Petco: what do users think?


Allison Guy: This Petco might be good for other things, but the conditions their birds are kept in are nightmarish. The parakeets do not have adequate perches of different sizes, any chewing toys, and they are fed on a cheap, unhealthy all-seed diet. I also watched as a woman pried open one of the plexiglass doors and let a budgie escape. As for the parrots, well, have a look at the photo — a tiny enclosure with no opportunity to climb, chew, fly or have social interaction. Same unhealthy seed diet, water bowls full of droppings. Their heads were full of painful pin feathers because they had no bird or human companion to groom them. Imagine sitting on the same perch in a glass box all day with nothing to do, for weeks and months on end. This is absolute torture for such a smart, social animal.

carolyn jackson: My son and I love, love, love this store. We are here every week doing a fish tank water sample test. The manager Donnell in the fish dept. Is very nice, helpful. knowledgeable, and professional. He and the staff are always ready to help you in any way. It a fun store to shop.

Dani Rios: We casually visited this store and left with the best impression. The nice cashier seemed sincerely interested in learning about our puppy and gave us some great tips about the excessive chewing. We regret not asking her name, she was a nice African American lady. Thank you!

Sarah Levine: I did a puppy training class with Jen and she is an excellent trainer. She understands dog behavior and how to use positive training to get results. My puppy started off hating going into the store and by the end she was dragging me in because she was so excited to go to class. I highly recommend taking training classes with Jen.

Courtney: Jill was so helpful and informative—just got a puppy and she helped us find the right cleaning spray for accidents in the house. The store was clean and organized. Will be coming to this Petco in DC from now on!

Wayne HarRell: I would give this location 4 stars. Clean out the dead fish in the tanks. But, the employee who helped me deserves 5 Stars! Miguel was great! He was eager, enthusiastic and knowledgeable! He went out of his way to help with my purchase AND it was 15 minutes before closing! Thanks Miguel!

Michael Johnson: It was a big store and had all pet goods and the sales people are nice

Brian Diem: Shop here all the time for our kitty. The cashier lady is always friendly and making sure we take advantage of all the coupons available. She definitely cares about us and it shows!

Catherine Carter: Some gaps in inventory. I did, though, find what I sought and so much more. The staff is friendly, knowledgable.

Summer Bryant Campell: Mr. Darnell was very knowledgeable and compassionate about the proper living space, food and bedding for the newest addition to our family our guinea pig. You can tell he loves animals and wants the very best for them. Ms. Alexis, who was at the register when we bought our guinea, gave her a check once over and reminded us to check our guinea’s ears, nails and reminded us of possible bald patches that can be caused by ring worm and / or mites. She was also very caring and showed our guinea lots of love. The professionalism, and customer we experience each time we shop at this Petco keeps us coming back.

Sandi G in DC: 😔I am sorry to report that this location has closed.The Staff was awesome caring and knowledgeable.I hope they landed well...Alas...my kitty and I need a new spot! Onward to Tony and crew down on 7th St. NW 😉🐺🐈

Julio Garcia: Best pet store ever!! Customer services is top notch!

Arabella Van Patten: Be careful!!! I got scammed here. Paid in exact change because their “cash register wasn’t working”. They didn’t give me a receipt because their “system was down”. Next time I went in the person working demanded I give them $20, while I know I paid in exact change. I didn’t want to argue about it due to some medical conditions I have and I was confused so I just gave them the money and left. Thinking about it now I know I didn’t owe them anything. My service dog and I will not be back. If their cash register isn’t working DO NOT PAY it is a scam!!!

Eric Allen: Customer service is one of the best the associates are great clean store just wish they finally add a small aquatics section

Manush Mobarhan: Order online and pick up in store service works seamlessly

Felix Ezeanyaeche: Unhelpful, and trash communication skills from some of the employees. If you're going to have the attitude then don't work there...

Mark Dunkum: Well stocked, with friendly employees.

Damaris Torres: Worse phone customer serivce ever ! I called regrading a online order I placed for same day pick up . And the cashier I spoke to her attitude was horrible, when I asked if it’s okay that I have someone else pick up the package for me being that online it clearly states to bring your ID to verify , her response was “ well I’m not a computer so you’ll be good “ I simply said “ excuse me ? “ because I was completely blown away by this answer , she proceeds to repeat what she just said almost like it was okay . When being in customer serivce you have to have customer serivce ! Friendly attitude … so once she repeated herself I asked her if she was having a bad day because her attitude was bad her answer to that was “ yeah I’m having a bad day and your making it worse by asking me these questions “ almost like her job wasn’t customer serivce . So I asked to speak to a manager and that was just as bad ! When speaking to TONY he acted like it was okay what she said and was bushing me off almost rushing me off the phone … if that’s how you want to run a store then maybe you shouldn’t be open .. just a food for thought . I’m not one to write reviews or even call Corporate but today was different and I definitely did

shealia tyson: Has everything for my Quennie Cat. Download app so you can get extra savings.

Dottie Kramer: The kindest staff! They've always answered my questions knowledgably and they were so sweet to my puppy.

Chien de Luxe: what do users think?


Pete Kaminskas: A great neighborhood pet store with knowledgeable, caring staff who recommend the best solution for your pet. A special thanks to Karen for her help today!!

Lauren Tierney: A wonderful pet supply store with an incredible selection and very helpful staff! They have hard-to-find pet items, such as Hurtta dog apparel too!

Mary A Jenets: I love this store. I buy lots of tops for my nieces and myself. Socks, the svarorsky crystal collar for my nieces pug. My husband is not a pet fan so I do not have a dog or cat, but my niece has Gracie, her black pug who is adorably spoiled. The tshirts and night shirts and sweat shirts are well made and worth every dollar.

Jeremy Apelian: Very friendly staff with a great selection. They went above and beyond and were very patient with my puppy after her accident. Always great to shop local.

Darren Moretti: Wonderful selection and staff is very knowledgeable about products.

PetMAC: what do users think?


Helena Chaves: Genuinely the nicest, most efficient and knowledgeable customer service I have ever received. They offer the greatest advice, cater to your needs, and even gave veterinarian recommendations for my sweet cat Luna. When saying I was a college student, an employee immediately understood my financial circumstances and gave me the most affordable prices. Definitely will be going here for many years to come.

Joseph Thomas: Good Prices and great discounts for members. I always buy the super Long BullySticks! Perfect for a large dog. But I must warn you it's a small shop with just enough room to turn around. Also its is kinda hidden in the cut so you have to make sure you look out for the bright green building on Connecticut Ave. Parking sucks on the street but it's ok as long as you don't linger in the store. Get in and get out or risk a ticket. They don't play around!

Melissa Glidden Tye: Lovely local pet store. Small, but well stocked and will do special orders if you're looking for something they don't have. Most importantly, these are folks that really CARE about animals. So you're not just supporting a local business, but you're supporting people that helping to improve the lives of the animal population in the area. Pet Mac is affiliated with a wonderful organization, Pets Bring Joy, an animal rescue organization that works to find foster and forever homes for animals in need.

Cristine Romano: My beloved neighborhood pet store for the last 20 years. The proprietors are so knowledgeable and they dispense valuable advice. It's this aspect that distinguishes a small local gem like PetMAC from national and online retailers who might carry some of the same products.

Miles Fawcett: Very nice small local pet shop where the owner is interested in getting to know your pet. Good selection of items for cats and dogs. Their cats roaming the shop so make sure to close the door behind you. they have an arrangement with UPS so we're often able to pick up our UPS packages from here rather than having it redelivered.

Michelle Nam: Love the products that they sell here! They have a good selection of high end quality dog food and my dog and I love coming here. If your brand or product is out, they will also do a custom order for you. You pay upfront and they'll notify you when it comes in. The prices are reasonably and comparatively with online stores, it's about the same. The only thing I would have to say is that the store usually just has one worker in the store at a time. I've been there numerous times throughout my first year here and most of time it's not busy at all. But the one time it was, I had to wait 20 minutes to get helped. The only person in front of me was getting personally helped by the worker by grabbing things for her when the customer clearly knew where everything was and has been there before. There were definitely moments in which the worker could have helped me but she chose not to and because of that, my parking meter ran the time out. My only recommendation is that they have multiple workers during peak hours as well as train workers on how to handle busy hours better.

