33 Stores That Don’t Ask You To Leave Your Dog Outside When You Shop

*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.

The other day I was walking my dog when I walked past the most gorgeous coat in the window of Anthropologie. It was pouring rain. Of course, I didn’t want to tie up my pup… but then, a retail miracle occurred! It turns out that Anthropologie is a dog-friendly store! Which got me thinking, what other stores also welcome canine shoppers? So here it is: the ultimate list of national stores that are dog friendly! Petco and Petsmart were left off in favor of stores with slightly more obscure dog policies (but don’t worry! you can still bring your dog into them!)
