Bringing Fido to Shop

Years ago, when visiting London, we noticed how unusual it seemed that dogs were welcome in upscale Harrod's Department Store. But times have changed.

Here in the United States, we are similarly breaking down the animal/human hierarchy. Recognizing that dogs are members of the family, and possibly understanding that many people won't stop to shop if they have to leave their dogs in a warm car, many local stores and major chains are welcoming dogs.

Barkpost gives us a list of places where you can bring your dog. At the bottom of the article, there is a link to local establishments by region and city. Before you get to that link, there are nineteen major store chains clearly listed with a picture of each.
