There’s nothing like a good shopping trip to Marshalls with your best furry friend by your side. But before you head to the store, you may be wondering if dogs are allowed inside. Here’s what you need to know about bringing your dog to Marshalls.
As long as your dog is well-behaved and doesn’t cause a disturbance, you should be able to bring your dog into most Marshalls stores.
However, the final decision on whether or not you can bring your dog into a store is up to the store manager. Some stores have policies against allowing pets in their stores, while others allow dogs but require that they be leashed or on a harness at all times.
Because of this wide variation in policies, I recommend that you call ahead and make sure that bringing your pooch will be okay before you go.
Why Do People Want to Bring Their Dogs to Marshalls?
Some people don’t enjoy leaving their dogs at home, so they bring them along with them wherever they go. Some dogs suffer from separation anxiety when owners leave them at home and may even cause damage to your property or themselves while you’re gone. If this sounds like you or your pet, then bringing him or her along when you go shopping may be a good idea. Lastly, some people believe that bringing their dogs with them makes shopping easier and fun.
Can the Employees at Marshalls Demand Documentation of Service Dogs?
No, but it’s best to have your dog a vest or service dog tag.
In some cases, employees may ask for documentation from you regarding your service dog. Even though you can refuse to show them documentation and they can’t demand that you do so, it’s always a good idea to provide them with a card or document that states that your dog is a service animal. This way, if anyone ever questions you about it in the future, you will have more credibility in explaining what your dog does for you and why he/she is allowed on any given property.
What Can You Do If You See Your Dog Misbehaving In Marshalls Store?
If you see your dog misbehaving at Marshall’s, there are some steps you can take to resolve the situation.
First, assess the situation. Is your dog behaving aggressively or just being overly excited? Are there other people in the room who are upset by your dog’s behavior? These things will determine how you should proceed.
If your dog is behaving aggressively, it’s important to control him by using a leash and collar, or by holding him close to your body. Never yell at or hit a dog when he is acting aggressively—this will only make him more upset and more likely to attack someone else.
If your dog is just acting too excited and causing problems for other customers (e.g., jumping on them), try giving him treats when he stops jumping around. This can be done discreetly so as not to embarrass anyone else in the store who may be upset by his behavior.
If nothing works, simply lave the store with your dog.
