Being an owner of large dogs all my life it never occurs to me to take my Chi's anywhere. I would be far too embarrassed to quite frankly, unless they were hidden completely in an incognito bag/carrier and that certainly wouldn't be at all fair on them.

LOL, just imagine if every dog owner out there regardless of size/breed etc decided they could take their dogs everywhere with them, because they love them so much, they have a need to be noticed and have people telling them their dog is precious, the dog suffers separation anxiety so must go with them (whereby by the owner's actions are helping to create said anxiety), their owners don't feel safe without them (Americans are lucky they have guns) and a plethora of other reasons they could all come up with. I think there's quite enough dog friendly places outdoors without foisting our animals' dander, hair & skin flakes on the population at large. All just my opinion of course.

We will take one to hardware stores and any or all of them to garden centers (many here offer water bowls and openly welcome dogs) and of course car shows and car events.

They go for a lot of "rides" for instance if husband goes to auto parts places. Girls and I stay in the car.

I'm the same as you Karen, I take maya on a lot of "trips". Gas station, drive thrus for a coke, etc. shes definitely used to the car! On the weekends we typically make a trip to the plants section at Home depot. She's popular there now, lots of awes and oohs. She's getting a big head I think i'm not very creative with where to take her, so Im interested to hear others chime in.

Poor Jaxx the only store he goes to is Petsmart but I almost always take him there with me.

I take him to parks and hiking trails but as for stores Petsmart is it.

We've taken Odie quite a few places. She's been to the local gardening centre, furniture store (Urban Barn), the patios at a few different Starbucks locations, and of course every pet store we come across. I don't take her in a carrier, she just walks. The reason I actually visited the furniture store in the first place was because of their dog friendly sign in the window (it says "We LOVE your dogs!" and has a silhouette of a daschund).

We vacation in the same spot a lot, and the whole area is extremely laid back and totally dog friendly. Most restaurant patios even have built-in hardware to attach your dog's leash to near your table, as well as water. There is a trendy indoor/outdoor oyster bar, and an employee's dog is there everyday. It's a super busy place, and nearly every time we pass by there are 2-3 big dogs patiently waiting as their owners eat.

I'm a HUGE outdoors fan, so I take my Chi and my bigger dogs out 4 times per
day on long walks, for a total of about 7 hours. We go to the mountain, parks,
forests, fields, or simply walk around the city. On weekends we go up north,
enjoy the freedom there. The only time my Chi is in a carrier is when we take
a taxi somewhere, because it is required by them, and we do not have a car.
I'm not too big on taking my dogs to stores, I don't like going to them myself.
They do go with me to the pet related businesses, and outdoor coffee places,
that's about it. I definitely think a dog of any breed is happiest outside running
and playing instead of riding in a hot purse all day, store to store.
