I'm talking about going to dog-friendly locales; anywhere you can think of.
Stores, parties, restaurants, visiting friendly homes, parks, walks, etc etc.

Just curious, since I bring mine basically everywhere even if it's mildly inconvenient!

Anywhere/anytime I can bring them, they are with me. Especially Duke, he's my constant companion. I honestly would never leave him home if it was up to me.

We took Havoc everywhere with us until he decided to stay home. I think that he got sick of waiting in the car while we ran errands and we weren't going to enough fun places due to my husband's health. He started balking at the car so we left him loose in the house. Now he gets in the car if we say "class", "pet store" or "vacation". It's kind of nice that we understand each other.

a well trained dog is a privileged dog so they can go to a lot
of places and they're invited to a lot of places. i like the phrase
"mildly inconvenient".

I voted 80-100, the "girls" are normally always with me, doesn't matter where I'm going, they would sit in my car all day long and be fine with it

For us, it depends on the weather. Summer 0-30% rest of the year 30-50%. We live in Kansas where summer temps are often in the 90's & 100's. That's too hot for her to stay in a vehicle, even with the windows cracked. I'm hoping to eventually move further north.

If I could I would bring Stella with me all the time, even to work. That is a big reason I am working very hard to get her dog reactivity under control! She is fine with people and has a fairly mellow personality so she could easily come to a lot of different places with me. I wish more stores and restaurants were dog friendly. As it is, she comes with me on my errands as long as it is not too hot. And if I can bring her when I visit friends or family, I don't hesitate!
I read something about a boat trip that is dog friendly in Boston Ma....That is on my list as soon as she gets her dog reactivity under control!!!
