the idea isn't taking the dog with you to leave it in the car which
i think is totally the wrong thing to do. the idea is taking the dog
inside the store, visiting people with dog, sitting at an eatery
with the dog, running errants but having the dog at your side, etc.

He comes to the park with me and to my dog friends' houses. He also comes to the pet food shop. I have brought him into a grocery store before (they allow dogs if the dog is well behaved, it's a local shop) but I prefer not to because those floors are so slippery that it's like I'm playing bowling in the aisles with my dog.

I try to take Viking wherever I can. Lately I haven't been bringing him to as many places (used to be every time I ran errands) because it's just too hot to leave him in the car.

Due to the hot climate and lack of places that allow dogs, it's difficult to take my pets with me as often as I'd like. We do plan outings around the dogs. And try to take them to at least one dog friendly place a week.

I bring Hunter with me everywhere possible. He's my constant companion in life, and I would never have him out of my sight if it were possible.

When i just had one dog it was much easier to take her "everywhere" with me. Two dogs, not so much.

They both go every Tuesday night to training, and I alternate taking them to go buy dog (or cat) food with me every week. I might take one of them with me if I'm going to run to the bank drive thru....

I take them to my breeder's house maybe once a week to run in the woods (or in the enormous runs with jumps). They go to dog shows now that it's "dog show season" again.

It's just too hot in Oklahoma for several months to take your dog anywhere if you have to leave it in the car.

I used to take my oldest dog with me everywhere until her hip started getting bad,now I have to limit the amount of constant walking she can do. As far as the fosters go,it really depends on the dogs. I do however try to take all of them with me about once a week. Otherwise I alternate dogs. Honestly, my oldest doesn't really like going everywhere the way she used to.

I would LOVE to take Harley everywhere with me, I had this planned before I got him; he was going to be my companion at my side 24/7. But he is FA and very uncomfortable in different situations/places. I still love him to death, I am just upset that I can't take him places with me, he would much rather stay inside the yard/house all day. The next puppy will me with me ALL the time. (no offense to Harley...)

Everywhere possible. If it's fall/spring/winter and it is cold enough, I even bring him along if I can't bring him in the store because he enjoys the ride so much.

On occasion he doesn't come along due to how long I expect to be in a store or something, so it's not quite 100% of the time, but maybe 90% of the time excepting when it's not possible due to safety concerns.
