The Petco website isn't the nicest. It's definitely not my go-to when I shop online for my dog. I don't think the selection is as good as in person too.
They always have great things for my dog! Customer service is great and they ship to my house quickly after I order.
Delivery of my order was quick, ordering was easy, and all the products were easy to find on the website!
Large store. At times it is hard to find what I needed. Not alot of staff to help out. They seem over burdened with to much holiday shoppers. Overall, store seems a bit pricey as well.
I have purchased fish products for my tropical fishtank online from Petco. It is quick and easy to check out and the shipping was fast!
Love using Petco website has everything you need for your pet and also even has a pharmacy option to buy medication for your pet another great feature they have is a 24/7 help line in case you need help from experts.
Petco is always one of my go to stores for pet food. I have found them to be well informed and always willing to answer questions that I might have regarding my cat.
Petco is a great way for animal owners to provide for their pet needs. They have everything from food, to hygiene, to bedding for these animals. They are also very friendly and kind to their customers. Their online service helps you get an idea of what you are to expect in the store and it helps a lot!
Petco has a great variety of products for pets and is very helpful when we are looking for products for our pets.
When I was a little kid we got our first dog from a rescue agency that worked with petco, so I have always gone where to get pet supplies. The online tools are a great help is getting what we need when we need it. Always an easy experience.
Good selection, prices ok. Sometimes really great product info is available, especially on food.
This is where I get all the supplies for my cats. They actually had really tall cat trees and I got two of them. Great company!
Great place for animal supplies. Been around for awhile and will still go to Petco for needed products.
Decent selection with fair enough prices. shipping was reasonable. Would shop again.
the staff was very friendly with my kids. They were helpful and answered my questions.
This is a great pet store! They always are having sales and have everything I need for my two little pups!
great dog food. great price. I come here when I am in town. There isn't one very close to me
Very pricey compared to amazon but has anything you could need to care for your pet.
Great place to find stuff for our cat and dogs. They are always so friendly to our pets when we bring them in.
When something is in stock online, and we go to the store to just buy it there, they don't have it! If you order it online, it goes to a shipping order to the store and you get to wait for it. Also prices seem a little higher or lower and never actually match store prices, not sure what that is about...
I hate to leave 1 star. I guess the 1 is for the girl who cut my dogs toenails. The worst grooming manager in this dept. I had issue with him last time when I made an appt with him for grooming. I brought my dog at the correct time when this grooming manager said he couldn't groom my dog maybe for the entire day even though I had an appt. At that time the store manager was good. The manager talked with the grooming manager about the appt issue and it was corrected to my satisfaction. I have now been taking my dog in only for toenail cuts and anal openings. I had paid 10.00 for these treatments over 3 visits. Today I went in and found this awful grooming manager. He said I would need to pay double this. That there were notes in the system about my behavior. I just couldn't believe it. Then he refused to take my dog even though my dog was hurting with a broken toenail. He escorted my dog out. Unbelievable!! I then talked to the store manager who was no help like the previous store manager had been. I finally asked the store manager if they could just cut my dog's toenails since she was hurting. I got them to cut the toenails, but if Petco ever sees my face again, it will just not happen. Petco is keeping a File on you and can make up anything they want. What a way to deface a customer !! Store manager was just not a good store manager. He had no authority !!
The first time I had to call to complain about receiving canned cat food that was expired, I was refunded. The second time I noticed that our next delivery was also expired I attempted to contact the same girl who had given me her email address previously, and after 13 days have gotten no response. So I feel the need to let others know to look closely at the expiration dates on any food you might purchase from Petco. Very sad. I have dropped my repeat orders from this company and will be purchasing our pet food elsewhere now.
Petco is a great place to shop if you need just basic things for your pet. Prices are reasonable
They have a good selection of items for pets. They are also full of information to pet owners and how to do certain things. They are easy to use and ordering and shipping is easy as well.
I attended the dog training with my puppy Bane at the classes in Salt Lake City. My dog worked with their trainer who was a great coach. Having a Weimaraner, it's not easy to train this specific breed because of their crazy behavior. However, our dog did great in learning the basic commands & being trained in a positive well. Highly recommend these dog training classes at Petco!
I tried to purchase prescription dog food for my son’s dog. I frequently watch the dog when my son travels for work. I sent Petco the script the vet provided. Because the address on the script (son’s address) did not match the delivery address (my address), Petco refused to process the order. How ridiculous is that. I have no problems picking up my son’s prescriptions or my mom’s prescriptions at CVS. BUT I CANNOT GET DOG FOOD. Corine at customer service could not help me. I guess the dog will have to do without his prescribed food.
