In a move certain to make pit bull owners broil, PetSmart says pits aren't welcome at their doggie day camp hotel. In fact, they gang the bully breeds with wolf-hybrids -- typically considered "exotic" animals (straight from the wild).
Requirements of attending the PetSmart PetsHotel:
- Dogs who have been socialized with other dogs but are not of the “bully breed” classification* or wolves/wolf hybrids
- No intact (unneutered) male dogs, pregnant females or females in heat
- Dogs who have the following vaccinations: Bordetella, Rabies, Distemper, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus
*Dogs in the "bully breed" classification (e.g. American Pit Bull Terriers, Miniature Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, American Bull Dogs, Bull Terriers or mixed breeds that have the appearance or characteristics of one of these breeds).

Boo-yah! Petsmart! Trading symbol PETM has been sold off with the market. But with signs of intelligence like this, it must be time to move them back to the watch list. Safer for their patrons' pets and a swift kick to pit bull liability vis-a-vis worker's comp, etc., etc., etc.! NICE!

Ban the all from the store. I was attacked Sunday as we were trying to check out. Just standing there and we didnt even have a pet with us.
The employee that had the dog on the leash though it was real funny. PetsMart claimed to have fired her for this action but we went to the front door last night and she is still on the clock. Store manager lied.
After being their customer since they entered the Houston market, Target will now receive our business from here on out.

PetSmart needs to stop letting owners bring their pit bulls into the store while they're shopping, too! My son and I were in PetSmart last week, and someone was there with their pit bull. We quickly got far away from it, but then it started barking at a little dog a few seconds later. We got out of the store.
