Digging a deeper hole……

By | Puppy Store | No Comments

The new law in Suffolk county stops stores from selling puppies from private breeders….”HELLO” “HELLO” “HELLO”……wrong choice. What you are doing is making stores get puppies from commercial breeders only, isn’t what we are trying to do to stop stores from selling puppies from sub-standard commercial breeders??? This is totally counter productive. You see some of the best quality puppies are from the hobbyist breeders, they are always healthy and well socialized. We were told it would be overturned but I don’t think a promise from anyone in politics means anything.
Another new law that was passed in Suffolk county is, no leasing a puppy anymore. The reasons are not with any substance what so ever, The radical animal activists are saying that puppies are being repossessed by the finance companies. This has not ever happened, not even once.I thought in AMERICA you had a choice of what to purchase and how you would like to pay for it. The big problem here is the law is pushing people into some of the worst stores and online mills,which gave reason to add the new puppy laws.If store have more then 1 location they are just running the financing thru their other locations located in Nassau or other counties in New York(which is happening as we speak), not fair for the good puppy stores in Suffolk. The revenue is just going to Nassau county stores and flooding the internet with purchases from puppy mills(Consumers think they are real caring breeders on line).
As the stores close slowly all the consumers are shopping in the puppy mills of the internet and each person really believes it’s from a private breeder, WRONG! This will NOT make people adopt more pets from the shelters, they will just drive a little further or go to the internet, either way Suffolk county looses. Bowwow Babies is a company that enjoys placing puppies with people, I hope we can continue do so for years to come…….

A few thoughts for you…….

By | Puppy Store | No Comments

We understand that puppies are a lot of work, this is why we do tell many shoppers to rescue a pet. It boggles my mind how people go to get rescues and they are so tortured by the people in charge, they exhaust the people which will send them back to just buy a puppy. I get it that you want the best homes possible….but we have sent people that have lost a dog after 14 years and the rescue group will take their names and never call them back. Wec send many people to the town shelters and but most of our customers want small dogs, they are not available. Anyway, god knows we try, but it’s up to the rescue groups to guide their potential pet owners in a more positive fashion…….”I’m just saying”

ps. If you want to adopt, please feel free to contact us and we can help you get in touch with worthy rescue groups or shelters…

We are very proud of this review on the terribly unfair yelp site………..

My daughter has been asking for a puppy ever since we lived in a hotel for 9 months while our home was renovated. I kept telling her ” when we go home.” We have been home for a year now and I never got that puppy.
Shopping at the mall one day we went into the puppy store. My daughter fell in love with a cute little Coton De Tulear. The puppy was adorable but the store was horrible. I am highly allergic to dogs so a hypoallergenic puppy was my goal. I even took two benadryl and waited 20 mins before I went into the puppy store. I immediately started reacting to the store that was obviously not cared for properly and was filthy! I have Westie and I’m fine with him and he doesn’t effect my allergies. Taking two benadryl as prophylaxis and waiting to go into the store I should have been fine and wasn’t!
We left with my daughter crying and me wanting to jump into a vat of clorox.

What did i do? A few days before Christmas and my daughter is crying and all she wants is a puppy and deserved one. I did what we all do and googled ” best puppy stores in Nassau and Suffolk ”

Bow Wow Babies came up in Huntington. I waited for them to open called and rushed right there forgetting my just in case benadryl. As i walked through the doors i thought thank god this place is immaculate I didn’t smell the yucky smell I smelled at the pet store at the Lake Grove mall. This place was so clean! I was in my ocd heaven!

I went to the puppy area. So many cute puppies! I still wanted my Coton but they didn’t have any that week. So I looked around at the malteses.

Next question was can I hold her. I was nicely told to look around a little more watch the puppies and when I was ready I could hold the puppy that I was interested in. I was also told that not to touch the puppies because they are babies and they don’t want to chance them getting sick. Some people find this to be mean I thought wow i love this place! !! I’m very ocd and germophobe. Baby puppies are babies and if people can’t understand why they shouldn’t be handled by a million different people a day they have no business owning a puppy or a dog! i loved how Bow Wow Babies, Lisa and her staff protected these innocent babies!

I stayed that day for at least 3 hours. Lisa i think is the owner took her time and told me all about the puppies. Lisa also asked about my family and other pets in the home. She then told me that she has the perfect puppy for me. A Bishon. I looked at her and thought she was cute but wanted a tea cup puppy.

I looked around and kept looking at the maltese. I think Lisa thought I needed a little help and she put me in a sanitized room, made me purell my hands brougt in the bishon.

I held the bishon and she kissed me! I held her on my lap next I am next thing ya know I’m in love with my little cotton ball running around me in a circle, jumping on me and smooching.
In the room I was talking to my mom on the phone and telling her about the puppy and the maltese. My mom who used to breed yorkies said if any breeder or store is going to sell you a tea cup puppy with a seven year old child they aren’t reputable.

