We bought a yorkie there on 3/21/11 and have had no problems at all with him..I do question at times if he is 100% yorkie as his papers say..He looks like one but 2 of my neighbors have them and he is twice their size!..He hardly barks at all compared to the others and his face resembles that of a scottish terrier..He came from Oklahoma and his papers claim he is 100% yoskshire terrier..The other question I have is the vet that gave him his first free check-up was excellent..I don't know why he would risk his reputation for some no good company..In fact I still go to him even though he is 35 miles from my house..When I bought him there was another family that was buying their second dog that day and convinced me this store was very reputable..If I find out he is not 100% as stated what recourse do I have? I do feel bad about the others I've read about that had sick pets from there..You must own a dog to understand..Thank you.

I am so happy this store was shut down! We bought our beagle August 2004. SHE ONLY COST $200 PLUS $100 FOR INSURANCE WHICH THEY TRIED TO TALK US OUT OF. She is the most loving dog. She was sick and stressed from being in the cage for nearly 5 months. She still can not drink water normally as she coughs each time. We are not sure if she was hit in the throat or if it is due to drinking from the gerbil water bottle too long. She was also very sick and needed medications, which were not covered by recommended veterinarian (who costs too much!) I guess her price tag should have told us there was something very wrong. Her pads were very large from walking on the metal cage, but they finally went to normal size. Those poor dogs suffer in those cages and rarely come out to play.

I purchased an Australian Shepherd from there in 2006. He was on sale for a Valentines Day special. 20% off if we put money down on him that day so of course we did. Once we get him home and set up the appointment for the Vet they told us to go to.. it was another 300 after medications and everything else he needed on top of the already 1000 we paid (after the discount) for the puppy. Don't get me wrong I loved my dog to death.. sadly he was hit by a car a year ago. But as for dealing with the Pet Company.. NEVER AGAIN.. They rip you off on prices and they have no idea about the animals that they are selling you.. Our new puppy came from petfinder.com! And no problems at all... I'll never buy an animal from a store again..

I very recently purchased a puppy at this location at the Freehold Mall, NJ. I have been looking to add a puppy to our family, and was looking into reputable breeders. I was in the mall, saw this little guy, and was told I could have him at an unbelievable price. I figured it was because he was so old for a puppy...4 months. First vet visit is free if you go to the recommended vet, and meds are free if there are any issues. So I purchased the puppy, who was 4 months old, having been in that store for 2 whole months! He is alive, he didn't choose to be shipped off to this store, and deserves to be loved, right? I do believe that I have supported the puppy mill machine but love my puppy. He was diagnosed with kennel cough, but otherwise is just perfect. I have a letter from the vet stating he was unfit for sale, which extends my warranty. Of course I will NOT return him, he is part of our family now. I hope he recovers within a short time, but I am not only caring for a puppy now, I am caring for a sick puppy who needs to sit in steam for 15 minutes three times a day, takes two meds everyday, and still needs to be trained on top of that. Needless to say, a lot of work. More than I bargained for? Yes and no...when I figured he had been living in a CAGE for two straight months without likely ever seeing the light of day or having a soft cuddly blanket to sleep on, I had to take him home...he is MY RESCUE. Next time, I will purchase from a breeder after visiting the home and meeting the parents. I thouht the store was clean, the cages were clean, and the associates were friendly and thorough. I'm sure they knew he was sick, and he had to get outta there before causing the other pups to become ill as well, if they aren't already.

Hey everyone, I have a lot of background in animal care, having a pre-veterinary bachelor??s degree and having a job as an animal care provider at an animal hospital for 4 years now. I just started working at The Pet Company in Milford, CT as an animal care tech about a month ago as a second job and what I've seen there has been atrocious.
Here is my laundry list: the whole place smells of feces and the cages have a distinct smell of ammonia. Many of the dogs have worms and kennel cough. I have a strong inclination that they come from puppy mills. The back room looks like it have never been cleaned. I cleaned out one corner of it and found months to years old dog and rabbit feces (I have no idea how rabbit feces got back there since the rabbits never see the back room). Many techs don't wash out food bowls but simply spray them down with water. Proper disinfectant is rarely used, if at all. I've been working there a month and still haven't seen a paycheck. I??ve heard from many other store associate that they have gone months without being paid. The manager, Jaime, is very weird and disappears into the bathroom for hours at a time or falls asleep at the food court or at his desk in the back room. He??s also been hours late to work.
Overall, this business is shady in both how it treats its animals and employees. Please do not buy animals from this store. Let it go out of business.

