Dog Hotels, Dog botiques, everywhere even the neighborhood hosital allows this. The population is alternative type people and high paid Young Urban Professionals. It is not your average American neighborhood.


It's been on the news because of this?! Wow...

This would really weird me out too, and as a consumer, I believe you have every right to object and be concerned about health regulations/sanitation.

Animals are cool & all, buuuut........this is just crazy. Flat out, crazy.

I've seen this a lot since moving to the west coast. Within a couple of weeks being here, I saw a dog in the cart at Target and raised an eyebrow. A few minutes, later I encountered the cart again, but no dog. The dog was running around the clothing department and the owners are nowhere to be found.

I see dogs in stores here all of the time, and even in food establishments. I think it is a regional thing, because I don't recall seeing animals hardly ever in stores back east.

I think you should take to wearing surgical gloves and a mask at all times - and carry disinfectant wipes with you wherever you go. A gas mask wouldn't hurt either - maybe you can get a fireman's suit or something . . .

I think you should answer threads that are of some interest to you. Perhaps some where you can offer information that makes sense. You probably live in this neighborhood or San Fran or LA or some other place where behavior like this is probably common place. When its all added up its not the weird behavior that is the complete problem, its total disrespect for other people in public places. If I'm expected to be polite in public and courteous of others I expect the same of others.


Thanks everyone but I hesitated putting this on this website to begin with. Im going to contact the moderator to delete it or close it.

Thanks.

I think you are over-reacting. You complained to management. Get over it.

Unless it's a working dog, no dog (or animal) should be in a grocery store.

Here's an old article about it.

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/03/us/03dogs.html

Unless they are a service dog, I don't believe dogs should be allowed in any store except for a pet store where they are allowed. Some people don't like animals and people should be considerate of others...although we don't seem to have a considerate society anymore

To the OP...shop at a different store.

I went into a furniture store a few months ago and a middle aged couple had their big dog in the store with them. Not only was the dog in the store but the couple had him on the sofa checking it out
