Are you really that concerned about the food being contaminated? Really? Or is it that you don't like animals, which is fine. I have no problem with it - obviously because I have 3 dogs and have brought them into establishments that I know allow dogs. I wouldn't just assume that I could bring them in however.

I also agree that people that bring their dogs into coffee shops, etc typically have them under control. Unlike many parents nowadays.

I see it all the time here in Chicago. We have a lot of outdoor resturants and it never fails someone always has their dog with them.
Believe me, by hanging around dogs, your immunosystem will be stronger and you will not have to worry about dog flu if it will ever hit us. Good for you!!!

I'm grossed out by buffets, actually...who knows where these people have put their hands before they reach into that pile of cornbread? Or how many have colds and sneeze their nasty little germs right into the salad? YUCK! My dogs are cleaner than most people...with much better manners, I might add...lol!

You ARE able to leave if you don't like it.
Couldn't have said it better myself. In fact, when it comes to hman hair n my food, I am repulsed. My dog's hair, no worries

LOL, there's an almost indentical thread up and running in the Shopping forum w/ similar responses

I love dog friendly stores and make a point to remember them and visit them. if the coffee shop allows dogs, what's the problem? service dogs aren't germ free, so if the lab was a guide dog, you'd still end up w/ germs in your food, if that's your main concern. best bet is to visit a business w/ a sign that expressly says "no dogs".

rather have a nice dog in a coffee shop than a bratty kid or nasty homeless guy hanging out near the registers or door begging for money (I swear, there are certain businesses in downtown Chicago that seemingly allow homeless people to beg for money inside the business. I've seen this happen a few times at some locations)

In many cases, I'd rather eat food around somebody else's dog rather than sharing the company of that somebody else. Dogs seldom annoy.

gee-whiz maybe it's just me but that is nasty. It's a animal not a human. I do think there are certain people in the US that do not see anything wrong with it. Any many times these "certain people" kiss their dogs also. Imagine kissing something that sniffs Moderator cut: bleep !
That's your opinion. I've seen a ton of little kids that are much dirtier and less behaved than my dogs. I'd much rather eat someplace with well behaved pets than with someone's squalling little brat. But it's ok to bring them to restaurants and ruin other people's meals. And I grit my teeth and bear it. Just because they think their kid is cute when it runs in circles in the restaurant and screams when it doesn't get it's way doesn't mean I think it's cute. Quite frankly I'd love to shove a sock down their throats and tie them to their seat.

But that's just me.
