This place is always dirty, you can never find an employee on the floor for help, and they do not take care of their fish tanks., I was just there for some fish supplies and there were 8 tanks with dead fish in them, 1 the fish was dying swimming on its side and I told the girl, it's not nice to see that fish just dying like that, get it out, and she just laughed and went to talk to her boyfriend.

What a horrible place to go I will never return. I went in yesterday and nobody was available to help me and the store wasn't even busy it just seemed like the store was a ghost town when it came to employees, where were they all? The grooming salon was dirty and the looked incredibly unprofessional and I already knew about the dog training there and was warned never to take my dog to the trainers there and after reading all the bad reviews about it I'm glad I had taken my friends advice! Stick with Petsmart it's a much nicer store with a great staff.

I have been a frequent customer at petco in ventura, my dogs love the cookie bar there. I have been shopping there since the store was first open, I have seen many employees come and go. It seems like there are new faces every time I go in. Sometimes the service is not so great when it comes to the sales people and the trainers. The people in the grooming department have always been nice and helpful, It's never smelled and all the dogs seemed to be happy while waiting to get groomed. Im not a fan of people who think they know it all and are rude and pushy thats exactly what I got when I took my lab there for training classes I was told the head trainer was fantastic.... not so much!! I found her to be very pushy and she was trash talking everyone else in the store to make her self look better. I was so disgusted by this that I took my dog to pet smart for training. I wish I could continue to take my dogs to petco to be groomed but I wont be returning there until the rude old lady dog trainer is gone.... I have spent tons of money in petco but now pet smart will be getting my business.

True a review should contain facts not name calling which sounds like this is coming from an angry person whom has nothing to with her time ( Tasha G, ) this does include you in this. A review should include facts, which some of these do. So I am of the opinion some of them are true. The other name calling and useless information is, trivial along with the people whom write them. When name calling is involved it usually is an employee out for some type of useless revenge hiding behind the internet because they are cowards. Yes this is my real name and can be looked up.

I agree Petco is the best. Everything is like new including new store manager and grooming salon manager. I have been a Petco shopper for some time and its great to shop in a store where there is a friendly staff! My dogs get their nails done by Wade and were trained by Sandra. Petco always has what I need for not only my dogs but my Ball Python as well!

After hearing all the fuss and reviews about the trainer, at work. My wife and I had to go see for ourselves. Read the reviews and think, why would just one person go on such a rampage about a trainer is there an underlying reason? So because of my nature, I like to form my own opinions, so we went. Yes if we were to ever get a dog my wife and I would sign with Sandra. She was helpful and took the time out to get fish for us.

Or well I should say Frankie, hey guys go check it out for yourselves. Personally had to see, after reading and looking for a trainer for my barking Beagle she had her quiet in just a few minutes! So many reviews!!! WOW She is going to be famous!

We heard about all the fuss also, does bad news travel fast or what? We spoke to the General Manger then contacted the corporate office. Apparently whoever is making the bad news about the trainer didn't realize they could be traced through your ISP address and it is being looked into. We do not own a dog but have been shopping at this Petco for some time. Sandra has always been helpful to bad someone is not only insulting her but all of us who shop here.

Hi just noted all the comments about the dog trainer in this store. Only one thing to say we love her. She understood our needs and helped us get our dog on the right tract. Highly recommend her and cannot understand why anyone would give her a bad mark.

Going to this Petco is more of a side show than a pet store! Really what head is this manager thinking with? Your clerks at night wear safety pins to tighten her shirt to show off her breast, wears short tights? Your dog trainer is HUH? a personal trainer. When you go into this store in the day you have a customer service adviser that is soooooo phoney, the rest of the staff is so busy fixing there cloths to look sexy, go to petco people where the real trainers are! You can actually get help without a boob in your face!

Loved it! You are right signed with their new trainer Sandra and love it!!!! Our whole class went on to the next level, she is really the sweetest! What is so funny is she is so tiny and our Pitts are so big she just gets them in tune with her and it is so amazing to watch this little tiny person work with these big dogs. Gives me the confidence if this little tiny woman can handle these Pitts she must be good. I have seen large trainers work with these dogs and really nothing can compare with the compassion she has with these guys.

Love it! They have a new trainer there that rocks! She's older and has it together. Signed up and have been so happy with Razz ever since. We really needed to do something, he was out of control knocking people over, nipping really thought we were going to have to send him away!!! Sandra the trainer saved Razz! Age and experience is the way to go we have tried younger trainers and they just didn't have the sage behind them!

If your children read be careful! We went into Petco grooming salon when my little girl said the words f--- y-- I was so ashamed. Then when Haley showed me where she seen it, I was angry. In large letters it is tattooed on the groomer Ivy!! We spoke to the store manager Leon and he said Petco lets their employees have self expression. Tha'ts nice but what about the kids reading this self expression. Stick with Petsmart people.

Petco has the friendliest, most helpful staff of any store in the county. They always stop whatever they are doing to help me find anything, or even load a large bag of dog food. The store is always clean and nice, which I can't even say about some other Petco stores. Their grooming salon leaves a little to be desired, but I believe if they had a consistent staff of groomers the service would improve greatly.

I took my curly haired dog here because I wanted to get him a hair cut ASAP and my regular groomer had no openings. I made the appointment and came in to drop off my dog and was shocked. I had been satisfied with this Petco and other Petcos but had never used their grooming services. The grooming room smelled so bad of number 1 and 2 and of very dirty animals. I felt nauseous and in retrospect, I can't believe I left my dog there! I told them that I would like my dog's hair cut to be left as long as they could. My dog had some mats and normally my regular groomer would have tried brushing and combing some it first and then left it fairly short but not shaved to the skin. I left my dog and they immediately put him in the back in one of the metal crates. My husband picked our dog up later in the day and paid $55 for the cut. When I saw our dog at home I noticed that they had shaved him down to the skin and left his two sacks cut. The next day, I took our dog to the vet because the cut was inflammed and bothering him and they gave me a head cone and some medication to prevent infection. I went back to Petco the next night and told a couple of the checkout people about it and they offered a free pet grooming. I said no thank you and that I would prefer to never have my dog groomed there again.

Pros: good location, convenient

Cons: dirty, smells gross, the groomer i met was gruff
