    Online store is an amazzzzing idea.

    Check out lovelonglong.com

    The name is ridiculous, it's an american company that ships from china, but they do GREAT wholesale and reseller prices. I bought a lead from them and had no problems with anything.

    I'm against birds being sold, simply because of the disgusting smell that seems to go with them.

    Would you allow owner to bring pet into the store with them?

    what do you mean? their own pets? for a visit or to sell to me? i guess the answer to both is no. (if i had animals in the store which we have decided against anyway with all the great advice)
    retorically speaking if we had animals in the store no i would not buy animals off anyone for obvious reasons, and no i wouldnt allow them to bring their own pets into the store due to contamination of the animals in the store if theirs happened to have something wrong with them-who can tell.

    But having said this we wont be having animals in the store- if all goes ahead, so i suppose i wouldnt be against this. Especially since i will be having grooming as part of the business, ill need the pets in the store to do this, and measuring and things is better if the pet is in store for things like collars, coats etc.
    Always good to have a "local friends" wall with picks of peoples dogs wearing the merchandise we carry too!

    Petstock doesn't sell animals but they do allow you to bring your dog in with you, and they have hydrobaths you can use while you're there. Vinyl floors go a long way I suppose.

    Our local pet store encourages people to bring their own dogs.

    They have floor scales set up in the dog food section which is a nice idea.

    There is a pet warehouse round the corner from me, we went there to buy a fighter fish I believe. Anyway, we took Ruby with us and they told us we weren't aloud to bring her in..

    Me being stubbern I grabbed Ruby's leash and stormed off to the car (Leaving with a few choice words for them) leaving the other half standing there with two kids looking very embarrassed

    Have you thought of getting in touch with local rescue groups and having a list of available pets ? When people ask about buying a pet you can point them to the appropriate places.
    I'm sure I've heard of a pet shop acting selling for a rescue group but can't remember where it was, I will try to find it for you.

    Melbourne pet retailer stops selling cats and dogs - provides rehoming/adoption facilities // Where do puppies come from?
    It's an old link but you'll get what I was talking about. Just something else to think about.

    I feel very sorry for the siamese fighting fish males. They have a very sad short life.
