IKEA Provides ‘Dog Parking’ For Shoppers With Pets

IKEA Provides ‘Dog Parking’ For Shoppers With Pets
Home

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.
