The parents of a 13-month-old girl who was bitten by a dog while they were inside the Home Depot store in Glendale are questioning the store's policy of allowing dogs to be inside the store.According to Home Depot's Consumer Hotline, the corporate policy is that dogs are not allowed inside the store for the safety of customers and employees. However, when 7NEWS called the Glendale Home Depot, we were told dogs are allowed.On Wednesday morning, Home Depot spokeswoman Kathryn Gallagher said there was no "formal" dog policy and sent the following statement:
- "The Home Depot places a priority on providing a safe environment for our customers and associates. As a practice, we do not allow animals in our stores. However, service dogs and dogs that are non-disruptive, secured properly and under the control of their owner, may be tolerated in the store, at the discretion of the manager on duty and if there is not a disruption to our other customers."
