I have one too. It is actually spelled Shih Tzu, even though most people pronouce it with the 'it' sound at the end instead of the 'ih'.

I got licensed just to be able to say I am. I know you do not have to be licensed in Ohio to sell baked goods. But I think the cc person I was asking about the pets is licensed.

You know this reminds me of certain people I know that would not eat leftover food made at home because they are afraid to get sick, but eat at restaurants and save the leftovers for the next day??? How do you know what happens behind a kitchen restaurant. Like someone here posted, how you know the employees wash their hands, etc. etc.
It's also funny how some people are quick to judge others, but huh? no photos of their cakes in their profile?? I just think it boils down to common sense.

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.

I think this is a really interesting point. Many of my local grocery stores and restaurants allow service dogs to accompany disabled patrons. I'm not 100% sure, but I think they have to in accordance with the ADA, just like they have to provide wheelchair accessibility, etc.

Would anyone here with a storefront deny a blind person with a service dog access to their bakery (and risk a discrimination lawsuit)? detective.gif

So what do photos in their profiles have to do with ANY of this?

Pffft, some people think that if you don't have photos you're not a real person or you can't decorate and shouldn't have an opinion or something. I don't have time to upload photos, personally, and there are plenty of links if you want to go look at my pictures on my website. I never look at photos here, honestly, I just stick to the forums.

Jentreu- just wanted to say I am sorry for your loss. If they ever pass the laws here and do not permit pets I will have a tough decision to face. My pet or my dream. She will ultimatley win as she has my heart but it would really, really suck.

Off the original topic, but please remember Ohio has 2 ways to sell baked goods from a home: the cottage law and the home baker law. The home baker law says no pets, but the cottage law does not. In addition, if you are selling via the cottage law you have to provide a list of ingredients.
Check it out- 2 laws, 2 ways.

In Oregon, No pets at all in the home. Outside ok if they do not come in. Each state is different.

In Ohio you have to do the ingredient list no matter if you are licensed or if you do the cottage industry thing. It is required both ways.

The only difference on that is that if you are licensed, you do not have to have the "THIS ITEM IS PRODUCED IN A HOME BAKERY" statement on the label ( if you are doing the cottage industry thing, you HAVE to have this on your label).

The thing with pet hair is... if you have an air conditioned home (as most homes are these days) those little pesky hair can travel by way of the circulated air in your home. Not to mention traveling on the clothes of family members. I, for one, love dogs, but I do not want to eat anything with doggy hairs on it or human hair either.

Of course you would have to allow a service dog in; the difference is that the service dog would be in the front of the store, not in the kitchen area. The food should all be in display cases or otherwise protected from the dog by proper packaging. Plus, service dogs are extremely well trained, so they are less likely to jump up on a counter and start eating your cake than a typical pet dog.

Exactly Saffronica. A customer with a service coming into a resturant, is a much different thing then a restaurant with a pet in it. But hey, everyone can do as you please. For me, it's NOT about cleanliness as some keep trying to stress. It's about client perception, period.

I had a consultation last night with the MOB. She asked if I had in pets. I told her I don't, to be a licensed home baker in the state of Ohio you are not allowed pets. She said she had a tasting at someone's house a few days ago and the owner had a cat in the house. The owner assured the MOB that the cat was not allowed in the kitchen while any baking or decorating was going on. The MOB said she wouldn't consider anyone that had pets in their home.

That was her opinion. Some feel differently. But in this case, with this person, had I had a pet, I wouldn't be considered for the wedding.
