Say Hello To IKEA ‘Barking Lots’

Woof.

Finally, an answer to the age old question of “what’s a puggle to do while its owner shops for moderately priced build-it-yourself Swedish furniture?”

In addition to the flaxas and fjellses we all know and love, IKEAs in Germany have added doggie parking lots to their stores for a pet-friendlier shopping experience. Outfitted with leash posts and water bowls, these individual astroturf hangout pads are bone-afide cool. Never leave your pooch in an overheated Subaru while you and your S.O. argue about what kind of malm goes with your dombås ever again.
