Where to Shop With Your Dog: 8 Dog Approved Stores

By ToriMistick. | Activities for Your Dog

You've seen it before, the signs that say "No Dogs Allowed." For all the businesses that don't allow our fur kids to visit, there are just as many that will welcome your dog with open arms (and a few treats).

  Shop in Dog Friendly Stores: Where to Go and Enjoy Your Time With Your Pet Dogs These are a few of my favorite places to take my dog Lucy when I want to run some errands or hang out with friends, but don't want to leave her behind. These are all free-standing stores that I visit, if they are located inside of a mall, you'll want to check that the mall property allows pets, too. And if shopping isn't your thing, check out the last pick on this list with no shopping or errands required!

1. Home Depot & Lowes

I love taking my dog with me when I'm buying a few home improvement essentials. With big wide aisles, there's plenty of room to walk without the fear of knocking anything over. And if you ever have a hard time getting a salesperson's attention, I guarantee your dog will have employees running over for a few pets and they'll be happy to help you with your project!

2. Anthropologie

The Antropologie store near my house is so dog friendly that they hosted a pet rescue event at the store this month! I would avoid the home wares section if you have a big dog with an excited tail, but the rest of the store is great. I also love the big fitting rooms, plenty of room for me and Lucy to go in together!

3. Gap

If you're stocking up on t-shirts and denim, the Gap is a very dog friendly store. See if you can get the family fitting room so your dog has plenty of room to stretch out while you try a few things on.

4. Lululemon

We can't walk past Lululemon without stopping in for a few cuddles, and a treat! The girls who work at our nearest location just love saying hello to Lucy. Plus, I can pick up some new stylish dog walking clothes for when I take Lucy on more athletic walks.

5. Sephora

Lucy always comes along if I need to pop into my favorite cosmetics store. I'll leave her at home if I'm getting my makeup done by one of the Sephora artists, but for a quick visit she's always welcome!

6. Local Boutiques

There are so many local stores where dogs are welcome, too! Since locally owned stores tend to be smaller than the chains, be very careful that your dog doesn't knock anything over. I always pop my head in and ask permission before charging in with a dog, and 9 times out of 10 they say come on in!

7. Banks

I actually wait to do anything at the bank until I can take Lucy with me, that's how much she loves going there! And it's no wonder why, they give her three or four treats when we come in! I've also seen people go through the bank drive through with their dog in the car and the teller will send treats out to you. This definitely makes banking way more enjoyable!

8. Micro Breweries

I promised an option that involves no shopping! Local micro breweries are one of my favorite places to take my dog. Most of them are dog friendly as long as they don't prepare and serve food on the premises. Not only can you hang out with your dog on the patio area, but many breweries allow your dog to go inside, making it a great year round place to take your dog!

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

Cordura seat cover

Great product. Have them on all my seats to protect them from water sand and nails of from all the dogs that travel with me in my camper van to the beach, rivers and woods.



We liked the first cover so much that a few days later we purchased a second one. The cover installs very, very easily, fits and covers the rear seat and the back of the front seats of our Subaru Tribeca perfectly, has flaps that cover the door-side edges of the rear seat, and stays perfectly in place. Spilled or tracked water beads up on the material and can be easily wiped off. At first our dog did tend to slide just a little on the new cover, but he soon learned to stand, sit, and lay just as well as he did before on the uncovered seat. The hammock portion seems like it might provide some little bit of protection in a sudden stop (our guy will chew apart any "doggie seat belt" type of restraint in very short order - so that option is out of the question for us). As to keeping him out of the car front-area - well, our long-legged Standard Poodle has no problem in still looking closely out the front windshield by putting his front feet on the center console - straddling the hammock - with no problem whatsoever. But we did discover that having the hammock in place does allow us to safely keep his water bottle and dish, his leash, and an old towel on the floor under the hammock - where he can no longer get at them (especially the leash and towel) to chew on them. All in all, an excellent seat cover.


My furbabies don't like leather seats!!!! But they love this seat cover!!!

Very hard to find a split bench seat cover at a reasonable price, this one fit the bill. Easy to install, very durable and looks to be easy to clean. Wanted something that would protect the leather seats and was pet friendly (hate it when the material of regular seat covers snags toenails and collars). I don't think I will have to buy another for many years!!!

Jackie Carter

My Doodle approves!

Received on time, fits great and easy to install. Color is a great match. So far, so good. Durability? Time will tell. It appears to be well constructed.

Donald Fish

Fits my 2018 VW Tiguan perfectly

Very happy with our purchase. Fits perfectly, was easy to install and keeps the leather seats in our brand new vehicle perfectly clean.

Chris Campbell

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

This is my 2nd seat cover from 4knines and love them both. The product and service were both fantastic.


Repeat customer VERY satisfied.

We have made several purchases from 4Knines and are VERY satisfied with products (cargo liner, back seat cover, bucket front seat cover...). I volunteer at a shelter and take dogs offsite daily. Always a Pleasure doing business with 4Knines. Highly recommend.
