This list of dog-friendly stores in Birmingham shares places where dogs are not only allowed, but welcomed with open arms (and an occasional puppy treat:-).
Update: I’ve added a few more dog-friendly stores for 2018, as the original list was posted in 2016.
When you need to do a bit of shopping AND you need to exercise your dog, you can do both~thanks to the plethora of dog-friendly stores in Birmingham. You can easily shop to your heart’s content with your dog in almost every retail outlet at The Summit.
When strolling outside the storefronts at the lovely Summit in Birmingham, you’ll notice many dog paw decals on doors along with water bowls. This is a sure sign that you’ve found a dog-friendly store.
To show how much my Cam and I enjoy The Summit, I’ve posted some photos of our shopping trips:-) At the end of the post, I include the list of stores at The Summit that are officially dog-friendly (along with a few other Birmingham stores that are not located at The Summit).