They should be shut down. The dogs are in wire cages, no beds, no blankets just a wire floor. No one should be selling dogs at this point. Go to petfinder.com and dont let the puppy mills profit off of you.

This place should not be in business..... I went to look for a puppy . Found one that the family loved . In fact we called the other store we looked and told them we liked the dog at the pet co better. Get the money, go to the store with my 11 year old son. the girl NOW TELLS ME I have to sign a waver because the dog will need a operation when she is 6 months old she says that is why the dog is so cheap (800.00). I was so upset . she called the manger and the manger said could take off 50 more dollars. I mean what kind of business practice is this . Now I have a upset family a son crying on our 45 min. ride home. THEY ARE JUST ABOUT THE MONEY DON T GIVE A DAMM ABOUT THE ANIMALS. I just hope what comes around goes around. I intend to call the better business bureau

You people need to calm down.. I can't speak for all the dogs in that store, and I do agree that they should work on improving the conditions of the cages, but what they do is have a bunch of different breeds on display for you.
If you don't like what they have, they call up a bunch of breeders and call you when your puppy arrives.
That's what we did with my German Shepherd, and he's from a breeder in Minnesota. They flew him in, we played with him, loved him, got him and his papers, and brought him home.
He had kennel cough and racked up a lot of money in bills, but the Pet Company actually covered a huge percentage of that, and he's six years old now and the most amazing dog ever.

Please be careful when buying a dog from The Pet Company in Freehold Mall! I bought my Pomeranian there 6 years ago. He was sick when i brought him home, but i can understand that. I wouldn't trade him for anything. My dog has also gone through 2 costly surgeries at about 1 yrs old and then about 6 to 8 months later. I just read about the breeder my dog came from in MO and it was a puppy mill and she was charged with Neglect / Abandonment, Unlawful Trade/Smuggling. Sounds great huh?? Also the people they have working for them are totally white trash and gross..also young kids. They neglect the dogs and there cages are always filled with urine and poop!!! I've been trying to get in touch with Corporate and they are no where to be found!!! Sounds Shady, that they dont even have a website!!!

Most of the complaints I see on here just seem like its people bashing pet stores and puppy mills and NOT at the Pet Company. I bought 2 dogs from there, Australian Cattle Dog 2.5 years ago and a Pomeranian 9 months or so ago. While it is heart breaking seeing the dogs in the cages that does not mean they are not well taken care of. Puppies will get sick, its nature, the vet that they use is still the vet I use to this day. They also always lower prices when the dogs stay there too long so they have more of a chance to find a loving home, I know of another store on rt9 in Howell that will keep the same dogs in cages and never lower the prices, some of them are even more then a year old and they had them since they were a puppy. So I give this store 5 stars after buying 2 dogs from them, 2 dogs more then almost all of the people leaving bad reviews.

I understand that sometimes they may be 'uneducated' about the puppies they are selling, but I purchased both of my dogs from here and they are excellent and healthy. One is going on 9 years old and the other one is 7. I love them soo much and I'm glad that I found them at the Pet Company. They both came with paperwork from their breeders and the parents of both dogs. They also came with all of their information I could ever want. So sure, some people don't like it and some people have bad luck with kennel cough, but it doesn't mean you should leave those dogs there just cause they came from a puppy mill. From a shelter, kennel, or puppy mill... they all want loving homes. Just think about it, it doesn't matter where you get it; it still wants someone to take it home and love it. Don't they all?

