I have some good news for all of you dog lovers out there! Charlotte is becoming even more of a purrrfect city to reside in due to their love of animals. Now you can bring your favorite companions almost anywhere you go when running errands. There are a lot of places you would not think of that are on this list! This is very exciting and will make your errands more eventful for sure, who likes leaving home without their fur babies anyway?
I recently moved to a new house and you know what that means…, decorating, painting & PROJECTS galore! Needless to say, Lowe’s and Home Depot are now my husband and I’s new bff’s. We are in and out of Home Depot these days like it is our job, it is fun! On our most recent trip to Home Depot, we took one of our dogs with us to get some paint. Cejka, our Vizsla had a ball and you will too next time you bring your fur baby along!
More dog friendly stores include some of the obvious but not limited to, Michaels, JoAnns, Petco, Petsmart, Home Goods, T J Maxx, Bed Bath & Beyond, and lots of local pubs/restaurants! If they have a patio outside, most likely they will allow you to bring your dogs in on a leash, just call ahead and ask if you are not sure. Some local hot spots that you may not be aware of are BullDog Beer & Wine, FABO, Zoes, Zada Janes, The Wine Shop, The Liberty, and the Wine Vault. Most of you already know that you can bring your pups to Hawthorne’s Pizza, Kennedys, Philosophers Stone, Thomas Street, Triple C, NoDa Brewery and OMB.

Yay for never having to leave home again without your fur baby and seeing that pitiful face stare back at you when you go to lock the front door:)
