It's like the closest you wish you had 10/17/2009

While not a HUGE store, they seem to have everything you would want and yet the store is not overwhelming. The owner Taz and her staff are extremely, extremely helpful with suggestions, listing to questions/problems and just being great animal people. Store delivers and the groomers are great. Pros: Fabulous inventory, extremely helpful staff Cons: none more

Hand Stripping for Terriers 2/7/2009

Looking for the best hand stripper or terriers in town? Then ask for Angie at Petropolis. I have been bringing my 3 year old border terrier to Angie since he was 10 months old. She has made what could be a potentiallyl stressful grooming experience into a manageable situation. She is kind, gentle, and Augge always comes out looking like he is ready to walk in the show ring. We moved away from the area and tried one other groomer...and immediately came back to Angie even though it is quite hard for us get there. She's worth it! more

Great Grooming Job 12/29/2008

If you want a good groomer go to Petropolis. I brought my Irish Setter to Angie one of the groomers and she did a great job. My dog came out with her beautiful red coat shiny and soft. Her ears were cut just the right length and her coat flowed perfectly. more

Finally found a great dog groomer! 12/19/2008

Until the groomers at Petropolis starting giving my dog a bath, I would have to change groomers every few months because nobody could handle him. One groomer suggested that I sedate him before a bath, which I refused to do. The groomers at Petropolis clean and dry my dog so well that he smells clean for weeks. They are not only able to give him a bath (and I can only imagine put up with his incessant whining), with seemingly no trouble, but they cut his nails! Yay! My guy is very happy to go with the groomer each time she takes him in, so he must love it there. Everyone at Petropolis, including the groomer I've met, is extremely kind and understanding. We are very happy with all of the services (including stocking the dog food and snacks we use and suggesting remedies when my guy is ailing) at Petropolis. And my three year old loves to visit the store, too! Pros: Pet experts Cons: none I can think of more


Fabulous Dog Grooming 12/18/2008

Angie the dog groomer at Petropolis gave my two shih tzu dogs fantastic haircuts. I love the way she consulted with me before she cut their hair. She listened to what I needed and also made good suggestions on what was best for my dogs. My dogs are hair dogs and they mat up very easily. Angie recommended keeping their hair short, but was able to cut their hair in such a way that they were able to maintain that cute fluffly look I love so much. In addition, Angie is a very caring and humane person who loves animals and gives them lots of personal attention. She treated my dogs with sensitivity, respect and kindness. As a result, my dogs don't fear going to her for haircuts. Petropolis is great store. They also offer low cost health clinics for dogs. more

By Far,The Best, Most Caring, Animal Loving Store in the City! 10/11/2008

I have 2 dacshunds and Petropolis is by far the best organic and green friendly pet store in the City. Tazz and her staff are always Knowledgeable about their products and are very passionate about the types of food and products offered to their clients. I had always given my dogs mainstream dog food until they explained the benefits of natural/organic food and the importance of encorporating vegetables into their dried food. Pros: Quality Food, Knowledgeable Staff. Clean Store. Affordable. Always in Stock of my favorite Items Cons: NA more

If you love your dog, find a different groomer 10/8/2008

Pros: this store has great dog toys at prices that seem reasonable for the city. Pros: Selection of toys Cons: Grooming was torture and overpriced, Bad customer service, Not very sanitary more

GREATEST PET SUPPLY BOUTIQUE EVER 9/20/2008

I almost don't know where to start with my compliments for Petropolis. I never shop anywhere else because as a dog owner and lover, this is EXACTLY the kind of store that I want in my neighborhood and I want to give 100% of my business to this wonderful establishment. Anyone who has been in the store will know the owner - Tazz - who is the most genuine animal lover I've ever come across. Her passion for animals is evidenced by her extensive knowledge (which is great for us first-time doggie parents) and her refusal to carry any non-healthy, mass produced foods and products. Other dog owners that I've met in Battery Park and along the promenade also swear by Tazz and Petropolis as it is a haven for those who love their animals and want only the best for their furry friends. When I say "the best" please do not confuse this for "the most expensive" because that could not be further from the truth. Sure, natural and healthy food is not going to be the same price as Alpo, but if you care about your dog's health and well-being you wouldn't feed your dog grocery-store brands anyway. Even the big chains (i.e. Petco) are beginning to embrace the natural, holistic brands but - contrary to what you may think - the prices for the "good stuff" are higher at Petco than at Petropolis! As for products like leashes and toys, I'm always amazed at how reasonably priced these items are at Petropolis. I found the EXACT SAME faux-croc print harness-leash combo: Trixie & Peanut - $79, Petropolis - $30!! I couldn't believe it. A few years ago I bought one of those "gentle spray" barking collars at Petco for $180.... just saw it at Petropolis for $80! I asked Tazz about it and her stance is that she refuses to take advantage of her customers, just because this is Manhattan and people are used to price inflation. She truly is amazing and this is reflected by her fabulous store. Owning a small business is hard work and I want to see Petropolis here for years to come. Pros: Well managed, friendly and helpful staff, healthy food, personal service, meticulous grooming, great selection, reasonable prices Cons: hmmm..... can't think of ANY! more

Good food horrible service and grooming 8/3/2008

I moved into the neighborhood from the UWS about 4 months ago. I enjoyed visiting petropolis to buy food and treats for my dog from time to time. So I figured I would try out the groomers. My parents were coming into town and I wanted my dog bathed (i.e. smelling fresh for their visit). I booked the appointment about a week in advance. However when I arrived I was told they were running behind. They took my dog almost 2 hours after the schedule time. I told them I was going to go shopping but to call me when my dog was done. I never received a call. When I returned he was sitting in a crate much too small for him and I was told he had been there for about half an hour. When I asked why they hadn't called, the woman at the front desk got very rude and told me "this is not my job". Additionally, I was appalled by the price. They charged me $60 for a bath and when I didn't tip the groomer and front desk woman definitely gave me the look like I was low class. Now I don't know if the prices are this high, but in the UWS I can get a groom and a bath for $60. more

