Downtown Grand Haven shop owner Tonya Christiansen definitely allows canine friends in her store. In fact, her business — Must Love Dogs, 211 Washington Ave. — is all about dogs and their needs.

Christiansen and Dana Kollewehr, executive director of the Grand Haven Main Street Downtown Development Authority, said there a many more dog-friendly downtown stores. They typically don't mind dogs in their store as long as their tails don't knock over the merchandise.

"I ask them before coming in," Christiansen said.
