I finally have a petsmart story!
Killing some time before a movie started, DH and I went next door to the Petsmart to look around, see what they had on sale, etc.
As we were leaving met up with a man and a beautiful bi color male. He was SO sweet and just snuggled right up next to me. All seems well, until....
Me: "yeah, I have a solid black female, she's almost 13 years old! She's my baby"
Guy: "Oh, can she have puppies?"
Husband: "Not at 13!" Me: "She's spayed and 13" (we spoke at the same time)
Another woman overhearing. Not even next to us though... "She said she was 13"
Guy: "oh, I didn't hear her say she was 13, to bad"
I thanked him for letting me pet his dog and we left....
I don't believe for a second he didn't hear me say 13, it wasn't noisy and he heard everything else I said....
I now have a petsmart story though, lol

I go to petsmart quite often, its a good place for me to work with Dexter on ignoring the other dogs. Up to now Ive always came into contact with the most enjoyable people, some are even K-9 officers. I guess it depends on the area and the Pet smart location.
Im so glad you have a Petsmart story, I wonder how that guy would feel about his mother or grandmother having more kids LOL

I will never bring Gunner to Petsmart ever again.
The last time we went, Gunner was in a down while we chatted with an employee.
I had seen a lady with what was the biggest Mastiff I had ever seen. I heard her telling someone that he was 210lbs. The lady was barely 100lbs herself.
So we're standing there, Gunner in the down, when I see her over by the cat adoption place asking for paper towels. They were about 30ft from us.
All of a sudden the Mastiff sees Gunner, barks and takes off for us. The woman was being dragged by the dog. She couldn't hold him and was literally sliding across the floor.
The dog was heading straight for Gunner so my husband took off with him down an isle, trying to outrun the dog. The Mastiff was too quick and made contact with Gunner's butt.
The employee we were talking with grabbed the Mastiff's leash and they both were then able to control the dog.
I stood there, stunned, not even knowing where my husband and Gunner went, or if he was okay.
The lady never even apologized. I'm 5'8" and the Mastiff's back came up to my waist. I'm not kidding, it was the biggest dog I've ever seen.
She was asked to leave since she couldn't control the dog.
I found my husband and Gunner down a few aisles. He was fine but his butt was covered in Mastiff slobber.
I vowed to never bring my dog there and made sure I told the manager (who had now joined us). He apologized, but it wasn't his place to apologize. It was the lady who decided to bring a dog she couldn't control into the store.
I've never brought him back. The employees always ask about him but I've made it clear they'll never see him there again.

The last time I was at petsmart was over 2 years ago.
I went there on Black Friday, bought a large bag of chicken jerky treats that they had on sale for 50% off. The next day I read all the warnings about chicken jerky treats from China. My boy had only had 2 or 3 out of a bag of like 100, so knowing about their return policy I went back to return them and get a different bag of treats. Sadly, after talking to the cashier, and the manager, they tried to convince me that there was no risk. I explained to them that I didn't care and wasn't going to risk anything over a $10 bag of treats. They didn't care, wouldn't give me store credit. I even sent a letter to corporate who didn't care either. I guess they wanted to give business to the petco 3 doors down. I'll never go to petsmart ever again.
