Dog Friendly Businesses and Living


The companies below have confirmed to me that they are pet-friendly, either via customer service email or I have personally taken my dog into the store/restaurant (I have a Yorkie).  Regardless, I have always asked permission before walking into any store.

Ultimately, the manager on duty will have the final say.  Be prepared to have to leave if the manager does not want your dog in the store.  Some businesses only allow small dos that are carried or are in a bag.  Health codes also do not permit dogs in restaurants and bars that do keep it on the down low.  The restaurants listed below do permit dogs on the outside patio or sidewalk area.   Remember – for the companies below bringing your dog into their store is a privilege, NOT a right.
