Petland of Merrillville, IN offers valuable information on caring for your puppy and choosing a puppy that is right for you. We have a wide selection of products for puppies and full grown dogs alike. From premium dog food to Frontline & Advantage, we offer everything you need to care for and even spoil your “baby.” We offer all the products you will need to meet your pet’s four basic needs.
