Playing devil's advocate here, what about service dogs?? Service dogs (not just seeing eye dogs) are permitted BY LAW into any establishment. Would you not patronize a food service establishment because they have to allow service animals? How do you know when you walk into a fine dining/high end restaurant that there isn't a service dog under a table.
I have a service dog and am hobby baker/decorator, not legal to sell from home in my state. I give my cakes as gifts and NEVER once has anyone ever found a stray dog hair in my cakes or cookies.
This wasn't intended to add fuel to the fire, it's just something I have to deal with every day because most people do not realize that some wheelchair users qualify for a service dog and I just happen to be one of them.
