We receive a lot of requests at DogFriendly.com to list individual or all of the Home Depot and Lowes Home Improvement stores as dog-friendly. While it is definitely true that you can often take your small dog or even larger leashed dogs into these stores, it is not the official chain policy. Individual managers may allow it at one store or another, but these policies are changed often. So we don’t list these stores for the most part. However, you can often take your dog there. Many other hardware stores allow dogs as well – Tractor Supply Hardware is dog-friendly in just about every store nationwide. For these and other dog-friendly stores in your city go to our guide here.
