  1. Your dog should be beside you on a leash inside the store, not behind or ahead to avoid him causing trouble and you not being able to stop him on time. You could carry him if you do not have a leash or put him in your shopping cart to avoid any problem, just be in full control of your dog.
  2. If your dog makes a mess, pee, or potty inside the store, it is your responsibility to clean it up and you will be provided with materials to clean it up.
  3. Your dog’s behavior should not be disruptive to other customers or the surrounding. Disruptive behavior means that your dog should not jump on people, try to lick people’s bodies, and should not bark, or growl at others.

  1. Hello WILL DAVID,
    Most dog owners assume that they cannot take their dogs into stores and malls, so they tether them up outside. The assumption is quite correct in some places because some store owners do not allow dogs into their stores.
    However, in the United States of America, the case is different as many stores here are dog friendly; they allow you to bring in your dog so long you can keep them in check.
    In the case of Lowes, you may have been told that they are dog friendly, but it does not imply that you can take your dog inside the store. It is quite complicated. Read this article to find out more.