There is nothing wrong whatsoever with the store, however one employee, Denise, is nothing but rude to us when we come in for crickets. She huffs when we ask for specific amounts, she will go help other customers after being asked to get crikets making us wait for the crickets and then shakes them around while she brings them up. Every other employee is very nice but Denise is rude and it's getting really old. We are regular customers at the store and she makes the visit very annoying l.
Petco has been my go to online pet store. I used to go into the physical store because it's fairly close and they had everything I need but using the online store is just as effective and much more convenient.
Petco store # 1766 in jacksonville fl has the best Aquatics people. Kaitlyn is very best. I have 4 kids and an husband that love shrimp. We went in today for mother's day to buy some females guppy. And Kaitlyn was very patient and helpful. I husband was asking all kinds of question because he has shrimp and doesn't want them eaten. Kaitlyn helped us get some wood for our shrimp and my guppy even through my kids were being loud. Lol but Kaitlyn handle it like an pro. She was caring, kind and very sweet to my kids. And had all the answer to my husband question. We were very pleased and happy. She need an raise. Kaitlyn is awesome. Sorry if I missed spelled her name. But really wonderful job. Thank you
Good place to get pet supplies. They always have the most helpful staff.
Good site to use to compare prices and availability before going into the store
Got a lot of stuff here for my dog but found the prices to be a little pricier than other places. Great service and awesome store, but not the cheapest.
This grooming salon is a DANGER to your pets. On 3 occasions I have not been contacted for hours that my pet was ready for pickup. My dog was in the kennel for that period of time (3 hours) when he could be out and about at home. My most recent event with this salon was for a simple bath. I checked that my number was correct and told the groomer I would have my cell with me for a quick pickup. After multiple hours I contacted the store. After a bit of shuffling they said my pet had been ready for a while. I asked why no phone call. The girl stated that they had called my cell and it went to voicemail. Interesting because there was no incoming call and my voicemails are transcribed as well as recorded. I asked who called and they couldn't tell me. I told her I would address this when I came to the store, if she could find out who called. Upon my arrival the groomer handed me the receipt for payment. I again questioned who called me as I didn't receive a call. The groomer Jordan had no clue what I was talking about. I went to pay and discuss this with the store manager. While I was waiting to pay Jordan came out with my dog and told me in fact no one called and he should have. I first asked why someone would lie to me on the phone saying that they had called when they hadn't. I attempted to explain that this was the third episode (and final one) of this occurring. Jordan just looked off into the distance and was not paying attention to me so I told him I would speak with the manager. Speaking with the manager was also a worthless effort. Rather than taking a moment to acknowledge a system problem that was brought to his attention he kept asking me if I was signed up for text messaging. Yes I was but my question here is why are you throwing this back on me even if I wasn't. If they didn't CALL ME do you think they were going to TEXT ME? I couldn't get him off this train of thought. At any rate he said he would look into it and call me back. No call backs in 2 days. I spoke with corporate customer service line. They took the information and said they would turn it over to the store manager. I told them I spoke with him and he didn't get that he had a problem. They then assured me that they were interested and would have the district manager call me Monday. When best? Anytime. Guess what...you guessed it. No call from anyone at Petco. For a company that claims they care they have yet to prove that to me. Petco let me ask you this question? In the past few weeks one of your competitors was in national news. Not for their good service or goodness to pets. For pet deaths and injury. You may be headed down the same path leaving animals in kennels for prolonged periods of time. Those of us who try to inform you of problems are just ignored.
Great place to find stuff for your 4 legged friend.
I buy a lot of pet stuff and Petco and always find great stuff. I also love how they are always doing adoption Saturdays because it gives people a chance to save animals. They are a part of a great cause and they have great products. Love their employees as well.
Always have a good experience going to Petco. Their staff is really helpful, and I can tell they treat all of their animals good. However, their items are pretty expensive, so I always have to check other places before I go there because a lot of times they don't have the lowest prices. Overall, a good shopping experience if you can find their reasonably priced items.
