How to Tell Customers You Welcome Pets

A key aspect of making your business dog-friendly is ensuring that your customers know that you welcome pets into your business.

We find that the best way to do this is through signage. It should be as visible as possible, so passers-by can see that your business allows dogs inside. This is why we created our Dog-Friendly Stickers that you can use in the windows and doors of your business.

But it doesn’t stop there. There are many other ways to tell your potential customers that you welcome pets.

You can communicate your pet-friendliness on your website and explain any policies that you have in place for dogs, such as any areas where they may not be allowed and how you would like them to behave.

Don’t forget social media too. You can include your dog-friendly status in the “About Us” and “Business Descriptions” on social media and include photos of dogs that have come to visit.

You can also use sites such as and make sure it is clear on there that you are dog-friendly. Use Google My Business too.

Chances are you are already set up on GMB, and you can use attributes to let people know that you welcome pets, and again you can use photos on there too. Photos and resources such as this are a great way to draw attention and show how you welcome pets.

Another easy option is to include bowls of water outside; this is a great way to make it plainly clear that dogs are allowed.

The more businesses that use these dog-friendly signals, the easier it will be for business owners and dogs in the city to get around.

We believe that there are so many reasons to welcome pets that can benefit the whole community.
