No dogs allowed: Smart retailing?

Sorry, fellow dog-lovers but I agree that laws keeping dogs and other animals out of food stores and restaurants are there for a reason: public health. (And I agree that service dogs ought to be the exception to the rule.) The trend toward “humanizing” dogs and treating them like members of the family is real, and it’s also a business driver for retailers from big-box pet supply stores to boutiques. But public health concerns ought to trump “customer-friendly” policies for food resellers — at least as long as science dictates that these laws should be on the books.