I always find greats deal here! Customer service is always nice and friendly
The adoption group that facilitates at their Round Rock location located in Texas. My son adopted a precious kitten back on Xmas Eve 2017. It was obvious he was sick in some kind of way. He was sneezing and stuff would come out of his nose and mouth. And then just well later they were told he had a deathly diesase and would have to be put down. His name was SchoolBoy. A little tiger stripped bundle of joy. He passed away from this diesase on Valentine's day this year. It was horrible.. one of the hardest things I have had to endure. My point is, is that I don't feel this adoption group are telling the truth. I think they are getting the money from this adoptions and are knowing adopting out sick animals. I have made contact with them. They offered to refund half of what my son paid to adopt SchoolBoy. It's not about the money, it's about a little kittens life, and other animals lives. They claim to not keep records. Vet records and adoption records. Well I have never heard of that in my life. I think they should be investagted. I am sure the IRS and pet groups would be interested in knowing where the money from contributions and donations are going. Makes me wonder....so sad in KC. We love and miss that little boy ..???
Went in to petco in Jackson Heights to buy a dog clipper, found one I liked and asked the male clerk to get one from the case. It took him 10 minutes to find the key so he could open the case. After he finally was able to open the case I reached for the clipper, he said no u can’t have it. My comment was “do you think I will steal it” he said yes and stormed away. I’m a 60 year old male and got quite disturbed from the comment of this clerk. Luckily there is Amazon where I can buy my pet food in the future.
The managers dont care about their employees. Petco is possibly the worst place to work for. I am a veteran and decided to help out my local petco saltwater section. I did all I could and turned the whole fish section around. I was employee of the month and never got a bad mark for the year that I worked there. One day a cat tree goes on sale and a bunch of customers buy one. I ask my manager if it's ok to buy one, she said yes. Our GM at the store didn't care about his employees at all, because he received any email stating that employees are not allowed to buy the cat tree, but failed to tell a single other manager or employee. I ended up getting fired because of this and Los prevention is charging me $500 for the cat tree. I'm so glad Petco treats ours veterans like this.
Number one, they will charge you 2 times what you would pay buying the exact name brand items as you would ordering it from site like amazon. Example: API Stress Zyme plus 16oz bottle is $14.69 from Petco. The exact same thing on amazon cost $11.39. That’s just that one item. Everything is priced like this. Second: they have phone numbers on their own websight that are for customer service. I had to search the internet for half an hour and call four different numbers till I finally got through to a real working number. The first three numbers would ring, have a machine or recording say they have to redirect you, and once it does, you get nothing but a busy sound. I called all three numbers several times each. After I finally got through to a real number, I was on hold for 30 minutes. The reason for my call was to cancel my order I placed on a Monday night around 8pm. By 9pm I was able to finally talk to someone. I explained I ordered freshwater shrimp for my aquarium, but realized I still needed to buy some other products before getting the shrimp. He said he would try to cancel it but I waited to long to call in and he may not be able to cancel the order. He asked me to wait on hold again, and I said ok. He got back to me in a few minutes saying they were sold to me by a third party, even though I bought them from petco’s website. He also said it was already sent to the warehouse and he would have to put me on hold so he can put in for a cancellation hoping it goes through. After twenty five minutes of waiting and hearing him take other calls, he heard me getting upset and all the sudden was back on the phone saying he was done. He asked if that was it and I said no. I asked how I would know if it is canceled or not. The line went silent for a second, so I said by email, phone call, and he said email. When all said and done I spent 1 hour and 45 minutes trying to cancel an the 8 minute spent ordering four shrimp and a koi swordtail fish. Third, I payed for a next day air on this order which cost more than the shrimp did. So the next day I check hoping they got my order canceled, and surprise, no email saying sorry, we got your cancellation order to late to stop it. Nothing even saying I tried to cancel my order was sent to my email. But I did have a UPS email stating they got my package sometime around 11am, saying it would be here on the next day. That would be a Wednesday since Tuesday was the day I got the email stating it would be here on 12/6/17. So seeing they never canceled my order. I got a small aquarium out, put in water, an air pump and stone, and a water heater so while I was at work my family could put them in that tank till I got home. I also got ready early and went to Petco before work, a forty five minute drive, so I could buy all the items needed to take care of the shrimp. They never showed up. Now coming to the forth problem, the next day air lie. If your like me, you believe next day air means exactly what it says. So today I call the same number I did when I so called tried to cancel my order. Once again on hold waiting for 23 minutes for customer service. Same guy answered but tried to act like it was his associate who spoke to me on Monday. I explained what was going on and said I would like my money back that I paid for” next day air.” I had to explain I still did not have my order and was only calling for a refund for my shipping charge. After several more minutes explaining what I want, he finally put me on hold. After only three minutes he gets back to me saying that the order was still considered under the next day air shipping rights. I asked how an order made Monday night, A UPS email on Tuesday at 11:52am stating it would be here on Wednesday, and now being Thursday at 1:30pm was still next day air. Then I said f-it, keep my money but it will be the last you get from me and I’ll be posting everything on there reviews, and hung up. When I receive my order I will be posting that info to as I’m sure they are dead.
