Do any of you bring your dogs along to cruise nights? A number of our local cruise nights are put on by the Chamber of Commerce and they are always people there with dogs. We just got a new dog (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) after having to put down our 12 year old American Cocker Spaniel to cancer. My wife and kids are excited to bring the new dog with – it will give them something to do.

I personally do not care to see dogs near the cars..also it always seems that peoiple bring their dogs out on the hottest night of the summer..walking on the hot asphalt. I leave mine (2) home and take them for a good walk when I get home.

I wouldn't put a stinky, drooling, hairball in my Chevelle if I could help it... myself excluded, that is.

But as long as they're kept on a short leash at a show, I don't see the harm.

I don't take my dog, I dont let him in the Chevelle. Sometimes my wife will come down in her car and bring him along but she only stays long enough to get some ice cream and say hi to a couple folks.

Congrats on your new dog! We got out Cavalier last fall.

The show I usually go to every Fri. night down here, banned dogs 2 years ago for a lot of good reasons. People have too much time and money invested in their cars for a dog to accidently jump up on. Would you be willing to fork over 20K for a new paint job on someones car if your dog scratched it? There's a time and place for everything, and dogs at a car show isn't one of them.

The answer is that you should leave you dogs at home, too many risks involved when they are brought to a show. We at the Md Club try to encourage folks to leave em at home.

While at a cruise-in a couple years ago, a friend with a very nice AAR Cuda had a dog urinate on his aluminum wheel. Some dumbazz brought his Doberman and actually stopped and let it urinate on the wheel. He was escorted away from the cruise-in before he got his butt kicked.

Don't blame the dogs blame the owners. I take my lab all the time (hot weather permitting of course.) The women love him and he loves the attention. Great way to meet women. Gals who would not smile at ya when you don't have the dog open up instantly..."What a cute puppy".

All this lamentation in this post about bad dogs is about BAD OWNERS not bad dogs.

I dont mind the 1-10lb dogs or carry dogs but anything larger needs to stay home. Most of the people that bring their dogs now are small ones and they have them in a baby stroller???:wacko::clonk:whats up with that?

Dog's bikes, and skateboards do not belong at car shows or cruise-ins. I really wish they would ban strollers too. Yes I have kids and the youngest is 4yrs old, but it seems they always want to cut rows right next to your car.

If people wanted to see a dog, they would go to the kennel show.

However there was a lady who brought her pet skunk to the Oregon show a few years ago. As it is held at the county fairgrounds she was asked to not bring it again. And for that matter, dogs are banned from the fairgrounds due to the horses that train there.

I love animals just as much as anyone but a car show is no place for them. I could easily think of a few scenarios that would get uncomfortable real quick for the owner of the dog. As much time, effort, and financing goes into this hobby nowadays I can't understand why someone would want to take a chance of something happening by bringing a pet to a place where people hang out with their cars. And I agree kids can be a problem also but when was the last time you saw a dog grow up and buy a camaro? A child can begin their journey into the hobby by being around cars at a young age so seeing youngsters at a cruise night has reason to it. That's my 2 cents worth.

Some dogs are so adorable,,,yet, you never really know what might happen.
How many times have you heard "Well, I didn't think it would bite" ?

Some little kid bends down to love the dog and a quick SNAP, it's too late the kids face is scared for life.

We lost a great swap meet place in Kansas City because people just would not abide by the "no pets allowed rule"
Someone got bit..someone got sued and someone said "OK, that's it, no more donating our enclosed parking garage for swap meets.
One dog that would never ever bite anyone, did.

Simply put, dogs do not belong at car shows, period. I don't care how well you think you can take care of your dog, if the bastard scratches my car, you have troubles, not the least of which is the lawsuit to repaint my entire car.

You want to be a responsible pet owner, then be a responsible pet owner, realize they do NOT belong at carshows.
