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.
Everyone is very helpful at your store and you have all the best brands that I want for my two dogs. From buying my pups to shopping there for them it’s always a great experience. The staff is always so polite and helpful and suggests the best items for my dogs. Thank you.
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 purchased our last two puppies from Lynbrook Shake a paw. We purchase all of our food and toys from their continuously and find them to be very attentive and professional. The puppies are doing great!
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.
I can't imagine going anywhere else to get what I need for my pups. We brought them home from the Hicksville store in April and have been back a ton of times since. Every staff member I've encountered is great!!! Anthony, James, Chris; the whole gang at this store, all amazing and super helpful. Thanks everyone!!!
Everytime I go into Shake a Paw for my puppy’s supplies, I am always greeted by the employees (I wish I can remember her name). They are also really helpful in finding what I need. They even follow up with how my puppy is doing. I highly recommend!
Thanks to Anthony and Kyle for helping me out. They answer all my questions, and explain everything well! I got my first husky a year ago, so I went to find a boyfriend for my girl husky. Now they love each other! Thanks again. You guys rock!
We stop by the Lynbrook store quite often as we have purchased a dog from them in the past. We are looking for a new puppy. Tina is very knowledgeable. Hopefully we will find our new fur ever friend soon at Shake A Paw in Lynbrook.
This is the best place to buy an animal. I got my little Daisy from here. She was healthy and pretty as can be. I recommend all looking for a new addition to the family to stop by and give them a chance. Excellent store!
Had a great experience with the purchase of my guinea pig for my children. After a day being home the water dispenser I purchased was leaking and they were very helpful and gave me a new one. They provided me and my kids with everything I needed to care for the animal and educated us on what to expect.
Our experience in buying a Havachon was good at Shake A Paw Puppies. Anthony brought us two adorable dogs and allowed us time with them in a private space. He answered our questions with appropriate knowledge and to the best of his ability. He reviewed, quickly all of the information we would need to care for Louie. Anthony helped us pick out appropriate accessories for our new pet, Louie. Anthony reviewed all of the paperwork needed.
Shake a Paw Hicksville - I am satisfied with Shake a Paw and bought my furry friend a while back and was very happy with the customer service and help to find the right buddy for me and love the selection of designer dogs that I can't really find anywhere else. For example, I got my Pomsky there and you guys did a great job helping me and giving me information.
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The store was extremely clean. We were able to sit and play with our new puppy without feeling rushed. Our new puppy had his forever home, and was extremely healthy. The first week we had to go to the first well visit with their vet, we were so happy with their chose. The office was clean and staff friendly, we would of love to return there but was too far from our home. Overall experience was amazing and we love our puppy Spike!!!
Dog was taken from her mother too soon and she has puppy anxiety. Now her both knees have to have a operation. At 7 months old. I paid over 3,000.00 dollars for her. She was born in Another state and it must have been a puppy mill. He has to be shut down. No one these days has money to spend like that. We love our pet and we are heartbroken. I have a sick husband and I am sick myself. My children got us the dog for happiness not to have trouble with it.
I would definitely recommend Shake A Paw to our friends and family, The store is very clean and staff is very friendly and eager to help. Anthony was exceptionally knowledgeable and very helpful. There are so many precious dogs to choose from. It's hard to walk out with getting one.
I really want to thank both James and Micaela for the best service. I purchased 2 Jack Russell from this store in Hicksville and are 100% satisfied. My girl, Daisybelle is 15 and my boy, Finnegan is 5. James is fun, friendly and full of information and Michaela is sweet, very helpful and informative.
They have a great selection of dog breeds, with different ages and types. It's worth it just to see the puppies because of the amazing variety. I got a Shiba Inu puppy, Hachie, there at about 10 weeks old in June 21. (I was so curious of his peculiarly amazing/well-behaved temperament so I got his 5 generation pedigree from AKC and found out he has a bunch of Champion bloodlines.) I love/appreciate that they give health insurance for about a month when you get a puppy there. Puppies are fragile and it can be stressful for their health moving place to place from the breeder to the store and ultimately to their forever home.
Shake A Paw knows this and they have been helpful and assuring since day one when I got my puppy. They went through everything with me, guiding me on the care of Hachie. They told me what to expect, what might/could happen, and what to do when it does. They also have a one year health guarantee on the puppy from conditions that might develop on the time frame. I would also like to mention price tags; there have been mentions of them being pricey but ultimately they're not; they have assurances/guarantees when you buy a pet from them and they're prices are within range of purebred puppies in the northeast.
I purchased my new puppy in June 2017. I went back and forth to Shake A Paw Lynbrook several times, each time Chris was so happy to see me and ever so patient with me. I did not know what I wanted to purchase. Since my husband passed away I was very confused if I really wanted a puppy. Well Chris should be recognized for his outstanding help, consideration, devotion and loving care he gave to me. I finally walked in in June and he walked me to the new puppies that just came in and there she was, he stood with me the whole time I was bonding with her then he graciously made sure that I had everything I needed for my new life with my new love, and love her I do.
Chris told me that she somehow will fill the empty void and quietness in my home after I leave my kids and grandchildren, when the door closes and I am alone she is there to comfort me - well we comfort each other. I also go down to Shake A Paw for all my supplies for my little one, because he makes it so easy to get exactly what I need for her. Shake A Paw is blessed to have him as an employee and I/we are blessed to have him in our lives as a part of our family. Thank you Chris from the bottom of our hearts. Keep up the good work. PS, my son also purchased a puppy over the past year and Chris was there to help him also.
