I've been shopping at my local Argos for years and I've always taken my dogs in the shop with me without any problems. The staff and a lot of the customers like to make a fuss of them. I've been in today to collect my Granddaughter's birthday gifts and there's a new bloke working there. He's younger than my daughter and he said I wasn't allowed to take them in the store because they posed a hygiene risk. When I asked him what the hygiene risk was he couldn't answer my question and just kept repeating that they were a hygiene risk and there is a sign on the door that says no dogs. I pointed out that there had been a sign on the door for the last 20 years but no one had ever enforced it before and most of the staff are on good terms with my dogs and know their names. I understand that not everyone likes dogs but if they are well behaved and on a lead I can't see what the problem is in a shop like Argos. Food shops I understand they're not allowed in (even though I don't agree with it) and leave them outside. I changed my Bank from the TSB to Halifax because TSB wouldn't let me take my dogs in and now it looks like I'm going to have to give Argos a miss too Would you change where you shop to somewhere that welcomes your dogs?