Metaverse Man: Owner is obnoxious. Avoid! Despite also being a UPS pickup point, the owner refused to let me leave a large heavy package labeled for UPS pickup after I carried it several blocks. She claimed she didn't have room for it, despite having a mostly empty store. I told her it was fine to leave it outside for UPS to collect when they came because it was worthless junk being returned to the manufacturer for environmentally responsible recycling, but she acted like it would be no big deal for me to just load the box back on my dolly and wheel it 10 blocks to the UPS store. I decided to leave the box anyway because she is the designated UPS access point. If she doesn't want to do her job and accept packages, then she should terminate her agreement with UPS, but I had relied on the fact that she is a designated point in bringing the package there. As between which of the two of us should bear the bigger burden, it was a far greater burden for me to take the package back, than for her to simply do what she agreed to do and type the numbers into her computer and let UPS handle it. So today I checked the tracking number and the package is in transit. So despite her "clutch the pearls" moment over "such a big box," she seemed to smarten up enough to just enter the package information into the system and UPS of course came for the package because they are quite happy to pick up a heavy box and collect a big fee from the company paying for the return She was just saying no because she is a obnoxious snot. In the end, I was right and she was wrong.

Amalia Baikie: Had a great personalized experience here. Got a case of cat food and treats for less than I would at the big brand stores! Definitely a great small business to support, that carries good kitty cat food.

Darren Kealey: Local shop that every pet owner should know of. They are nice they have good pricing and they treat you with respect. 5 stars and a thank you.

Dan Gomez: The people here are wonderful and love pets as much as I do. They're also very knowledgeable and have given me very helpful advice on numerous occasions. Plus, there's usually 2-3 cats roaming the store waiting to be adopted, which makes shopping here more fun!

Petco: what do users think?


keshieshimmer M: I work in retail so I get that customers can be out of line sometimes. I made a thoughtless purchase and went to return it, I knew it was close to the 30 day window but figured I could get store credit, bc my bad I should have done it sooner. Unfortunately, this store told me that after 30 days my item was worthless - the kicker is that the 30 days expired the previous day. The item was sealed and it cost $9.99. And they refused a store credit, I mean really? If you ever have issues just call petco online. I got a credit for the item. When I first started to work retail I used to act like the money was coming out of my check, glad I grew out of that mindset.

Cilver: This is a great store with a friendly staff. Mr. Deon, Ms. Isis, Mr. Ricardo and Ms. Alana are always ready to help and they always give great customer service. Thank you! I also want to add Ms. Lelani and Mr. Edmund to the list! Thank you for your great customer service and welcome to the H street Petco!

janice don: Great place for all of your supplies. May not have everything; my cat requires special food, but it has enough for those basic needs.

Benjamin Dempe: I love Petco. The staff was awesome and very helpful. I do feel like their stock was fairly depleted and we only ended up getting around half of what we needed. I'm not sure if it was just a restock day or if I've just gotten too use to Chewy, but I ended up going home and getting several items online.

Jacob Hart: "Our return policy is simple – if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, you can return it to any of our Petco or Unleashed by Petco stores or to one of our petco.com warehouses." - Apparently untrue, my 4 month old puppy destroyed a couple of "ultra durable" toys I bought from this location within half an hour of being given them and I was told by an employee here that Petco was not responsible for my dog's "style of chewing" even if the toy was advertised as durable on their shelves. Stick to Chewy for toys, they'll actually back up their return policy.

Kymie Pleasant: Customer Service here is EXTREMELY HORRENDOUS! Staff is very biased and discriminatory! U walk in & speak you can barely hear a mumble from the staff; no one is welcoming! Today I went in for a bath upon approaching the back I asked was a tub available I was told yes; one tub was occupied one was filthy and the other was too low. I asked if someone could come to clean the filthy tub or raise the grate that was too low on the other. An unwelcoming annoyed staff person rinsed the dirty tub. I was baffled as COVID-19 IS STILL PREVALENT that all he did was rinse the tub; NOT CLEAN BUT RINSE, A RINSE IS NOT CLEANING! I asked was there a cleaning agent to use to actually to clean the tub. ONLY AFTER ASKING did he spray a cleaning agent. He did not thank me for my patience or offer any sort of regret for the filthiness. I was going to proceed with a bath, however I gathered my things along with my dog and exited the building. THIS LOCATION & STAFF IS DISGUISTING! I would never spend another dime at this location. BEWARE!

Etta Marie Sanders: I've been going there for the last 2 years. I really love the employees there they are always very polite and helpful. I have a new dog now and I look forward to letting this dog get to know them!

Dylan Gilhooly: Lots of cool stuff. Feel that their beta fish all looked a little sad tho.

Deepika N: Cat heaven !!!! I stock up the treats and toys for months before I return. I wish Petco comes to India soon !

S. Moore: Clean but difficult to fi d parking for large purchases. The staff will help you carry large bags to your car though which is excellent customer service.

Petco: what do users think?


Austin Graff: We’re not pet owners, but stopped in to but a gift for our neighbor’s dog. The space is big with everything you’d want from toys to biscuits to anything! They have a pet grooming station, a dog biscuit bar and sell small pets like fish, hamsters, birds and snakes!

bFly Young: I gave 4 star because I went to buy a ferret the cage in thr store said one price and when I got to my car to check my receipt. I was charged more then the price on the cage. The man with glasses at the register told me that was the old price but as the consumer I was to pay what you had up in the store. I don't know nor seen anything about a higher price. Acted like he didn't amend the transaction u til I told him I'll file a complaint with the BBB better business bureau because they have to honor what was up in the store. After all that back and forth my daughter got to take home our new family member Dash. He's getting along with my son Bright. Looking forward to adding more to our family but hopefully we won't have another price issue next visit. An they play do well with Chinx our kitten like they're all siblings 😆

George Thomas Wood, III: Nice folks. We get our doggy daughters groomed there every 3 weeks or so. They are busy so sometimes it takes a while.

Harlan Harris: My Daughter-in-law went to purchase a fish and tank for her elementary classroom/students. I did not go in. She returned with both items, fish food, and water treatment. The wait was extremely quick--the store must have been well-staffed with knowledgeable salespersons. I thought +$20 for a single Betta fish was ridiculous, but I'm unaware of pricing. I do know I could have feed salmon to a family of four for less...

Joey Abrams: Pretty pedestrian big box pet store. Pet enclosures and tanks seem well managed and maintained. Online pickup order was ready and waiting when we arrived.

Olgamaris Fernandez: This Petco's grooming was HORRIBLE!!! Stay away. I went to pick up my dog (a miniature schnauzer) and he was still dirty, the hair cut was done with uneven scissors all through his body and face, as if it was done by someone with NO EXPERIENCE. Therefore, DO NOT TAKE YOUR DOG HERE, EVER!!! Even though they offered a full refund, it does not repair the horrible haircut and going to pick your dog to find him in such conditions.

Chanpen Tee: The store is nice and clean. The staff is friendly

Father Hood: The online prices are always different from in store. Once you reach your eight bag for free they do not give you your full credit which is a rip off. Will no longer be patronizing this company.

Cody Laliberte: Asked for a trim around the legs and back end, but our dog ended up with a shaved stomach and butt. Didn’t see the stomach until we had left the store already - obvious hack job with clippers that shouldn’t have been used in the first place. Nothing is straight or even, totally choppy.

Linda Roe: Staff K’Vina is outstanding. Her care for Chloe was phenomenal. Chloe responded very well to her

Howl To the Chief: what do users think?


Samuel Leohr: We placed a delivery order yesterday afternoon Fri 3/18. We were called shortly after to be informed the Howl to the Chief was sold out of items in our order. We provided alternative item requests. Today Sat 3/19 @5:15pm, we are still without our order for Frozen Perishable items. We called the store to inquire if the order status. Both the staff were sarcastic and combative. They immediately cut us off and instructed us to refer to the text message sent by the third party company used. We explained that we did not receive said text message . Instead of being helpful they began to say that it should have been sent yesterday when the order was picked up. We reiterated that we never received a text message and it was never delivered. We then asked the protocol of what happens when the orders picked up and not delivered the same day as part of the order was frozen perishable. They then stated there was nothing they could do but try to reach out. We stated our frustration as this was over $60 spent on dog food that was not received. They then said it was picked up today at 2pm (contradicting of earlier statement). We asked that they call the third party company and update us with an order status, only to be hung up on by howl to the chief. I called back shortly after to inquire if they had called the third party company and they said, they did but no one answered. After 3 years of being loyal customers, This is the last time will ever shop here again!

Ali Legros: We love Howl to the Chief. Their product selection is second to none and the staff is always helpful. We’ve been shopping here since 2013 and it’s a real destination in Eastern Market!

