I've been to many different pet stores for my dogs and this has to be the worst. Filthy beyond belief, Very mean manager and prices were high. Wayne Pet Place and Mike's in Riverdale are the 2 worst in the state. FYI, the best are Animal House in Butler and Rusty's Place in Ringwood.

I don't know where they get the puppies from, could be a reputable breeder or a puppy mill, but more importantly, knowing how many shelter dogs need homes, why sell puppies? I went in last night to buy cat food, but when I saw that they sold puppies, I walked out and went to Petco. I always choose to patronize local merchants, but at least Petco does alot for rescue groups locally, and through their foundation nationally. And they don't sell puppies!!

For the life of me I cannot understand why ANYONE would purchase a dog from a pet store....Ask the manager where the puppies come from..."Private Breeder". BULL! They come from PUPPY MILLS!!! They will NOT provide you with the name or address of the breeder. I KNOW private breeders. They DO NOT sell to pet stores. They INTERVIEW potential owners of their dogs to make sure it is a good placement. Puppies that are sold in pet stores come from parents that live in rabbit hutches OUTSIDE regardless of the weather. They are NEVER allowed out of their cages for exercise and barely get food and water. They receive no vet care and are discarded like garbage. Google "Puppy Mills" or go to "Youtube" and put in "puppy mills". You will not be able to sleep after seeing what is going on! Please...do not support Pet Stores that sell PUPPIES.....

How is this place still in business? It is dirty and the owner is rude and disrespectful to customers. I had a very bad expierence here and do not recommend this pet store to anyone.

I used to hate going to this store before. i went today and i noticed so many improvements. the animals are very well kept the staff was very friendly and offered me a lot of information. yes, the puppies are pricey but you can tell they aren't from puppy mills and i heard one of the girls say they have a three year guarantee. the prices on other stuff was really good and the owner told me he was lowering alot of the prices. good experience overall very shocked with the difference on how it used to be

This store is an absolute joke. They sell puppies for $800-$2200 (for French Bulldogs). Yes, you read that right. $2200. But once you buy one of their dogs don't expect to bring it into the store unless it's being carried. No dogs are allowed to walk on the precious Pet Place floor. After all, it might get eaten by one of the ferocious miniature pinschers they keep behind the counter that seem to have a taste for blood. Bottom line--this guy is exploiting animals and overcharging people for puppies that they should be adopting from their local animal shelter. Not to mention he is rude and nasty and on more than one occasion I have seen him chase people out of his store. Go to Mike's Feed Farm or some other local pet place. Do not waste your money in this store.

Disrespectful rude owner. Does not stand behind his product. Purchased dog harness. Sales person, male, took my money and ripped the tag off the harness. Returned two days later to return harness, did not realize had same one at home. Would not make an exchange because no tag on harness!! His employee fault, not mine. STAY away from this place.

I recently had a bad experience at The Wayne Pet Place -- my dog had been diagnosed with cancer and I would pick up supplies at this store. I have in the last 11 months spent well over $400.00 --when it came time to put my precious pet to sleep I had some items that needed to be returned. Packages were unopened and I had proof of purchase through my Amex card. The person behind the counter notified the owner which whom I have met before and they will only give a store credit. I explained I no longer have any pets in my home and wanted the credit applied to my card. I rude salesperson who works there in which I was not even speaking with told me that "They just about had enough of me" Well my friend you definitely have not seen the last of me -- try hiring some compassionate people to work at your store -- and revise your return policy. I have been in the service industry for over 20 years -- if I had spoken to a customer with such disrespect I would have been fired!

They do have a nice enough selection of pet food. The selection of pet supplies is good too.
They are good on some days with upkeep of animal husbandry and some days poor (make excuses that he high school kid hasn't come yet to GIVE them WATER). It's been awhile since I 've been in there. They do sell puppy mill dogs, so you get what you pay for. (This is where all petstore pups come from, nowhere else, if anyone tells you otherwise they are lying). I beleive it's a small business (not a big corporate business like Petco) so if you truely see a problem with the way an animal is kept tell the manager. He has more interest in correcting the situation than a Petco/Petsmart employee.
They seemed to have a nice selction of reptiles and kept well.

Honestly I don't know how this place hasn't been shut down!!! The people are just plain rude. Most of the time when I go in there the small animals are half dead and no one is helpful. I stood at the counter last time I was in there for about 10 minutes waiting for the woman to get off her cell phone and ring me up. Their fish tanks are always a mess. Don't waste your time!

Shopping isn't always fun but this place really tries to make it a pleasant experience. The store is very well stocked with pet items, probably will find something you need that you didn't know you needed for your pet. The shelves are much cleaner than many of the competitors and the staff is ready to bend over backwards to help you while being pleasant on top of it.
Nice experience

The Wayne Pet Place has it all. The best selection, the best prices, the best quality. The only downside is that the staff is usually a little on the inexperienced side. Even so it is far and away the best pet shop in the area.
