Do you need to stop by at Bed Bath and Beyond and wonder whether you can bring your dog along with you? Will you be greeted with open arms or turned away in an instant? Let’s find out!
So, are dogs allowed in Bed Bath and Beyond? Bed, Bath & Beyond is dog-friendly and most locations will allow you in-store with your dog. Some locations even have specialty dog carts that you can put your dog in while you shop.
That’s right. You read that correctly.
A cart for you to place your dog in and make the entire shopping experience much more enjoyable; for you and your pooch alike.
Well, so long as they enjoy being a passenger of course.
And if the store has them; not all of them do.
Nevertheless, it says a lot about this company’s stance on pets.
As we shall continue to see below.
Is Bed Bath And Beyond Dog Friendly?
Bed Bath and Beyond are very welcoming of dogs, and other pets. They are considered to be one of the most dog-friendly stores that you can visit.
That being said, the experience that you will have will largely be dependent on the store you visit.
Not all stores are the same.
Both in terms of layout (how much space your dog will have), and the store managers/employees’ attitudes towards dogs.
Some may not be so welcoming, others may have dog treats on the counter.
Some stores are much larger, others have been known to be a little narrow and are generally much busier too.
So it does depend on your dogs size, temperament and previous socialization too.
Some dogs will love being in Bath and Beyond, others not so much.
We’ve already touched on the ‘Canine Carts’; they won’t be available in all stores.
If you’re lucky enough that the store you visit has them (they are most commonly found in stores in the New York City area, by the way), then use them at your leisure.

Otherwise, you should keep your dog on a leash.
Bed Bath and Beyond stores are perhaps one of the best places you can visit with your dog.
They are a company that generally has a great attitude toward welcoming pets, and most dog owners have a really pleasant experience when doing so.
That being said, remember that keeping your dog calm is your responsibility.
And you should respect the needs of others when visiting.
It may be that during peak hours, it’s not actually a good idea to visit.
It could be that your dog just doesn’t do well in this kind of environment and you soon find that you need to leave.
Nevertheless, it is generally best if you do call a store location ahead of time.
Ask them what their individual store policy is, what amenities they have and perhaps even some of the quieter times to go.
