Very expensive!!! Might be better to go to a animal breeder...... but the pets are so cute ♡ they offer a lot of different payment plans and options, also they let you have one-on-one time with the pets before you buy. I will be back very soon.

$3600 for a dog??? I get you're trying to run a business but you don't have to scam me to keep your head above water.

Cute dogs. Too high of a price tag. No animal is worth $3500. I love animals, but not that much.

Overpriced neglected puppies in too small cages. Staff just seemed irritated at having to even touch the pups

This is more like an animal torture shelter or prison. You walk in and there are no wagging tails or singing birds. It's very depressing. I walked in and had to leave. I can't believe it's legal to keep animals this way! This was more depressing than any animal shelter I've been too.

A little pricey, but they're giving you much, much more than simply the animals they sell. They offer affordable credit plans, free vet visits, and even a guarantee on your pet's health for the first few years. As always, adopting a shelter dog should always be your first bet, but if you need to buy a specific dog to fulfill your companionship needs, you can do far worse than Petland.

We decided to play with a tiny pug puppy today and the puppy went by the door to sniff and the lady kicked the door and scared her. That was her way of getting the puppy away from the door. The puppies are contained in tiny cubes and lay on a metal grate. They are selling that pug for $4000!!! UNBELIEVEABLE

Puppies are way over priced and not even full blooded. That with no papers and them requiring you to get your dog fixed is ridiculous especially if you are paying that much. They offer financing but in no way should you have to pay $3800 for a mixed dog that came from a puppy mill. Service was great and store was clean.

The pets are nice but the prices are absolutely absurd, ya wanna get a pet but they want $3 000.00 . Then if you really want it you have to fill out a form to get credit. Why can't you put the pet on layaway for so many days and you can get your pet.

Today was the 1st time I went in to this place and I will never be going back. I didn’t really have much interaction with the staff but I did not like what I saw. I was there looking at all the puppies and a staff member was in the back and opened one of the doors to take the puppy out and she was literally dragging and pushing this puppy because it was too scared to come out. That is NOT how you treat an animal no matter what. There were others standing next to me who saw this (including the people that were buying that specific puppy whom they were taking it out for) and were not happy to see this. These puppies are being taken out maybe 20 times a day for people to hold and live in a small cage and so they’re already anxious and on top of that they get treated like that. This breaks my heart!

I adopted (purchased) my Shih Tzu girl 12 years ago from this particular PetLand. She had a little kennel cough and was a little sick. The personnel informed me about this from beginning and PetLand paid all Vet bills and expenses!!! She is the most beautiful toy little munchkin. Still at age 12 years old, she is happy and active dog. Please, do not believe in so many negative opinions. This people don’t know what they taking about. In many cases small home breeders who try to sell you puppy will convince you that their dogs are superior to others, they will never got sick, they have superior DNA! In fact this delusional thinking comes from them self-and their homes. And of course they charge accordingly for their delusions. Some of them charge up to $ 10 000 for Shih Tzu. This is good that you can go to PetLand and focus on finding right puppy for you without all human biases. After all this is PetLand not HumanLand, right?
