If you want to bring your dog to Ikea… And you live in Germany… You’re in luck!
Ikea stores in Germany have instituted dog “parking” areas outside their stores – each complete with a little astroturf “bed,” a water bowl, and a place to tie a leash. Apparently too many dog-loving Germans were trying to bring their dogs inside Ikea. And the good folks at Ikea couldn’t have dogs all over the furniture and sniffing up on all of the unpronounceable knick knacks.
There are even cute little kennels for smaller dogs. Although you might have to put these together yourself with an allen wrench.
