Friendly dogs (on leashes) are always welcome at America’s Best Flowers.
If you forget to bring a leash, just stop at our Customer Service Desk or our perennial area and borrow one of ours. We’ll even have a bowl of fresh water for thirsty dogs inside the greenhouse.
Please keep your pet safe this summer! During warm weather it’s dangerous to leave your pet in the car for any amount of time. Running into a store for just a gallon of milk can even be too long!

On an 85 degree day, it only takes ten minutes for the inside of your car to reach 102 degrees even when the windows have been left open an inch or two. Within 30 minutes, a car’s interior can reach 120 degrees. When the temperature outside is a pleasant 70 degrees the inside of your car may be as much as 20 degrees hotter. Shade offers little protection on a hot day and moves with the sun.
Pets most at risk for hyperthermia (overheating): young animals, elderly animals, overweight animals, those with short muzzles and those with thick or dark-colored coats.
