Clean up on Aisle 3.
If you think you’re seeing more dogs these days at your favorite hardware store or eatery, you’re not imaging things.
Metro businesses of all stripes, from Home Depot to Macy’s to your favorite al fresco haunt on the Marietta Square or along the Beltline, are allowing dogs on their premises to lure customers who don’t want to leave Fido at home.

“I think it is absolutely disgusting to bring animals into restaurants,” a poster called BonnieAkridge wrote in response to an ajc.com story on dog-friendly Atlanta restaurants. “They are dirty, their fur hides bugs that can easily jump onto you, some may even have diseases their owners don’t know about and all this is around people eating food.”
