Numerous times over the past several years, I have turned to Animal Farm, in particular John, for answers to all my questions about my dog. I find him to be extremely knowledgeable with all things relating to dogs (and I'm sure it is the same for cats). My dog loves to chew and is a fussy eater. John has always been able to recommend great chew toys, better than my shoes, healthy treats, and food that my dog actually eats! I too, try to support local businesses and will continue to shop at Animal Farm. For the person who believed they were treated rudely, maybe you should take a step back and listen to how you treated "the person behind the counter"

I have shopped at Animal Farm for years because they are in my neighborhood and I like to patronize local businesses. I have put up with a certain amount of rudeness on the part of the owner/employees, but today was the last straw. A man behind the counter, who said his name was John and claimed to be the owner, was so rude to me that I was simply astonished. I will never set foot in the store again. Neighbor or not, I will not patronize this store.

This store is the best! I can't believe the people posting about their negative experiences were shopping at the same store. I've always had a positive experience here; the store makes me happy when I enter and I immediately want to purchase lots of fun things for my little guy!

I had such a bizarre experience in here yesterday. The owner was incredibly rude and unhelpful. I purchased a large bag of Innova Evo dog food and was also interested in buying a heated dog bed but she refused to help me. She walked away from the counter without answering my request for help deciding which bed to purchase. I tried to get someone else to help me but no one seemed to be able to answer any questions and basically told me to read the description on the box. I'm not sure why but I bought the dog food anyway. Later, I went to Holistic Hound and had an entirely different experience. In addition, the same bag of dog food was several dollars cheaper.

OMG! I was trying to purchase seed and rope perches. I asked her which one was appropriate for an African Grey Parrot, and she said she didn't know. I asked her if she was the expert here? She snatched the seed and perches and told me to leave the store, go buy my seed elsewhere, that I had an attitude, and SHE CALLED ME A B!!!

I am appalled at the behavior of this woman. After reading other reviews, I realize that this is TYPICAL behavior for her. I am not in the GLBT community. I am an elementary school teacher, mixed race (Black, White, Native American) and over 50 years old.

In addition to filing a complaint with the BBB, Berkeley Chamber of Commerce, I am writing reviews on this store everywhere I can. I hope you don't shop here ever. I used to be a regular customer years ago, purchasing all my bird supplies from this store.

NOT EVER AGAIN.

I have gone there several times and when I left with my purchases, I thought it was me. I would ask myself : "What did I do to upset her? Try harder next time. Does she train her young grandson or what? The owner of the store is elitist, condescending and has no place in sales. Just because she owns the two stores doe not mean that she can be rude, mean and a total piece of work. I bought a large finch feeder two weeks ago. The sale was facilitated by a young man. The finches did not come for 2 weeks. I looked at my receipt and I did not purchase beds, liners or whatever was printed at the bottom of the receipt that clearly stated that they do not exchange or refund those. I purchased a finch feeder what was not feeding and did not get any redirect or instruction as to how I could get the feeder to work. She told me I bought bad seed. I felt like a high school student being absolutely berated and put down in front of my peers. I will never recommend anyone to go there to shop for their pets and I would rather drive to a place far to meet the needs of my pets. Shame, shame, shame. What a shondra.

Pros: friendly, helpful service

FYI the "rude" woman the previous reviewer spoke of as unfriendly to the GLBT community is one of the owners, she is a lesbian! the other owner is a gay man, and all but one of the employees are gay.

The service is absolutely terrible!! I have gone to this location a few times because I like the selection. However, the woman who owns this shop is incredibly RUDE! Each time I've gone there I have asked her a question about recalled pet foods or their coupon program and she always speaks to me in a very condescending way and with disrespect. She is also completely unhelpful. I even overhear her on the phone being rude to another customer who had called for a vet referral.

This last weekend was the final straw! She yelled at my 2 year old son for touching the cat toy mice!!! WHICH I was purchasing anyway. Then she told me that "she doesn't allow children in the store". My son is very well behaved and I was standing over him at the time. She was completely out of line to yell at my child!!! I think this store doesn't want Lesbian and Gay people and families to come into the shop. It's quite clear to me that they have a policy of discrimination. I will never shop here again! There are plenty of other good, local and honest shops around.

I love Animal Farm, have been going there for years. They're very helpful, have an ongoing discount coupon program, and on top of their regular pet/animal companion store also have a next-door Wild Bird Annex full of wonderful products. I reluctantly shop at Pet Food Express and Petco every once in a while, but as big as they are they don't hold a candle to AF. AF is very discriminating about their selection, *and* has a large selection.

I have a dog but noticed that Animal Farm stocks food and supplies for many species other than canine and feline. I like their selection of dog toys and treats. Prices are average, not as low as some of the other local shops. Still, it's fun to wander the aisles and find little treasures to share with my dog. Good selection of collars and leashes.
