|Guest, I live out in the middle of nowhere too.
Personally, for outdoor areas, I just take my dogs even if I'm unsure as to whether or not they allow dogs. If people say something, complain, or give me a fine, I'm ok with that, and I'll just move on. I have yet to have that happen though.
For indoors, I just don't do it. Most stores here have signs in the windows saying "No pets allowed, service animals welcome." So, that'll let you know if you want to look.
As for the bank, do you guys actually go into the bank? I went through the drive thru with my dogs, and the lady gave them 2 milk bones.
I wouldn't bring my dogs in though. Since the bank got robbed, they've become really really "uptight" about people coming in and going. You walk in and there's like 15 cameras pointed at you, you have to walk through double doors with like huge bolts and locks on them. Feels like you're in some disinfecting chamber or something...just gives you an uneasy feeling.
The only restaurant that has outside seating here is a Mexican Restaurant...but you have to walk through the restaurant to get to the outdoor seating so..
I have found out about a lot of "secret" spots to go hiking from other dog owners here though. Neighbors that I just have a brief chat with as I pass by. So, when you get a dog, you may get tips from other dog owners in your area.
