.

we bought a dog from petland in chillicothe. they told me that any herretitary desease was covered 100% at the age of 1 year and 1 month he was diagnosed with hip displasia SPELLING. they said they will cover vet bills to the purchase price nothing more and the vet they use dont even do the surgery and thats the only vet they will pay for. hip replacement the vet said was about $2200 per hip this has been about six months so we have to have him put down because its unfair to him to have to suffer for the rest of his life and we dont have $4400 to pay for the surgery

This store encourages you to take a loan for a pet you can't afford and encourages students (I am one) to sneak them into the dorms! When I asked to see papers on a particular dog, they were unable to produce them at first and on a second visit then showed me one and the dog was shipped from Wisconsin. The pups might be healthy when you see them but the problem is the parents of the pups are living in cages for the rest of their lives as long as people pay for their offspring and products. I've spoken to the dog shelter and at the end of the school year they see numerous dogs dropped off who are purebred dogs from this store. I found it overbearing and obnoxious there and their prices are sky high for dogs and products. Find a good breeder - don't support this or other pet stores unless you visit where the puppies are actually from and see the conditions the parents and pups are living in. Purchasing from substandard breeders keeps them in business and dogs in misery.

Petland Athens is a wonderful place! I am sure if you actually talked to the manager she would be more then willing to help you. I think people just jump to conclusions without actually giving Petland a chance. I know this Petland in Athens OHIO is a wonderful Petland and I have bought 4 puppies from there and I have not had an ounce of problems.

They are so excited to sell you a dog which is great. But, BEWARE PETLAND'S warranty is FALSE. They do not stand up to their warranty. We are currently trying to get our money back or even get a vet bill paid for . Our puppy @ 5months diagnosed by vet Demodectic Mange which is hereditary. Now is suffering from secondary diseases due to mange. My children can't even play with her, but we love her very much. In Petlands warranty they give you , says warranty covers any herediatry or congenital diseases that will affect their lifetime. We go to Petland to choose from variety of breeds and the privilege of warranty. This message to alert anyone so they don't have to go thru what we are...

Petland in Athens Ohio is fantastic. The people working their are kind and friendly. The animals are all healthy. The store is NOT a corporate store, but privately owned. All of their dogs are from breeders, NOT puppy mills. Not only do they check the dog with their vets, but you then have to take it to your own. As for congenital problems that show up typically in teh first 2 years, there is a three year "warranty" --any problems, they will pay for them.

I'm amazed that the person who worked there worked less than a day and managed to glean all that information as to the "inner workings." Probably works for the pet store across the street. Did you ever think if one of the dogs was ill, they were giving it medicine to treat it? And I doubt, with the warranty, that they would purposefully sell a sick dog. Not only is it illegal, but it is counterproductive to continued good business.

Petland uses awful practices, and treats their animals very poorly. I had heard all the rumors and read all of the sensational articles, but I didn't believe it until I got a job there myself. I could only bare working a day before I had to quit; when I saw everything from the insiders perspective.

All of the puppies are sick, and sometimes dying. They get antibiotics, cough syrup, and other medicines every single day so they don't appear to be sick when you are playing with them. Almost all have Kennel Cough, and many carry other diseases. The dogs are brought on huge trucks in tiny little cages from puppy mills. Employees are trained to do everything possible to sell, sell, sell. They will follow you around the store, try to make you think you need ten times as much stuff as you really do, and rip you off in the mean time.

If you are looking for high quality food and grooming - go to Friendly Paw's just across the street. This personal small business offers personal attention, and quality service. While I hate to say it, I would even support Wal Mart over Petland!.
