Petco - Wrong size dog crate

119 of 600 Petco reviews

I purchased an XXL dog crate online for my French Mastiff so that I could have it before the holiday weekend to go out of town.I never received tracking for the crate, then when it did show up it was a small.

I sat on the line for over an hour trying to get this corrected. The girl on the other end who barely spoke English told me she would get my card credited and the replacement sent out once the wrong size crate was picked. I thought this would be great but when I let her know I would hold on to the wrong crate until the corrected size arrived that's when everything became very confusing. After 30 minutes of explaining the situation to one woman, I had to wait an additional 30 minutes to speak with a manager.

He wasn't very pleasant, kept speaking over me, and was not the least bit concerned with my frustration. I work in the service industry, I know how it works and I know they personally did not make the mistake but it would have just been nice as the customer to been taken care of a little better.

I did not make the mistake, PETCO did, yet I had to deal with the hour long frustration.I am basically left waiting and hoping they get the correct crate out to me.

.com purchases are always welcome to be returned to the store as long as you have a packing slip. In most cases even if you don't have it they DO have the ability to look it up for you. FYI for the future. :)
