James & Kevin were extremely helpful in providing the best service possible. They were very knowledgeable on the care of my new puppy. They provided many tips to ensure my puppy would be happy and healthy. I visited many pet stores to find the perfect dog for me. I can’t thank James & Kevin enough for helping me and finding my forever friend

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.

Got my precious Miniature Schnauzer from there and I couldn’t be happier. The staff there was so patient and helpful to me. They gave me lots of information to help me take care of my pup. Every time I go there to pick up some treats, I always feel welcomed. I would highly recommend them if you're looking for a new furry friend.

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.

I purchased my Shetland Sheepdog August 2019. He has been in excellent health when I bought him and still today. The staff was great. Spencer is so smart sweet loving and supportive. He is fully house-trained. He did it in two weeks. Today he is a service support dog. You can never ask for a better dog. I plan on purchasing a female shelty for him as a companion. And again from Shake A Paw in Hicksville.

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.

Shake A Paw Puppies response

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.

I bought a cocker spaniel from the Shake A Paw in Hicksville. He just turned a year. I am so happy with him! Anytime I go back to the store for any advice or purchases, everyone is so helpful and they are so happy to see the dog!

I bought a cocker spaniel in Nov 2018. He is now 1 year and the the best & cutest dog. As I return back to the store for advice, food or toys the employees are helpful and so happy to see the dog. So happy with my furry friend and my decision to buy from Shake A Paw in Hicksville.

I bought two chihuahuas from Shake A Paw in Lynbrook last October. Both chihuahuas are very healthy. My experience with Shake A Paw was great. I highly recommend Shake A Paw to anyone looking for a dog.

I recently bought a Cocker Spaniel puppy at Shake A Paw in Hicksville. I had a wonderful experience with all the workers and any questions or concerns I had about my puppy were always answered with a smile. I can't say enough about the positive experience I had buying a dog from them and I get so much joy from this beautiful dog!

This is my second purchase from Shake a Paw. I've never had any issues with them and they have always been accommodating. Because I was a previous buyer they gave me a discount plus the discount from the coupon. They had a variety of puppies to choose from but I went in knowing what I wanted. I would definitely recommend them to a friend or relative.

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.
