Sorry to hear about your bad experiences. I don't take mine out with me much as they are fully-flighted and I've never been able to harness train them. Personally, though, I wouldn't take them inside a store, I might take them to an alfresco cafe but I don't think I'd take them anywhere else as Australia is very strict on pets. I wouldn't take them anywhere that doesn't allow little dogs, for example. We were on our way home from holidays once and we were eating takeaway at a picnic table outside of a store with our birds in a little cage and I did manage to get a lecture from a lady about how those birds should be free and in the wild. We talked calmly and gently to her and she calmed down somewhat.

Also, could I ask you to put some punctuation in your next post? Full stops would be helpful. It's a bit hard to read when there are no punctuation marks.

Take care.

I stopped at a supermarket on the way back home from the vet with my Budgie (she was fine). Could not bring myself to leave her in the car, so I put a towel over her travel cage in the shopping cart. People near me were heard to comment "There must be a bird in the store...."

Now I was told by a door greeter at Walmart that I could not bring Sunni into the store. I took her back out into the car. Then I walked back in and saw a border collie on a leash???? Seriously??? If that thing poops, it's on the floor. If mine poops, it's on me. Since then I have seen so many dogs in the store. And they cannot claim service animal on a dog that sits in a purse!! :P
Oh well. Uneducation.
