Dogs, dogs, everywhere!

One of the first things you will find different when you come to Germany is that dogs are welcomed pretty much everywhere.  Don't be surprised when you go to a restaurant, even an expensive one, and see at least one dog sitting under the table at his owner's feet.  The restaurant will usually offer the dog a bowl of water.  Most of the dogs we have encountered are well behaved.  Dogs are also welcomed at the malls and in most stores.  They can ride with their owners on public transportation and are truly viewed as family members.

  1. There are tons of dogs! It is nice that overall they seem better behaved. I bet that's because people include them into their daily life more (which seems to involve more walking than in America) instead of ignoring them in the backyard.
