What stores can I bring my small dog into without having to sneak her in?

I live in Phoenix, AZ and I hate leaving my little baby at home. She is very small and would be in a carrier. So what stores am i allowed to bring her in that are pet friendly? I understand I cannot bring her into stores with food, but please give me some ideas! Thank you.

    NONE AT ALL EXCEPT PET STORES, if they allow it.
    This s not a guide dog or a service dog so Leave it at home where it belongs.

    People with small dogs who think they are entitled to go in any store piss me off. Your dog is a dog. not a baby. It is perfectly fine left at home while you go shopping for a bit. Quit humanizing the damn thing.

    No one wants your dog in the store unless it is a pet store.

    I take my dogs into Home Depot, Pet Smart, and Petco.

    Honestly if your dog is in a carrier you can really take it anywhere you want. If someone asks you to leave then you know not to go back there with your dog.

    ADD: Rotten has an excellent point. My dogs do walk whereever I take them- that includes my two Pomeranians.

    Gees stores are for people, no one wants to be shopping with some barking dog, leave the critter at home or take it to the pet stores. Their feet should be on the ground not bundled up in a pocketbook

    You should really leave your pet at home when you go shopping! It’s not only safer for your dog, but people don’t really expect to be near a dog when they go to a store shopping. ( Except for an occasional "service" dog! ) Some people are very, very allergic to an animal! Imagine placing another human in distress because they are allergic to dogs and you are shopping near them in a store, and all at once they can’t breathe or break out in hives because of your dog. It can happen! You used to be able to smoke cigarettes in public too, but now because of "second hand smoke" effecting innocent bystanders in public, you can no longer smoke in a store, restaurant, bar, etc. Next on the list is perfumes! There’s a lot of people who have an allergic reaction such as hives or severe headache when someone nearby is wearing perfume! Sorry I can’t support you taking a dog into a public store where there’s a confined air space. I know a person who must cross the street if they see a dog that will pass nearby them, just to keep from sneezing controlled for the next several hours. That’s outside! Imagine if they walked by you in a store with your dog in a carrier they didn’t notice! There’s a reason, ( allergies ), they don’t allow dogs ( pets, not service animals ), into stores. Just think how glad your pet will be to see you come home from a shopping trip!
