There’s always an errand to run, but that doesn’t mean you need to leave your furry friend behind. Many businesses around Albany are pet-friendly and welcome well-behaved and leashed dogs to join you on your next trip.

Note: Though all the places on this list confirmed that dogs were allowed, it is always best to double-check as store managers are usually given the final discretion and policies can change.
