I am so proud of Thor. I took him to PETCO, and he was such a good dog.
PETCO, originally from the US, opened several stores in Monterrey, México about 2 years ago. One of the most surprising aspects of it –for me– is that they welcome dogs in the store. You could actually take your dog shopping there. I’d never heard of a store that allowed that in Mexico!
I wanted to take Thor but worried that he would be hard to control. He’s a bit of a beast at 95 pounds (43kg). And while he has a very chill temperament at home, I worried that he would go nuts in a place where he could smell dogs, cats, fish, parrots and miscellaneous birds…
But, no. He behaved beautifully. He had to smell the entire store before we could go get his treats, but it was fun to see him so amused.
We went at a good hour, too. Right after lunch, so there weren’t many people. I guess a truer test will happen once we go on a busy day.
For now, it was awesome.
