People were not very Helpful and everything i was told they didn't follow though with it. I'm very unhappy with this company.

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Larry - We are truly sorry for what sounds like a very frustrating experience and one that we never want a new puppy parent to have. Adding a puppy to your home should be a joyful experience and it's disappointing to know we let you down. Shortly after receiving your feedback, a member of our Client Services team was quick to reach out to learn more and see how we can do better in the future. It's valuable feedback from customers like you that helps us improve our process and continue to provide the level of service we strive for and will do whatever we can to make it right.

The quality of our puppy was excellent; travel chaperone and all aspects of delivery of puppy were excellent; definite disconnect regarding communication between breeder and PuppySpot! We were advised on three separate conversations that this puppy was POTTY TRAINED!! Puppy IS NOT potty trained at all and this would have been a deal breaker! Also it would’ve been good to know that there would be another $500 cost to receive microchip activation and other amenities. For these reasons is the 2-star review. Love the healthy puppy.

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Bill - We are proud to offer a transparent, trusted option for prospective puppy parents to add a furry family member to their home and want to assure you that you were never lied to by anyone on our team at any point in your relationship with PuppySpot. While some crate training and potty training had begun while with his breeder, like any puppy in a new environment, he may need time to get used to his surroundings. We have no doubt that with ongoing training and a bit of patience, your puppy will thrive in his new home We are also proud to offer each and every new PuppySpot puppy parent complimentary AKC registration or Canine Partners Listing, along with other helpful items like enrollment in AKC reunite, lifetime access to AKC events, and more. Our partner offers several additional optional items for purchase and we apologize for any confusion surrounding the price of these options. Our team is here for you any time you need us, whether it's questions about our partner offerings or simply advice for training and acclimating your puppy to your home.

PuppySpot review for Prince aka/BUBBY

Bubby is everything we had hoped for. He arrived safe and sound. The response from Paul was exceptional. The Puppyspot ap is a bit slow considering the time it takes to get questions answered. To date, I have had no contact with the breeder or anyone in Indiana where Bubby came from.

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Polly - Thanks very much for your feedback and for trusting us to help you find a furry family member from a screened and vetted responsible breeder. That said, we are always happy to connect our prospective puppy parents with their puppy's breeder via conference call before a puppy arrives and then more directly shortly after and we're disappointed to learn you did not know this was not an option. Your relationship with us began, it did not end, when we matched you with your puppy and we remain committed to nurturing our relationship throughout your puppy parent journey.

Ok experience ...

I can’t say it was amazing but it surely could have been better. Kinda feel like once the sale is made, they do as little as possible for the new owner. Questions that’s asked are not responded to and we kind of feel like they don’t care once they get our money. We were told they were sending us a puppypak which had a leash, bowls and toys in it. They charged us $179 for it and it was something that you can buy at your local Walmart for less than $50. They didn’t ask us if we wanted to purchase it, they told us they were sending it. Until my financing was calculated, I had no idea we were paying for it because we would have passed on that. I do have to admit they were very attentive via the phone when they thought they might lose the sale, our sales person called me 2-3 times a day until they received approved financing papers. I didn’t even know how much I was being approved for, only that they wanted $200 from me over what our financing was for. Sales sent me a link to pay the balance and then there was dead silence on the phone, I explained that I was at work and wouldn’t be able to do it right then. I was told that I’d likely lose the puppy I wanted if I didn’t do it right away. I was told my puppy was coming in from Minneapolis, but wasn’t told he started in Ohio first. Long flights for an 11 week old puppy by himself. If I had known I would have made arrangements to fly to Minneapolis to get him. On a positive note ... well, he’s a healthy, energetic puppy that fits in very well with our former family of 1 pup. I think my advice to future purchasers ... if you have to hunt them down for answers to your questions then it’s not the right deal for you.

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Yavette - First and foremost, we are thrilled your puppy arrived happy and healthy, as that is our main priority! We appreciate your candid feedback and we're sorry for what sounds like a really frustrating experience. We never want a puppy parent to feel the way you do which is why a member or team quickly reached out to you to learn more and see how we could help. Our team also offered to refund the unwanted pup pack in full upon receipt. Our relationship began when we matched you with your pup, it did not end, we will continue to be here for both of you as you need us!

