Can you take a dog (on a leash,of course) into a Tractor Supply store?

    We have to take Kane to the vet on Thursday. Since there's a TSC store in a town close to the town where the vet's office is, I figured we'd stop in at the TSC, but I can only do it if we can take Kane in the store with us; won't leave him in the car by himself.

    We've taken Moxie into the TSC store near us. We were a little apprehensive at first, but then that quickly went away. They were super friendly and the cashier even gave Moxie a biscuit! [​IMG]:)

    Quote:Ok thanks. We usually go to Atwoods, which is alot like TSC and Atwoods does allow dogs, so I thought TSC might too. Kane is still small enough he can ride in the shopping cart.

    Probably depends on the store. I know in our small town, people bring pets in all the stores, even saw a girl with a kitten in the grocery store the other day. We're in a small country town, and nobody really cares if pets are brought in stores, in fact most store owners around here bring there dogs with them.

    I'd call the store and ask - just in case.

    I still get hassled even though my dog is in her Service Dog Vest.


    But then again she isn't your normally expected Service Dog (not a German Shepard or Lab) and I don't have a visual handicap.


    ETA---I love when someone says to me in a snotty way, "You don't look handicapped". I respond with, "Well, you don't look stupid either but I guess looks can be deceiving" I know, I'm bad.

    I've taken my boy into both TSCs in town here in Michigan. As long as they're leashed, I don't think they care.

    There's a TSC not too far from us that does rescue events and even a vaccination clinics ( I think once a month ) for dogs. I'd just call and ask to be sure though.
