I am unsure why there are so many bad reviews for Clarks and the owner. Go into any Petsmart or Petco and there isn't a person in sight to help you. After seeking out an employee at one of these places they can't tell you the difference between Science diet and Iams let alone if they even carry those brands. LARRY may not specialize in people, but he certainly does specialize in retaining holistic knowledge about the dietary needs of dogs and the living environments of fish and he is passionate about it at that. He obviously studies the topics regularly and is quite intelligent. I am so happy I finally met someone who could distinguish between good and bad dog food, and the FDA regulations on dog food labeling so I could get our Great Dane on a grain free food once and for all. He was also able to help us decide against getting our daughter a gold fish since they pee more than any other fish and so should not be kept in a bowl. I am so grateful for the time he spends making sure his animals and ours, are happy and healthy. They also ALWAYS help me carry my bags out and that is something I didn't even get at WFC. Thank you Larry for being on the side of our pets.

I'm certainly not a mental health professional but it doesn't take one to see that the owner of this place is not a well man. The way he was talking to someone about how and what to feed their dog was just sad. Then I asked a question about a food I feed I didn't see on his shelves and he just came unglued. It was just a question and the food has been doing fine by my dog for several years now. I left there more than a little upset by the way he spoke to me. It was just a question.

I have been a customer of Clarks since i was able to make a dollar. Their expertise in fish and pet foods and supplies is unyielding. anyone who has had a bad experience with this establishment more than likely instigated a comfrontaion

i only give them a 4 star review because they are knowledgable and helpful but the owner has a real condescending way with words. if the service was more polite theyd get 5 stars from me but until the owner takes some customer service etiqutte classes im sticking to my 4. see i am a new 55 gallon tank owner and i had alot of ignorant questions because i am new to fish, but i am a willing and ready student...i just dont think he was very polite, almost acted as if he was frustrated with my questions which is understandable because im sure hes a near genius when it comes to fish and pet products but he could have had more patience with my questions, im just trying to do things correctly and safely for my fish.

Best pet store in town. I would never shop anywhere else. The staff is very helpful and very well informed and up to date on pet foods and fish care.

I Bought some saltwater fish from Clarks. These actual fish had been at Clarks for nearly a year. I talked to the staff about them, what specific food they are eating, what brand etc. I have had fish since I was a kid and have had saltwater for over 17 years so I am NOT a newbie. When I got the fish home after drip acclimating them and giving them some time to settle in, I tried to feed them- no luck with the male. the next day I tried again, still no luck. I called Clarks and asked if they had any ideas or suggestions, I was then told by the sales person that the fish had been "lost int the tank for nearly 3 weeks!" What??? You sold a fish to someone that you couldn't find for 3 weeks? I asked for the name of the distributor they order the fish from. The Distributor was SHOCKED that they not only told me the wrong food but that it had been lost and they still sold it without knowing if it was healthy or eating. The fish that I spent $180 on died with no refund, store credit or even an apology. I know stores don't usually refund Saltwater fish but at least at Petco when I have had a problem they did rectify it. Customer Service at Clarks stinks, they act like they are doing you a favor by letting you shop there. I will never go back I will either special order from Petco or drive to Seattle for my fish. I don't understand how they stay in business, their prices are high and they stink at customer service.

Someone referred to to Clarks Feed and Seed to get some fish. I took the advice and went there hoping to get some fish along with some good service. I must say, they do have a great selection of fish, however their customer service is horrible. It took me probably 20 minutes to have a worker help me, and when they did help me, it wasn't very helpful. They seemed like they didn't want to be working. I bought some fish and some fish food that the clerk suggested. Two of my fish died within 48 hours of bringing them home, and they gave me the wrong fish food. When I went back to return the fish food and ask if they could give me a new fish since they gave me a sick one, the owner Larry was completely rude. He told me he wouldn't reimburse me for the fish, and told me that since I already opened the food that I could not return it. Even though they clearly gave me a sick and dying fish, and told me to buy the wrong fish food. It was some of the worst customer service ever.

The folks at Clark's Feed & Seed are always helpful when I shop for cat food. I buy Wellness cat food by the case and Travis always makes sure they have a case of the flavor that I buy. Everyone is the store is cheerful and willing to help any way they can, including carrying my purchases to my car for me.

I found the folks at Clark's to be very friendly and helpful. Travis greets me by name when I come in and this is just after a few months of buying cat food there.

