I learnt something yesterday and had to check it out, it seemed so alien to me and others in this country. A guy came into my shop (which is also dog friendly) and asked if there was anywhere he could go to eat that didn’t have dogs at their owners feet.
New Zealanders don’t like dogs much, they’re not allowed into their town centers.
I had to check this out, surely this couldn’t be true but yes on searching google I discovered it was indeed true. Althought this news clip about Taupo was worth adding here because it’s at least one town that’s bucking the trend. So well done Taupo.
Now I’m off to sort the dog treats and put a bowl of water out for my doggy customers that stop by regularly. Dogs welcome in the UK.
