Can you bring dogs in Lowe’s?
Are you ready to be confused? The general consensus is that dogs are welcome in stores. However, as the National Canine Research Association of America reports,
Service animals and pets are allowed in all US Lowe’s stores. In Canada, only service animals are permitted.
According to their official handbook, being pet-friendly allows Lowe’s to reinforce their commitment to customer experience. However, while this is the official policy, it may not always be consistently followed, depending on management or local rules. We always recommend ringing up your local store before making the trip so you don’t run into any issues!
Fido may be allowed into Lowe’s to help you brainstorm all your future projects, but there are a few rules (and common courtesy!) to follow to make sure that everyone is having a pleasant time.
Part of Lowe’s policy includes that owners or handlers must have full control of their pets at all times. While it says that heeling or walking calmly besides the handler is allowed, we always err on the side of caution and say leash your pet! You never know what surprises are in store that could startle your pup or require additional control.
Pssst…our exclusive Patio Leash is a little shorter to keep pup by your side, and clips to the table if you’re going for brewskis after your big shopping trip.
While it may be just you and Fido working on the home improvement project, you’re not the only two who are shopping in the store. We expect you to be able to control your excitement over new low-flush toilet technology, but Lowe’s expects him to be non-disruptive as well.
Some of the examples that Lowe’s provides of disruptive behavior are aggression toward animals or people, jumping on people or surroundings, barking, growling, etc. So if Fido is in the mood to do that today, maybe let’s skip the Lowe’s trip?

Does Lowes Allow Dogs
We all like to take our dogs with use on outings, but it can be confusing trying to figure out where they are welcome. Beware of “dog friendly” lists online. While doing research, I found many companies that other sites claim are dog friendly, are not! For example, one site even claimed Bed, Bath, & Beyond had special dog shopping carts. I contacted the company and they had no idea what I was talking about regarding the carts, and said they only allow service animals.
