Bunnings welcomes pooches in new policy

SEEING a dog during your shopping run isn't a common sight ... so Valerie Le Hars doesn't know why dogs are allowed in Bunnings.

Bunnings has recently changed its policy to allow dogs in its store if they are "well behaved".

The Yeppoon woman, who shops at the hardware chain regularly, didn't think having dogs inside Bunnings would turn out to be a good idea.

Valerie isn't alone thinking the policy might cause a few issues.

Rebbecca Jones: I think, if ppl read the statement Bunnings put out, they could use their brains...

Bunnings said, while they don't encourage you to take your dog, it has became "pet friendly"

It's a great idea, for tradies who always have their dogs with them. Loz Batley: 1. They will wee on everything. 2. People with dog allergies will be lost as a customer. 3. Some people are petrified of dogs. 4. Dog attacks 5. What do dogs need in Bunnings anyway?

Amanda Miller: I don't see the need to allow dogs in the store - it's fraught with issues. If anything, they could provide more covered parks for people travelling with animals.

Joby Finlay: No.. why would they allow it? Not everyone likes dogs and not all dogs like people, even though their owners believe they'd never hurt anyone.

Lulu Lara Armstrong: I took my dog there on Sunday. She loves going out and is no trouble at all.

Jennifer Giulieri: Just leave your dog at home. My dog is loved and well cared for but he doesn't go everywhere we go, nor should he. He's a dog.