I came out spoke with Lisa and we spoke about my daughter and she said the bishon would be a better choice because she’s a little bigger and it would be a better suited puppy for us… I told her my mom just said the same thing! Umm there is no way they heard my mom talking to me on my cel across the room. I was so taken back. Lisa at bow wow loves her puppies and will only match you with the perfect baby for you.

lisa knew the perfect puppy for my family.

I took my puppy the next day. Also took her to the vet and she is healthy! No cough, no parasites just happy and healthy.

I got what I was told I was getting! A wonderful healthy puppy!

I can’t thank Lisa and the staff enough! They all answered my questions all day!

Lisa is a straight forward honest person. If you want someone to full your head up w lies and nonsense to make a sale don’t go to her. Lisa will tell you the truth , her professional and personal opinions. Lisa has no problems telling you what breeds she likes and some she doesn’t and has the reasons why. I absolutely love this lady and more importantly the puppies do! They go crazy when they see her and get so excited. That says it all!

I would absolutely recommend this place for anyone looking for a healthy well cared for and a puppy protected by her seller puppy. So for anyone who wrote posts saying they are mean and you weren’t allowed to hold the puppies i dont suggest you buy a puppy at all! These are babies and need protecting. I learned that the hard way when my 12 week old Rottweiler died from Parvo. That puppy died because the breeder didn’t educate me like Lisa did! That puppy left us because his breeder only cared about money and not the health of our babies.

It’s insulting and just amazing at the same time…….

wow…wow…wow I simply cannot believe the amount of people this year that are now educated about deplorable kennels, yet they want a well bred puppy for $500. I have been in the business 28 years myself and 28 years ago they were not $500. The worst part is the people looking for the bargains get angry with us, they even will yell at us. It was always a fun day at work but I tell you something is changing the way people behave in a public forum (no manners) and they always blame us, but it is not us, we are trying to represent the best of the best in breeders which is what a consumer should want. Once again, how about just a little tiny “Thank You”

She knows everything, but really knows nothing…….

A very unfriendly customer came in the store on Oct 25th looking for a Mini Goldendoodle puppy….This customer, her name is “Laura” of Huntington came in with a terrible attitude and for no reason. Laura called earlier in the day saying she was driving 7 hours from Huntington to Pennsylvania(Amish) to get a puppy simply because it was less money but she decided she would stop in to see our place. Bowwow Babies caters to an educated customer that cares about where the puppy came from and is it healthy. What set Laura off was that she realized a fine quality Mini Goldendoodle is above her financial means which is ok, but don’t get nasty with us for this reason. She also did not like the fact that the puppy was alone in her playpen due to the fact her brother was sold 30 min prior to Laura’s charming arrival. She said the puppy was shy and un social, which is because the horrible energy Laura gave off. The puppy was sold that afternoon to a wonderful family worthy of owning a delightful Mini Goldendoodle puppy…Check our facebook to see her going home on Oct 25th…The customer has called and raved about the puppy, while Laura drove 7 hours to buy god knows what from god knows who…Good Luck Laura you are a delight!

Buy from a breeder, Really????

By | Puppy Store | No Comments

I cannot believe the people that come in to our boutique and tell us that they got their puppy from a breeder. Meanwhile after chatting with them, we learned how they went online and purchased their puppy. Little do they know that their puppy came direct from one of the worst PUPPY MILLS in the USA…..you see now that we have the puppy mill laws in some parts of NY State and other states as well, the terrible breeders can no longer showcase their puppies in pet stores and pet boutiques because they have many violations from the USDA. These puppy mills will now sell their puppies all over the internet. Hence all the unsuspecting people who actually think they are buying their puppy from a quality breeder………

a meaningful thank you……wow

It means so much to our staff when clients just say how wonderful their puppy is. We always can count on, “the puppy missed the wee wee pad”, “the puppy barked the first night home”, etc…. It really is wonderful and special when we get a Thank You…….

It’s really difficult screening all the breeders……..

By | Puppy Store | No Comments

God knows we keep on top of the reputations of breeders as well as their USDA reports. However, a breeder can slip through the screening process which allows all the puppy kennels and stores to be duped into believing it’s a caring breeder, even we have been misled and with great regret represented a puppy from a breeder we may not have had complete transparency. It would NEVER be intentional to resell a puppy from a sub-standard breeder and we follow the guidelines that are imposed. We are now finding that breeders change their names and can slip under the magnifying glass. Some breeders even put their breeding dogs under a different name, I think they may tell the USDA that they sold there breeding dogs to another breeder. We are now going to post a list on our website to help puppy shoppers avoid purchasing a puppy from a sub-standard breeder or even a broker…When we had the meeting in Riverhead NY last spring I thought the law should have been more defining, such as listing the names of breeders puppy retailers could not sell puppies from, however, it was passed as stores could not use breeders with violations. I also thought that if a breeder had more then 50 breeding dogs it should be prohibited as source for puppies. This to got shot down. You see there are breeders out there with 500 breeding dogs and NO violations but I always think how is it possible to give the attention to all those dogs……I do hope our beware of breeder list helps…..
