Sorry but as a parent of a child who is petrified of dogs (and most animals, no bad experience it’s just how she is) I am shocked that ordinary pet dogs would even be allowed into Bunnings! I have no problems with guidance dogs – and while my daughter doesn’t like them around she tolerates them (but won’t go near them) as she can see the full harness they wear.
But Bunnings is not a vet or pet store, it has absolutely no reason to allow dogs into the stores.
And as for the “one angry Facebook commenter saying this rule exists “because of some silly kid being nipped” how would they possibly know the actual story behind how a child got bitten.
Sorry but no. Dogs should not be in Bunnings or any other non-pet related store.
