33 Dog Friendly Stores : See the List!

Dog Friendly Stores

Do you love to bring your dog with you everywhere you go? I do, and often wish I could bring my dog, Jake, into stores and restaurants with me. Maybe it’s just me projecting my own feelings onto the dog, but you know how it is.  That look on their faces that make it seem like you’re about to desert them forever when you have to leave them at home or outside of the store? It’s heart-wrenching, isn’t it?

Well, the good news is that more and more establishments are tweaking their policies to allow people to brings their dogs along after all. Motels and hotels, restaurants, cafe’s and such are hopping on the dog friendly stores train.

I recently came across this list of 33 Dog Friendly Stores that BarkPost published.  I include a quick run-down of the list here, but do check out the full post on BarkPost because they include a link to each store. You’ll probably have to contact the ones you’re interested in bringing your dog to first to make sure that they do, indeed, allow Fido to step in. BarkPost has this to say:

*Note: If your dog is not a service dog, do not bring them into a store that is not dog-friendly. Additionally, many chain stores (including ones on this list) leave it up to the manager to decide whether their individual locations allow dogs or not. The best way to ensure you can bring your pooch inside is to call ahead and find out that specific store’s policy.

  1. I love this!! We love to bring Cocoa when we go out but can’t if it’s too hot or too cold since she has to be in the car. If more places would allow them in it would be wonderful!! There are lots I had no idea may allow dogs.

    • I love going to PetSmart with my dog. I also take Shirley, my Bearded Dragon, whenever I go. She’s a great conversation starter for sure. We get a lot of double-takes. lol Thanks for visiting my blog today, M.K. Come back soon. 🙂
