    How can that be bad....They are just jealous

    My hubby used to take his Kelpie everywhere with him, even to work (that was what they did). His dogs were secure and happy. And when he did have to leave them, they had no issues.

    Your dog is lucky to have someone who wants to spend time with their dog

    I dont think it is bad... I bet you your dog loves it too!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Not an issue Rex. As long as you take responsiblity for looking after the pooch at all times, including, but not limited to to, securing him on your ute ( assume you are a tradie), picking up his poop, keeping him from wandering away from your work sites.

    It's only an issue if you are taking him to private residences without clearing it with the people there first...if you are invited somewhere and turn up out of the blue with your dog and expect them to allow play with their dog(s) or cats(s) you may never get another invite.
    Always check first if it's okay. If you're working on the premises and the dog is happy to stay in your vehicle, there won't be any problem. If it is a construction site and is safe for your dog and none of the other contractors object, he can come out of your vehicle provided that you have him trained in recall.
    Common sense and putting safety first, you won't have any problems - don't worry what your mates say, your dog is always happier with you.

    I take my dog with me everywhere and did that with my previous dog too. There's a couple of friends' places where she is not welcome because of their cats, but all my other friends are dog lovers. There's one friend who everyone takes their dogs to and sometimes when we have a social gathering there, there can be up to 6 dogs wandering around. Love it!

    I too enjoy the company. And it is one reason why I put effort into training, because I want to be able to take her places without a hassle.

    I take my dog everywhere I can.

    If I'm going somewhere I'm not sure she can come in with me and it's too hot to leave her outside, I also take a portable crate I can set up in the shade to leave her there. Sometimes she makes the decision for me tho. She sees me loading up the car, she's had a big walk and she doesn't want to go - and if it's somewhere I know she's going to spend the whole time in the crate or the car, I leave her behind.

    My brother used to take his dog everywhere, and she'd guard all the stuff in the back of the ute from everyone. Except me.

    I take both my dogs everywhere i can also. Rex loves the car so if were heading to the Mc Donalds drive through, or popping to the dairy he comes with me. I wish i had a job that allowed me to take them to work It helps that they are so well behaved so i have better chance of taking them to cafe's etc.

    I don't think it's bad, i also get the weird looks and comments from my friends cause i try to pick places for us to meet up where i can bring my dogs. I'd prefer to hangout with my dogs than half of them anyway!

    And it's not just that I enjoy my dog's company either, I also hate leaving her by herself. I have said no to dinner invitations on work nights because I just cannot bring myself to go home, feed the dog and go out again immediately after. Wouldn't spend a whole weekend day away from her either, unless I can get someone else to mind her and keep her company.

    Its brilliant. I can take pohm everywhere, even to work. But i tend to leave her to keep Bernie company.
    Ive dragged mine around all over the place. Result. They are very confident dogs, accept change and new people, new places without batting an eye lid. They chill out mainly. Unless i have a client that is manic, then they catch that vibe, and need a brief walk to settle. Which is great, as if my dog gets wound up by mania, i must be too, so a walk is good for me between such clients.
    they each have their own tea towel. Wherever the tea towel is, is the 'on your bed' spot when we are out.
