I purchased a puppy in early September 2014 and less than a week later she had a bacterial infection in her intestines. It costed me close to $500 to get this treated and alot of clean up. What a horrible experience, if I wasn't in love

The owner of this store has already owned this store. He didn't take care of it before why should he do it this time? They will tell you they don't sell puppies from puppy mills but they do. You can check this by calling the u.s. humane society. This store is even more costly than when he owned it before. And I can tell you when negative reports turn up here they seem to somehow disapear very soon afterwards. I've been watching this since they reopened. So read fast. I've also checked out there fish selection, very little, and twice as much as any other in town. Hope people get to read this.

Realistically this is the best place to buy animals in Joliet. If this store was in a more affluent suburb I??d probably only give it three stars. I??ve been shopping there for years so I??m cutting them a break. It is an older store but its been renovated a few times. The newly expanded saltwater fish section is pretty nice and their freshwater fish selection has got much better. Some saltwater fish there are cheaper than you can find online. It's the only place in Joliet to buy live corals. I buy fish supplies and most of the stuff is cheaper than petco or petsmart. They have nice tame birds too. I buy my bird supplies there too. If you like pet stores that have animals you??ll like this place, if you don??t like pet stores that have animals you will not like this place go somewhere else.

Whomever writes and good review for this place must be a friend of the owner. This place gives any good store a bad name. They are the most expensive store in the area. They don't take care of their pets and would say anything to you, to get you to spend money. Clean up up store and take better care of all your animals, or start selling bugers and fries instead. Your a disgrace!

Why do people Lie? I feel I need to rebut the review "Why reopen just to sell it." She has her facts about the owners completely wrong. I am a friend of the family who owns the store. First of all there is not just one owner its owned by a family. And Belinda one of the owners is there almost everyday, and if she is not there her brother Paul is. They both have over 15 years experience in the pet industry, you will not find any owners more knowlegeable. Since that reviewer has all the facts wrong about the owners it calls into question anything se wrote. It makes you wonder what kind of people write reviews about Petland.

I bought puggle from this store and he is a cool little critter. He is a little inperfect like all living things but it's the inperfections that make him more endearing. I would buy anther mix breed from this store there are some unique ones.

Finally a petstore in joliet with a good selection os salt water fish and corals. I've been to bigger stores that have a bigger selection but for the Joliet area this is the best. Healthy live stock including corals and inverts. Good supply of frozen foods but no high end equipment such as skimmers.

I WILL NEVER BUY A DOG FROM THE PETLAND STORE IN JOLIET, ILLINOIS. I BOUGHT AN AKC REGISTERED DOG FROM PETLAND IN JOLIET, ILLINOIS, FOR $1,400.00, NOT INCLUDING THE ADDITIONAL $1,000 I SPEND ON NEEDLES, HEARTWORM, KENNEL, GROOMING TOOLS AND MUCH MORE. WELL, THE DOG WAS NEVER AKC REGISTERED. DID I GET MY MONEY BACK? HECK NO! IN THE FINE PRINT, IT SAYS THE REGISTRATION PAPERS ARE A COURTESY AND THE RETAILER IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ERRORS, OMMISIONS OR MISREPRESENTATIONS BY 'OTHERS'. WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE THE INNOCENT BUYER WHO BUYS THE DOG? WELL, IT LEFT THIS BUYER $1,700 POORER. BUYER BEWARE! I WILL NEVER BUY A DOG FROM PETLAND IN JOLIET, ILLINOIS AND IF YOU ARE WISE, YOU WILL KEEP YOUR MONEY IN YOUR POCKET. NEVER BUY AN AKC DOG UNLESS YOU HAVE THE AKC REGISTRATION PAPERS IN YOUR HAND AND CALL AKC TO VALIDATE THE ID NUMBERS. THIS WARNING CAME FROM REPUTABLE BREEDERS AND AKC ITSELF.

I have been in this store several times. Besides their very high prices, they don't seem to know anything about the products they sell. All they want to do is try to sell sell sell, anything. For this reason I don't care for any pet store that works on comission. My wife bought a filter system that doesn't work well on our aquarium, we go back in and imform us we bought the wrong size. I told them that she bought it because they said it would work well. $189.99 later it doesn't work well and they wanted to sell me another for 299.99. My son looked at a puppy golden retriever when I asked the price I fell over $1600.00, plus extras. Then went on to inform us that their a rare breed, and that was the reason for the high price tag. I asked if they had any puppy under a $1000.00 and he no, not at this time. Needless to say we went to another store in town.

I had heard bad things about this pet store from various people. That the animals are usually sick and whatnot. However my boyfriend and I had fallen in love with one of the puppies there, he's a pedigree came from a breeder, full championship bloodlines the works. This was about 4 months ago. Ever since we brought him home he's been sick. He is still sick to this day. The 2nd day we had him we noticed his urine was bright red, he had a very bad UTI. He needed meds for that, and he had kennel cough...which we put him on meds for. Not even a week later we found out he had mange. BAD. In the first two month's of owning him we spent well over 2000 dollars on meds, tests, and general care for him. Mind you we dont mind caring for him as he needs it, but it is just ridiculous that we pay 1000.00 for a dog and end up spending another 2000.00 on him in vet care within a couple month's. Not to mention that he has a heriditary mange that will be with him the rest of his life. Like I said we love him and will do anything for him, but there are people who may not be able to provide for a sick animal the way we've been able to. I wonder how many animals end up abandoned, or put to sleep due to the owners not being able to dish out a grand here and a grand there for their animals care. The pet store is wrong for not checking out the breeders who NEVER should have bred dogs with Demodectic mange in the first place and for not informing the buyers that the health of the animal, and breeders background are not a priority. I feel so bad for the animals that are bred not out of love, and bettering of a breed but strickly for money.

Pros: Average prices.

Cons: Uninformed staff, the buy from puppy mills.

I enjoy shopping at Petland although their prices are higher than most stores, they are clean. One thing I don't particulary care for is being followed around by an extremely over helpful employee. I do understand that they work on commission, but I don't like to be followed.
