WATCH OUT!!! My dog recieved the worse haircut ever!! I showed a picture of how my dogs hair cut should look and specifically asked her not to shave the dog or make him look like a poodle. The groomer shaved my dog completely down and cut the face like a poodle. Everything I asked her not to do! On top of all of this, when I arrived home, I noticed my dog had a deep cut on his belly that now need medicine 3 times a day. The nails were never cut and the ears were not even cleaned. I immediately brought him to another groomer to have his haircut fixed and the rest of his grooming completed. On top of all of this, when we called, the owner "Elizabeth" she was not apologetic and did nothing for us. Elizabeth as well of the groomer, whom I beleive was Linda, were not friendly or accommodating in any way. My dog has never come back from a groomer shaking so much and scared. I would be scared to bring my dog there again and would never NEVER reccomend this esablishment to anyone for services or for the purchase of a dog. They are far from an honorable establishment. Seems they are in it for the money, not the love of animals.

This place is an absolute travesty. If it were possible to rate this with zero stars, close the business down, condemn the building, and beat John (owner) within an inch of his life; It would not be enough to make up for John's horrible treatment of their animals, or his underhanded, reprehensible business practices. I went in, and the first thing I thought: This place should be colored entirely in black and white with a puppy's red coat thrown carelessly on the floor being the only piece of color, that is how awful the conditions are.

I have all 3 of my dogs groomed at pick of the litter, and purchased 2 of the dogs from John owner of pick of the litter. Before i found this place I had a nightmare trying to get my dog groomed. My dogs always look stunning when i go to pick them up at pick of the litter I think his prices are reasonable.I have referred many people all of which have taken a do home from pick of the litter. I give this Place an A++.

In 2006 my wife and I bought a Tri-color Cavalier King Charles spaniel we named Charlie from John at Pick of The Litter. We were working on LI and decided that we really wanted a neat little companion for our long term "sentence" of work on the island. Being aware that these dogs have known genetic defects we questioned the owner and was told two things... First he knew that none of his Cavs had genetic defects in their bloodlines and second that he never bought puppies from puppy mills ( which we learned later to be patently false!) It is now 6 years later and 4:30 AM and we are facing taking our boy to the vet to be put to sleep as he is dying from Congestive Heart Failure brought on by a genetic condition of the mitral valve of the heart. From what I have read about John practices and from the fact that we were lied to (like many others!) I would avoid this place like the plague. Further, we are filing a complaint with the NYSPCA and also a suit against this business and it's owner. This kind of heartache should NEVER be inflicted intentionally on anyone! Shame on you John!

This place is very small no eye Apeal at all. But even if the owner was stoned he actually does take car of the animals and is very informative on the puppies keeps the puppy inventory low not like other places that over populate and don't care for them they have 24 7 care and I would suggest don't judge a book by its cover and he is very reasonably priced and the puppies. Come from breeders not puppy mills like most. Of the puppy stores you see so I would give them 10 stars if I could

I walked into Pick of The Litter about a month ago just to look at the cute puppies not to take one home.. Low and behold I fell in love with my Mini Dachshund Izzy! I spoke to John about the price which I thought was high went home and thought about it. I then went online and read quite a few bad reviews about John.. So I was really not into getting Izzy but it was too late I was in love.. I called John back the next day he spent a ton of time with me on the phone and even renegotiated the price. When I went in to pick up Izzy I was there for at least 1.5 hours.. He went over everything with me. It wasn't just a heres the money give me the dog. He went over her parents history, her shots, her food, what I need to do for her future care etc.. He told me if i ever need to go away bring Izzy back even if after 10 years if I decide I no longer want to keep her he will take her back. He also gave me a health guarantee which he signed. My vet tells me Izzy is in tip top shape. She's in complete heath and is doing great! John is very experienced and caring I don't know what these other people are talking about! Pricey (like any pet store) but the animals are well cared for and I am the happiest I've ever been! Thanks John!!
