|I tried to go to Petco to help out my friend with her dog and they told me I had to get a rabies vaccine for her adopted dog that had cancer. I explained that she has cancer and my friend was told she would die as a rabies vaccine will cause the cancer to grow very fast, and the dog had received the rabies vaccine when he was first adopted, so he already had life time protection so no need for it. I was amazed how rude PetCo was. And PetCo was very unprofessional to give medical advise when they don't know anything about dogs health especially advice that would kill a dog. Petco hates dogs.
But I am happy they did that. Because I called a very nice groomer down the street, and they did an excellent job, and were so nice, and didn't play games or offer fatal advice like Petco.
Now I recommend this really nice groomer and by helping a small business that way one is helping America. Buy Local to help your local businesses to survive. Small businesses provide better service then any corporation can provide.
Remember the small business person wants to please their customers.
But a big faceless corporation, it is all about making the most money with the cheapest worthless product or service then can provide.
I have learned this on many products and services, most small businesses provide much better then any corporation.
After the problem with PetCo several years ago, I returned all the used Pet Co products and left over dog food, etc for a refund. I also returned all the Petco stuff for my friend. We have been shopping at small businesses and grooming at the local groomer for the last few years.
Petco cost themselves two customers, plus we always tell everyone what happened so they don't waste their money at Petco either. Like the say, even bad advertising is helpful.
Hope this helps.
Visit your local groomers and when you find a person you like, have them do the grooming for you if you are comfortable they can do a good job. And explain what you want done and they will do the best they can because they get pleasure from pleasing the customers and they want you to love it so you will come back. You will probably becomes friends with your groomer and any local business people you do business with.
But the big corporation doesn't want to be your friend, they just want your pocketbook.
A corporation like petsmart or petco just doesn't care. it is all about making money, creating dividends for the shareholders and screwing the customer.
We are so happy we found a wonderful local groomer that we have used for several years now.
Help your local community, buy local.
