australian, family-owned company. We might be small, but like all little dogs, we've got all the determination and tenacity of a company twice our size!
Here at Habitat, we love pets just as much as you do. That's why we know that pets deserve the very best – which is why we stock the best bowls, toys, collars, treats and pet food we can find.
We’re based in Melbourne, with stores in Altona North and Chirnside Park, but thanks to our new website, pet lovers all over Australia can experience what makes Habitat unique. We're adding more and more products to our online range every day.
Wherever you live, your pet will love its local Habitat.
The Habitat Team
The Habitat story started in 2012, when co-founders, Dean and Rachelle opened their very first store in Chirnside Park.
Rachelle was a buyer for one of Australia's leading fashion retailers, while Dean's been working with pets his whole life, learning the ropes at his family's pet store as a teenager.
Take Rachelle's career in the fast-paced fashion world and Dean's years of experience in the pet industry and you've got Habitat - a pet store with a stylish difference!
We might be Australia’s newest name in pet supplies, but we're determined to share what makes us unique with the rest of Australia.
You won’t find a more passionate, knowledgeable team than ours. Between us, we've got decades of industry experience, and we're totally committed to offering the best customer service and advice around.
Find your local Habitat
Come and visit us in Chirnside Park or Altona North - we'd love to see you! Your pets are more than just welcome in our stores - they’re offered free treats and given plenty of pats…and frequently take a starring role on our Instagram page!

Paws for thought
Habitat is so much more than a pet store. We’re determined to make the world a better place for pets and people alike. We sponsor students and young people who are making a difference in their local communities, and we work with pet rescue groups to host pet adoption days at our stores.
Our favourite colour is green for a good reason. As an eco-friendly company, we’ve banned plastic bags from our stores and we’re taking steps to minimise the amount of waste our business generates.
Whether you visit our stores or you order from us online, we’re so excited you've decided to shop with us.
