Don't shop for dogs. There are plenty of wonderful dogs that can be adopted.

I swear some people that write reviews are RETARDED as they take one bad experience & base the rest of their life off it! I've been going to Petland for 3 years now & beyond the ever changing employees, they have the best puppies, hell animals in general than any Petco or Petsmart or any other local store. What people dont know or people dont realize is the Petland is a franchise not a local independent mom & pop store, so they have a corporate headquarters & can be found every where in the U.S.A. They also got a new owner January 2008, which I met & is very nice, and helpful & knows what the hell they are talking about.

The thing that keeps me coming back is they are the ONLY pet store that give you a warranty on ANY animal you buy!! People are so cheap & expect cheap yet when their animal gets sick or needs the basic shots or spay or neuter then being cheap gets really damn expensive!! Every puppy comes from a licensed USDA certified supplier which the owner is more than happy to show you where they buy puppies if you want to check the places out yourself, hell they allowed KMTV (channel 3) to tour their kennels & inspect their puppies which no other local petstore has EVER done!

You get a puppy with a WARRANTY that includes the first vet visit FREE, FREE microchip, FREE spay/neuter, and you get this valuable kit with Puppy Boost that is critical when you buy a new puppy, high grade food, a kennel, and so much more. Since you never know what genetic problems or potential medical problems that could arise they cover the puppy up to the purchase price so you get your money back if something happens which I think is pretty damn generous as I've bought sick kittens, guinea pigs, and hamsters from Petco & Petsmart and if it was past 7 days I was SOL!!

Petland also carries HIGH quality food, food you've never heard of that you should be feeding your pets but since you've never seen or heard of it you dont know. They also carry the brands you've heard of, but they have some foods that your pet eats less & you get more value than what you would feed on a cheaper brand.

Customer service is great, there will always be that one person that isnt doing a great job, but you get that no matter where you shop! You will get a knowledgeable owner and managers for certain & if you are in to fish they have a kick butt fish department with some of the rarest breeds I've ever seen in both fresh & saltwater. They will test your water & PH levels & you can buy water for your tank from them which helps you in not killing your fish!

Bird lovers listen up as the new owner expanded their bird section & birds & has some very UNIQUE breeds & colorful birds! You can get a Macaw, Lorikeet, & they do carry the common birds at great prices!

I'm not a reptile lover, but I've noticed unique reptiles I've never seen or heard of, and they have an abundant supply of crickets. They carry turtles, snakes, spiders, and lizards & have all the cute furry animals too!

For those of you that dont watch the news regularly on Jan 29th, 2010 the Supreme Court through out 29 out of 31 cases files by USHS claiming ALL Petland stores buy from puppymills. They claimed they had over 35,000 complaints yet could only get 31 actual people to come forward, funny how that works. Their false claims were over turned last Thursday by the Supreme Court & only 2 claims were allowed to go through which probably will be thrown out as well, but I want people to realize that until you actually go in & ask the owner or any owner of a petstore to show you where they buy their puppies dont jump on the bandwagon & accuse just because you watch a video or saw a photo. If you take the time to investigate them U will see they do very little for animals & use the donations to pay salaries, lawsuit & advertising to get donations, look up national HS, not your local Humane Society(they're legit)

I have shopped at this store for years, and have spoken many times with both the original and current owners. They have always had the pets' interests at heart, and are constantly trying to improve the store. They have always carried the best products and have had the best selection of pets. No other store in Omaha can compare.

The people below who posted that Petland gets its puppies from puppy mills are obviously sadly misinformed. I have purchased two beautiful puppies from Petland, and they are both amazing dogs. They are perfect, healthy, and excellent representations of their breeds. Are these people just listening to idiotic groups like HSUS, who spout lies just to get people to donate money? Maybe those folks should visit http://www.consumerfreedom.com/downloads/reference/docs/200810_CCF_7Things_HSUS.pdf and get the real facts. Or try http://www.activistcash.com/organization_overview.cfm/oid/136. As I said before, I've spoken with the owner and I KNOW where he gets his puppies - they come from USDA licensed and inspected breeders, and are mostly local. People need to get a clue before they accuse someone just because they heard lies from someone else.

The staff at Petland has always been helpful and very knowledgeable, and I have never had any problem getting assistance. They have a great selection of products, and only sell those products that are good for the animals. Case in point - they stopped selling cedar and pine bedding for small animals because it tends to cause upper respiratory issues. PetSmart and Petco still carry it though! It's called responsibility, and Petland gets it.

Also, they have a fantastic community service program! They've provided funding for nine bullet proof vests for K9 police dogs in the Omaha area.... any other store do that?? I don't think so!

Bottom line, Petland cares - about pets, about customers, and about the community. I dare anyone to match that!

They have highly knowledgable sales people and a good variety of animals. They are a little bit expensive on some things like dog and cat food and the animals. We bought a bird there and everyone remembers us and asks how Margola is doing. They carry the bags of bedding outside to my car for me even though I say they do not have too. The manager is a real nice guy and always stops to talk to me when I am in the store. If I ever had a problem with any of my pets, I know I could count on them to help me figure it out or fix it.

PROS: great knowledge base
CONS: some acessory and food items a little pricey
