They have these at Six Flags near my house, and a few small stores. I can honestly say NO. It stresses the majority of dogs out far worse than being left home would. And as Nancy pointed out, infections/worms/fleas and such are likely not moderated in all places. I know Six Flags requires proof of pets being UTD on vaccines, and flea/tick prevention. But I also know other smaller places that do not even bother to check.
