When traveling with your dog, the one place you can always bring your dog to is...
...a dog store! This realization came to me as we were perusing this Saint Louis boutique. Saint Louis is a noticeably dog-friendly city, but (unfortunately ;) not every area is ideal for dogs. Downtown Nashville, for example, was admittedly a difficult place to navigate with Pierogi. The lively country bar lined streets just aren't designed for taking leisurely strolls with your pooch - at least during the time that we were there.
Public parks are always a popular option with our family, but they're not always dog-friendly; and dog parks are often locally-exclusive. So, time and time again, we've found ourselves moseying into neighborhood dog stores when traveling with our dogs. Not only are these stores welcoming of dogs, but they also tend to be loaded with local flair. We've picked up everything from regional dog souvenirs and cookies to dog magazines, all from the places that we've stopped by. Not to mention, those working at the shops often have awesome dog-friendly suggestions to offer.
Do you travel with your dog? What's something that you love about your local dog store?

Woof! (Hey, there!) Pierogi, Gilly and Sarah here. Thanks for stopping by our dog blog. We're a little dog-obsessed around here and Pierogi & Co. is all about inspiring you to enjoy the dog days. Because life's more fun with your best (furry) friend by your side. So grab a bone and follow along as we stop to sniff the flowers...
