People walking their dogs or pushing them in carts is a common sight in some Lodi stores and at public events in Downtown.

But many local eateries don’t permit pets anywhere inside food and dining areas, including patios, due to health codes. Services dogs are the only exception.

    Enough with the attention to dogs! The Lodi Snooze is guilty of it and it only encourages dog owners to get their way. Can't dog people leave their dog at home for just a few hours? It's not like its a baby left at home unattended. Train you dog that sometimes you have to leave home for a few hours. Some times I feel dog owners are sick. They have humanized animals to such an extent that they just can't separate themselves from them. Well, if that is the case stay home with it. Non-dog owners are at the point if dogs are in abundance in the public square they just as soon stay home. What about people that are alergic to dogs? Has our Governor considered that? Why must dogs be allowed to in the vicinity where food is served? This is bad business. I for one will walk out of a restaurant without paying for my tab (unless it is a seeing eye dog). I encourage people that feel the same way as I do to do the same. Maybe restaurants will think twice before catering to dog owners. Last note; dog owners, take your dogs to a picnic in the wilderness not in the city limits or leave them at home.
