Garden stores are a gift to both dogs and humankind. There are the earthy, floral aromas, the tasteful outdoor decor, and all of the supplies a gardener could possibly need. And now there will be the pitter-patter of canine paws, too, because you get to bring your furry friend! To make things even better, we’ve “dug up” the most dog-friendly garden stores in the Twin Cities all for your planting, decorating, and (of course) sniffing pleasure.
Before we get started, there are a few things to remember: your pup should be on his or her very best behavior and on a leash at all times. Head to our shops directory for more deets and even more dog-friendly shops! Alright, on to the good stuff:
