Should Dogs Be Allowed In Nail Salons?

There is a lot of debate on whether or not dogs should be allowed in nail salons. Believe it or not, most nail salons allow dogs as long as the owner cleans up after the dog’s pee and poop. It would even be better if the dog is adequately trained so it won’t put out the dirt inside the salon. If the salon is full of customers, you know someone will come in and clean the floor frequently. When that happens the person should also sweep the dog’s hair if it is shedding. There will come a time when they do that and they will shed a lot of hair. Needless to say, the salon is the best place to do it as it is full of hair so the janitor would know what to do with it.

You’re rarely going to come across a nail salon that won’t allow dogs. They won’t really do much except bark at strangers but that would depend on the dog breed. It would be a different story if it is a pretty big dog as some people may get scared of it. However, if it is a toy dog then there should not be any cause for concern. Besides, they are there to be the center of attraction. The manicurists who have nothing else to do can play with the dog but should watch out in case the dog bites at strangers. Of course, the pet won’t give any warning. You can’t really blame the dog for doing so because the pet does not know the person.

If it is a medium-sized dog then it should be kept on a leash. It may wander off when someone opens the door. The last thing you would want to happen is for it to go to the streets while you are in the middle of your nails getting done. You may look terrible when you are trying to chase your dog. While all of that is happening, everyone would stare at you. Even if you do catch up with your dog, it would still become one of the most embarrassing moments of your life. The important thing is that your dog is safe and sound though. When that is over, you will learn your lesson of asking someone to always watch your dog while you are getting your nails done. That person does not have to be an expert with dogs. He just needs to block the door when the pet tries to get out.

You will never come across a salon that says no pets are allowed inside. Those signs are usually put up by restaurants who had bad experiences with dogs taking a pee inside the place and the owners ended up refusing to clean up the mess. Of course, the two places are pretty much different from one another. The big difference is that the salon is one place women always go to and women rarely bring big dogs. They usually have toy dogs.