I placed an order in Petco for 3 positions, one of them was prescription food. I received my order after 3 working days but without prescription food. Inside the package was information that second part will be delivered later. To the next day, I contacted customer service and they wrote me that part of my order was delayed because they couldn't contact a clinic. Nobody has contacted me although I left my phone and email! I sent the prescription to Petco email and operator in customer service wrote me that order will be shipped during 24hours. When delivery date appeared in my account I stayed at home whole day, but I didn't receive my order. When I checked information in my account status of delivery was "Attempt - Lock Out / No Access" and date of delivery was changed on tomorrow. I want to notice that I had other deliveries that day and have not any problems with them. I was at home the next day all day but I have not received my order again. Status of my order was changed on "Delivered to Sender". I have waited two days and I have received nothing! My order was not delivered after 6 working days! I canceled my repeated delivery and placed it in another shop. I will recommend this shop nobody!
Santa Fe Petco Groomers are great, Venus did a great job on our dogs Kratos N Ali, and Blake was awesome for helping me get my dogs out to our car. Thank you guys!!! Appreciate you!!
*** PETCO FALSE/ERROR ADVERTISEMENT ** Encouraging you to read the visitors posts that were left on Petco's page for false advertising sale items. On Sunday, July 16, 2017, Petco had an online sale with some items that were discounted up to 99% off (they were listed with the discounted prices on petco.com all day Sunday), so a lot of us did the obvious and grabbed those deals. After chatting with some of people, I found out that some of us called to confirm the price/transactions and Petco said the transactions look good, and they would be sent once they receive them. Well without notice Sunday night and through out the day Monday they cancelled orders, they did this little by little without posting anything on Petco FB page, stating what happened and what they were going to do about it, or at least just say, "apologize it's an error and we are going to refund your money." But no, instead we just had to wait to see if we did or didn't get ours cancelled, because some people did get their selected items on Monday morning. Now personally speaking, I understand that it was an error and they changed their mindset in not honoring price listed, but at this point, I'm just posting this to bring awareness as to how unprofessional Petco has been with us. We have received different answers, some people were still able to get the price and the rest of us our transactions were cancelled, or others went to the store to find out if they would or wouldn't honor the price match. Some people were offered a different discount % and others were told if they wanted the item they had to pay full price. And the list can go on n on, so you are more than welcome to take a moment and read some of the posts that begin on Sunday. **As of today Petco has not posted a notice to provide us any information in regards to this issue, and to the date some people have not been refunded on their credit card transactions, and customer service is very rude. I'm pretty sure Petco lost a lot of customers... you should have been more open with us and admitted your wrongdoings, and not keep us hanging... https://www.facebook.com/Petco/posts_to_page/
I live close to a Petco and really like the huge selection of toys and treats they have. I am kind of a nerd, and really loved their Star Wars dog items they have had in the last couple of years. I bought my dog a chewbacca toy that he loves and a Kylo Ren rope toy that has lasted a long time (with a dog who destroys everything). I will definitely continue to shop with them and recommend other people to use them as well.
Petco offers a wide range of product for whatever animal you have at a low affordable price. They're always the first place I go to fill all my pet needs or spend a day looking at the animals.
We live close to a Petco and a Petsmart and have gone to both for our dog and cat needs. I like Petco for their cool items they get in. We bought my daughter some Star Wars dog stuff for her puppy last year and she just went nuts. I think the food is overpriced though.
Petco is a pretty nice pet store. The people who work there are always very friendly and knowledgeable. I'd say their stuff is a bit expensive, but high quality for the most part. We did have one incident like ten years ago. We bought our son a pet rat from there. This Petco only carried female rats. A few days later the rat had 12 babies. We were not prepared for this at all.
They have some really good products but I just don't feel like they have enough variety/in stock (in store).
I don't have a pet, and my situation doesn't allow me to, however I love to bring my little ones to pet stores to look and experience animals. We aren't annoying and mostly look, but some pet stores are rude and grumpy to us. Petco has always been kind and encouraging to us to take our time and enjoy looking at animals. Thanks!