Tanner Hodges: Not entirely sure who DeeDee is or their role at this location, however they are rude and not helpful what so ever. I called to inquire about an online order I placed a day ago(I know about the 24 hour rule) when I asked if they knew where my order was DeeDee acted like how dare I call to ask such a question and once the 3rd party delivery service picks it up, it’s out of their hands. They huffed and puffed on the phone like it was my fault and they acted annoyed by my question. They then told me it was picked up the day before and then said it was picked up this afternoon. I mentioned it was perishable (frozen food) and DeeDee said “well we had it in the freezer” while I understand this, when I call to ask what the status of the order is and I’m treated as if I’m bothering you and not given any sort of solution, that’s what bothers me. I have shopped at this store for the last 3 years I’ve lived here I have never had this level of terrible service here and I know you may not miss my business but I’ll be going else where from now on. You can thank DeeDee for that

Daniel Lincoln: I started going to Howl to the Chief when I started working in Navy Yard and I love being able to support a small local business with friendly staff and a great selection of dog foods for my old lady dog. They have a lot of cat things as well! Lots of really cute toys and other cat/dog sundries as well. There new store space is so spacious and really speaks to my much larger personal bubble I have these days
Response: Thank you for shopping with us and happy to hear that you like our new space! We love it!

Tyler Cloud: The staff are kind and helpful. I do wish they know more about some of the products they carry, but this shop has exactly what I need. Quality dog food, quality treats. Every dog that has been in there, when I and my little dog have been, has been incredibly well behaved. I enjoy going here and Monsignor does as well!
Response: Hi Tyler! We have a few new faces that are still in training but if I can ever be of assistance with product information, please email me! info@howltothechief.com Thank you for supporting us!

J. McCormick: This cute pet shop is a staple of Eastern Market//Barracks Row and really seems to have stood the test of time. They host adoptions many weekends, and though their prices are a touch higher than "main chain" pet stores, the staff really get to know your pets, make fantastic recommendations, and are very well informed of the origin and ethics of their products. Overall, a fantastic little spot.

Lyssa McEachern: I live to come here and spoil my pups! They have a great selection - especially love the treats, primal goat milk, and Suzies CBD! This is the place to go to get a step up on your dogs nutrition!

J.B. Hutton: Nice selection of treats and food, the good stuff. Top quality treats and foods. Healthy and holistic, the stuff pets truly should eat. Large amount of frozen food and raw options. I usually have my raw food mail ordered but there was a shipping delay and arrived spoiled. I found this store late at night scrambling for my dog’s and cat’s breakfast and placed my order online. I was able to pick it up the next morning. Life savers! I will definitely be back!

Veronnica: This store is predominantly for dogs. Their cat section is very small. They dont carry the same brands for their cats as they do dogs, which I specifically went in for and their pricing is much higher than what I have paid else where once we finally figured out what the price would be since it didn’t have a price tag and wasn’t even loaded in their system as it was delivered on accident. —- Added a star for the response from owner was kind and thoughtful and it appears I must have just hit an off day, and we are all allowed an off day.
Response: Hi Veronica. I’m sorry you had a bad experience. All of our cat food cans that we carry are listed on our website. Please email me at info@howltothechief.com in regards to the food that wasn’t in the system and I can verify the cost was correct. We are usually very competitive. Also if there is a food you’d like for us to carry, I’m more then happy to bring it in for you. We are very limited on space but try to do our best to accommodate all of our customers needs. We hope to see you again.

Evan St. John: I used to come here for my hound and the staff was always kind and had a good inventory of healthy food foods. Ended up adopting another dog through this store's partnership with Rural Dog Rescue and now have another pup to make my life wonderful. The owner helped set up pick up of the pup and have always enjoyed stopping in for food and grooming products.

The Big Bad Woof: what do users think?


Joan: I highly recommend The Big Bad Woof for all your pet care needs! While visiting family in the DC area for a month over the holiday season, I ordered multiple times from them, as they carry the raw dog food I use back home in Arizona. So glad I did my homework and found them! They are helpful, stock quality products, and their delivery option was so very helpful to me, as I was staying in Rockville and didn’t have to drive into the city. They delivered to a local vet and I picked up my order from them. Fast delivery with great communication. Next time I travel with my two dogs out to the DC area – I definitely will return to shop with them. Thanks, again, for your fantastic service!
Response: Joan, Thank you so much for the great review. We really appreciate our customers and try our best to make the experience a great one. Pennye JN Co-Owner

Monica Weeks: We’ve been coming to The Big Bad Woof for months now to get treats for our dog and have enjoyed the store and neighborhood feel. But they went above and beyond this last trip! I went in to get a jacket for my dog and really had no idea how to make sure the fit was right. I brought my dog in and that was a terrible idea. He’s super aggressive towards dogs and he was nervous. Julie offered to help me in the back of the store which was really their office and warehouse. She brought me several jackets for my dog to try on and kept coming back and forth to make sure we got one that fit and I was happy with. She never made me feel like I was being a nuisance, took time to chat with me, and showed me photos of her own dog. Several of the staff pet my dog, walked around us while they worked, and were so friendly. My husband and I originally started coming here to support a small business. We will keep coming here because of their excellent customer service, genuine love for what they do, and their commitment to helping serve the community they live in.

Chloe Flowers: Big Bag Woof is perfect for our family! We have two dogs and two cats and we can obtain everything we need from here, sometimes even delivered if we are too busy with life to stop by. They’re located right off the red line metro as well which makes picking up food and toys for our pets incredibly easy. The staff there is also very friendly and knowledgeable. Big Bad Woof is an absolute joy to have in the community, we couldn’t be happier with them!

Kelli: A wonderful local business. The staff is always friendly and helpful. There's a huge variety healthy pet foods and items. Yes, some things are super specialty and expensive, but there are just as many affordable healthy options too! I love that they regularly host adoption events and seem invested in the community. My pup loves this place so much, every time we walk by he tries to drag me inside! Must be the free treats and belly rubs!
Response: Kelli, Thank you SO MUCH for the great review! Treats and belly rubs are always free and usually in abundance! Warmest regards, Pennye, Co-Owner The Big Bad Woof

Masha Bozmoff: Best pet store around! We came here a day before getting our first rescue kitten who I was planning to put on the raw diet. The staff members helped me pick out a suitable brand of raw blend that she took to immediately, and they have an array or organic, single-ingredient treats that I feel comfortable feeding her. Best part? They deliver for a super affordable fee!!

Loyal Companion: what do users think?


Jaime Aparisi: I took my dog for a full bath and they shaved his normally beautiful tail w/o my authorization. I called them and they said a manager would reach out. Crickets. Since I posted this the manager called my wife and they refunded the $84.
Response: Thank you for reaching out and letting us know about the experience you received. We have passed this along to our team to look further into this grooming issue. We sincerely apologize.

Jenny Jimenez: Yanique is fantastic for grooming! My dog Max can be a bit difficult at the groomers and has terrible separation anxiety but Yanique and the lady at the cashier were extremely kind and helpful. This has been our first visit for grooming at Loyal Companion and Yanique took some time to listen to what kind of style I envisioned Max should have. Within less than 1.5 hours, I received a phone call saying that Max was ready for pick up! I am very impressed with how quick the appointment was. He looks great and we look forward to going back for his next appointments! Also, I have been at this store before and the staff is always extremely helpful in answering any questions.
Response: That's great to hear! Thank you for sharing and have a fantastic day.

Rania Abdulhussain: I scheduled my 12 months old poodle to get groomed 3 weeks in advance, and that was a mistake, we are NEVER going there again! 1- I was told they were busy/ overbooked and the groomer I scheduled couldn’t service him, suggested I rebook and it’s not their fault the online booking is not efficient, next time I should call to schedule an appointment instead, system broken..blah blah.. 2-Appointment was for 12:30pm, I didn’t get him back until 6:30pm.. not sure why I they are allowed to do such thing. 3-He was terrified and shaking when he came home, they kept him in a cage the whole time, he peed as soon as we stepped out of the store which tells me they didn’t take him out as they promised. 4- My dog’s eyes have been red since I picked him up yesterday, his fur is uneven and short to the skin in some areas. Now I have to worry about him getting a sunburn during his outdoor birthday party tomorrow. 5- I must’ve mentioned it was his birthday 4 times and I’m looking to purchase treats for his puppy friends... no recommendations were given ... I could’ve bought one of every flavor..instead I went to Amazon and got next day delivery. Ashley apologized, it doesn’t justify what this poor puppy went through for 6 hours.Too bad I live in the McLean Gardens and I pass by the store at lease twice a day, they lost a client.

