I have to start this with I love animals. If you don’t know how much I love pandas then I have not shared enough of myself with you and I apologize. I love the gentleness of pandas. I also love dogs, cats, and most of the animals God created. As I am out and about, I always love to see places where pets are welcome. I knew Petco and PetSmart allowed dogs but was surprised to see many other places let you bring your furry family member. I was in Home Depot and saw several dogs walking through the store with their loved ones. It made my day. Since then, I have learned Lowes, Tractor Supply, Bass Pro Shop. LUSH, Apple Store, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Pottery Barn, and Starbucks allows dogs. Starbucks does not allow inside, but in their outdoor seating area, pups are welcome. If you ask, they will even give your pup a treat.

It is so nice to live in a place that understands that pets are our family members too, and we love them dearly. If you travel, pets are welcome in some hotels. Marriott, Westin, Holiday Inn, Red Roof Inn, Sheraton, Loews, and La Quinta are just to name a few.

Rover has a great website devoted to pet-friendly places and things to do. You might want to check it out here. There are just so many good places to go. It is wonderful to know many companies understand this.
