Who knows more about plants and trees than the dogs that pee on them? Many garden centres will welcome your doggy friends. Visiting a plant store and supporting local businesses is a great option for those Canadian winters when itâs too cold to go for a walk!

No, you can’t bring your puppy into Best Buy no matter how cute and small he or she is. The same policy applies, with the store only being dog-friendly to those that can prove they are a service animal.

I’m not a big take-your-dog-into-the-stores kind of guy because my boy can get really distracted and he is a tall, 80 lb beast so can look rather intimidating but he is so friendly and fun. The other day, I had him in the van on the way to a park and had to make a quick detour to pick up some items in Home Depot and thought I’d take him in.
Well….he absolutely LOVED it and had so much attention from customers and staff. He is a super friendly dog and we met so many new people all through our boy’s trip to the Store. It was awesome and now I really get how much fun it can be to have your dog with you when shopping.
Here’s a list of current stores that are dog friendly. Pet Stores are a given Under Nova Scotia law, guide dogs welcome in all stores.
Dartmouth Crossing: Most of the stores at Dartmouth Crossing welcome leashed, well-behaved dogs in their stores. Just look for the “Pet Friendly Store” decals on doors. The only exception to this is, as far as I can tell, is IKEA and Toys-R-Us.
Halifax Quinpool Area: Quinpool area is a popular shopping district in Halifax and is home to over 40 pet friendly stores….