Alex Randolph: The grooming is AWESOME! Ashley has done our grooming the last two times and was great. We used to take our dog to another “big chain” groomer and the attention to detail just was not there. At Loyal Companion they get all of the small things such as make sure the dog is cut even, nail grind is done well, paws are trimmed very well and the face is done. Highly recommend.

Alissia Bishop: I cannot rave enough about Loyal Companion groomers (the store and employees are top notch, too)! My groomer, Ashley, deserves the highest praise for taking care of my shy husky. My pup gets the de-shedding package with oil treatment for her dry skin with added nails, ears and teeth cleaning. She looks like a million dollars each time she comes out and my vet just gave me an A+ on her dental health. Plus I notice her skin is get better and better. The price is unbeatable and the quality is unmatched. I recommend Ashley and Loyal Companion to anyone with a furry friend.

HT ME: This is my second time at loyal companion near cathedral Commons. The first time I was very pleased with the groomer, I think her name is Adinike (sorry if this is not the correct spelling), the second time was another groomer who did a horrible job. When I picked my dog he was so anxious that I thought OK, he is happy to see me, but apparently, he suffered there. I am so disappointed as this would have been my go to groomer. My dog's face is injured, the hair has different lengths in different part of the body, his back, probably it is the easy part and most visibly) is the only place with equal length.
Response: HT, Thank you for letting us know, we appreciate you taking the time. We are looking into this immediately. If you’d like to provide us your information at chad.rasner@ipphl.com, someone will be in touch.

Subir Lall: Loyal Companion Cathedral has great staff who are always very helpful. I bring Murphy here for grooming always. Ashley genuinely loves the pets and it shows in the care and attention to detail whenever I bring him in and she does not rush and is very patient. She even takes care of things I may have overlooked in the pre-appointment briefing. Murphy always comes back looking radiant and feeling happy band its clear he has truly enjoyed the experience. This is a place where true pet loving professionals like Ashley know how to take care of Murphy so I look forward to bringing him here always.

John Doyle: This is a top notch facility to get your dog groomed. Both Ashley and Ynique are the best groomers I’ve experienced in my over 20 years of being a pet parent. They are so friendly, prompt and fantastic at what they do!! I HIGHLY recommend them both!!

Ali Takahashi: Loyal Companion is our go-to dog store for all things food, toys, grooming and more! I love the selection that they have, their friendly staff, as well as the quirky names for their grooming services!

Lorraine Robertson: Amazing things, and strong associations. These are the responsibilities of this pet shop, and I'm glad that I settled on the best decision to come here. It was them that gave me the synthetic that I required for my pet, and I'm appreciative in light of the fact that I had the choice to get it at a reasonable cost. A really obliging assistance that I will in fact embrace to every single other person!
Response: Thank you for the wonderful review about your pet store experience! Hope you and your furry friend have a great day.

Doggy Style Bakery, Boutique & Pet Spa: what do users think?


Jasmine Gates: This review is on behalf of my client. Rafa is on his third grooming appointment with Jeni and as always he looks amazing! The staff is super friendly and we love getting the report card after each session. See you guys next month!

Emily Benson: Would totally give Doggy Style 12/10 if we could! Our puppy just went in for her first haircut and major bath, and we were expecting her to be *really* happy to see us. Instead, she was nonplussed because she was having such a great time at the spa. We had taken her somewhere else in the area recently for a bath, and she hated it. The difference between there and Doggy Style is night and day. We are going to try to convert all our fellow dog parents to go to Doggy Style! Thank you so much, Mike the Groomer!

Emily McNeil: Jeni did a great job with my pup’s grooming today! We’ll be back :) thank you!

Hannah: ahhh I wanted so badly to love this place. But it was overwhelming for such a small store. There was a worker placed in every single corner, and I felt eyes staring at me the entire time. I felt under pressure and left immediately after buying. Also the dog treats I bought were pretty overpriced.

Stacia Schacter: I had a really sketchy experience here...be sure to check your credit card statement after going to this groomer. I brought my dog in for a full grooming and paid $110. The next day, there were two charges for $110 on my credit card. I called Doggy Style to let them know and asked them to reverse the second charge. The woman did not help and never followed up. I eventually had to dispute the charge as fraud with my credit card company. In addition, when we arrived, they did not have the correct details regarding my dogs appointment and said they would not be able to accommodate his appointment because they were tight on time. This clearly wasn’t true as I had received several texts confirming the appointment details. Once I stated this, they miraculously had time to complete the scheduled services. Overall, it was a really bad experience. In the future, I will go to a groomer that doesn’t steal from or lie to its customers.

Mike S.: Great customer service. Independently and locally owned. They did a great job turning our sweet rescue dog into a rock star, and the little guy loved it! Kudos to Mike the Groomer!

Mark Stern: I love Doggy Style! They have a great selection of toys and treats, including adorable homemade treats that my dog adores. The grooming service is excellent. My dog always smells wonderful and Mike manages to clip her nails, which she won’t let me do! A wonderful place.

Carmen Cabrera: Amazing Staff and Good quality food and treats. The new groomer Jennifer is amazing. Made my little Zoe Bear look Pawgeous!

Tom: Fantastic staff. Great local store for both dog products and grooming. Call well in advance for grooming appointments, which take 2-3 hours. My puppy loved the groomer and kissed him goodbye! I wish they opened a little earlier on weekends.

Matt C.: This place is the best. I take my dog to get his nails trimmed here and the employees are all very friendly and helpful. There's a great selection of toys, treats, or whatever else you might need for your pet.

PetSmart: what do users think?


Jn Clark: Had a GREAT experience at the PetSmart Dakota Crossing grooming salon. My puppy is 6 months so he had the big fluffy hair (which I loved) but it’s time for a change. I asked his grooming artist to take him down but leave a little. I picked him up and was in awe, he looked so handsome. I love all the staff!! Andre F was great, will be back in a few weeks.

august belt: The 2 batch of fish I got from them has literally only lasted a week max , the previous fish I had got has lasted 5 months so far ( a few passed ) , but now I am completely unsatisfied because I spend so much money with them, from dogs, Guinea pigs, fish . Water test strips are great. Ammonia everything I am so upset . One passed overnight , return home from work and here is the other only lasted 7 days literally

Queen Me: This has been one of the worst business establishment ever! I took a healthy 6 yo Puppy there. He went in for a hair cut came out with small red rashes all over his body. I took him home he did not eat or drink that night. Took him to the animal emergency room where they billed me $400 to say it was the hair cut! It was not done correctly the clippers were too hot, dirty and so on! I called the store and the grooming manger says oh the groomer is new and I will give you 40% off! I’m sick to my stomach! This is my child and all you can offer me is 40% and lies ! I’m so disappointed and sadden it’s been two days yet this is hard my puppy is not doing well! This my first fur baby! Never again! If I could rate it 0 stars I would do -100!

Kevin Spann: CSR's always so friendly and helpful. Good selection of merchandise and the REWARDS program is very helpful. They provide for all my dogs needs.

Algenon Walters: I took my dog in to be groomed a week ago Monday, February 21, 2022. The groomer who provided the service was Jasmyn. As a result of my visit my puppy experienced issues due in part to his cut. She shaved my puppy extremely close over his entire body and did a poor job ensuring his facial hair or his ears were cut evenly. I ended up having to take him to the Vet which resulted in a bill of $300.00 due in part to the stress caused by his haircut. I will never use this PetSmart again and certainly wouldn’t recommend her for grooming services.

Ms C.M.: I took my pup to be groomed Saturday. They butchered my baby. I notice lastnite a nick on back of his leg an his ears were still dirty an smelly. His nails were cut too low i notice blood on paw. 1st an last time using them. They charged 101.00 for what i don't know

Phyllis Harris: Groomer left a sour taste in my mouth. The whole department seemed like a “us vs them” team thing. When I had a problem they all seemed offended instead of wanting to fix the issue and suggested since I am not happy maybe I should find another groomer. Yup, I agree. ESPECIALLY when I arrived my dog was howling and cry barking and they acted like no one heard her. I know that to be the “potty cry” and they were just ignoring it. Then once I asked them to go get her so she wouldn’t be so upset while we were discussing an issue with the bill. Her eyes were still dirty and crusty and I wonder why after a bath and cut her eyes were so messy and they said it was probably from her crying and being upset without me. Goodness. I have a Standard Poodle that is spoiled and LOVES being groomed so this is just weird…they just don’t seem like they LIKE grooming.

Lizzie Sorrell: Everything in this store is way over priced. Brought some fish for my grandson woke up the next morning to find all of them dead. I guess the clean water was to much for them. Safe to say we will not be returning.

