I had heard all the warnings from the animal activists about how horrible it was for anyone to buy a puppy from a pet store. Well, I am not one to be swayed by those who take extreme positions and seek to force everyone else to follow them. I purchased a wonderful puppy from Puppies of Westport and the entire experience was spectacular. From great advice on what breed to buy, to superb direction on housebreaking and training, to giving me their cell numbers (which I may have overused a bit) for any questions that might arise- they have been great. If you are considering purchasing a puppy, you would be making a huge mistake if you didn’t head right for Puppies of Westport.
We will definitely recommend you to everyone without any hesitation!
Puppies of Westport is a great place to buy a puppy. We adore the toy poodle we got there and we recommend them to anyone looking to get a puppy.
We purchased our cockapoo from puppies of Westport 3 years ago. She came home healthy and has been a wonderful addition to our family. The staff has been very friendly, we were just looking the other day and they were very friendly and very helpful
Puppies of Westport is the best! I had visited at least 6 other pet stores before visiting them and I could not believe how different this store was. I had also visited a few professional breeders and the experience felt like I was trying to get my daughter into some exclusive private school!
I don t live that close but it was more than worth the trip. They had a great selection of happy and well adjusted puppies and answered every question I had. They know a lot about puppies and were very helpful in explaining the pros and cons of different breeds for meand my family. My daughter loves this place and she has actually made me take her back just to visit this store, the employees and the new puppies. It is so sad that there are people who try to smear this store when a quick look at all of the negative comments reveal that none of these people bought a puppy here and most never even set foot in the store! My daughter keeps trying to convince me to get a friend for her puppy and when I finally cave in there is absolutely no other place that I will go. Visit them and you will see it for yourself.
Puppies of Westport is a terrific place to get a puppy. I did and I'm thrilled. They did everything right and I've had several positive contacts with my pup's breeder. A small group of misguided activists have been carrying on a malicious campaign against this store that began before they even opened five years ago- they apparently have nothing better to do. The posting below from Scott M. is a perfect example of the tactics of these radicals. I called Puppies of Westport to ask if they had purchased dogs from the breeder he referred to. Turns out they got just two dogs from Robert Laurance after getting false information about his kennel. They investigate every breeder and follow up on all information and in this case, they checked on him and immediately severed all ties. Luckily, both puppies were healthy, but they said they were prepared to do anything necessary for them and acknowledge their error. THAT WAS FOUR YEARS AGO! They have never received a puppy from this breeder since and never will even though he claims that his kennel issues are behind him. What the activists fail to say is that Robert laurance continues to ship hundreds of dogs to pet stores all over the northeast to this day. The second reviewer acknowledges getting a Robert Laurance dog this year from a pet store in Massachusetts- NOT FROM PUPPIES OF WESTPORT. Over the last eighteen months, the USDA has begun publishing all kennel inspection reports going back three years. This has allowed Puppies of Westport to investigate the record of every breeder they use. I am told that they will no longer deal with any breeder that has had any negative inspections- and that this actually eliminates two thirds of all the licensed breeders out there! A check on breeders used by most other pet stores in a fifty mile radius reveals that other stores have not been following the example set by Puppies of Westport. I just don't understand why this small group has decided to keep trashing Puppies of Westport when they deserve to be applauded for all threy have done to insure that their customers receive the finest puppies and a most positive puppy buying experience. Don't allow the crazies to keep you from checking out this wonderful business!
Monty and Lauren dedicate their lives to taking care of these dogs. they take better care of the dogs in the store than half the people treat their dogs at home. there not a normal pet store every dog is out of their cage getting excersise numerous times a day and Marta works so hard to make sure their health is up to date along with south Wilton vet clinic who works side by side with Monty and Lauren. i myself have seen them come in at six am on Christmas just to make a child's dream come true. two innocent people who dedicate their lives to loving these sweet puppies.
I have always had at least one dog. I have adopted and rescued, purchased from a pet store and from a breeder and I've even had a litter of my own pups. So when I learned that my 9 year old beloved chocolate lab had cancer I was crushed. After several rounds of chemo, it bacame clear that we had to put Bentley to sleep. I was torn between taking some time to mourn and quickly finding a new friend. I had driven past Puppies of Westport a lot but never went in. I decided that this was the time for me to check them out. I found that they were more like a breeder than a pet store. They obviously care a great deal about their puppies as well as their customers. It turned out that the owner had trecently lost her 9 year old Vizsla to cancer and we ended sharing a good cry- we were quite a sight! Everyone was really understanding and I felt absolutely no pressure to buy a puppy. It ended up taking a few visits but I ended up with a terrific golden doodle who will not replace Bentley, but I sure do love him. The store made what could have been a difficult process a truly pleasant one. They know what they're doing and they do it well. If you are thinking about bringing a new puppy into your home, you'd be crazy to go anywhere other than Puppies of Westport!
ive been in puppies of westport many times and i know that all of the animals are well taken care of. the crates are kept spotless by a large crew of people and well exercised. in the morning all of the dogs are let out to play with eachother and i see throughout the day the staff walking the dogs outside of the store.
I bought a morkie (Maltese Yorkie)from Puppies of Westport 8 months ago and she has been the best addition to my family. She was extremely healthy and is the sweetest, cutest puppy out there. The staff at Puppies of Westport was so helpful and kind and has been there when i have had any questions at all. I would definitely recommend puppies of Westport to anyone who was looking for a dog. The staff is so knowledgeable and will only sell you the right dog for you and your family.
