A lot of times it has happened to me that on arrivel al a place I have been confronted with looks of disapproval, because people are not accustomed to the fact that one can go to different places, such as restaurants, banks, or shops with their pets. However, minutes later when they see that my dogs behave correctly the looks turn to those of curiosity as well as acceptance. This is why I think that we need to take the first steps towards an animal conscious society, in wich animals form part of our daily lives and are not mere objects that wait around all day for a five minute walk. It is possible to enjoy our dogs on a day to day basis.
From my point of view, it is equally annoying that a person gives a disdainful look, as a person that doen't make sure that their dog behaves in a civilized manner.
Dog owners need to understand that not eveybody sees animal in the same way. A lot of people have had bad experiencies or simply don't share our point of view. For these reasons we must be responsible and always keep our dogs under control.
Having dogs can become a source of satisfaction, try to teach yours and you will see that I am rigth.