Danielle Arandia: The grooming at this location is awful. I’ve been using Petsmart for a nail trim/grind for years and per Petsmart’s website and every other location, this is a walk up service, no appt needed; in fact most other locations won’t even let me schedule an appt. Every time we go here for a nail trim, we get turned away and told to make an appt. When I call to make an appt (bc you cannot make this type of appt online) they’re “full.” It literally takes 10 min each time to get my pup’s nails trimmed so it’s quite ridiculous. My final straw with this location was finally getting an appt and then come to find out they scheduled us in Falls Church?! I’m so over this location. Go somewhere else.

Terrance Hobson: If you have a choice, NEVER come to this Petsmart for grooming. I had an appointment at 10am and they told me come back at 2pm. At 2pm, they told me to come back 3:30. I arrived at 3:30 and they haven’t even started on my dog yet! I’m never coming back to this Petsmart again.

Detective Twist: Couple of my projects that I have been doing with my friend. All of the aquatic plants seen here, with the exception of the emersed plants, are from Chico's Pet Market. What a great place
Response: ❤❤❤👍

Rosemary Navarro: This place is not only top notch for pet products but they are really trying to do something good for unfortunate cats in need. After speaking with Danielle on the phone regarding adopting one their cats we immediately felt a connection of a loving and caring person on the other side of the phone. Even though this location was a bit far from us, it was worth the trip. Looking forward to future visits and staying in touch on the progress of our new loving feline family member.

Loyal Companion: what do users think?


Kat Edwards: Great little store with an awesome selection of high quality pet products. Only issue was I was looking for some winter gear for me very, very small pup and though they had some excellent winter gear, it was only size medium or above. I am going to guess they were just out of the tiny dog apparel. If you live in Clarendon, Roslyn, or Courthouse this a great place for high-quality pet food.

Tilly Lo: First time visiting this Loyal Companion location today. The gentleman working there was very friendly and informative. He managed to get my not-so-friendly pup to want some attention from him. They have a great selection of specialty pet products. the staff is very friendly and the store is well organized and clean. When I am in the area again, i will definitely shop here again. UPDATED: I found this Fresh is Best Chicken Heart Bites at this Loyal Campanion location and my finicky pups love them!!! They already ate 1/2 bag. I'm going to need to pick up more!
Response: Tilly thanks for the pawsitive review about our friendly, informative pack and our great selection of products! 🐾

Chrystine Tadler: We were really happy to stumble upon the Clarendon loyal companion after first moving to the neighborhood. Now my dachshund knows the street and always tries to lead us to the door on every walk. The selection of treats has been great and the staff are always friendly, excited to see my pup, and happy to answer all my questions about food and snacks.
Response: Chrystine, Thanks for the great review. So happy to help! 🐾

Lori Howard: Many thanks to Jason at the Arlington Loyal Companion location for reassuring us over the phone that he would wait for our arrival, even if we were a few minutes past the closing time. When I went to pay, he didn't just finish the transaction and shoo us out the door... he went the extra step of reminding me that I may have one of their new Friends and Family coupons in my email, which I did! And he honored it, saving me $40! And then as he walked us out, he gave my sweet doggies Smokey and April a handful of treats before closing for the evening. Smokey counts on his CBD Oil by Wholistic Hound for controlling his seizures. So glad this shop carries the 1000 mg bottle. Excellent service, wonderful shop, great products! Thanks so much.
Response: Lori, Thanks for the great review! So happy to help.

J Y: All of the workers at Loyal are friendly, personable, and always exceed my expectations when it comes to customer service. Prior to getting my pup, we were unsure of which food to purchase. They took the time to discuss the many raw food options they carry. They are knowledgeable of the many options they have. Loyal is very accommodating as I have a picky pup and are always willing to order specific food for us. Overall, I highly recommend this Loyal Companion.

Jason B: Meh, maybe it's because I go to other stores typically, but it's just meh. I know it was Saturday, but the one employee in the store while showed me some options did it begrudgingly and the moment they saw a way out, went to another part of the store. I wouldn't say they mocked me, but they weren't exactly nice nor professional. Anyhow, if you want some different dog food, it's fine, but I wouldn't run here.

Leu Gillem: I would give it 6 stars if I could. The team is awesome. We have been taking our Rhodesian Ridgeback, Kymba, there since she was a pup. The team (and Kona, the awesome Great Dane) greets her by name when we walk in. They provide her with a treat, so it's become a regular stop on our walks. The staff is super nice, personable, knowledgeable, and all simply good people overall. We genuinely feel welcome at Loyal Companion every time we step foot in the store. Prices are competitive, especially since they incorporated a simple point system where you get X dollars in credit for X dollars spent in store. We get all our food (and treats) there. They are super accommodating. They provide car side pick-up and when there are too many dogs in the store, they will come outside and greet you. They do good in the community too. They hold pet adoption events & they allow local animal business to advertise their services. Ryan, Meesh, Emily, Jason, (and Brittany) are the best. Service 12/10 Pricing 9/10 Knowledge 10/10 Value 10/10

Leah Creamer: I came in looking for a sensitive stomach food formula for my dog who had recently started vomiting, and instead got a 15 min private consultation! Jason was very knowledgeable about all the food options and gave me detailed information about each brand to help me make the best decision. He also talked me through when his own dogs had similar GI problems and encouraged me to see my vet, but in the meantime recommended a great hydrating/electrolyte replenishing option in the form of goat's milk. Our dog loved the goat milk formula and was soon on the mend! Thank you Jason!
Response: Leah, Thanks for the pawsitive review! 🐾

Daminic Davenport: I want to start off by saying I spent hundreds of dollars over the years before they change their name to loyal companion. I really enjoy coming to this shop until today. The individual tending the store was very rude, dismissive and pushy. As I went to put my food on the counter to be rung up the individual immediately said you need to step back. I have no problem keeping the social distancing in place but the way he demanded me to step back made me feel threatened. He then goes on to ramble about how he’s attempting to social distance as much as possible and he began to act agitated and starts to threaten to not serve me for not having a mask on. I stated to him there was no sign on the door stating I had to wear a mask nor did anyone stop me at the door asking me to wear one. He then stated that it was common sense to have a mask on. I truly felt patronized and profiled as the gentleman leaving before I walked in had no mask and wasn’t spoken to the way I was. I then stated I would be happy to put on a mask if you would put the sign on the door stating it’s required he then continued to say I don’t have to serve you technically so I asked for his name and and he said why are you going to complain about me? I said I’m going to write a letter and he said good my name is Jason. The customer service with this individual was so rude I will never shop here again and I will be writing a letter to the corporate office because no one should be treated this way. I hope all of the employees are not the same because they will continue to loose business with Jason.
Response: Daminic, Thank you for alerting us to this. We value each customer and apologize for the delayed response. We are looking into this matter. If you’d like to provide us your information at chad.rasner@ipphl.com, someone will be in touch.

Zack Schwartz: Great store! Good selection of healthy options for my cats, lots of toys and other things they need. The people there are absolutely the best -- Brittanie, Emily and Michelle (and their dogs) are friendly and helpful. Strongly recommend.
Response: Zack, Thank you for the purrrfect 5 stars! 🐾

JESSICA LOGAN: We love Elysium. The staff and groomers are amazing. My girl is always happy and relaxed when I pick her up. The quality of care and style is outstanding!
Response: We're glad that your girl had a wonderful time at the salon! :)

sandy greenwald: Reuben is amazing. He always makes sure Wrigley is looking amazing ! From head to toe he does the best job! The store has the best treats and wonderful merchandise!
Response: Hi Sandy, Reuben said thank you. We all do appreciate your review but we all love Wrigley more :-). Take care and see Wrigley soon. John

Shelby Cox: I love having this pet store within walking distance of my home. The staff is always so kind and helpful. My dog loves all the treats and food from this store. Also I love the harness and coat that I bought for my dog by Canada Pooch. I don't know what it is but it is like a perfume or something on the coat I got and it smells so wonderful and it must have come from the store. It makes my dog smell great too. Will continue going to this store.
Response: Thank you for your wonderful review Shelby! :)

Tricia Ting: Very happy with our pet grooming. Reuben did his best to save some length in our dog’s matted long hair. Much better than shaving down to the skin as has been our past experience elsewhere.
Response: Thanks, Tricia. Your review put a smile on Reuben 😁. Have a great weekend...John

Hannah T: We feel so lucky to have this store in our neighborhood! It is so clean (no “dog” smell) and has a great selection of high-quality products. There are treat samples out so that you do not have to buy a whole bag and guess if your dog will like it. The staff is always helpful and kind.
Response: Thanks for the valued feedback and nice review. We (John, Reuben, Stephanie & Abby) are very grateful for our community continued support in these trying times... Thank You!