I have 1 cat from a shelter, 1 from a breeder-- and now 2 pups from the pet company. Would I recommend it? absolutely not. Do I think it is fair to give people guilt trips about it? Absolutely not.
My first puppy was extremely sick and misdiagnosed with kennel cough when I got her from the store (unfit for sale). Luckily, we got her better.
I really wanted to raise 2 together, and so I began the process of filling out forms for adoptions. 3 times I got my heart set and was unfortunately let down.
So I bought another little guy from the pet company. Dumb? Maybe. But he makes me happy, and although adoption/rescue didn't work out for me this time-- I continue to support them.
Every animal needs a home in the long run, and you have the right to want a specific breed.

I do agree that the dogs in the store need more comfortable cages in this store. But i don't understand why its a bad thing to buy from stores. if the dogs came from a bad place then you buying one would be a form of rescuing the dog. If its not healthy and your able to bring it to a vet then you are saving its life. But,i bought a dog from here and she is perfectly healthy.

I purchased my Shih-tzu from the Pet company 10 years ago. She's been extremely healthy, I know she's a pure bred and who her parents were. I definitly recommend this store. My Pandy was and is worth every single penny I spent on her.

Please do not buy your pet from a pet store. Do your research on the breed, the breeder, and make sure its parents are free of genetic defects. Buying a pet should never be an impulse decision, which sadly, this store and other pet stores encourage. I learned my lesson. I just lost my 3-year old pug to an incurable genetic disease and hope consumers don't go through the expenses and even greater sadness I went through.

I think that people who post complaints should sign their names. If it is a legitimate complaint why are they afraid, of course if it is a disgruntled employee perhaps the fact they state are not so. I myself have bought two great furbabies from this store and I have worked there for 7 years and we really care for and love our part time visitors. We could not be in business for 19 years unless we were doing something right.

We could not be in business for 19 years unless we were doing something right.

I had worked at this store as a summer job and have to say I agree with some of the responses. They do get the animals from puppy mills and some of the treatment is not so hot. The puppies are taken care of by the employees sure, people love them but management was another issue. A lot of the animals came with kennel cough and spent much of their early time in a quarantine in back. They were starved for attention and in tiny cages. I left when one dog I was found of did not get over its cough soon enough and was sent back to the mill to be put down because he was unsellable. The management was apathetic towards seemingly everything. The store was understaffed and over worked when I was there...

Still buy a puppy if you want there, but it is sad.

Yes, they are over priced but I do love my dogs that I bought from them. I traced my one dogs paper work and actually found the breeder. She told me that that was the only time she bred dogs. It was her Bichon and a friends Bichon that produced my dog. She sold the dog that I ended up buying to the pet company for $300. I bought the same dog for $1250. (ouch!) But like I said "I have 2 fantastic dogs." I have tried to deal with breeders directly and I have lost a total of $300 that was a deposit. They expect a deposit on dogs that haven't even been born or just to come and see them. If you change your mind, too bad.

Alexa M. if you want to spend the money, go ahead. I just don't recommend it since 99% of dogs in these mall pet stores come from puppy mills. Please don't think that if you don't buy these dogs they will be homeless and overcrowd the streets and shelters... If people like you didn't buy these dogs then the puppy mills wouldn't be making any money and they would have no reason to keep "breeding stock" dogs who live their entire lives in cages and are continually bred for years, without human companionship and with little hope of ever becoming part of a family.

Go ahead and buy a cute little dog from these stores. Just remember where they came from and what you're supporting.

There's nothing WRONG with buying an animal from a pet store! If they weren't in the pet stores, they'd be strays, ending up in shelters, which would overcrowd shelters, and even more animals would die. This store is a nice store, they always have good looking animals for sale. I have bought TWO of my puppies here, and they were both healthy, strong beautiful dogs. Best investment I have ever made in my life.

Not my favorite store. I don't shop in any store that sells animals especially dogs and cats that you know came from puppy mills. Why pay 1,500 for a dog when there are so many in rescue.

I'm sick of people being stupid enough to buy a dog from a store where you never see the animals parents, you never meet the breeder, or see the animals living quarters. I thought people were smarter then to trust a money hungry business. Pet company is a horrible store, and they're uneducated, and dirty.
