One of the pawsitively best things about the Twin Cities is the fact that so many businesses love our puppers as much as we do! In fact, there are so many dog-friendly spots around the metro, we’ve had to categorize them. From Airbnbs and malls to wineries, coffee shops, and distilleries, there are so many safe and fun ways for you and doggo to get out of the house together. Speaking of getting out of the house (woofhoo!), if you’re in the mood fur some retail therapy, here are 10 dog-friendly boutiques that will help scratch that itch!
1. Corazon | Minneapolis
Welcoming shoppers and their pups inside to try something a little bit different, Corazon has been a fixture of the Longfellow neighborhood for 15+ years. They carry plenty of artisan goods for humans, as well as a pets section.
2. Faribault Woolen Mill | Faribault and Minneapolis
We don’t know what’s going on inside doggo’s head, but we’re willing to bet that he’ll be especially excited to join you on your shopping trip to Faribault Woolen Mill because it’s filled with all sorts of cozy things that will only encourage more snuggling.
3. I Like You | NE Minneapolis and St. Paul
I Like You (and I Like You Too) are stocked from top to bottom with gifts, jewelry, home goods, apparel, and stationery from talented midwest makers, making it easy for you and your four-legged fren to support local.