Esther Goldschlager: We love Elysiem! My dog is groomed by the best dog groomer (the dog groomer to the doggie stars) - Reuben. My dog is elderly and requires some extra love and care. Reuben is incredibly patient with my dog and always styles him like he's living in Los Angeles and ready to strut up and down Rodeo Drive! Thank you, Reuben!
Response: Thanks, Ms. G and we love Edison as our own fur baby. Happy Mother's Day - early :-). John, Reuben, Juliet, and Stephanie.

S B: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueRuben is wonderful! He is a great groomer, and very kind. My dog looks beautiful and feels so soft.. She also loves seeing Ruben and having him groom her. Going to Elysiem is a very special treat for her.I highly recommend Ruben!

Liza Sitz: Absolute amazing job grooming and bathing my dog! They were so efficient, friendly, and well-priced! The best part was that I only had to leave her for an hour to get groomed, where other places will want her to stay for at least four hours. I will absolutely return!! Highly recommend!
Response: Hello Liza! Thank you so much for your reply!! We are so happy you and Phoebe had a good experience with us today! See you soon :)

Ben Morlock: John and his team provide excellent service. His walkers take care of our dog like he’s their own. His store is the only one in our area that carries our dog’s brand of food. And they even deliver it for us when we’re running low. We also appreciate that when we do business with John, we’re supporting a veteran and a small business owner. We highly recommend him to every pet parent in the area.
Response: Ellie really enjoy taking care of Tucker. Thanks Ben and Breanna for allowing Pet Parents to be part of your family and for sharing Tucker with us.

Carynne Jarrell: Nail trimming for our hesitant dog is the best! Highly recommend.

Nature's Nibbles Del Ray: what do users think?


yiming rolo: Stopped by here for some dog treats yesterday and had an enjoyable visit. I’ve driven by here many times but never really noticed it before and am always happy to support independent small local businesses! The people were friendly and also respected my dog’s space, which I really appreciated since she can be a bit skittish & reactive at times. She was quickly won over with some turkey treats. The person working the counter had his small dog with him and proactively put his dog behind the gate when it became clear they were getting a bit stressed from each other. Got lots of samples for both my dog and my friend’s cat. I really like that they are so generous with giving out samples of treats and food, so I can try before committing to a 28-35 pound bag of dog food. They have a fridge/freezer section in the back full of raw food & bones (and possibly kefir). I got a raw beef bone, goat jerky recommended by the sales person, and sooo many samples. They focus pretty exclusively on food & treats, aside from a few small cat toys and a small section of Earthbath shampoo & pet wipes and possibly a few other things. The Dog Store, which is more in the heart of Del Rey, is a better bet for a more comprehensive selection like toys and training equipment, etc. That said, I loved that I was the only person in the store and both the sales person and his mom were super friendly and also big dog lovers. I definitely recommend Nature’s Nibbles if you’re near Del Rey and need food or treats for your dog and/or cat!
Response: Thank you so much for this fantastic review! Yes, Nature's Nibbles is dedicated to educating pet owners about and selling the highest quality pet food money can buy!

Jennifer Schwartz: Great service and great choices! Grateful for Natures Nibbles and for the health of our dog. I love shopping here and learning about how to keep our little one healthy. We also love the dog wash.
Response: Thank you for the great review Jennifer!

Barbara Cooper: We lived near Del Ray for years and shopped here. We loved this store and we have never been able to find anything else like it. We especially liked being able to try a small bag of the cat food before buying a big bag. Since our kitty has stomach problems, this is critical for us. Luckily, we are moving back to Alexandria in the near future. We can’t wait to shop here again!
Response: Thank you for the great review Barbara! Yes, we have free samples, but we also have a 100% money back guarantee! For any reason your cat refuses to eat it or doesn't do well on it, return it and we'll try something else! Also, if you'd like to discuss your kitties stomach problems, I'd love to help! Please email info@naturesnibbles.com Welcome back! - Chris, owner

Daysi Luther: I came here many years ago when I lived in the area. The staff was very friendly and informative about natural dog food and treats. Even though I don't live in the area anymore, I often think about how awesome this place was. Haven't been able to find another place like it to get natural foods for my dog.
Response: Wow! Thanks for the great review Daysi!

Brenna Killeen: The folks who work here are so knowledgeable and helpful. They helped me pick out a good balance of food for my rescue pup who has a variety of health issues. They also welcomed him in the store. Even better, they offer discounts to teachers and other public servants. This is a great business to support.
Response: Thank you for the great review Brenna!

Talor Goins: My husband and I stopped by yesterday looking for a more natural food for our fur baby. We had a bit of questions for the gentlemen working but he didn’t know every answer. He then told us he would get the owner on the phone to answer any more questions that we had. We talked to Chris for about 20 minutes and we now know so much more about dog food than we did before. Our fur baby loves the new canned food that we brought home. Thank you, Nature’s Nibbles and your great staff/owner!
Response: Thank you for the great review! I'm so glad your pup loves the food! - Chris

Brittaney Wright: Most of the folks who work here are super sweet. Plus, if your animal has an issue with the food, they will allow you to return it. I've had to return food there once before for my picky cat. They have a good selection of high-end pet products at reasonable prices.
Response: Thanks for the great review Brittaney!

Camila López Casasbuenas: Very knowledgeable folks and great service. Bought some yummy treats for my cat and he loved it, made his last day a little bit better. Teachers have 10% off.*Edit* decided to ditch our online delivery for pet food and started buying from here. Is always nice to go to the store. Diego, Amelia and Fiona love their food.
Response: Camila, thank you so much for the great review!

Michael Lincoln: My dog loves it here and they have a good selection of treats and quality food for pets. My boy Darby has been a long time Fromm fan and they have most of the flavors here for him. The staff have always been friendly, and Darby usually gets a sample or two when he comes along.
Response: Michael, thank you for the great review!!!

Lizzie B: Best pet food store ever. The owners and assistants are INCREDIBLY knowledgeable and compassionate. They helped me learn the importance and economical value of higher quality food and answered all of my questions patiently. They will also deliver pet food. Way better than Amazon!
Response: Lizzie, thank you for such a great review! I hope your pup is doing better! - Chris

The Dog Store: what do users think?


Christa Langley: Hippo LOVES his new Hippo! He also loved the treat that we got him. The store was well stocked with treats, food, accessories, all things dog! They also had a section for cats :)

Rebeca Ahn: My partner and I just moved to Del Ray from the other side of town, and we made it a point to commit to shopping locally. We have two fur babies of our own, and were SO happy that The Dog Store was a 10 minute walk from our house. This place is THE BEST. They carry the best brands and always treat us like we're family. Kadeem is the man! He will never hesitate to make sure you're taken care of and will always give your babies all the love. There's no competition here - The Dog Store is the best pet store in the DMV. We are so happy that they're around.

Chanpen Tee: There are a lot of treats and toys. The store is nice. Staff is Friendly

Celia and Loulu: Great store and variety focused on pooches.The team provided excellent service and were knowledgeable about the offerings.I will return in the future.Many thanks!

Hayliegh Watson: Neat little pet shop! Annabell was super nice and a pleasure to meet during our first visit! Lots of toys, dog and cat gear, and quality dog foods. Was a little sad on the small selection of refrigerator raw foods they carried but everything else was great! They even have a rewards program with their dog food! We will be back!!

Jenny McDaniel Barr: You won't find a better place for your puppy. They love them as if they were their own. It's like being in a indoor dog park but only better. Because all dogs go through an evaluation so you can rest assured that all the other dogs are friendly. They are well supervise. If you board your dog here. why you're away they actually sleep in the room with the staff member they watch TV as if they were at home .Best place ever. They get to play with all their other friends while you're away. It's like a mini vacation for your dog.

Tamika: This store is organized nicely and comfortable!Kadeem is awesome, very attentive and helpful.

Paul Haire: Everything a dog lover loves. Fun mix of toys and wild and crazy "gnaw bar" treats. Top brands of healty food. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. Must do stop whenever you are in Del Ray.

Joe King: The dog store was super helpful in identifying food and treats for our puppy that are allergy friendly for our small children, spending time reviewing ingredients, and getting back to us on available options. We also received advise on choosing a vet, etc. Thanks!

patrick Robertson: Great business! Staff is friendly and knowledgeable and they have a wide variety of items that are hard to find. Also, probably obvious, but location is dog friendly. Our pups like going to the store with us.

Eden Pets Supplies & Aquarium: what do users think?


Cassandra Telluria: This place should be reported to the authorities. Fish are absolutely cramped into tanks. One of the tanks was chuck full of fantail goldfish and bullfrog tadpoles. I "rescued" one of the fantails. It had ick and shredded fins. I am treating him at home. Plus the store owner followed my around the store when I was looking at the fish tanks as if I was trying to steal. Avoid this place like the plague it is.

Elazar Wells: Then lady at the store was very helpAlso had some cool fish

adaeze offorbuike: I went into the store last week and it saddens me to see the cages the animals are in. It broke my heart to see 2 young guinea pigs in a very small tank. They barely have enough room to move and the tank is dirty and I didn’t see any hay which they need 24/7. The rabbits and other small animals are also in the same situation. Not only are the animals being neglected, it’s showing customers wrong ways to care for animals. If you are selling animals you need to make sure you are caring for them properly. A guinea should never be in a tank! Especially not one that small. One guinea pig is also $65 which is ridiculous. They should just stick to selling supplies and stop neglecting these poor animals!

Sean Dibble: I had originally written a great review of this store, but my experience today completely changed my opinion and I will no longer shop here. I have frequented this establishment for over a decade and watched it go up and down it terms of quality. I accepted that they were totally overpriced since they are independently owned so there were many occasions when I chose to just look and then buy the fish elsewhere. While on furlough from Covid, which was from March till September for me, I shopped here at least 3 or 4 times a week. I purchased plants, my freshwater angelfish, two of my discus fish, two cockatiels and far too many community fish to count for my four tanks. In that time, I spent at least a few thousand dollars because I wanted to support local businesses. By this time, the owners were more than familiar with me and my foster son. I am a retail manager so I believe that loyal customers should always be given red carpet treatment. That's how I conduct business at my store, and what I expect as a consumer. This past Thursday, I purchased 5 fish and two bettas. As the guy was bringing the bags to the register, he remarked that he thought one of the fish had died. He poked the bag and the fish quickly swam to the other side. I assumed it had just lodged itself in the bottom crease, as anyone who has bought fish is familiar with. By the time I got home (less than 7 minutes away), two of the fish, including the one the employee pointed out, were already dead. Next day, one of the bettas and another fish were dead. I had to work so I was unable to return until today. I explained the situation to the woman at the register, who remembered when I was there, as did the employee, and told her I wanted just to replace the fish that died. She nodded, indicated that she was fine with that, from my perspective. All that changed when we bought the bagged replacements to the counter. Suddenly she wanted a sample of my water. I reminded her that the fish died in THEIR water, not my own, and she flat out refused to offer a replacement. Mind you, these were inexpensive fish, unlike my prior purchases, but she flat out refused. I even said "after all the money I've spent here over the past months and your own employee admitting that he thought the fish could possibly be dying, you're not willing to replace it?" She adamantly said no. I told her that I would never shop in her store again, as there are far better tropical fish stores like House of Tropicals and Today's Pets which are also independent and she told me she didn't care. I told her I didn't want the new fish, tossed the bag containing the dead fish on the counter and told her I would be changing my review, to which she also indicated she did not care and to "have a nice day". Many of the customers are new to the hobby and I have watched them rip off countless people who seem unaware that they can get the same fish for far less money elsewhere. Their tanks are overpriced, their bird cages are twice what the cost is at Petco or Amazon, and the service has gone back to being garbage now that stores are open again. All the bird cages are empty, the tanks with fish for sale are dirty and many had dead fish, and the reptiles are poorly cared for. People who actually like this place have probably not been to a proper pet store like the two I mentioned. Once you've been to those, Eden will seem like some bad joke. I will NEVER shop her again and can now concur with the many bad reviews about this place and the rude owners. Do yourself a favor and spend your money someplace that appreciates your business.

Sabrina Rosaé: Absolutely DO NOT COME HERE. The lady I’m guessing is Eden? We came in there an hour before they closed and bought a Guinea pig and all the stuff they need. Brought it home and immediately noticed it was sick, not moving and not even eating. It died 4 hours after we bought it. We went back just now to try to either get a refund or get a healthier Guinea pig. She blamed the death on us and said we “abused” the Guinea pig. And said if we wanted another one we’d have to pay half price. There’s literally no way we could’ve abused this animal, we didn’t even have it for 24 hours. Also the Guinea pig was $60, and I didn’t even know that price was high until after I bought him. Ugh

Joe Med: That's aquarium store they have a lot of different items to pick from they have fresh water salt water fishes they have rabbits birds and koi fish sometimes they have very large koi fish I give five stars to this store because it's the best

Victor Albert: Had a lot of options Sadly none were for sale. .Why have a price listed and had on display if not for sale. Not to mention half the tanks were nfs. Don't waste your time.

Manuel Aguilar: Lady who answers the phones and works the cashier is very rude and has horrible customer service. I'm not sure if she's just uneducated or she just gave up on life. So sad to see these animals being taken care of like this.

Sashlyn Ch: My child and l felt so sad about the iguanas, they’re in a small cage with the dead ones, you can feel the foul odor, for us is animal cruelty 😔😞

Alicia Davis: I went to this establishment to get my fish tank started. The woman at the register was so rude. I purchased over $100 worth of supplies to get the tank ready to go before I purchased fish. She told me to bring some of the water back so it can be tested before I put fish in the tank. I returned to have the water tested. She stayed on the phone the whole time and pointed for me to take the water to the male employee. He refused to test the water unless I bought fish. I explained I didn’t want to purchase fish until I knew the water was ready because I didn’t want them to die. He was so rude and said take your water to another store. After I just spent over $100 in this store. I will NEVER spend another dollar in this store and I’m not referring anyone to go there either. The worse customer service ever

City Dogs Daycare: what do users think?


Laura Vincent: I love bringing my dogs to citydogs for doggy daycare. They come home happy and dog tired. I love reading my daily report cards, so cute :) The staff are friendly with me and observant of my pups’ needs. For example, my dogs are in between a big dog and a small dog size. Ginsy is confident and can play with any sized dog, the David is beta and submits easily to bigger dogs, but they are bonded. One day, David wasn’t having as much fun in the big dog room. So, the staff moved them both to the small dog room to see if that was more enjoyable. It was! Since then, both my pups get the most out of their visits and are always excited to go back. The one downside is that the facility is indoors and the floors are tile. It’s inevitable their paws will be a little stinky when they get home. But you can’t blame city dogs for that! This is very common for doggy daycares in the city; It comes with the territory. I recommend using “Scrubby rinse free shampoo mittens” with oatmeal waterless shampoo or oatmeal wipes. It’s a great alternative to a full bath that will still get them clean. If it’s time for your dog to get a bath, city dogs has bathing services that are affordable. And they schedule the bath around when you will pick your pup up, so they are fresh and clean when you arrive.

MICHELLE MARSHALL: This is my first dog and her first grooming experience. I was very excited for her. However, when I got home to see her I cried. She looked horrible. All her beautiful fir on her face was gone. Her hair was frizzy, dry and wild. The cut looked very unfinished and uneven even though all we asked for was a trim. The groomer cut too close on her nose and created a cut/irritation. She’s been scratching at it ever since. Not to mention one of her paws is still sharp. I’m not only dissatisfied but I feel guilty for Putting her through this. I’ve wasted money before and can get over that but my baby is looking bad right now. I haven’t gone there to complain or argue…. Even though I’m angry and sad. What’s done is done. She will not be returning for a grooming experience. I’ve seen better work at petco. If you believe me check out the before & after pics……

Natalie Bohnet: Positive: Reliability, ValueMy energetic beagle mix Pablo goes into City Dogs daycare very enthusiastically. He comes home tired & happy. Buying the pass makes it reasonably priced. I love the photos on the door welcoming the new dogs! Great place!
Response: Hi Natalie, Pablo loves to play with his friends Cali and Lucas when he visits. They always have a blast together. Thanks for choosing up to spend time with Pablo. Love, City Dogs

Haddassah Goldberg: I have been considering giving City Dogs a try because we recently moved to the neighborhood and they’re so close to my home, but I walked by this afternoon and they had their front door propped wide open. My dog is a runner, and I’m sure he’s not the only dog who would make a break for it if he made it to the lobby. I will be looking elsewhere because this left an awful taste in my mouth.
Response: Hi Haddassah, if your dog is a master at opening doors, we do appreciate that you haven’t brought him to try our services. We share and understand your concern for dog safety, but we do have mitigations in place on occasions where we’re bringing in some fresh air. Please come take a look inside sometime. We consider our dog customers and their human parents like family, and we appreciate the chance to talk through concerns with customers before posting a review. After our front door, 4 additional doors separate our play rooms from the outside. Our play areas are on the lower level and we have two doors in the stairwell and two doors on each playroom. We would never encourage a customer to bring their dog if it’s not a good environment for them, and we won’t hesitate to let you know. So please, come inside sometime and check it out for yourself sometime.

