I took my dog into Tractor Supply last week for the first... and the last time. He doesn't get out in public much and when he does, it's generally because I know he'll get the attention he thrives on. We walked around the store and not one person paid him any attention. A couple of times he tried to go see somebody but I will only let him approach people who indicate it's OK; and nobody did. As we were leaving I did let him approach a customer at the checkout, just because he was pretty disappointed. I don't let him make a nuisance of himself but on the other hand he is a sociable dog... and I always thought TSC was supposed to be dog friendly.

We don't venture to our TSC much, just don't often have whatever we are looking for. Just after they opened we asked the guy helping us, knowing they nationality had a dog friendly policy, he responded with a "must ask the manager" spew. We didn't.

Rural King is mostly mid-west but I think they are truly dog friendly. I never took a dog there but see a few. They seem to give free dog bones and I have seen free pig ears before. I also saw a dog get into a bag of the free popcorn in the half second it took the owner to react.
I don't go to TSC much but wonder if the dog friendly thing is a response to the RK that is their competitor in some markets.
The people at our TSC are friendly to toward the dogs. No treats given, thank goodness, but they talk to the animals and make over them a bit every time I have seen or taken a pooch into the store. Gotta assume, like so many other businesses, every store is different.
