Even if these are puppy mill dogs, not buying one won’t make any difference. Where do you think shelter dogs come from? What’s the difference? None, really. Any dog has the chance of health problems and behavior problems. It doesn’t matter where you get them. I have a champion sired GSD that has a lot of issues, from a well known and responsible breeder. If you want to bash someone, bash the breeders who are not taking care of their dogs. Why bash a store for doing what stores do? You wouldn’t yell at a fish for swimming, would you? Of course not. Stores make profits. That’s what they do. Breeders, however, should do it for the love of the animal.
Anyway, I got my chocolate Shih Tzu puppy from here about 2 weeks ago. He is extremely smart, and very well behaved. He’s damn near potty trained, great in his crate and already knows sit. He doesn’t even need a leash! My other two dogs (a rescue black lab and a champion sired GSD) were not nearly as easy. Max (?) was so helpful and attentive, and when I had to go back for more food the sales manager helped me pick out a treat that my puppy loved and gave me so much information. They’ve been very upfront about everything and I even found the breeder that my puppy came from. They don’t hide anything. Thanks for being so great and helping me find the greatest addition to my family.
Great staff and a wonderful selection of healthy dogs.
Love to spend time there loving on animals
Great staff and shopping experience!
The staff was highly knowledgeable and extremely kind. I fell in love with one of the puppies but couldn’t rationalize paying $2,200.00 when I’ve seen them for half the price. I read and understand why their puppies are pricier and honestly, I could see it…but it’s still hard to swallow. Overall though, I think the store and staff were fabulous.
A few years ago me and my girlfriend purchased one Havanese and then another. Ziggy and Zoey. My son and I visit the store often to play with all the puppies. I can tell you, having had pure bred dogs before, this store is the most wonderful place to purchase a puppy for your family. Our dogs are the most amazing that I have ever seen or had. The people who work and own the store are wonderful to deal with, helpful and knowledgeable. There is no way that these puppies come from a puppy mill. I purchased my lab many years ago from a supposed reputable breeder. While we kept the puppy, it ended up having major health problems. So, I would totally go back to find another puppy at this store.
We bought our cockerpoo, Poppy, from Petland just under two weeks ago. We hadn’t intended to go to a store but there are no breeders locally where you can see the puppy and its environment which I know is recommended. The internet is a minefield, we thought we had found a great puppy, the reviews on the website and Facebook were great but on deeper digging the breeder was on the humane society’s list of 100 worst puppy mills in America! So, having seen that Petland had a cockerpoo we “just went for a look”. We asked a staff member to point her out as most dogs there are furry mixes but she went to get her and put us in a play pen together and of course she became ours. The dog was happy, healthy and very friendly they are used to people as they are taken out and played with so much. We were a little shocked by the price as generally this dog plus shipping would have worked out cheaper, on the other hand we have friends who have picked up dogs from the airport they have never seen before. We decided to buy her and we would leave her a couple of days for her last shots and her final vet visit. Unfortunately we were unable to pick her up as she had caught a cold and needed to be completely healthy before handed over to us. We asked if we could go and see her which they said was a good idea as that would help her recovery. When we went up we could see that she had been treated very well despite being in quarantine and she got super excited when Lea popped her head over the play pen showing us she was happy and well taken care of. There are a couple of things I would like to say having read the other reviews. The store is affiliated to the American Kennel Club and they state quite categorically that they do not buy from puppy mills I think that the AKC might have something to say if this were not true. The details about the dog are fairly sketchy but we do have the address where she came from and parents names. We certainly don’t want to show her but a few more details would be good. Someone said about the conditions of the dogs in cages. Well, the dogs have to be somewhere during the day and yes, they have to do their business most of which falls through the floor and yes, dogs eat poo, how do you think the mamma dog keeps her litter clean? The cages are cleaned on a regular basis as are the pens where people play with the puppies. We spent a long time there with our dog and can tell you that the staff members are friendly and knowledgeable and take good care of all of the animals. We brought our feisty madam home on the Thursday and on Monday we took her to our vet who pronounced her healthy and told us we had a good one! We are very happy with Poppy and on balance although we spent more than we thought we would, she came to us with all her shots and good amount of guarantees and we didn’t have to travel to goodness knows where to see her. Thank you Petland and thank you Lea you were great!
My Husband bought me an African Grey parrot for my birthday. Over a year later I had some concerns for my baby. so I Called Petland, and the girl that answered the phone was patient with all of my questions. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. She gave me answers to my to every question and even gave me some tips that have helped me give my baby a better life. I recommend Petland to everyone!!! Thank you Petland! you have a customer for life!!!
I bought my poodle there and let me tell you. It was the best experience I have ever had in a pet store. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They matched me with a dog I never thought I would own and I could not have been more happy to be proven wrong. My poodle is the best not only that but, they taught me to potty train and they gave me so many training tools this was the easiest dog I have ever had. The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable it blew my mind. I go there for all my pet needs now they defiantly earned my business. How people have this place anything other than 5 stars blows my mind I am in there every week they all know who I am they love my dog it is a wonderful place to be. I think it is just bitter people. Anyways go check this place out I highly recommend them, they care about you and most importantly the animals.
Tons of cute animals that you can take out and pet. You can check online for what dogs they currently have available
