Pet dogs not welcome here, Canadian Tire Grande Prairie announces

Canadian Tire has a long-standing policy of leaving pet dog policies to its individual stores. However, it’s well known that the vast majority of Canadian Tire stores welcome pet dogs. And the chain’s Petco store-within-a-store was one of the best performing departments in Canadian Tire since the pandemic.

However, dogs can create messes that some customers find offensive. As a result, the Grande Prairie, Alta., Canadian Tire has introduced a No Dogs Allowed (except for service animals) policy in its store effective Jan. 1, 2024. The store’s Facebook page features a poster that explains the new policy (pictured).
