Are dogs allowed on public transportation?
We don't have public transportation here, small town. Wink
Not sure if the dogs are allowed on a subway or a bus in the big cities. I know in some places at least the guide dog of people with blindness are allowed onto the bus. Not sure about other dogs. There was a video of a pet goat got into a subway train, but I forgot where it was.

Here we have one park with a sign to tell people not to bring in dogs. It is a place for BBQ.

Most stores obviously wouldn't allow dogs to go in. Once at a small grocery store, I saw a dude left his dog at the door, but after a minute the dog went in to look for him. The store clerk didn't say anything. Big Grin

Back in my university, I have seen people with dogs inside the building once or twice. Nobody ever said anything.

What are some other public places off-limits to dogs where you live?

RE: Are dogs allowed on public transportation?
In Malaysia, where I live now, dogs are definitely not allowed on any kind of public transport. In Thailand, I can take a dog on a train, provided it's a small dog and it's in a crate. In Thailand there are also a lot of dogs which belong to no one and belong to everyone, if you understand what I mean. The Thai people would feed any stray dogs they see living in their area. They look upon the dogs as some kind of unpaid security service.

Dogs definitely aren't allowed on public transit. Guide dogs are the exception, of course, but that's because they are given the travel rights of humans and can go anywhere that their owner does.

Beyond that, they aren't allowed in stores or restaurants generally. When I lived in Vancouver, I was amazed to see that people took their dogs out everywhere and it wasn't uncommon to see them sitting outside with their owners at cafes and restaurants. Every place I've lived in the States, though, doesn't allow that. You might occasionally see people sneak small ones in their bags into grocery stores or dorm rooms, but it's usually frowned upon.

I used to live in the high country of Colorado. One thing I liked about living there is that Summit County allowed dogs just about anywhere. Dogs were allowed in banks, grocery stores, and some restaurants. You do not usually see that in the big cities.

However, even in Summit County, I do not think they were allowed on public transportation.

RE: Are dogs allowed on public transportation?
I don't think dogs are allowed on public transportation in my area in California. If they are allowed (on buses, subway, etc.) they must be in a crate. Service dogs, of course, are allowed.

They are not allowed on most school playgrounds and parks in my area.

One thing really surprised me is that some stores do allow dogs. Some have no policy towards them. I have seen people bring in small dogs in purses and tote bags. The store clerks say nothing.

RE: Are dogs allowed on public transportation?
Only at certain times of the day. On weekends they're allowed all day, but on weekdays they are only allowed during non-rush hour times. What I don't understand is that a quiet dog who just minds his or her own business is banned from entering a bus at 6 p.m., but a parent is allowed to bring an SUV stroller on a packed vehicle. Amazing!

RE: Are dogs allowed on public transportation?
Dogs are not allows on public transportation where we live. I live in Wisconsin and they would never allow them on any type of public transportation. However, dogs are also not allowed in stores, but there are many people with small dogs that I see sneak them in their purses and things like that. It is kind of silly if you ask me. The only types of dogs that are allowed in public places are dogs that lead the blind, etc.

Dogs are not allowed on public transportation in post cities. However, if they are registered as a service dog then yes. You can't be denied that. Not all service dogs are for the blind or deaf though. I've seen emotional support pets as well.

Emotional support pets? That's interesting. So how does a dog get trained to give emotional support? And how can a dog be registered as an emotional support pet?

RE: Are dogs allowed on public transportation?
I live in Toronto, Ontario and here it's really common for dogs to go into public transit with their owners - of course these dogs needs to be held with a leash to ensure they don't just anyone, but it's allowed. I think here, it's more based on your dog - if your dog is good and behaves well with other people, then it's okay but if your dog starts causing problems, you'll probably get kicked off the bus. There aren't too many 'off-limits' places for dogs here but I know that some buildings don't allow you to have them but that's normal, I think.

RE: Are dogs allowed on public transportation?
Like most people have stated for the most part in my state dogs aren't allowed on public transportation. The only exception to this are guide dogs because they are serving a purpose. Also, these dogs have been well trained to understand when they are suppose to sit and stay. I guess I can understand why public transportation won't allow all dogs on buses, they can't run the risk of a dog getting out of control on the bus.

Where I live, you can only brings dogs on the bus if they are assistance dogs. Even though I love animals, for the most part, I think this is a good thing. The bus is too small, and to have animals on board would just cause chaos. The animals would be stressed in that environment, and they may lash out at people.

RE: Are dogs allowed on public transportation?
Dogs are not allowed on public transportation nor in restaurants. There are some parks or park areas specifically for dogs but in most public places, dogs need to be on leashes. You may need to use a taxi with your dog in a crate, in order to go anywhere with your dog in public. Too many people allergic to dogs, too many incidents of strangers being bitten by dogs, too many people not cleaning up after their dogs, too many dogs not being properly trained, and the list goes on. If we lived in a world where dogs were properly trained, people were properly trained to respect dogs, and people cleaned up after their dogs, then, perhaps, dogs would be allowed on public transportation.
