We were looking to buy a bunny and since it was our first pet, we had loads of questions and the staff was really helpful!! Especially a worker named Emily who helped us through all the way! She made the experience really amazing and easy.

During my experience in Shake A Paw the workers were so helpful when I was picking out the fifth member of my family. My new dog Stella. They were so helpful and helped me find the perfect dog that me and my family wanted. They let me sit in rooms alone with different dog to find the perfect one. I’m so happy I went to shake a paw to get my beautiful dog Stella.

I got my Goldendoodle puppy from Shake a Paw and had no issues with the puppy and purchasing him was easy and exciting! They took care of him and made sure he was groomed, feed and healthy before he came he came to his new home. He came home healthy and stayed healthy. They were very helpful and would recommend purchasing a puppy from them.

My husband found our short-haired dachshund Molly on the Shake-A-Paw website. He and my daughter surprised me with the visit to the store, which is an awesome presentation in its surroundings. My favorite area in the store was the puppy display. There were so many varieties of dogs to chooses from. The dogs all looked to be well fed, happy and clean. I would highly recommend the Hicksville Shake-A-Paws store to friends and family members searching for quality puppies at decent pricing.

First let me just say I've never had such a great experience in my life. Chris, who sold me my love Chloe, was an amazing, respectful, humorous and blunt man! He told it how it was, and was amazing! Thank you Chris!!!

Dogs are akc certified. Very clean and organized place to shop for a puppy. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Help me picked up supplies after I bought my puppy since I was the first time owner of a puppy. Very patient customer service every time I go back to shop. Everybody in the store says hi to my puppy since they still remember him. Haha. All in all, if any of my friends looking for a pet I’d recommend them to take a look at this place before they make a decision. Below is my cutie pie. He is 3.5 month old now.

I wanted to write a review to tell people about my experience at Shake A Paw. It started with just a trip to shake a paw to see the puppies. We were greeted by Bryan who was extremely helpful, friendly and a pleasure to talk to. He introduced us to a Mini Australian Shepard who we fell in love with immediately and decided to purchase. We then met James the manager was also extremely nice, helpful and a pleasure to interact with. My experience was 5 star and I recommend shake a paw to anyone looking to bring home a new member of the family!!

Wow great place to buy a puppy!! Brian was so great helping us with our purchase. He helped us with all our questions. They even said we can call any time while they are open to ask for help. If your looking to buy a dog please try them first if not see them before you buy. Really are friendly and helpful.

Purchased our fourth dog recently and the experience was quick and easy. The staff treated us well and was helpful with our questions. We were able to purchase all the supplies we needed and whenever we go in they continue to be very helpful and insightful.

It’s a wonderful place to go, my friend and I went there and she fell in love instantly. It’s a wonder establishment to go to. They have my blessing. The workers are very kind and they teach you everything you need to know about your dog.

Adopted a 4 month old mini dachshund, she's been everything we've wanted and more. Her dewclaw was incorrectly removed, and Shake a Paw paid for its removal. They recommended a wonderful vet, who we love. Side note - we went in every Saturday for several months simply to play with puppies before we found the perfect one. Shake a Paw was very patient with us during this process and helped us pick out the best puppy.

My girlfriend and I are in the market for a Puppy. After spending a decent amount of time in the Lynbrook store yesterday deciding which puppy we like best, my girlfriend asked to play with a puppy. We asked a male sales Rep which told us we had to ask another female sales rep. When the female sales rep approached us and we asked to play with the puppy, her response was “are you sure you really want to play with this puppy? They get sick very often so you probably shouldn’t.” I told her that we were seriously interested and finally she let my girlfriend play with the puppy. My girlfriend went in the booth with the puppy and I stood outside looking in. The female sales rep left and the male sales rep came over. I asked him how much a different puppy was and he looked at me and responded “a lot” which I was offended by.

I let the comment slide without saying anything, but then he began to make more demeaning comments which caught me off guard since we had no other previous interactions which would have brought about this behavior and my girlfriend and I were serious about bringing the dog home. At this point I was bothered by his comments so I responded “why wouldn’t you tell me how much the other dog was?”. He responded saying “because I know you wouldn’t have bought it”. At this point I was so bothered that I had my girlfriend give the dog back and we left the store and she was crying the whole way home because of the situation and how badly she wanted the puppy. This was unacceptable and unwarranted behavior by the sales rep and I hope that Shake A Paw fixes this problem.