Amanda Blake: Positive: Professionalism, Reliability, ValueMy pup had such a good time at City Dogs!! I love how they put her photo out front the first day to welcome her and sent videos of her in her "report card." I was able to see the facilities before I dropped her off, and everyone was very kind and clearly loved dogs. She's currently asleep, worn out from her super fun day. 10/10!

Jenelle Thomas: My furry kid’s first day was amazing! We felt so welcomed, especially seeing his personal ‘Welcome’ sign. The staff were patience, friendly and attentive, all the qualities my senior dog needs. I truly appreciated the video update of my pup- to see that he didn’t appear anxious and was very intrigued. I’m excited for my pup to join the City Dog family!
Response: Hi Jenelle, Thanks for the wonderful review. We're pleased to know you and Prince enjoys daycare here at City Dogs. Welcome to the CD pack! Love, City Dogs

Alison Griner: Took my dog to daycare, inside is clean and they keep your dog on leash until past several doors. It was her first time there, so she received a free bath, an adorable framed photo, and a detailed report card. Felt very welcome by the staff including posting a welcome poster of her on the door!

Colleen Turner: Positive: ProfessionalismI send my dog to City Dogs H St for grooming. The staff is so friendly and takes great care of him. He comes home clean and in a good mood, which says A LOT for a dog who doesn’t love a bath!

Traycie Powell: Voltaire always has the best time with his City Dog friends. He is exhausted by the time he gets home...which shows me he had a blast! I love all the pictures and videos the staff send when requested. Great hours for those of us who work long days. 🐾5 PAWS 🐾

Megan Bailey: I brought my dog there for the first time and put in specific instructions regarding my dog being sensitive and to go slow. I also gave instructions when I dropped him off. When I picked him up I asked how it went and they said great! He was cut shorter than I preferred but that was fine. I get my dog into the car and he is absolutely terrified. He growled at me several times when I tried to touch his tail or feet which has not happened before. I am not sure what they did to my dog but I would never recommend this place. As an FYI I also emailed them and it has been over a week with no response about this.

The Dog Park: what do users think?


Austin Graff: The Dog Park is one of several dog stores in Old Town. However, the Dog Park stuck out for these reasons: 1) Staff: They were very attentive and welcoming and treated our puppy like royalty. 2) Items: They have tons of stuff for pets, including baked treats for dogs! Out front is a water bowl for dogs!

M Duncan: Love this place. Everyone is very friendly and they have a good range of toys, food, and dog apparel. I recently picked up a michigan state spartan toy for my basset, and she loves it.
Response: Thank you for photo. She is sooo cute! We are glad your doggie enjoyed Sparty!

Michelle Owen: The Dog Park is a cool little shop on King St in Alexandria, a short drive from Washington DC. There are many terrific items to choose from...collars to food to toys to dishes. The staff are knowledgeable and happy to help if you have questions or would like to just chat about your fur baby.

Mickelle Fenley: The staff here is INCREDIBLE! They're so sweet and help with any questions you may have. They have a great selection of treats, toys, beds, leashes, and so much more! They make the cutest little cookies, decorated like different animals! LOVE this place! They also have puppy ice cream, which on such a hot day, my pup enjoyed (very quickly).

Patrick McNulty: Karen (owner) was very helpful and kind. She answered all of my questions about what we needed to be prepared to bring home a new puppy and helped me with things that we hadn't even thought of. This is an independently owned local business and will be our "go to" place for our future pet needs.
Response: Thank you soo much! It was a pleasure working with you

Sarah Watson: Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Was able to get CBD treats for my highly anxious dog and they are working great!

Evan Hines: My girlfriend had just left me and I was having a very bad day. The owner/manager was incredibly emotionally supportive, she helped me find everything my Ruffus needed, gave him a treat, and took me by the hand and assured me everything was going to be ok. I don’t know what everybody is saying in these negative reviews the lady is not abrasive…

Ess Emm: I am conflicted about this place. I like to support local businesses instead of buying online. BUT, they mark up everything so much. Collars, sweaters, dog bowls. You're looking at 100% markup on stuff. DO NOT SHOP HERE. Take your money to other stores that are more reasonable in their prices.

Jess H: The associate was friendly right off the bat and drew a glittery heart on the paper bag for our dog treat (4 yr old LOVED it) Great selection of pet supplies and even greater treats! Your pup would love to visit.

Pat Finnegan: They're very friendly and have a great variety of healthy dog treats and toys!

Chanpen Tee: The staff here is so nice. The store is nice and clean. There are a lot of toy and food.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words Chanpen, we greatly appreciate it!

Matt E: These guys are wonderful. I first visited after my cat had been diagnosed with lymphoma. She was underweight and it was difficult to find food she was willing to eat and that didn't contain all the sugar, wheat and junk found in most grocery store brands. The staff at Felix & Oscar helped take a bit of stress out of a very difficult time. They seem to truly care are always friendly, and are happy to take the time to help you find the food that your pet needs. The offered a variety of options for my cat to try, and spent time reviewing ingredients, and provided several dry food samples, a blessing on it's own. It reminds me of the old mom & pop shops where you feel like a friend and neighbor. I really wish more places like this still existed... it's a quality of service and atmosphere no chain or online retailer will ever be able to duplicate. If you're in the area, make sure you pop in and support them.
Response: Matt, thanks so much for your review! It's wonderful to see so many of our customers understand that we aren't just another store - we want to help as many pet parents as we can. Each and every one of us are committed to that goal, because everyone deserves more time with their family members - human or otherwise. Thanks so much for the wonderful words and I hope your kitty is still doing well!

Lloyd Hamilton: The store maybe small, but the staff are friendly, knowledgeable and really care about the customers. Unlike the mega pet stores it size allows the staff to keep it clean and neat, allowing you to quickly find what you and your four legged family member needs.
Response: Thanks so much for the kind words Lloyd!!

Nub Cake (nubcakeandeatittoo): The ownership and staff at Felix and Oscar create an unforgettable experience every single visit. It's very likely your dog will be pampered and you will be extended every courtesy you can imagine. I've seen them give generously their time, care, attention and even products to the pets they love. I've witnessed several first hand accounts of the bonding that takes place between the owner and the pets, and it's truly because of how much they care, and how they genuinely and passionately care for the dogs and cats they serve and get to know. Some items may be a dollar or two more expensive then other shops (they may do price match, I never asked) but give it a chance and come for the experiences first and the products and yummy treats second. This place, because of the people there, is truly special.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words and review! We are humbled by your review and we strive to show all customers that your pets are our pets too, and just like you, we want what is best for them!

Marra Harris: F&O is a terrific, local pet store, w excellent brands of food as well as ancillaries for our pets. Matt, the owner, and Woody and Will know their products and are great guides in helping you find the best products for your pet's/pets' needs. They sell only high quality items. I have been shopping at F&O for several years. They feel like extended family and neighbors, they take care to get to know their customers!

Kadejh Naebzadeh: Such a helpful staff and they only carry the best products for your pets. Even have raw food for my kitty! Lotus and primal brands and some others but those are the primary ones my little guy likes. They are also very reasonably priced! Definitely shop here and support local small businesses

Alice: The service at Felix & Oscar is awesome. Woody has helped me the few times I've been here, and he is so kind and knowledgeable! He took the time to help me find the right diet for each of my 3 dogs. I can't express how thankful I am for this as one of my dogs had been in the ER and needed a diet change. I'd been purchasing from Chewy/Amazon prior to going to Felix & Oscar, and now I drive half an hour to come here for the great products and wonderful service. Thankful for the staff!
Response: Thanks so much for the awesome review Alice!!

Cindy Peet: Absolutely amazed at their customer service, professionalism, and knowledge of their products. The young gentleman with the long hair that assisted me and my hundred questions, I failed to catch his name, was beyond AMAZING! He must have walked us through every chicken free (dog has an allergy) dog food, and was ever so patient with us. Answered every question, and taught me so much!! They are beyond lucky to have him, as he is so well rounded with a glowing attitude!
Response: Thank you so much for your gracious review Cindy, We will be sure to let Woody know how much you appreciate his help and service!!
