Retail giant John Lewis has lifted its ban on all dogs in their stores after a customer questioned the policy via Twitter. As long as pooches are well-behaved, they are now welcome to join us on our shopping sprees!

Until recently, John Lewis would only allow assistance dogs onto their patch.

An adorable request

But the store decided to review the policy after one dog lover asked if she could bring her pooches along for a visit to the Milton Keynes store. The post read:

“Erm… excuse me @jlandpartners @jlpartnership are all your John Lewis Stores dog-friendly?

“We would like to visit Milton Keynes...on Thursday. Nothing do to with Mum wanting to go."

And after one look at these adorable pups, a pair of terriers named Scrappy, Nelson and Duncan, the department store bigwigs just couldn't say no!

Then again, when you're this cute, that's probably not a word you hear very often!

The new policy comes into effect immediately, but there are some house rules for all four-legged visitors. John Lewis will welcome all dogs providing they're well-behaved and remain on a leash at all times.

A tweet from the store read:

"Hi! We’ve decided to allow all customers, not just those with assistance dogs, to bring their dogs into our shops with immediate effect."

“Well behaved dogs only will be allowed in our shops, and they must be on a fixed lead at all times, unless they are being carried.”

Make us proud boys

Scrappy and his brother are said to be delighted at the news and very much looking forward to the upcoming adventure. Just remember, boys; be on your best behaviour. You're representing every other dog that's trying to get a paw through the door.

John Lewis isn't the only dog-friendly department store. Both Liberties and Selfridges welcome furry shoppers, although the world-famous Harrods of London still maintains a strict no pooch policy.

Come on, guys! Get with the times!
