    Dog friendly, but very busy

    They are very welcoming, but it is extremely busy with people. If your dog is very friendly then you will be fine. Most people will come up to pet them.

    Great place to walk around

    My dogs enjoyed walking around and smelling everything. We struck up a conversation with a gentleman that works there who is also a dog lover. You can see bears in the back for $3/person too!

    Yep! They love dogs. Even give free pup cups at the ice cream stand.

    A+ for a welcoming staff and free pup cup! We were very welcomed in the store. We got stopped multiple times by staff for pets.

    Great place to shop

    this was a great place to find hidden treasures. However there were several small semi aggressive dogs and shoulder to shoulder people.

    A Great Place to Bring Fido!

    This shop has just about a bit of everything. You’ll find name brands along with other brands. We have also found that most of the staff are dog lovers. Be prepared for pets and scritches!

    Great Store!!

    What a great store! So much to see in this two story building. Staff is friendly, and most everyone met Tasia. We always stope by on our visits so that Tasia can see the bears. She LOVES watching them!

    Great place

    Our pups were welcomed with open arms. Sniffed their way around and stopped for lots of pets. Most people were respectful and asked if they could pet them too.

    Always Been a Favorite

    My husband and I have been going to Three Bears since before we had our pups. We have enjoyed this store for 10 years now and it cannot be beat! Now that we have our two golden lab mixes, we love it even more because they’re welcome inside while we shop! We came in yesterday and the girls got so much attention. Everyone loved to stop and pet them. While you’re here pick up a package of their pineapple pecan chicken salad mix. I get one every visit — it’s so good!
