A woman has revealed the lengths one Bunnings store is willing to go to keep her furry friend happy.

Pets are permitted in Bunnings, but only if they are secured safely in a trolley, on a lead and muzzled, or being carried by their owner.

It means many people often bring their dogs along to the shop.

One woman tweeted when she goes to Bunnings they “often” give cardboard to people visiting with their dogs.

However, another woman claims her Bunnings store has gone a step further and tweeted a photo of her happy dog sitting in a trolley.

“Our Bunnings now gives fake grass mat for them to sit on,” she tweeted.

It’s not clear which Bunnings store she goes to but she is a Melbourne resident.

However, it may not have been a one-off, as she claims, either. Another man tweeted a photo of his sausage dog also sitting on fake grass in a trolley at Bunnings in December.

Bunnings has been contacted for comment.

Bunnings clone emerges

A hardware chain in the Philippines has raised a few eyebrows due its stunning resemblance to Bunnings Warehouse.

Builders Warehouse, which was founded in the Philippines in 2018, delivers “first-class construction materials to everyone who needs a hand in home building”, according to its website.

It’s a much younger store than Bunnings Warehouse which began as Bunnings Brothers in 1907 before the first Bunnings Warehouse opened in Melbourne in 1994.

A peek inside the Builders store in Malolos, Philippines shows the store has an aisle for “cookies, snacks, candies” and a dairy aisle for “last minute groceries”. 

Builders Warehouse also sells alcohol, sporting items and many household products.
