Well I've had I was in A Save A Lot Wednesday when I saw A family with A dog in the store I ask some of the employees when they started letting dogs in the store. They did address it with the man, first of all when they came in they put it in a cart(HELLO)they were ask to get it out of the cart and was that a seeing eye dog he said it was in training(right). I wish it was a seeing eye dog where he could find his way to the unemployment office then he wouldn't be drawing FOOD STAMPS if you can't afford food for yourself you don't need a dog, OH I FORGOT MY HUSBAND AND I GET TO WORK EVERY DAY SO YOU CAN STAY HOME LAZY ASS. First of all a dog doesn't belong in a grocery store, if he didn't won't it to stay in the car he could have stayed outside in the shade with it while the lady shopped. Im getting sick and tired of seeing dogs in Walmart Lowes and any other stores. My husband and daughter are alergic to dogs and I don't care who this makes mad love your animals but leave there little asses out of the stroes unless its the pet store or a service dog.

I will have to say I agree 100%! I have a dog who is like my child, however, I would never bring him to a grocery store or other store and think that it's okay to do so. Although your dog may be gentle and you think that it would never turn on anyone or bite someone, you never know. They are animals! They have bad days sometimes too and you may not realize it. Also, so many people these days do not teach their children that it is wrong to go up to a strange dog and just start petting it! A child who startles a dog is in great danger of being biten, then what? People, if you want to take your dog for a ride in the car and take them out with you, do so, however, it is not appropriate for an animal to be in a store. Yes, dogs are sometimes a lot better behaved then children, but, there's a place and time for everything. If you want to take them shopping, take them to pet smart or Vance's, not to the grocery store!!!

I love seeing dogs anywhere I go.

Ban the welfare trash...let the dogs in!

I'm SOoooo tired of hearing "My brat is allergic to this and that"...the world doesn't revolve around youi and your kid! What the hell do you want, for us to sterilize the whole world so your kid doesn't sneeze?

I love the fact that there are some stores in Glasgow, where the owners/employees bring their dogs and let them roam the aisles or stay behind the counter.

Where I used to live, there was this auto parts store where they had a 180 lb. bullmastiff named Hannibal who'd roam the aisles.

I saw more than one customer walk in the door...take one look at the huge dog, and turn around and walk out. Me, I'd go out of my way to go there to see the dog.

If there's a "no pets allowed" sign, then people should respect the business-owner's rules. Jeez, how much brain power does it take to comprehend basic concepts?

I agree with you Otj!! People also need to remember that service dogs are used for all kinds of different illnesses, not just seeing eye dogs. Some children even have them for seizures and are allowed to take them to school (which is wonderful)

I agree if its a service dog I have no problem with it. That person cannot function without the dog. This is for OTJ if you could be around and see the effect a dog has on my husband and grown daughter you would think different. They should not have to suffer just because people can't leave little fidoe at home.

I call shenanigans on this one! Service dogs don't ride in grocery carts. Those people were either full of crap or have no IDEA what they're doing training that dog!

Saw a small dog in a grocery cart last week in Wal-Mart. Poopy, pissy, dogs do not need to be in carts, that is where our food goes. Most people say their little house dogs are so clean. When they pee, that pee gets on their legs and feet, which are in the food cart. When they poop, their little butts are later sitting in the food cart. Every time anyone see's this happening, you should ask a clerk to have a store manager to come up front, and bring it to his attention.

I have several comments and points to make:

I would think the health dept would have authority over this if it is a store that sells food.

Does a store have to take the person's word that it is a service dog? I agree with prior post that a service dog doesn't ride in a cart.

I must add to the above post that people put their babies in diapers in carts too and those babies pee and poop as well. I have seen some children a lot more dirty than some dogs.

I am a dog owner and believe me, I love the dog but I don't need him with me every waking moment. I can't imagine trying to do my shopping and watching after a dog.

In some places in Europe, dogs are welcomed everywhere. It is common to see a woman dressed to the nines in a ritzy department store with a little dog on a leash.

This wasn't a service dog it was a pup but a very large one he was just being a smart A. He couldn't train his way out of a paper bag. If I had been the manager he would have taken the dog outside. Who cares if he got mad I was mad and the lady in front of me was fighting mad.

The easiest solution is for anyone who objects to the dogs at Walmart and Save a Lot. is to tell management you will not be back to their store if they are allowing non service dogs in. Then leave your fully packed cart in the middle of the aisle and walk out. If enough people complain and it affects the stores profit, they will then change their policy.

I don't doubt that the reactions can be severe/annoying. But suppose they were allergic to perfume/cologne? Would you advocate that people be banned from wearing perfume/cologne in public?

Would their reaction be any different if the dog were a service dog or a police dog?

My point is: That the whole world doesn't have to cater to the problems of some people with certain ailments. Other people have a right to enjoy their lives too and shouldn't have to be restricted because somebody else has a problem. It should be up to the person with the ailment to adapt and make the necessary adjustments/take necessary steps to ensure their comfort/safety.

I have a physical ailment myself that can be quite a problem, but I don't expect the rest of the world to inconvenience itself and deprive itself and cater to me. It is MY problem, and up to ME to compensate and not impose my burdens on others.

Personally, I'd like to see more dogs in Save-A-Lot and Wal*Mart...and less kids. The dogs are quiet and don't smell as bad.

Heck I had rather have dogs in grocery stores. Dogs is cleaner than most people I see in stores. At least the dogs is not handling all the meat in the meat dept. People looks And smells like they hadn't seen a bath in a month. Smell like ass odor and body odor. How bout letting the dogs do the shopping and leave their skanky stinking owners stay outside. I know I hate to eat the meat that these nasty smelly people has handled. More than likely them nasty people just been to the bathroom took a dump didn't even wash their hands then handling everything in store YUCK! At least dogs and cats clean themselves.!

there are service animals for lots of reasons as stated above......even anxiety...along with seizures as well.....everybody neds to mind there own buisness and if you dont want to go to a store that does this then stay HOME. Complaining about someones service animal is childish and just plain mean.....oh but i forgot putting that complaint on topix is childish in itself...lmao

Shopper this was not a service dog, it could have been a dog for just plan old lazy. If that had been a pet store no problem, don't bring a dog in a grocery store and put it in a cart where im gonna put my food. GET REAL.

You can't leave animals in cars anymore. The heat is deadly even in the shade. The police will ticket offenders and/or call animal control. I don't Blame them for bringing them in...asking as they are restrained and fully potty trained then quit complaining. Many places allow pets now and I bet if it was a rich family with their pet wearing a gilded color there'd be less complaints. I take my dog with me everywhere. She's training to be a Special Needs service dog. She'll have a tag to prove it when complete. Did you know stores aren't legally supposed to harass those with dogs incase they are for disability purposes? Unless not potty trained, not restrained or causing problems most places allow them. In my case, I use a carrier while shopping to cut down on possible hair or accidents and to allow her privacy preventing selfish people from throwing a fit.

I used to work with the disabled, some of whom had service dogs and I never saw one in a shopping cart. The dogs I saw always walked by the owner's side.

What's the difference? Why should the able-bodied not be allowed to have what the disabled can have?
