First time buying a puppy, was easy and fast, many breeds, mixes and ages of dogs to choose from, workers very nice, my helper Tina made the process understandable and easy. Also provides a mini supply and accessories for your puppy. Big place, surprised.
We had a wonderful experience and Michael was an outstanding and knowledgeable point person. He answered all our questions and was patient when we called back for more help. Our new addition came to us in perfect condition and highly recommend Shake A Paw.
I really had a wonderful experience at Shake A Paw in Lynbrook purchasing my beautiful fur baby Bailey. Everyone was so pleasant and friendly especially Tina. The store was extremely clean. I would definitely purchase another fur baby there in the future. Go back often for products for my love.
Going to Shake-a-Paw for the first time for my first pet it was honestly a wonderful experience, Ed and Tina are the best they explained everything to me in a very respectful way and you can really see their passion for all the pets and the customers. 5 stars for me!!!
6/30/20. Tina assisted us in finding our Golden Retriever puppy. She was patient and knowledgeable. She provided us with many options. The staff also assisted us with carrying everything around the corner for car service pick up. Prices are a little high, but service is outstanding. Mahalo Tina.
Ed & Tina helped me get a beautiful baby girl puppy. She is a such a good girl. And I love the fact that I chose to get her from this place because it was first love at sight. Thank you so much for having this place.
Our experience was an awesome one. We love our puppy. She is so cute and lovable. Dylan made sure our process in buying the dog was easy and the process went well. We were given all of her information and most of all she was already chipped so I didn't have to worry about that expense at a later time.
Shake A Paw's reputation will go down in history as the WORST pet store on Long Island. Within a week of buying my puppy I brought her to her first vet visit and they told me she had a heart murmur. 5 weeks later she was hospitalized breathing only with oxygen as her lungs were filled with fluid. She died at just 15 weeks, yes 15 weeks. Their own recommended veterinarian/animal hospitals BOTH told me the store knowingly sold me a dog with cardiogenic pulmonary edema who ultimately died from heart failure. Countless vets certified the dog was unfit for sale and their animal hospitals see dogs die from their store on a regular basis.
If you're thinking of buying a pet from this store or the one in Hicksville check out the MANY beware of SCAM articles that have been written recently **. ALL explaining they are known to sell sick dogs. No one should ever have to lose a pet and be told by medical professionals. SHAKE A PAW HAS NO BUSINESS SELLING DOGS. Store owner Jake who mentioned he'd been in the business of selling dogs for 30 years flat out told me, "Tough luck getting anything more than an apology out of us. That's how we make the money". Shame on you Shake a Paw.
This review is 100% percent a lie and we have the proof to back it up by the Licencesed Veterinarians that took care of this puppy. The puppy was sold on March 21, 2020. This puppy was deemed healthy on numerous occasions and even several days before the puppy passed away by the customers own Veterinarian when the puppy was given another set of puppy vaccinations. The puppy choked on something and was rushed to the hospital, we have proof that this has nothing to due with the store.Please remove
We are so ecstatic with our Shih Tzu puppy we got from Shake A Paw in Hicksville. She is perfect in every way and an extremely loving animal. We are first time puppy owners so we needed a lot of help and attention. The staff there is terrific and we dealt primarily with Alexia and Mottaela. They helped us get all of the necessary equipment and explained what we needed to do with feeding, crating and training her to become housebroken. Since this has been such a positive experience we wanted to share it with others. We highly recommend Shake A Paw in Hicksville because they are knowledgeable, caring and patient.
On 7/27/19, we placed a $300 deposit for what we were told is a hypoallergenic dog, a cavapoo puppy at Shake A Paw Lynbrook, NY. The salesperson advised $300 is the minimum they would take to hold the puppy our daughter fell in love with. We visited multiple times while the dog was getting its shots and being made ready to be picked up. Our 4-yr-old son was having allergic reactions while our 8-yr old daughter was fine. We thought that perhaps it was just the number of dogs in the store and the dander that can be seen on the floor and in the air and the fact they clean up after the dogs with only paper towel rather than any cleaning agents. Our son was tested 8/2 and was confirmed allergic.
After considering our options and speaking with his pediatrician, we informed them 8/6 and the dog was sold by 8/13. They refused to refund the $300 deposit stating they would apply our deposit to a hypoallergenic dog, which does not help since our son had the allergic reaction to the cavapoo. We bought over $550 worth of supplies from the store (which they refunded). I spoke to the manager Kristen who said she would call me back in 10 minutes about a refund. I had to call her again 5 days later. She refused to allow me to speak with whoever she asked about the refund when we initially spoke and hung up on me when I said I would be filing a complaint saying not to threaten her.
