It is in fact, just a friendly neighborhood hardware store with pet-friendly folks! The only "pet-friendly amenities" are dog treats for canine customers! While I do patronize the store for most of my hardware needs, my dog and I stop in whenever we're in the neighborhood just to say "hi" (and for the treats!).
Minnehaha Cafe-very good food and they allow dogs out side on the patio. The owner has a dog who is often there sitting outside he has a black lab I believe. I just tie my dog to one of the tables or a bench while I can enjoy lunch or coffee-plus Minnehaha dog park is very close great place to take your dog!
Laundry, dry-cleaning, and coin-op laundromat. This is where we go to do our laundry because pets are welcomed there, even though it doesn't have any signs that say so. Located on 66th Street between Xerxes and Penn Aves next to the SuperAmerica.
