And...Italy Just Introduced Dog-Friendly Grocery Carts
No puppy left behind
The grocery store owner of Unes in Liano, Italy started giving these dog friendly shopping carts to dog owning patrons to relax their process of picking up goods. Gianfranco Galantini saw too many people scrambling in the shop while their dogs waited outside. The carts create a more thorough shopping experience while keeping the dogs safe and the shoppers content. Read more about the grocery store and their program on thisdogslife.co.
You’re running errands with your pooch Baxter in tow, and you are not about to leave him in the car or tie him up outside just to go food shopping. What are you to do? What are you to do? A grocery store in Italy found the ultimate fix: Shopping carts for dogs.
Indeed, these special grocery carts feature a metal compartment designed to comfortably accommodate a 25-pound dog or smaller, and with enough room for him to stand and sniff all the delicious supermarket scents. (Oh, and FYI, the carts are wiped down after every use.)
Crazy efficient? Yes. Cute as hell? Absolutely. The owner plans to roll them out in more Italian stores soon, but fingers crossed this brilliant design makes its way stateside.
