Petland Customer Reviews



Petland is our top place to buy pet food and dog treats. We always love to go there and see the cute pets they have. We got our dog Leo from Petland. He is the nicest, friendliest, and most cuddly dog. Every time we go to Petland the people that help and work there are always nice and have a smile. Leo loves Christmas. He plays in the snow and eats Santa’s cookies under the Christmas tree. When we come he lays there like a baby acting all innocent and cute. Leo would be the perfect Santa Claus with his white beard. Leo would be ho, ho, happy to win the holiday photo contest!

We had such a wonderful experience 2 years ago when we were looking for a puppy. The helpers were so nice and caring. They told us what all to expect about each dog’s behavior and personality. We looked at several puppies which were all adorable but we kept going back to the very first puppy that saw. My daughter said we need one with attitude, one that is sassy, but one that will cuddle and love us. Gracie IS that adorable sassy and loving dog with attitude! She completes our family! She greets us eagerly with tail wagging every single time someone comes in the door. She has no enemies what so ever. She loves everyone and every other animal, which is exactly what Petland said she would be like. Thank you Petland for our beloved Gracie!
-Scarlett Williams

Murray is definitely the cutest dog! He was found as part of a small pack of dogs roaming the cornfields of northern Iowa when he was just a pup. He has since grown into a sweet and sensitive dog, who is a loving member of our family. He loves off leash walks, playing with his kitty brothers, and snuggling on the couch.
Olly and Odyssey are Murray’s older kitty brothers. They are two peas in a pod, despite coming from different biological families. Odyssey’s gruff but lovable personality pairs perfectly with Olly’s mischievous tendencies. They are the cutest pair of cats for sure!
-Margaret N

It’s always fun to come into Petland and see all the new and exciting chew toys, treats, and dog food you guys carry. The staff has been very helpful in showing me the newer items and what they would recommend. My little Aussie is very thankful as well. You should see how excited she gets when we bring something new home for her to try. Thanks Petland!
-Coy Garton

I think our dog Lola is very cute. She is a yellow lab & is awesome around people especially kids. I Love the blend of colors she has. She LOVES to play in the snow in the winter time. Everytime we have visited petland everyone has been very nice and helpful.
-Kelsey Slay

We have two Frenchies from Peland that our family could not imagine living without. My husband started his favorite hobby at Petland, we now have at least 15 aquariums full of lovely fish. Santa brought a tiny tortoise for Christmas. The staff at Petland helped us get everything we need to ensure Tori the tortoise has the best possible start in life.

Customer Comments: I have a 3 year old Min-Pin named butch. He's my little baby. He is always making me smile. Min-Pins are a lot of work and need lots of attention (potty breaks) , however it's worth it if you have the time.

Customer Comments: I own an Australian Sheppard named Bella that is one year old and a mutt that is 4.5 years old. My dogs give me a reason to hang around outside, play at the part and wrestle in the house. Both happily follow me around and are quick to help with any spills or dropped food!

He is great with other dogs and is so friendly. Thank you Petland for bringing such a wonderful dog into our lives.

Customer Comments: Sophie - Pincher she is lovable and on the go all the time. Loves to gout side and ride in the car. She is always that the door to welcome you home. I wouldn't give up on her for anything!

Allie B.

Customer Comments: I bought my pug, Abby, from a  local breeder. she's an awesome dog, but when I first took her home she cost me a small fortune. She was sick the first night and was so young (only 5.5 weeks old) that the vet only gave her a very mild antibiotic - she ended up developing pneumonia. I called the breeder and she said I could bring her back and get the other females, but she wouldn't pay for any vet bills. that of course was out of the question. when I first went to Petland and fell in love with a pug puppy I knew Abby would love to have a friend. I was so impressed by all the warranties and background information that I didn't mind Emma costing a bit more. the peace of mind that came with knowing Petland would help with vet costs and back her up was worth it.

Stephanie B.

Customer Comments: I have a cat named Bella and a Lhasa Apso/Cavalier mix named charlie that I got at Petland. They are both great pets and Petland was a great resource for any questions that I had.

Andy N.

Customer Comments: I am the proud owner of an exquisite 75 gallon reef aquarium. I have numerous species of corals and fish that have come from Iowa City Petland's remarkable fish department. There is nothing more fascinating, bright and vigorous than the quality live stock I've found at Petland, certainly nothing has centered and hassled me more than presiding over my own aquatic suystem. It takes the eye of a naturalist to do it right and there is always one available at Iowa City Petland.