Highly Recommend

My husband and I had been wanting a puppy for months. I finally stumbled upon PuppySpot and fell in love with one of the puppies. The people at PuppySpot were extremely accessible and incredibly helpful. i had more information, more tips and recommendations than I could have imagined. All of my questions were answered in a timely manner and my puppy arrived happy and healthy with the sweetest letter from her breeder. Her vet check came out glowing and she’s been the best little addition to our family! So glad we found PuppySpot and could not be more grateful for all their help through the process!

Such an easy process!!

From beginning to the arrival of my puppy, everyone was so professional and helpful. No matter how silly my questions I always got a quick response. because my puppy would have three plane changes to get here, they made sure she had an in cabin chaperone so she would be well taken care of!! After my puppy arrived, I received a call asking how things were going. What a surprise to know they weren’t just making a sale!!

A new Family Member

Our 13 year old Lab passed away about 3 weeks ago. After walking into an empty house. I began to look for a new puppy locally, calling breeders as my husband wanted another Lab. There were no puppies available locally so i started looking on line, never expecting to purchase a puppy without seeing it before hand.. I contacted puppy spot and our puppy concierge was wonderful providing assurance that they qualified all breeders and guaranteed that the puppy would be healthy. I picked out Lavender (aka Daisy) who arrived to us from Utah, last Saturday. Puppy spot kept us updated through her travels. ( She probably has more flyer miles than I do) until her arrival at Newark Liberty where we picked her up. Everything went well. Daisy is now a part of our family. I want to thank Puppy spot and all the people who made this happed. Dolores C.

Really disappointed

The first call to them was great, but once I'd paid for my puppy, it was downhill from there. If you are expecting a personal assistant as they advertise, forget that! It's whoever is available, and not always is someone available, either. After we welcomed our new little one, our vet found that she came to us with giardia...what a shock since their puppies are supposedly so "certified healthy!" I talked multiple times with a guy named Manny (Emmanuel Williams), who said he would take care of a refund of vets expenses for me, so I sent the receipts and vet's notes as requested on September 28th, and zero response, not a word. I will spread the word about PuppySpot's true business practices and how different they are than their empty promises.

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Cheryl - We work hard to make welcoming home a furry family member full of joy and excitement and we're disappointed to learn we failed with you. We were also sorry to hear that your pup was diagnosed with Giardia, a common and treatable puppyhood condition. As living, breathing beings, as unfortunate as it is, puppies sometimes get sick, which is why our service extends well beyond the delivery of a puppy and we have a dedicated health team to help resolve any issues our customers may have. As soon as we received your feedback, our Aftercare Supervisor was quick to learn more, see how we can help and has been working with you closely ever since. Our relationship began when we matched you with your new furry family member, and we will continue to act as a source of support now and throughout your puppy parent journey.

First Class

Everyone involved performed their part of the service perfectly. Communication was seamless. The time-line and finial delivery went off without a hitch. Oh yes, the puppy is every bit of what was promised. She is happy and healthy. Well worth the money.

This is the second dog that we have bought through PuppySpot, and I can’t recommend him highly enough. Our puppy concierge was so attentive, answered all my questions, and always give me a quick call back. We are in love with our mini golden doodle and can’t recommend this place highly enough.

I would not use puppy spot again.

No Brokerage Fees are covered shipping to Canada, or cargo fees are not covered, and neither are taxes. The animals are overpriced. Breeders are great, puppy spot sucks, and so does the puppy manager Erin. The crate the animal showed up in was damaged, and had no food.

PuppySpot Customer Advocate

Jonathan - We were shocked to receive your review since it is the polar opposite of the feedback we regularly receive and the level of service we strive to provide. Your feedback is very important to us which is why our Operations Manager personally tried to connect with you to learn more about your experience and address your concerns. Unfortunately, you were unable to speak and said you would call us back. We look forward to speaking with you very soon!

Great experience

Have to say that I was concerned about purchasing a puppy online but from our first conversation till collecting puppy I was very happy. Some reviews have commented on the high price for puppies but I’m a firm believe in “you get what you pay for”. Our puppy is beautiful and healthy plus we did not have to search and wait for one to be born.

Couldn't ask for more!

They were amazing! Already looking into getting another puppy from them. They were in contact with me every step of the way. When I got the puppy, she was very well cared for and healthy. When I took her to my vet right after she arrived, my vet was even very impressed with the paperwork that came with the puppy and how thorough they were. I was very sceptical of buying a puppy online. But I'm glad I went through PuppySpot, and I highly recommend them.
