Are They Dog Friendly?
Tractor Supply has been inviting dogs and their owners into their stores for over 80 years.
As of June 2020, they have stores in 49 states and their dog friendly policy is the same in all states.
It’s important to dog owners to be able to bring their dog into the store. Especially when there are going to purchase something for the dog.
If the owner is looking to purchase a kennel, crate, dog house, animal barrier or a dog carrier, the owner needs to make sure they are purchasing the correct size, no one wants to haul a big kennel or any large, heavy of bulky item back to the store.
If they bring their dog with them, they can make sure they are getting the right size before they leave the store with the product. Of course, they do expect your dog to be well-behaved and on a leash.
