• My ferret has a nose for Chianti. I would love to be able to take him to the off-licence on tasting day.
  • I think people who keep their pets clean and bathed should be allowed to bring their pets to stores and restaurants, but who's gonna set the standard for "cleanliness"? I've seen dirtier and smellier humans in stores! In Paris, dogs accompany their owners in restaurants all the time. People there think nothing of it since this is their custom.
  • Any store that would allow it, should be able to allow it though I'm sure there are laws preventing them from doing so, it should be the decision of the owner of the store only
  • I think it's not a terrible idea. The you break it you buy it would obviously be still in tact. Pet owners would be responsible for whatever their animal does. They would have a say, 3 strike, system where if the animal messes up enough the owner would be not allowed to bring them in again. The only thing that would have to be taken into consideration is the fact that some people are allergic to animals and if that got to be a problem things might need to be reconsidered.
  • I personally wouldn't like them there. If they were allowed, there would probably be many cases when the animal ate some food, or ran around and ruined everything. Other customers could be allergic to dog or cat hair, etc. or scared of the animal (I myself am NOT a dog person). There are so many potential things that would go wrong and I don't see a big need for pets to be allowed in the store anyways. So my answer is a NO.
  • I am a pet lover, but I still say no. funny though, I frequently see kids with rats, or snakes or parrots, and no one kicks them out, but you know I couldnt get a foot in the door with my dog...
  • NOPE. Never. It's a Health Code violation, just like No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service. And who wants to be dodging animal pee and poop as they shop. And what if your always peaceful pet suddenly decides not to get along with somebody else's always peaceful pet. No way.
  • I live with three cats. Believe me, you don't want their hair all over your produce.
  • No they shouldn't, but they do it all the time. I work in a grocery store and people try to do weird things.
  • No. I would love to be able to take my dog everywhere with me. But being around food that will belong to others is a matter of sanitation and would not be acceptable. I do like restaurants/cafes that have outdoor dining and allow dogs in that area.
  • HELL NO!! It's disgusting to have a dog in a retail store, grocery store, any type of store, or resturant. Strolling around or even being carried in a carrier or riding in the cart. People have allergies. And what about the food. Who wants to purchase food that has been stifed by a dog or touched by a person handling a pet. It should be completely against the law. Pets are just that, pets and should be left at home. I am just disgusted by the way people coddle their pets. Have a kid!
  • I hate when I see pets in the basket at the grocery store and the drug store. It is against the law, but for some reason, the store employees never make the people leave.
  • Much as I love cats and dogs, no, they don't belong in stores that sell people food and other items.
  • They're not allowed to in this area.

      Yea, but Captain Meow is more like a person, so surely we could let him stroll around the produce department and stand on the melons and lick himself. After all, many of the other customers do that...don they? Oh, that's just me? Oh.... *hangs head*

      I don't think you're the only one.
