At Oakland Veterinary Referral Services, we feel lucky to be located in a pet-friendly location like Bloomfield Hills. Whether you are coming to see us from far away or you’re popping in from down the street, here are some of our favorite local dog-friendly businesses:

  1. Mall at Partridge Creek

The Mall at Partridge Creek in Clinton Township has plenty of great shopping options for everyone–think Bath & Body Works, Champs Sports, Coach New York, Loft, and Lululemon. On top of their superior shopping opportunities and plentiful dining options, our favorite thing about this outdoor mall is the fact that it is completely dog friendly. Bring your pup along for a day in the fresh air and enjoy their dog sculptures and dog comfort stations along the way.

  1. Bass Pro Shops

Did you know your favorite outdoor store lets you bring your favorite furry friend shopping with you? Dogs are welcome at the Bass Pro Shop in Auburn Hills, and they even have plenty of supplies for dog training. This recreational store really is your one-stop-shop for all your outdoor needs.

  1. Bright Ideas Furniture

Not only does this furniture store have one of the best selections of modern pieces in the Royal Oak area, it is also dog-friendly. The next time you’re in the market for a new couch or area rug, bring Spot with you to Bright Ideas Furniture while you browse. After all, if you really want to know if a piece of furniture or an accessory is right for your home, you’ll need to get your pet’s stamp of approval!

  1. The Urban Dog

This one might not come as much of a surprise thanks to its name, but this pet supply store gladly welcomes dog visitors. Whether you are shopping for some new food or a new toy for Lily or Sam, pop on a leash and bring your dog on a small adventure in Rochester Hills. 

  1. Dog-Friendly Businesses When You Need Service

If you find yourself in need of new tires or some other auto repairs while you have Spot with you in the car, Rick’s Tire and Wheel is the place for you. This auto shop in Shelby Township allows you to wait with your pets in the lobby while your car is being serviced.

  1. Biblioasis

If you find yourself crossing the border, you can include your dog in your quest for knowledge with a trip to Biblioasis. This dog-friendly bookshop in Windsor, Ontario is the perfect spot to spend the afternoon on a day with less-than-ideal weather. Browse some of your favorite genres, pull up a chair, and relax with your pooch as you decide on your next book purchase.
