great packaging and communication; worked with me on shipping dates
I contacted Dennis last month about buying his last Psalmopoeus cambridgei. I wasn't ready to have it shipped immediately, as I was still in the process of setting up the enclosure. Dennis held the tarantula until I had the enclosure ready. (Since this is my first Psalmopoeus, he also gave me some feedback on the enclosure.)
While I was preparing the enclosure, the tarantula I had purchased molted in Dennis's care. He offered to sex it, and since it was looking male, he kindly me sent me a different one that he had been planning to keep for himself so that I would have a better chance of getting a female.
I would definitely buy from him again if he had something I was looking for. He obviously cares a lot about his tarantulas.
Packaging, prices, sizes, communication, and caring for tarantulas well-being.
Purchased several tarantulas on 26 Jan 2017. Due to weather in our areas, had to wait for warmer conditions. Dennis stayed in constant contact during the wait. Arrived today, all in good health and beautiful! I highly recommend purchasing from him!
Healthy tarantulas, great packing, awesome communication
Just had a great experience with Dennis. He's such an awesome guy! We've been trying to sort out shipping since November and finally all came together. Dennis is super patient, great with communication, and does an excellent job packing. I'm looking forward to working with him in the future!
Tarantula's abdomen was nice and plump, she was calm and unharmed, and her legs were all intact.

This was my first tarantula ever: a chaco golden knee Grammostola pulchripes. The tarantula arrived quickly and in perfect shape, and the packaging was great. Dennis was happy to communicate with me via text throughout the process, and he gave me all the advice I could ever need. 10/10 would buy again.
Awesome person, healthu Ts, amazing prices, I could go on and on
Dennis is a great person always looking to help, and you honestly can't beat his prices. He absolutely helped me move through a lot of the begginer portion of the hobby. I will ALWAYS check to see if he has a T I want, before checking elsewhere.
With that said, I recieved 3 P. Cambridgei, and 2 of them where basically free, I also recieved an Avic Avic from him, not a single complaint to even concider.
Trade went well with Dennis. Communication was great and like all my transactions I prefer ther is no hesitation and no hold ups. This transaction had no hiccups, we agreed on Wednesday, and the spiders were out the next day.
Bought a G. pulchripes sling from cold blood. The little guy arrived safe and sound. Packed really well. The little one crawled out of her vial and proceeded to climb on my hand to say hi!
Oh yeah, the price was really good, and he paid shipping!!
I'd buy from him again.
Hello all of AB. I have been doing breeding loans with Dennis for the past year or so. My experience so far. He's trustworthy in every way. I will continue to do loans, trades etc with him for as long as we are both in the hobby. He has awesome communication. Keeps me up to date with everything! Takes very good care of my males that I send him! One heck of a breeder. He really is a great person to do loans with. He hasn't failed me yet lol. Did I mention he's a very cool guy and easy to talk with. I have a lot of fun with Dennis. He makes this hobby much more enjoyable for me because we communicate so well and have so much fun in the process. Stellar in every way.
Well packaged, great communication, awesome prices.
I just received my P. cambridgei slings from Dennis and I couldn't be happier. They were incredibly well packaged, his communication was awesome, he answered any questions I had for him. Overall he's a great breeder and seller and I'll definitely be buying from him again
CB had excellent communication, and has great prices, and we'll cared for animals.
Had the pleasure of being able to pick up some slings from Dennis in person. He clearly takes excellent care of all his animals. I picked up 2 each of P. cambridgei, H. incei, and A. avicularia slings. All are healthy, and most are currently eating their first meal in my care. I would absolutely recommend buying from Dennis, and he will be the first seller I go to when I'm looking to make my next purchase.
Price was better than anything similar
They ate a full meal just before shipment so I don't have to panic on the initial care.
He gave me a free spiderling avic avic for buying multiple T's from him.
This was the best top to bottom transaction I have done for purchase of T's. He spent more time making sure I understood their care and target enclosure than any other seller. He shipped them when he said he would ship them (also matched when I preferred to receive them). They arrived in mint healthy condition and matched what I said I preferred when he gave me options of size, etc. I will buy from him again. He obviously enjoys raising tarantula's.
Everything was great. Communication, quality of animals, packaging and shipping were perfect. Some great freebies too!
Ordered several species from Dennis recently and everything went wonderfully. He's a good guy, very communicative and his animals are amazing looking. Prices were more than reasonable and he even threw me some freebies! He's also very knowledgeable and gives great advice for anything you might be questioning. All in all great deal with a great dealer! Thanks Dennis!
Great communication, perfect packing, healthy happy spiders and a freebie.
I couldn't have asked for anything more.
Discount for buying multiples, choice of a freebie and beautifully packed healthy T's.
Kept in good contact throughout. Would recommend Dennis to anyone as a stand up responsible individual.
Five star all the way.
I received my order earlier today and everything was perfect! I got 10 H. incei's for a communal project and even got an extra one for good measure. I got such a great deal on pricing I didn't expect a freebie. I was happily surprised! I've ordered from numerous members and he is up there with all of the best in the hobby. I will be keeping an eye on his ads in the future for sure!
This is somewhat of a nontraditional review. I have not yet received my four G. pulchripes slings, but this is actually why cold blood is so amazing. I reached out to him inquiring about buying a couple slings, and he made me an absolutely amazing deal. Unfortunately, the day after we completed negotiations, a bad heat wave hit my area. Given my area, it will be over 100F for the rest of the summer. To keep the slings safe from dying in transit, he agreed to hold on to the slings until this heat safely passes.
His communication has been incredible, he has been overly accomodating and understanding, and above all, I can tell that he legitimately cares about these animals beyond a paycheck.
