I am really surprised that so many are okay with dogs being in restaurants. I remember a thread where people said they won't go to dinner at a dog person's house, or even eat food given them by someone who has a dog.

I have a dog. I love him. He is not allowed in our kitchen when we eat.

I would definitely be bothered if restaurants were full of dogs. I have no idea how clean other people's dogs are...dogs shed and their hair flies around. I don't think I'd return to a restaurant that allows dogs but I am also non confrontational, and I doubt I would complain either. I just wouldn't go back.

I wouldn't say anything. If it was wandering around under my table, I'd complain. If it was stabbing my in the leg with a fork, I'd complain .

Working dogs should be welcome everywhere! But someone just bringing their dog to a restaurant, I wouldn't like that at all! I love dogs, but I never would have brought my dog to a restaurant. He would have loved it though!

No; I'd be jealous. I wish we were a more dog friendly country and could bring our dogs more places.

I like dogs but feel that only service animals belong in a restaurant with it's owner. I'm allergic to them and am also afraid of big dogs since I was attacked by one as a child while riding my bike. I probably wouldn't have said anything though but don't fault the OP for doing so. People who think the rules don't apply to them really irritate me!

If the dog was behaving then I think anyone who complains is a busy body. It wasn't a big dog running up to everyone's table so what's the big deal.

I also would rather have a quite dog then yelling kids at the restaurant any day.

I'm in the service dog only camp. If I brought my cat, bird or pet rat into a restaurant would you be okay with that?

I probably wouldn't have said anything, but I don't like seeing dogs in places where they really don't belong. I have a little 3 pound yorkie and I wouldn't dream of taking her in a restaurant of any kind.