Amazing downtown pet store with quality products and friendly service 6/30/2008

In the past few years I?ve had the good fortune of living near Petropolis. In addition to carrying a large selection of healthy food, treats, toys and supplies for my pet, Tazz the owner is a very enthusiastic, accommodating and knowledgeable expert to consult with regarding any issue. She truly loves what she does and it is evident in the quality of the products in her store. Petropolis also offers grooming services which are based on the individual needs of your pet as well as seminars on a variety of topics. It is a true pleasure to visit this store and I highly recommend Petropolis to anyone who loves their animal. more

Taz was quick to correct 4/24/2008

I had a previous issue with a nail clipping appointment and Taz took care of it right away. Very pleased with the customer service. more

Knowledgeable staff of animal lovers 11/14/2007

One evening after work about a year ago I met Taz the owner of Petropolis. I was walking home and spotted a baby pigeon that was barely breathing. After placing my bags down and making a call to a local vets office who warned me not to touch the bird I did not know what to do. It still had life in it and was in the middle of a parking garage. A man at the garage mentioned to me that there was a woman who came by who had a pet store and perhaps she could help. He went down the street and returned with Taz and within a short time Taz came back with a friend, a ladder and container to place the baby bird in. She located a nest from which the baby fell and climbed the ladder to greatness!!! She was able to place the bird in the container by the nest and save this birds life. Yes she did of course go back up the ladder to make sure the bird was free to continue and happily climbed down the ladder with an empty container. And yes during the 40 minutes plus of this experience the birds breathing improved! Wonderful I thought what a special person this woman is. Taz as well as the rest of the staff are knowledgeable and have a sincere love for our furry friends. The store has a variety of nutritious food and supplements. My two cats are healthier and happier after following dietary changes advised by Taz. Petropolis also has grooming services. Angie is a fantastic groomer and also has a special way with the animals. I highly recommend Petropolis ..you too will be impressed! Pros: A knowledgeable staff of animal lovers Cons: some scaffolding and construction around the store which makes it a little hard to find. more

Great Groomer 11/7/2007

Angie's the best groomer ever and Taz knows everything about every product in there. I moved to New Jersey and I STILL go there. Pros: Lots to choose from, great staff Cons: You do have to find your way through the construction (totally worth it tho) more

It is like a pet wonderland! 10/18/2007

You definitely want to go to Petropolis. The store is very inviting and well planned. Tazz, the owner, knows everything about nutrition and health for all animals. On her advice, I changed the food I was giving my dog. We no longer have to worry about tummy aches and running outside at 3am. He is healthy and happy. His coat is shinier and he is acting like a puppy again. He races for the food bowl at dinner time - and I think he is in love with Tazz. While my dog has short hair and doesn't need to be trimmed I still take him there to get a bath from Angie (the groomer). She loves all of the animals who come into her grooming area. My dog gets a bath and a strong blower. I can't tell you how great it is during shedding season. Normally I would have piles of hair everywhere in the house. But with the blower there is very little around. It lasts about two weeks, then we are back in the store. It is wonderful. I am sure that my vacuum loves it as well. Additionally, the selection of toys is great, as are the homeopathic treatments that are available. If Tazz doesn't have what you need then you probably don't need it! Occasionally Tazz also holds classes in her store. I have learned about everything from CPR for dogs to wound care. It is a great resource and I feel much better knowing that I can help my dog, while getting him to the hospital, if (god forbid) anything happens. Definitely go to this store (the prices are excellent) but be prepared to carry out some big bags - there is such a great selection! Pros: Great selection, knowledgeable staff, friendly service, excellent quality and service Cons: None that I can think of more

Great Pet Shop! 10/6/2007

Petropolis is a gem of a pet shop in downtown NYC. They have a great selection of food, toys, treats, etc. and the owner Taz is a warm, wonderful source of info for pet owners. I've also had my dog groomed here and they did a fabulous job (and he's not easy to deal with). I'd definitely recommend stopping in if you have a dog or cat and live or work in the neighborhood. more

The best pet supply store and groomer in NYC!!! 9/27/2007

If you are looking for the best nutritional diet for your dog or cat....this store has the best organic and natural foods in the entire city. The owner and staff are very knowledgeable and can advise you of what type of diet your pet should follow based on any number of health issues, internal and external. They also supply a bevy of holistic remedies to aid your pet from itchy skin to a bad tummy ache!! Looking for a groomer that will not shave your Pomeranian bald or give your Maltese a poodle cut...then see Angie!. The best groomer is at Pertropolis. She also has a knack for trimming your pooches nails and cleaning his ears without a peep. That's talent! In additional to nutrition and grooming, they offer a great selection of walking tools, toys, clothes, beds, carriers...and much more. Is your little boy pulling you down the block to chase a leaf....then ask them to fit your pup to the appropriate harness to eliminate your daily shoulder aches and pains. Did i mention their LARGE selection of heathy treats? YUMM....My little dude can't wait to see what tasty morsel i bring home from there, but he prefers to sniff around and pick one out for himself. This store has it ALL. Everything you need to keep your pet healthy and happy! what more do you want from them....to pick up poo too? maybe not them, but they will provide you with local dog walkers for that. Put down that pupperoni stick and get down there now for an all natural treat for your pet now. Pros: The best nutritional food supply, delivery service, knowledgeable staff Cons: hard to find it behind the scaffolding...its there keep looking. more
