Anchorage--a dog-friendly town

Things to bring to Alaska—pet supplies
Just as we could not bring along enough food for months of travel, we knew we would need to purchase pet food and treats during our Alaska stay. As it turned out, dogs are not just pets in Alaska. They are a lifestyle. We were set. Resources were all around.

Costco carries familiar brands. There are Petsmart stores in Anchorage. We also became fans of Alaska Mill and Feed in Anchorage, with its pet supply section that rivals big box stores plus a knowledgeable staff that is super helpful and willing to spend time helping customers make selections.