We purchased our Basset Hound, Caramel, from Shake-A-Paw. Kez was friendly and very helpful. She made sure we had all the items we needed for Caramel. Caramel made a wonderful transition to his new home and sends many licks to Kez for her help.

We have had such wonderful experiences with your Hicksville Shake a Paw. We first went to Hicksville for a dog and bought a mastiff, then we returned a year later and got a Frenchie. Today James helped us again and we now have another Frenchie. Thank you for hiring such wonderful, knowledgeable and caring staff! It is nice to walk in and see the same friendly faces.

My girlfriend and I had made a short list of puppies that we thought would be a good fit for us and our apartment. The staff was very helpful and helped us make an informed decision about the best puppy for us. We ended up spending a number of hours with the puppy we picked and the staff answered lots of our questions and were very patient with us! He's very socialized and friendly, and it's obvious they take great care of the puppies. We recently went back to visit, and our puppy was so excited to see the staff!

I walked into Shake A Paw with my dog recently with the intent of finding a treat for my dog. They have an edited selection, as their focus is more on selling puppies than on being a pet supplies store. I was able to find a yummy treat for my dog, and the staff was very friendly to me and my dog.

The entire staff at Shake-A-Paw is fantastic. Most notably, Tina, a customer service rep, who works at Shake-A-Paw, greeted us and gave us thorough responses to our inquiries about the different dog breeds located at this store. I was very grateful and I look forward to making a purchase at her store.

This store is the best. Dominick gave us incredible service. He is so knowledgeable. Best salesman ever. James, the manager, could not have been nicer. I would recommend Shake A Paw in Hicksville to anyone with pet needs. We left another pet store, came here and got the most precious morki. This is a 5-star store. You will love it.

Best decision of a lifetime was going to Shake A Paw on a Sunday. We found our baby boy (Yorkie Poo) that my wife and I fell in love with. The Shake a Paw team members made it very easy for us to be approved and go home with our baby the next day. The Vet visits were covered as we were told and also received help from the crew in training. Thank You so much for making this decision memorable!!

We recently purchased our 10-week old Teddy Bear puppy from Shake a Paw. We had excellent service and the staff was very knowledgeable in getting us ready to take her home - Anthony was super helpful! They went over carefully her daily routine, what the first couple weeks would be like and supplied us with all the necessities she needed. I would recommend anyone looking for a puppy to stop by and chat with the staff! Great puppy selection, as well as other animals; i.e. cats, fish, rabbits.

I live in Lynbrook and have been to this store hundreds of times. Each time has been extremely positive experience. The staff is extremely nice and knowledgeable not only about all their puppies but all their products as well. Besides the super staff, the store itself is extremely clean and they are constantly cleaning out the puppy playpens. I went in today to return an item but couldn't find my receipt. Tina went above and beyond for such a little item - but that is customer service at its finest!!!

I have been going to Shake A Paw since they opened many years ago. I purchase all of my puppy (dog) supplies and food from them throughout the years. I have had the pleasure of dealing with Kathy (an employee) for several years now. She always greets me with a big smile and hello. She goes out of her way to assist with any supplies I need. While purchasing supplies, I usually take a few minutes to play and look at the many breeds of puppies on display that day. Most of the time they're on many types and different sizes and temperaments. There's nothing that can change a bad day to good more than the happiness shown from a puppy when you give them a little of your attention. They are very well taken care of by the entire staff.

I have never seen anything but a very clean, organized and well stocked store. One of the best things is it never smell of anything unsanitary. Not just because they obsessively clean the cages but they always have those great smelling candles lit within the store. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that needs or wants a new friend to add to their family or just needs supplies for their existing ones. Great store, puppies, and employees!

We bought Bailey here 7 years ago. He is beautiful and loving and healthy. Bailey is a unique looking mix breed and I got him at 8 weeks old. James helped me pick out his food and all his doggy needs and referred me to a vet. I had a great experience getting Bailey. I was allowed to play with him and knew right away he was the one.
