Does Petland Let You Play With Puppies?

Is Petland a good place to buy puppies?

Petland stores boast being one of the most reputable breeders in the industry and one of the safest places to buy a puppy. The company standards go well above and beyond government and industry standards, and Petland doesn’t mind paying additional costs to maintain the highest-quality care for its animals.

What does Petland do with puppies that don’t sell?

As with other unsold inventory, they go on sale. Stores buy puppies for a fraction of what they charge their customers. If the puppy still doesn’t sell, stores will often cut their losses and give puppies away to employees, friends or rescue groups.

Is it OK to buy a dog from Petland?

Yes. The dogs that are sold in pet stores like Petland are from puppy mills. Responsible dog owners boycott these stores, in hopes of putting puppy mills out of business. Petco and Petsmart both host adoptable pets from local shelters.

How old do you have to be to play with puppies?

Puppies begin to play with objects at between 4 and 5 weeks. It’s important to introduce balls and other toys and safe objects to puppies during this period, since puppies learn specific play habits at an early age. By 8 to 12 weeks of age, you should introduce your puppy to the concept of fetch.