Jared C.

She has filled my life with joy and laughter. Thank you Petland.

Nan B.

Customer Comments: the first time my daughter and I went into Petland in Iowa City, IA we were simply checking if they carried the brand of puppy food she was feeding. I left with a puppy of my own! Annabelle is my very best friend. I never wanted a small dog, but had fallen in love with my daughter's pug and didn't realize how much fun it would be to have my own. She is the best dog in the whole world and I don't know what I would do without her!

Mike K.

Customer Comments: Before I got Ozzi, my french bulldog, I had no hobbies. Now I'm outside all the time playing with my little buddy. He goes on walks with me, goes fishing with me and he even rides in my truck when I run errands. Ozzi gives me reason to get up in the morning and to come home at night no matter what happens, I know he'll be right there by my side. I love my Petland pet.

Cathie S.

Customer Comments: Two days before Thanksgiving 2009 my nephew was killed in an accident. My daughter and I thought we would feel better if we could go to Petland to pet puppies. On out 4th or 5th visit we met Baxter the Karin Terrier. We worked away each day but when Baxter was first placed in my arms I know he would help my heart. He has done just that. When he tilts his sweet head to the side we can't help but laugh. It's hard to be sad when Baxter is around. He's smart and learning new tricks. He rings a bell by the door when he needs to go out, how cute is that?!

Tanya M.

Constance W.

Customer Comments: I have fish they are very relaxing to look at all the beautiful roloes in the aquarium, it's just fun to watch them sometimes they chase each other, to my fish as a more relaxing pet to look at that just my opinion just peace and quiet.

Customer Comments: I got a puppy from Petland. I named him Grady. Great dog he makes me laugh all the time. He is very affectionate. He makes life a little less hectic.

Mary B.

Customer Comments: Almost 3 years ago I bought my first dog Chopper. He is a shitzu bichan mix and I must say he's the best dog ever! He always brightens my day and picks me up when I'm feeling down. He really is such a great friend and every one else seems to think so too! Since he's a small dog it's easy to take him on car rides and to friends' houses. He also loves going for long walks and runs with me on nice days. I guess what I love most about him is that he always makes me happy and he's always happy to see me.

Theresa A.

Shen K.

Customer Comments: Cowboy AKA Cow Kitty. Cowboy is a white cat with black spots. He actually is the best cat I have ever had. He shows human-like affection. He has to touch you. Not only touch he will curve his paw to hold you. He always wants attention but if you can't give attention at the time he just waits. honestly best cat ever!

Myra G.

Customer Comments: I bought Margot, my miniature schnauzer from Petland a year ago. In just that short amount of time she has become my best friend #1 snuggle buddy and running partner. Making her a part of my family is one of the best decisions I have ever made!

Dean S.

Customer Comments: I have gotten 3 Blue Ram Cichlid from Petland. They have improved my life because watching them relaxes me. I enjoy watching them interact. It is an easy way for me to spend time.


Customer Comments: I have 4 puppies from Petland! They are usually the best part of my day. they are always there to pick up my spirits when I've had a bad day. I don't think a day has gone by when they have not done something that makes me laugh out loud. some days that's as simple as Lady (4lbs) walking right up to Blair (45lbs) and snatch the bone he has been chewing on. Other days it's as intense as Riley playing in the mud at the dog part. Every day brings something new, but it's always a barrel of laughs.

Page S.

Customer Comments: I have two boxers from Petland! Duke is a little over a year old and Maverick just turned one last week! they are the joys in my life :) Duke always knows how to brighten my day when I haven't had a good one, and Maverick never ceases to put a huge smile on my face! I love them both very much. I don't know what I would do without them I can't imagine a greater joy than being around my amazing puppies! thanks Petland!

Kylie T.

Customer Comments: I got a Shiranian (shit-tsu pomeranian) mix. Everyday that I come home froma  long day of school or from a long day at work, my dog is happy to see me. Every time I come home it brightens up my day.

P. Brooks

Customer Comments: I have purchased many many many saltwater fish, corals and live rock from many different Petlands. In fact I am always on the lookout for something new and cool to put in my tank I travel a lot, but when I come home it is soooo relaxing to just sit and watch all of my saltwater babies. This tank is part of me and I would be a little less empty without it. Thank you Petland for teaching me about saltwater fish and how to take care of them. I have learned so much and it has enriched my life.
