I am so irritated. I always take Alexa to petsmart to get her nails grinded because then they don't rip me to shreds lol...but anyway i walked in today and they said "oh shes a pit mix, we don't accept them" and i said "you've always done them before" and she said "well we are sticking strictly to city ordinances now"......what a load of BS...cant even get a dogs nails done somewhere or groomed...its ridiculous and i have read all the city ordinances....no where does it say that stores cant provide goods or services to pit bulls....crazy....anyway just had to rant.

I would call corporate and the city, print out the city ordinances and take it back after you have talked to corporate office of Petsmart. Get a dremmel and do it yourself as well. SOrry girl. Hugs

Our Petsmart has no issues clipping pit bulls nails,but I had an issue with a worker there and a snide remark I got about my "vicious dogs" I took it to their page on FB,and Corporate actually contacted me and the store.
They take stuff like that very seriously.

Also if they feel endangered they can just muzzle the dog. That is what they did to Bruno cause they didn't have proof of his "shots" Which was also BS cause I had been there tons of times,the new chick was just scared of Bruno.

That's BS that people act so stupid. I mean obviously people wouldn't take in a dog that was aggressive to people. And dang it's just a nail clip what's the big deal?

Go a step a head of them and complain. I complained ones about them and got a $10 gift card, not that big of a deal I know.
Try Petco they say that if your not happy its free. I know they accept any breed
EDIT
Even if she was scared there is no point in not telling the truth about it. Also if your going to be such a whimp that you chicken out, when a non-agressive dog comes in; well then she shouldnt be working in that area at all, now should she?

It was probably a misinformed clerk. Did you make that call? I would start with a store manager and work my way up from there. They may even give you free stuff if you suggest you might take your complaints public.
