I was amazed at how clean the store was. There were so many animals, from the outside the store look small but inside the store had so much to offer. The people working there seem so helpful and knowledgeable. I was used to the regular pet stores. This store was like a well kept zoo, animals of all kinds. There were animals that I never saw out of a zoo except for the time I went to Australia. The birds that were there seemed to be well used to people. Even some of the sale staff had them on their shoulders. I would recommend this pet store to all of my friends, especially those with children as it is a wealth of information on the care and needs of each animal. I notice that there was a space next door to the store and was wondering it they were going to make a grooming center. I would gladly take my poodle there to have him groomed as I saw how well they take care of the other dogs and cats.
I do always purchase my fish from here, however for advice on my fish will depend on who I talk to. If you are going to get fish, do your research first, then ask questions. My husband purchsed a fish for me as a gift, however a week later it died, they took it back without problems but I discovered the fish was supposed to be brackish not freshwater as they advertised it as. The response of 'yerh its brackish but they can go in freshwater, perhaphs it was your water' (I test my water with an API kit weekly, I know my perameters are fine) was not good enough for me. I asked for them not to sell this style fish again under the premise of being freshwater. I always check online before I buy. Variety on other supplies are great, we have had several pets and they seem to have food for everything. Prices are good too. Staff are always friendly.
I've taken several classes at "Canines in Action" with each of my dogs. We (my dogs and I) have learned so much. It is very nice to know that there are ways to train dogs other than using corrective collars or shouting. All of the techniques I've learned were really effective (and SO much fun for the dogs). For the first time, I might even be able to consider doing some obedience trials with one (or all!) of my dogs! They're having a blast!
