A “Doggy Dog” World: Shopping with Your Pets

Updated: Mar 11

I know... that's not the real saying (it's Dog -eat dog). Why do we have to live in such a highly competitive world that our pets are even being used to describe it?? But, at a time after the 2020 pandemic, we, as humans realized our pets are very important parts of our lives, and so have many retailers.

My pup Kash had his first outing at HomeDepot

Turns out Home Depot in Robinson Twp only allows service dogs. It wasn't posted on the main door, so I didn't know that until I was almost done. Nobody approached me; but I'm not sure why--Kash was so darn cute in the store!

However, TrueValue in Moon Township IS dog friendly. They let you know and are happy to greet your four legged friend. has compiled a list of dog-friendly (and I'm guessing pet in general friendly) retailers so our four-legged companions can join us as we shop til we drop!

Happy tails! (See what I did there?😉)
