IKEA Provides ‘Dog Parking’ For Shoppers With Pets

Pet lovers in Berlin can now bring Fido shopping with them.

While bike parking is a common sight at IKEAs around the United States, IKEA Germany has added another type of convenient parking for shoppers- dog parking. IKEA Germany doesn’t allow pets (except for guide dogs) in the store, stating safety and hygienic concerns, but the retailer has come up with a creative solution to accommodate the country’s many pet lovers.

Dogs can comfortably wait right outside the front door of the store while their owners shop. They’re given their own astro-turf lawn, and IKEA even provides water bowls for the waiting pooches. Instead of pet lovers having to leave their companions at home while they run errands, IKEA has created a creative solution that keeps stores safe and clean while keeping dog owners happy.