This is the only fish store in Bellingham in my opinion. They are EXTREAMLY knowledgeable and very friendly. They also allow you to do free water testing anytime you have something wrong with your tank and they so free water tests on Wednesdays. I love this store!! They have very healthy fish too unlike many other pet stores. GO to Clarks and support your local businesses.

I went to Clark Feed and Seed in hopes of 'buying local' and 'helping the small business'' as many people brag about doing, but I was shocked that a small business could be so... horrible.
I have a great dane named Brutus who has been itching for as long as I've had him (about two years now) and was informed by the owner of the store (as well as an employee who whoheartedly agreed with him) that I was feeding my 140 lb dog WAY too much food. When I asked him how much I should be feeding my dog (because I was following the directions on the bag of food), and I was appalled. ONE CUP of food per day. Noone in their right mind could think that a 140 lb dog only needs a single cup of food a day. I had a talk with my vet, who rightout laughed at the man's suggestion and said he's heard that story before. The difference between what happened to me and what happened to them? THEY LISTENED!!! They were completely suayed by the man's suggestion and the vet told me he had to tell the owners that he would have to call the cops for animal neglect when the dog came in for it's visit. After my half-an-hour long disscusion with my vet, I've made the (fairly easy) decision to NEVER shop there again, let alone take that man's advice.

When the people at Clark Feed and Seed don't completely ignore you, they are very pushy. They try to coerce you into purchasing products and are very rude when you ask questions. Additionally, they gave horrible advice that ended up making my dog ill. In an effort to "buy local," I decided to give them another try even though my vet suggested I shop somewhere else. Tonight, I showed up 15 minutes prior to their closing. They had already pulled all merchandise in from the sidewalk and stacked it in all aisles in the store. I asked one of the clerks if they were open and they said "sort of - if you can reach it." In order to get a bag of dog food, I had to move several large dog crates and then climb over multiple scratching posts. Nobody offered to help. I then asked if I could purchase some bully sticks from them. They informed me that they couldn't be reached because they would have to move some fish tanks and that was too big of a bother. They told me to come back other day! The people who work here are rude, arrogant, pushy, and unknowledgable. I will shop online and drive to Petsmart before I ever return to Clark Feed & Seed. Don't shop here if you value your time and love your pet!

I will never go to Clark's Feed and Seed again. We purchased some fish pellets following one of the staff's recommendation. As it turns out the pellets were too large for our fish to consume. Since it was open, I returned to the store and asked the owner, Larry Oltmann, if we could get partial credit towards a smaller pellet. If he would have said no, I would have gladly accepted that. Instead he returned my money and told me to NEVER come into his store again. This was very upsetting and unfortunate.

I LOVE hamster and I really want to take care of them. SO I went to Clarks and bought another cage for my hamsters. (Also, they have GREAT prices.) I got home and put it together. I noticed that it hadn't come with a drikning bottle. So, I went back told them what happened. And they gave me a water bottle for my hamster. I also bought some bedding, and they gave me advice about the bedding.

Soon, I'm going back and buying another cage to connect to the other one. I'm sure I will have a great experience. Thank you Clark Feed and Seed! Your great!

I'm not sure what REALLY happened for another bad review I read, but the owner has been very kind and helpful with all sorts of aquarium problems I've had - all of course of my own creation. I have had aquariums for 20 years and know my stuff, but their staff are the best in town and really know what they're talking about. I have learned new things from them that have made my aquariums more stable. I get frustrated with customers I see in their store, when the staff are patient and helpful.
These people are killing pet fish because they're not listening!
I have tried Petsmart and Petco and they don't know what they're talking about much of the time or just don't care. 3 of the 5 fish I've gotten from other places have died within a week and I have perfect tanks
I will ALWAYS shop at Clark and am happy to have this WONDERFUL store.

Larry Oltmann the owner is extremely rude and has no sense of customer service. When I returned an item that was recommended by one of their employees he insisted that his employee would not have recommended the product and then told me I was not a responsible customer and refused to sell me anymore products. So much for customer relations!

Shop locally at Hohl's Pet store next door to Clark's or the Pet Stop in Sehome Village, but don't waste your time at Clark's.

Clark's feed and seed is a great store offering specialty pet food, toys and fish galore. It is a great place to go for a fish tank, turtle or just to find out why your guppies are dying. They offer great advice for fish tanks, dog and cat food and more. They also do free water testing on Wednesdays where you can bring in a sample of your tanks water and they will tell you what you are doing right or wrong. They know what they are talking about and have a great selection of fresh and saltwater fish for your tank!
