Smile Taking our Chihuahuas shopping?? Is this OK?

I was just reading through the posts about dog carriers and taking our babies with us places. I guess I was just curious as to how many people take their Chi's shopping, like the mall. I know I do, but I always get worried about what the store workers will say if they see her or whether they really care. I know in the US or at least Ohio, it's not really allowed, but I do it anyways. I guess my thinking on it is that she is a measley 2 lbs, in a carrier, and isn't causing any harm..so what's the big deal? Is it okay to take your dog into a store with you even if it is not for a disability??

I have never had an issue with taking Evian anywhere with me, except to the grocery store or any store that has food for sale in it...

In the uk we have signs everywhere saying no dogs except guide dogs. I'm going to sneak daisy in everywhere, i can't see the harm if they aren't on the floor or touching anything. I've carried her in my arms into shops and no one has said anything. I was planning on saying she was a large hamster!!
bella must have been ooonie noonie when you first got her!

I think most places here would say no, so the only place i have taken my girls into is Petshops so far.
Although the other day we were in The carphone warehouse and they let a woman in with a beautiful husky, so we know now if they let that one in then when i go back on Sunday i can take them with me this time, lol
I know they would not want our 3 huskies in though they are a bit nutty and full of beans, this one was so chilled, haha!!

i take my chis with me to all shops apart from food shops and places that sell drugs. (in a carrier or in my arms)
i havent had a problem, all the staff at the shop just smile or come over to stroke the dogs.
i've even took layla into topshop once and all the staff were stroking her!!

so i dont see a problem about taking your dogs into a shop as long as they are being carried and arnt on the floor

Hahahaha, a large hamster That made my day!!! I have went into places, such as Bath and Body Works, and when I was in line, someone behind me said, "Isn't that a dog carrier? Oh my gosh! I just saw a little head in there!" She could see Bella through the mesh in the carrier and when she said that, I bet my face was as red as an apple!! The worker looked at me and said, "I wanna see it!" So I unzipped the top and they seemed fine with it..But I always get cautious because you never know that first time when someone gets ticked off! Haha

I was wondering the same thing. I suppose all that can happen is they can come ask you to leave, or not bring the dog the next time. I personally don't see what the big deal is, IF the doggy is well-behaved and tucked safely in your person. Now, if it were barking, or walking on a leash that might be different. I would never bring Peanut into a fast food place or restaurant, but he will definitely start going on more outings with me now that I know he does okay on shorter car rides.
