  1. Aw, that’s too bad. Why wouldn’t the stores also turn a blind eye to some of the most disrespectful sect of dog owners in the country? I mean everyone in Echo Park seems to not care one bit about all the owners letting their dogs crap in other people’s yards (or the middle of the sidewalk, or in planters, or anywhere… doesn’t matter, they aren’t gonna pick it up), or the constant all-day & all-night barking, or the ignored leash laws, etc.

  2. There are some places you should take your dogs but they don’t have to go everywhere you go. Anyone can slap a vest on a dog and declare it a service animal these days. I’ve seen them in markets IN shopping carts, at department stores where one woman was strolling a puppy around like a baby. Short of being blind, if you think you can’t make it through the day without your mutt tagging along, you probably shouldn’t be out anyway.

  3. As soon as these shops start having difficultly paying the rent, they might need to change the policy.

  4. As one who is highly allergic to animal dander I applaud the places that say NO to dogs. To say nothing of the fact it’s s health hazard in any food or dining establishment plus being against the law to bring animals of any kind. Due to pet owners treating their pets as though they were babies and taking them shopping and on planes, trains and everywhere they go it is forcing me to be unable to go anywhere due to my allergy senetivity and I find that totally unacceptable. We all fought the cigarette industry because it was bad for the health of everyone around the smokers thus all public places are now smoke free ncluding planes and trains so why does that not also apply to animals? I am not the only person with this severe allergy. There are hundreds if not thousands of us and in this era of trying to keep our lives on a healthy platform why can I not have that same thing???

    One more reason I will not be stepping into your gross store.
