PetSmart, one of the country’s most popular pet supply stores, is known for its massive selection of food, bedding, cleaning supplies, and more for your furry (or fishy!) friends. You can even look into adopting one of the dozens of animals they regularly have on display within their stores. But can you bring your pet inside?

Can I bring my dog to PetSmart?

The answer is yes! You can bring all types of animals (find the list of acceptable animals here) inside PetSmart as long as they are leashed or contained and up-to-date on their vaccinations. This means you and your animal companions can look for new toys, treats, or tanks together!

What type of animals are not allowed?

PetSmart is one of the most animal-friendly stores out there, but it still has its limits. They do not allow “non-traditional” pets in their store (unless they receive medical care from an in-store Banfield hospital). Non-traditional pets are defined as pets that could not be adopted from PetSmart and pets whose products are not sold at PetSmart. For example, you can’t adopt a horse or buy a saddle at PetSmart, so a horse would be considered a non-traditional pet and denied entry. Sorry, Secretariat!

Overall, PetSmart is a great place to buy supplies for your forever friend and give them a chance to socialize with other animals. PetSmart is a great way to go if you’re looking for anything pet-related.
