Where Are The Dog Friendly Major Retail Stores?
It helps to know which retail stores are Dog Friendly. More and more people are choosing to shop online, but some still enjoy going out to a store. And what’s better than bringing your furry friend along too?
I have a friend that is permanently in a wheelchair. She has a service dog that goes with her wherever she goes. The stories she shares of other people’s dogs being disruptive is kind of disturbing. It doesn’t have to be that way. If you are a responsible dog parent, more and more stores may also decide to be Dog Friendly.

We all want to bring our pets with us wherever we go. Many establishments only allow service dogs, but some will allow non-service dogs. It’s best to always check the individual pet policies before arriving with your furry child.
And you should not expect others to take care of your pet. Your pet should be well behaved, on a leash and be prepared to clean up any messes your pup may leave and these dog friendly stores will continue to welcome you in their establishment..
