Bass Pro in Altoona is for the Dogs!

We love our canine customers at the Altoona, Iowa, Bass Pro Shops! Sporting or non-sporting dogs, we welcome well-socialized and well-behaved dogs on a leash. Now, as we note below, this does not apply at every store. Check with the Bass Pro store you'll be visiting beforehand.

ScooterNeed treats and toys for your dog?  We have those, too!  Squeaky toys, chewies, dog throws, rawhide bones and more for dogs of all breeds and sizes!Hannah

Need supplies for your "working" dog?  There are neoprene and Kevlar boots and neoprene vests to help keep your dog protected while hunting, collapsible water bowls, and even flotation vests! Have a future canine hunter to work with?  We have dog training and tracking collars from RedHead, Garmin, Innotek, and training DVDs.

Have a dog that needs to know his or boundaries?  Bass Pro carries in-ground fencing systems.

For the aging dogs, and even not-so-aging, we have special treats and beds to keep them comfy and healthy!

Customers will sometimes bring their puppies or young dogs in to Bass Pro Shops to help get them socialized.  A good time to do the new introduction to this environment is during the weekday mornings or evenings. 

Twice monthly, Scout and his owner Jay come to the store to do a basic dog obedience demonstration.  Scout is a former K-9 and current therapy dog...his obedience skills are amazing!

Watch for upcoming events for rescue groups at the store! So, next time you come to Bass Pro Shops Altoona, bring your well-socialized canine buddy and we will be sure to spoil them rotten!

While most service animals are allowed inside Bass Pro Shops retail locations, further regulations may differ from store to store.  Please contact the store you will be visiting prior to arriving for information as to whether or not your pet will be allowed in the store.

My dog has been diagnosed with Lymphoma and has been given 30 days to live. I decided a trip to Bass Pro Shops would be a really nice treat for him. So i looked up online if they were pet friendly i came to this page so drove the 16 miles to Bass Pro shops in Mesa Az to walk in and be told only service dogs were allowed in the store. To say i was disappointed is an understatement! You should list which stores are the exceptions to your rules about being pet friendly 32 miles is a long drive for a sick dog to make for nothing!

Bass Pro Shops is NOT for dogs!
I called several locations in florida to see if i can take my 4m old pup with me and all of them told me they were not pet friendly due to selling food items and having a restaurant in the store. Im very upset i live in miami and would of drove to any Bass Pro just to have my pup with me.
Such a disappointment

Bass Pro is NOT pet friendly!! My husband took my 10-lb dog and me there to pass the time while he ran a work errand close by (we had the dog with us because we were on our way out of town on vacation). He had seen dogs in there before, and thought it would be OK. I had checked the website, which says they "love dogs", and welcome leashed dogs. Just to be safe, I called to check their pet policy, but it was right at 9:00 am and I couldn't reach a person on the phone. I arrived at 9:00 am, only to be turned around at the door! It turns out that the only pet-friendly part of the store is the LOBBY!! My dog and I had to sit and wait for an hour and a half until my husband returned. I couldn't even use the restroom. The website information is false and completely misleading. As a customer who has spent thousands of dollars with Bass Pro over the years, this is a slap in the face!

We visited the Bass Pro in Altoona, IA with our 55 pound corgi/lab mix, and we loved it! Our dog really enjoyed the large aquarium, and lounging at our feet while we shopped. Thanks, Bass Pro! We are customers for life!
